  • Researchers at The Pirbright Institute have developed a vectored vaccine, which uses a non-harmful virus (adenovirus prime and modified vaccinia Ankara boost) to deliver eight strategically selected genes from the African swine fever virus (ASFV) genome into pig cells. Once inside the cell, the genes produce viral proteins which primes the pig immune cells to […]
