Langzeitstudie zu EHV-1

Aktualisiert: 12. Juli 2020

Immunantwort bei infiszierten und natürlichen EHV-1 infizierten Pferden



Equid alphaherpesvirus 1 (EHV-1) is a major viral infectious agent in horses, causing

upper respiratory tract infection, abortion, neonatal death or neurologic disorders in

horses worldwide. Infections can affect individual animals or become evident as outbreaks, affecting several horses in the same premise. While respiratory disease due to EHV-1 infection in general is self-limiting and of limited importance, abortion and equine

herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy (EHM) are dreaded sequelae that can have a major

impact on the horse industry and equine welfare, including animal deaths, quarantine

measures and high treatment expenses. Many aspects concerning the epidemiology of

the virus and the immune response in the host are still unresolved.
