Bluetongue

The third volume in the Institute of Animal Health (IAH) Biology of Animal Infections Series, Bluetongue discusses one of the most economically important diseases of domesticated livestock. Affecting primarily sheep particularly the improved mutton and wool breeds, it is now endemic in Africa, India, the Middle and Far East, Australia and the Americas, and over the last six years has caused a series of outbreaks throughout the Mediterranean region and central Europe. Bluetongue represent a paradigm not only for the other orbiviruses (such as African horse sickness virus, which shares the same vector species) but also for other insect transmitted diseases, including those of humans. The only single definitive work that provides both historical and up to date data on the disease Describes the latest developments in epidemiological modelling, molecular epidemiology and vaccine development, as well as explaining the current global epidemiology of the disease Outlines the importance and possible mechanisms of overwintering, and the impact of global warming on the vectors and virus distribution

Bluetongue viruses (BTV) cause diseases that have serious economic consequences in ruminants (sheep, cattle) in many parts of the world. The incidence of bluetongue disease affects the international movement of animals and germ plasm. Although the etiological agent of the disease was isolated in 1900 and preliminary biochemical characterizations were pub lished as early as in 1969, most of the current understanding of the molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics of BTV has evolved only recently. Triggered by the modern techniques of molecular

Bluetongue, African Horse Sickness, and Related Orbiviruses: Proceedings of the Second International Symposium provides the latest scientific information about this group of Orbiviruses, which are transmitted by species of Culicoides (biting midges) and are important causes of disease in domestic livestock and wildlife. Originally presented at the Second International Symposium on the Orbivirus held in Paris, France in June 1991, the book reviews the history and latest data on epizootiology; clinical syndromes and host responses; vector biology, competence, genetics, and capacity;

Bluetongue (BT) is an infectious, viral and vector-borne disease of improved breeds of sheep and some species of deer that is of major international importance. The infection is usually unapparent in cattle, which acts as reservoir for the virus. However, some serotypes such as serotype 8 (BTV-8), which recently caused a severe epizootic of BT in northern Europe, exhibit a more important virulence in cattle. Consequently, the redaction of a scientific booklet describing Bluetongue is of great utility for veterinarians and
