Infectious Bovine Rhinothracheitis (IBR) caused by bovine herpesvirus 1 (BoHV-1) infection is distributed worldwide. BoHV-1 either alone or in association with other respiratory cattle pathogens causes significant economic losses to the livestock industry. The aim of this work was to validate a guinea pig model as an alternative method to the current BoHV-1(More)
Different immunomodulators have been previously tested in our laboratory as enhancers of the specific immune response to FMDV vaccines in a murine model [2-4]. Here, we present results of two of these immunomodulators, a water-soluble fraction of the cell wall of Mycobacterium sp. (WSF) and a synthetic lipoamide, Avridine (AV), which were tested in bovines(More)
The epidemiological analysis of the cattle population during the eradication plan of foot and mouth disease (FMD) in Argentina clearly indicated a higher incidence of the disease in animals within their first year of age. It is important to improve the efficacy of the vaccination in those animals. In a previous report, we have shown the effect of an(More)
It is well documented that adjuvants improve the immune response generated by traditional viral vaccines, but less is known about the effects of adjuvants on the immune response elicited by DNA vaccines. In this study, we have investigated the use of RN-205 (immunomodulator containing a membrane rich in lipopolysaccharide from gram-negative bacteria) as an(More)
Foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) is the cause of a widespread infectious disease affecting cloven-hoofed animals. It is controlled by vaccination with immune-inactivated virus grown in tissue culture. However, peptide vaccines represent a safer alternative to the current virus-inactivated immunogens. Their design requires the identification and(More)
