Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) is a highly contagious viral infection of cloven-hoofed animals. FMDV outbreaks cause significant and devastating economic impacts worldwide. The most effective and widely accepted way to respond to outbreaks is through the use of chemically inactivated vaccination of domestic livestock. However, these inactivated vaccines are slow-acting and do not always permit a distinction between infected and vaccinated animals. Therefore, it is essential to develop new rapid vaccines and control strategies that could confer early protection and rapidly stop disease spread.
This Special Issue will cover the FMDV determinant of replication and pathogenesis and how this information facilitates next-generation FMDV vaccine and biotherapeutic developments. We particularly encourage the submission of manuscripts focused on improved control strategies addressing important gaps in the current inactivated FMDV vaccine including, but not limited to, duration of immunity, cross-reactivity, correlates of protection, early protection, antigen load, immunization responses, and safer marker vaccines.
