Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
We are delighted to invite you to submit your next publication to the journal Vaccines for a Special Issue entitled “Porcine Vaccines: Enhancing Health, Productivity, and Welfare”. Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome, porcine viral diarrhea, African swine fever, circovirus-related diseases, and others, seriously harm and restrict the healthy development of the pig industry. In recent years, many variants of porcine viruses have emerged and immunologically escaped from the current available vaccines, causing new challenges in the prevention of porcine diseases and required the updating of existing vaccines, antigens, or adjuvants. DIVA vaccines, multivalent vaccines, and antigen-precise-designed vaccines are the focus of current porcine vaccine research. In addition, oral, spray, and other needle-free vaccination delivery methods have seen strong demand for animal disease control in the future.
This Special Issue will focus on porcine vaccines, including vaccine design, development, effect evaluation, small-animal replacement models, DIVA, vaccination delivery methods, and so on. Original research articles, and comprehensive reviews are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
