Abstract

Latent herpes virus infections are of great importance in animal production and the phenomena of latency, reactivation and re-excretion of latent viruses impede their control. Animals react to these infections by an immune response that can prevent not only the deleterious effects of an eventual reinfection but, sometimes, also, viral re-excretion and consequently dissemination. Immunity to herpes viruses is therefore of primary importance and the comprehension of the underlying phenomena is the key to rational prophylaxis. This book contains the reports given during the CEC Agricultural Research seminar held in Brussels on the 4th and 5th December, 1984. The seminar had as a central theme the immunology of herpes virus infections. Sessions 1 to 4 are on the different features of the immune response to herpes virus infections in general. Sessions 5 to 7 deal with some peculiar aspects of the immune response to specific herpesvirus infections of domestic animals. The last session gives a summary of the problems exposed during the seminar and forecasts further research.
