New approaches to Porcine Respiratory Disease challenge models
Porcine respiratory disease causes considerable economic losses worldwide and often occurs following exposure to a combination of different pathogens including Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and Pasteurella multocida

In an attempt to mimic respiratory disease more consistent with field type infections for use in efficacy testing of veterinary medicinal products we have developed and validated models with sequential challenges in piglets of two different pathogens types.
Eurostars funding for Streptococcus suis vaccine project

We have been awarded funding through the Eurostars-2 program to collaborate with Swedish based Intervacc to support the further development of Intervacc`s innovative vaccine to protect piglets against infection caused by the bacterial pathogen Streptococcus suis.

The Eurostars grant will fund a number of important steps including pre-clinical efficacy studies in piglets, analysis of the immune response and vaccination of pregnant sows.

Moredun Scientific will develop new models of S.suis infection during the project which will be added to our portfolio of disease models available for use in client studies.

Mannhaemia haemolytica challenge model

A recent publication shows the results of a study treating experimentally induced bovine respiratory disease in calves with a new combined therapeutic product. The study was conducted at Moredun Scientific using our Mannhaemia haemolytica challenge model.

The model is available for use in contract efficacy studies for vaccines and therapeutic products. Please contact us for further details.

International Veterinary Vaccinology Network

We were delighted to be sponsors of the UK & International Veterinary Vaccinology Network Conference held in London in January 2019.

The conference brought together individuals from across the world with the aim of improving vaccines for livestock and zoonotic diseases both in the UK and internationally.
