Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) has been shown to replicate in embryo culture systems and remain associated with bovine embryos developing in vitro. In this study, novel antiviral agents were evaluated for capability to inhibit replication of BVDV without affecting embryonic development. Serial concentrations of 2-[5(6)-{2-imidazolinyl}-2-benzimidazolyl]-5-(4-aminophenyl)furan (DB456) or 2-(4-[2-imidazolinyl]phenyl)-5-(4-methoxyphenyl)furan (DB606) were prepared in IVC medium. Then, bovine…

TLDR
This pilot study indicates that DB772 temporarily prevented acute disease due to BVDV, but carries a significant concern of renal toxicity.
Normal calves produced after transfer of in vitro fertilized embryos cultured with an antiviral compound.
TLDR
Evaluating the capability of IVF embryos to develop into normal, weaned calves after exposure to antiviral concentrations of DB606 during IVC concluded that bovine embryo cultures can be safely supplemented with antiviral Concentrations DB606; addition ofDB606 agent might prevent viral transmission if BVDV were inadvertently introduced into the embryo culture system.
Normal reproductive capacity of heifers that originated from in vitro fertilized embryos cultured with an antiviral compound.
TLDR
Results indicate that culture of bovine-IVF embryos in DB606 does not impair future reproductive capacity of resulting heifers.
Antiviral Treatment of Calves Persistently Infected with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus
TLDR
Results demonstrate that DB772 administration is safe and exhibits antiviral properties in PI calves while facilitating the rapid development of viral resistance to this novel therapeutic agent.
The means of combating persistent infection of viral diarrhea
TLDR
Application of antiviral drugs is one of the ways to decrease economic losses caused by biological product contamination, the use of persistently infected animals for pedigree purposes and restrictions in international cattle trade.
Molecular Modeling of Small Molecules as BVDV RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase Allosteric Inhibitors
Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), a major pathogen of cattle, is a well-characterized pestivirus which has been used as a good model virus for HCV. The RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) plays a
Potential applications for antiviral therapy and prophylaxis in bovine medicine
TLDR
This review summarizes the current state of knowledge of antiviral compounds against several key bovine pathogens and the potential for commercial antiviral applications in the prevention and control of several selected bovines diseases.
Risk assessment of transmission of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) in abattoir-derived in vitro produced embryos.

TLDR
To estimate the risk of producing infected recipients and persistently infected calves from abattoir-derived IVP embryos, a quantitative risk assessment model using Microsoft Excel and Palisade @Risk was developed and assumed some of the complexities of the IVP process.
Database construction of small–molecule inhibitors as bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) RNA-dependent RNA polymerase: a cheminformatics approach
TLDR
A database of 655 small-molecule NS5B inhibitors having definitive activity values, structural parameters, and physicochemical properties associated with their absorption and permeability through a cheminformatics approach is constructed to provide insight for allosteric NS5Bs of BVDV with an accessible platform on the web.
Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV): epidemiologic concerns relative to semen and embryos.
TLDR
An overview of the risks of transmitting this virus by AI or production and transfer of embryos and summarizes the precautions needed to prevent such transmissions of disease from occurring is provided.

Detection of Inhibition of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus by Aromatic Cationic Molecules
TLDR
The screening method identified compounds that exhibited inhibition of BVDV at nanomolar concentrations while exhibiting no cytotoxicity at 25 μM concentrations and require further investigation to determine their mechanism of action, in vivo activity, and specific activity against hepatitis C virus.
Replication and persistence of different strains of bovine viral diarrhea virus in an in vitro embryo production system.
TLDR
All strains of BVDV persisted and replicated in the embryo culture environment, but cleavage beyond the 4-cell stage, blastocyst development and hatching varied among cultures contaminated with different strains of virus.
Noncytopathic bovine viral diarrhea virus in a system for in vitro production of bovine embryos.
TLDR
In this study, follicular oocytes collected from 10 cows were matured and fertilized in vitro and presumptive zygotes were cultured for 7 d, and infections of oviductal cells were inapparent and did not significantly affect rates of cleavage or development.
Noncytopathogenic and cytopathogenic bovine viral diarrhea-mucosal disease viruses do not affect in vitro embryonic development into the blastocyst stage.
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that BVD-MDV replication in cells around embryos has no effect on bovine embryo development.
Quantity and infectivity of embryo-associated bovine viral diarrhea virus and antiviral influence of a blastocyst impede in vitro infection of uterine tubal cells.
TLDR
Results indicate that insufficient quantity and reduced infectivity of embryo-associated virus as well as an antiviral influence of intact IVF blastocysts may all contribute to failure to infect the uterine tubal cells of UTC in vitro.
In vitro fertilization of ova from cows experimentally infected with a non-cytopathic strain of bovine viral diarrhea virus
TLDR
All follicular fluids and cumulus—oocyte complexes collected from infected animals tested positive for the presence of the virus, but embryos produced by in vitro fertilization 7 days after in vitro co-culture tested negative.
Detection and characterization of pestivirus contaminations in human live viral vaccines.
TLDR
The results indicate that contamination with BVDV of FCS used in vaccine production does not appear to be of immediate concern to human health and gamma-irradiation of F CS destroys BVDVs particles and is also effective in preventing the presence of BVDv RNA in the vaccines.
Contamination of commercially available fetal bovine sera with bovine viral diarrhea virus genomes: implications for the study of hepatitis C virus in cell cultures.
TLDR
Most commercially available bovine sera are contaminated with BVDV and, although there is no evidence that the virus is infectious, bovian sera should be screened for this virus by RT-PCR when used in conjunction with HCV or for the development or production of vaccine.
Experimental Infection of Calves with Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus Type-2 (BVDV-2) Isolated from a Contaminated Vaccine
TLDR
Evidence is provided of the infective nature of the contaminant BVDV-2 and of its potential to generate disease outbreaks when inoculated into susceptible animals when inoculating intranasally into four 3-month-old calves.
