Periodic Report - RP/PPR MARKVAC (Development of marker vaccines, companion diagnostic tests and improvement of epidemiological knowledge to facilitate control of rinderpest and peste des petits…)

Project ID: 3670
Funded under: FP6-INCO

Abstract

This is the periodic report for the MARKVAC project which aimed to develop marker vaccines capable of preventing RP and PPR infections and also companion tests to differentiate between infected and vaccinated animals. The report covers the aims and ambitions of the project. In addition to listing the project results so far, it notes that: The positive impact of this research will be best seen in areas experiencing the diseases for focussed ring vaccination to control or eradicate the disease, combined with appropriate companion tests that allow differentiation of vaccinated from infected animals.
