Attenuated vaccines based on Salmonella deletion mutant strains (with defective multi drug resistance (MDR) efflux pump systems)
COLIGO interferes with the attachment of F18+ E coli to the pig’s intestinal epithelium. In vivo results demonstrate it significantly reduces duration of shedding and the quantity of F18+ E coli bacteria that are colonising the intestine and being shed in the environment.
The PRRS-virus can infect the cells via the natural route due to the presence of both sialoadhesin and CD163, the two receptors that are essential for binding, internalization and multiplication
Our technology enables you to check the antigenicity (efficacy) and safety of your inactivated viral vaccine in vitro
We describe monoclonal antibodies that can be used to identify antigenic differences between PCV2 strains
Ostertagia ostertagi is one of the most important gastrointestinal nematodes for cattle worldwide. As Ostertagia ostertagi is present on pasture, all grazing cattle in temperate climate regions are exposed to the parasite
PROVAXS-Ghent University has concluded a partnership agreement with the Swedish veterinary diagnostic company, Boehringer Ingelheim Svanova for the commercial launch of a new ELISA kit. The ELISA was developed at the Laboratory of Parasitology of Professor Jozef Vercruysse at Ghent University
At the Laboratory of Parasitology we we have developed an ELISA test that enables us to measure the exposure of pigs to Ascaris suum. The relevance of such a test for pig production is described in the attached document
Our technology enables controlled transfer of biological compounds through the intestinal (mucosal) barrier
A new technology for the induction of high affinity isotype switched antibodies and long lasting antigen presentation based on CD169-targeting
We have developed a codon-optimized, MOMP-based DNA vaccine that significantly protects birds (Psittaciformes) against a high challenge with the zoonotic pathogen Chlamydophila psittaci (Cp psittaci)
The vaccine consists of a combination of NetB and alpha-toxin, both detoxified
We developed Salmonella Typhimurium strains of which the humoral response elicited in pigs can easily be differentiated from the humoral response, elicited by a wildtype fieldstrain.
Modular poly-electrolyte microparticle system for multi-component encapsulation including antigens and molecular adjuvants
As a proof of concept we have developed antibodies against F4 fimbriae of Escherichia coli in seeds of Arabidopsis
