The successful vector vaccines symposium organised by Ceva this October in San Diego can now be viewed online at www.vector-vaccines.com.

The scientific web seminar, allows participants to gain first hand knowledge from the experts who presented during the symposium: Dr. Jagdev Sharma, (Arizona State University, USA) underlines the advantages of using HVT as a vector to control infectious diseases such as Newcastle Disease, Avian Influenza and Infectious Bursal Disease in poultry. HVT vaccines make mass application possible in the hatchery. Dr Deoki N. Tripathy (DVM, MS, PHD, Diplomate ACVM, ACPV) highlights the interest of using the Fowl Pox virus as a vector due to its efficacy, safety and cost of application.

The benefits of vector vaccines demonstrated in the lab and field were presented by Prof. Thierry Van den Berg (CODA-SERVA, Belgium), Dr. Gregg Cutler (Cutler Associates), Dr. Jack Rosenberger (Aviserve LLC, Delaware, USA), Dr. Tom Holder (independent consultant in the US) and Dr. Carlos Barranon of PATSA SA in Mexico.

The vector vaccine symposium hosted 280 participants from diverse backgrounds including poultry production, poultry health, regulatory authorities, leading research institutes and universities. The event created an opportunity to share information and experiences between leading scientists and poultry professionals about the use of vector vaccines in poultry today.
