Infectious bursal disease virus: new method developed to screen vaccine candidates

Researchers at The Pirbright Institute have developed new tools and techniques to determine the breadth of immune responses produced by vaccines against different variants of infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV). Their study is published in the Journal of Virology. Eight IBDV genogroups have been identified and there are several variants of IBDV spreading in different […]

Platform technologies in veterinary vaccinology – review.

A review commissioned by STAR-IDAZ IRC on vaccine platforms has been published in the journal Vaccine (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.vaccine.2022.03.059). Vaccine platforms provide exciting opportunities to speed up the delivery of new vaccines particularly in the response to new and emerging diseases. The paper, Applications of platform technologies in veterinary vaccinology and the benefits for one health, was […]

Infectious bronchitis virus: increasing vaccine heat resilience could improve performance

Studies from The Pirbright Institute and the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute show that two vaccines against specific strains of infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) do not offer complete protection against a third strain, and that this may be partly down to the temperature range the vaccine virus can survive in. Commercial IBV vaccines are currently […]
