Vaccine for Schmallenberg virus on its way?

Vaccine for Schmallenberg virus on its way? | Virology and Bioinformatics from Virology.ca | Scoop.it

Virologists are meeting in Leylstad, the Netherlands, this week to discuss Schmallenberg virus, which belongs to a virus family never seen in Europe before. Three companies are already testing candidate vaccines. Normally these would take years to come to market but faster approval could stop the virus taking hold.

Plants: the clean, green way to go. We are presently working on Rift Valley fever virus and have a proposal in for Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus, both bunyaviruses in good standing. Like Schmallenberg.
