    I like the review comment “”As the saying goes, human beings are born as originals and die as copies. Not Hilary Koprowski.”

    Thanks so much for this list, I am discovering more and more podcasts.

  • James Ferguson DVM

    I enjoy your podcast a great deal and have listened to it since Dec 2008. I recetnly heard you discuss West Nile vaccines for horses. The first Vaccine that came out was and is made by a cvaccine company called Fort Doges. It is a simple killed vaccine. Its cam out within a year or so of the out break of West Nile virus in the US. It isnt an elegant vaccine. Aobut 3 or 4 years ago another company called Merial came out with a version made by the use of a canarypox virus. Now how often should a horse be vaccinesed. Some veterinarians suggested at one point every 6 months. The scince really has not bben there. SO the practice is to just do it wvery year

    A West Nile virus (WNV) recombinant canarypox virus vaccine elicits WNV-specific neutralizing antibodies and cell-mediated immune responses in the horse.El Garch H, Minke JM, Rehder J, Richard S, Edlund Toulemonde C, Dinic S, Andreoni C, Audonnet JC, Nordgren R, Juillard V.
    Merial SAS, R&D, 254 rue Marcel Mérieux, 69342 Cedex 07 Lyon, France.

    Successful vaccination against West Nile virus (WNV) requires induction of both neutralizing antibodies and cell-mediated immune responses. In this study, we have assessed the ability of a recombinant ALVAC-WNV vaccine (RECOMBITEK WNV) to elicit neutralizing antibodies and virus-specific cell-mediated immune responses in horses. In addition, we examined whether prior exposure to ALVAC-WNV vaccine would inhibit B and cell-mediated immune responses against the transgene product upon subsequent booster immunizations with the same vaccine. The results demonstrated that the recombinant ALVAC-WNV vaccine induced neutralizing antibodies and prM/E insert-specific IFN-gamma(+) producing cells against WNV in vaccinated horses. Prior exposure to ALVAC-WNV vaccine did not impair the ability of horses to respond to two subsequent booster injections with the same vaccine, although anti-vector-specific antibody and cell-mediated immune responses were induced in vaccinated horses. This report describes, for the first time, the induction of antigen-specific cell-mediated responses following vaccination with an ALVAC virus recombinant vaccine encoding WNV antigens. Moreover, we showed that both WNV-specific IFN-gamma producing cells and anti-WNV neutralizing antibody responses, are not inhibited by subsequent vaccinations with the same vector vaccine.

    I enjoy your podcast a great deal and have listened to it since Dec 2008. I recetnly heard you discuss West Nile vaccines for horses. The first Vaccine that came out was and is made by a cvaccine company called Fort Doges. It is a simple killed vaccine. Its cam out within a year or so of the out break of West Nile virus in the US. It isnt an elegant vaccine. Aobut 3 or 4 years ago another company called Merial came out with a version made by the use of a canarypox virus. Now how often should a horse be vaccinesed. Some veterinarians suggested at one point every 6 months. The scince really has not bben there. SO the practice is to just do it wvery year
