EpiVax, Zoetis collaborate on device that predicts PCV2 vaccine protection


EpiVax, Inc. and Zoetis, are happy to announce an unique collaboration to develop CircoMatch, a bioinformatics device that predicts the protection of porcine circovirus kind 2 vaccines towards discipline isolates of PCV2. The brand new device offers a fast turnaround, highly effective means to offer close to real-time predictive effectiveness information so swine veterinarians and producers could make knowledgeable selections in vaccination applications.

CircoMatch applies the EpiVax EpiCC (Epitope Content material Comparability) device and EpiVax PigMatrix algorithm in a custom-built web site, which performs an in depth comparability between PCV2 vaccines and circulating discipline strains of the PCV2 virus. These proprietary computational instruments enable for a sensible prediction of effectiveness for current industrial vaccines and should help within the improvement of vaccines which can be extra efficacious throughout completely different viral variants.

PCV2 could cause vital manufacturing points on farms, together with struggling and weight reduction in rising pigs brought on by subclinical infections, reproductive failure in sows, producing vital financial losses to farmers. Present vaccines assist in lowering pig mortality mitigating financial losses, nevertheless, as a consequence of steady viral evolution, current vaccines have various effectiveness towards the numerous rising new discipline strains of PCV2. CircoMatch ends in a fast turnaround, a strong means for Zoetis to offer veterinarians and producers with predictive effectiveness information to allow them to make knowledgeable selections about their vaccination applications.   

Zoetis and EpiVax can be sharing extra particulars on this new collaboration through the upcoming Convention of Analysis Staff in Animal Ailments assembly in Chicago, Jan. 22-24.
