Researchers in China are reporting positive results with their recently developed vaccine against African swine fever (ASF).
Chinese scientists are reporting initial successful trials with a new vaccine to protect pigs against the African swine fever (ASF) virus.
A study carried out at the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute demonstrated that a high dose of the vaccine was effective, according to South China Morning Post. All the vaccinated pigs developed detectable antibodies, and survived the virus infection. In contrast, all of the unvaccinated controls died within 12 days of the viral challenge.
