Equine Arteritis Virus (EVA) Information Links

In light of recent conversations and concerns surrounding Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA), I went into “research mode” and scoured the internet (and even a few books!!) to find out as much as I could about EVA, including current research, vaccination recommendations, and the guidelines covering testing and breeding. I compiled a list that I am sharing with anyone who is interested.


KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!! Happy Reading.


EVA Research Papers:


http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S073708061630243X August 2016 article that looks at host factors that can contribute to a stallion’s susceptibility to becoming a persistent carrier of EAV.


http://www.j-evs.com/article/S0737- 0806(16)00154-4/abstract 2016 article that outlines a promising unique therapeutic approach to clearing EAV in the persistently infected stallion.

http://www.j-evs.com/article/S0737- 0806(16)00163-5/abstract 2016 article that looks at the different variants of the EAV circulating in horse populations around the world.


http://www.j-evs.com/article/S0737- 0806(11)00020-7/abstract 2011 articled that discussed a study that re-evaluated the safety aspects of the commercially available modified live vaccine against EAV in the stallion.

www.ivis.org/proceedings/aaaa/2012/Loomis.pdf-2012-09-19 2012 article by Paul Loomis of Select Breeders. He summarizes this paper with the following: “Breeders and professionals concerned with the responsible development of the equine AI industry should consider implementing a program of oversight to help minimize the spread of disease and provide some level of quality control for stallion semen production and distribution in the U.S.”


Vaccination:
