Does prevalence of influenza A virus at weaning influence disease transmission rates, clinical manifestation of disease, and production performance?
Influenza is a major respiratory disease of pigs. Influenza causes reduction in pig’s performance and is a public health concern given that strains with pandemic potential can emerge in pigs. The...

Broadly protective nasal mucosal vaccine for influenza A virus of swine
Influenza A virus of swine (IAV-S) is widespread and causes significant losses to swine producers. Besides its economic burden, the virus also poses a great threat to public health due to its...

Evaluation of influenza dynamics in exhibition swine at jackpot shows
Pigs play a critical role in the ecology and epidemiology of influenza A viruses (IAVs) by serving as a source of novel reassortant viruses infecting humans. Agricultural fairs and livestock...

A candidate swine influenza virus vaccine: in vivo evaluation of novel chimeric hemagglutinins expressed by parainfluenza virus 5 (PIV5) vector
The goal of this project was to evaluate candidate influenza vaccines that induce broad immunity against multiple influenza viruses in pigs. These vaccines have been designed to induce immune...

Development of swine influenza virus platform vector vaccines to control swine influenza virus and porcine epidemic diarrhea virus
Influenza A virus (IAV) causes significant losses to the swine industry. Here we constructed a novel attenuated live IAV vaccine designed to elicit an immune response to conserved IAV proteins by...

Live-animal assay for identifying correlates of cross-protection for swine influenza virus vaccines when vaccinated in the presence of maternal antibody.
Experimental live-attenuated influenza virus (LAIV) vaccines, delivered into the nose, have been shown protect pigs against influenza infection, more so than traditional inactivated commercial...

Epidemiological surveillance of influenza A viruses in pigs entering swine exhibitions
Swine play a key role in the evolution and ecology of influenza A virus (IAV) infecting humans as pigs are a host species in which reassortment of the IAV segmented genome commonly occurs. Due to the...
