Characteristics of GII.4 Norovirus versus other Genotypes in Sporadic Pediatric Infections in Davidson County, Tennessee, USA.

Zaid Haddadin, Einas Batarseh, Lubna Hamdan, Laura S Stewart, Bhinnata Piya, Herdi Rahman, Andrew J Spieker, James Chappell, Mary E Wikswo, John R Dunn, Daniel C Payne, Jan Vinjé, Aron J Hall, Natasha Halasa,

BACKGROUND:Norovirus is a leading cause of epidemic acute gastroenteritis (AGE) in the U.S, with most outbreaks occurring during winter. The majority of outbreaks are caused by GII.4 noroviruses, but data supporting whether this is true for sporadic medically-attended AGE are limited. Therefore, we sought to compare the clinical characteristics and ... Read more >>

Pathogen transmission from vaccinated hosts can cause dose-dependent reduction in virulence.

Richard I Bailey, Hans H Cheng, Margo Chase-Topping, Jody K Mays, Osvaldo Anacleto, John R Dunn, Andrea Doeschl-Wilson,

Many livestock and human vaccines are leaky because they block symptoms but do not prevent infection or onward transmission. This leakiness is concerning because it increases vaccination coverage required to prevent disease spread and can promote evolution of increased pathogen virulence. Despite leakiness, vaccination may reduce pathogen load, affecting disease ... Read more >>

Vaccinal efficacy of molecularly cloned Gallid alphaherpesvirus 3 strain 301B/1 against very virulent Marek's disease virus challenge.

Taejoong Kim, Stephen J Spatz, John R Dunn,

Marek's disease virus (MDV), a causative agent of Marek's disease, has evolved its virulence partly because the current control strategies fail to provide sterilizing immunity. Gallid alphaherpesvirus 3 (GaHV-3) and turkey herpesvirus have been developed as bivalent vaccines to improve upon the level of protection elicited by single formulations. Since ... Read more >>

Towards a mechanistic understanding of the synergistic response induced by bivalent Marek's disease vaccines to prevent lymphomas.

Supawadee Umthong, John R Dunn, Hans H Cheng,

BACKGROUND:Marek's disease (MD) is a lymphoproliferative disease of chickens caused by Marek's disease virus (MDV), an oncogenic α-herpesvirus. Since 1970, MD has been controlled by widespread vaccination; however, more effective MD vaccines are needed to counter more virulent MDV strains. The bivalent vaccine combination of SB-1 and herpesvirus of turkey ... Read more >>

Identification of Marek's disease virus genes associated with virulence of US strains.

John R Dunn, Alexis Black Pyrkosz, Alec Steep, Hans H Cheng,

Marek's disease virus (MDV) is the most well-cited example of vaccine-driven virulence evolution. MDV induces a lymphoproliferative disease in chickens, which is currently controlled by widespread vaccination of flocks. Unfortunately, Marek's disease (MD) vaccines, while effective in preventing tumours, do not prevent viral replication and mutation, which has been hypothesized ... Read more >>

Attenuation of Marek's disease virus by codon pair deoptimization of a core gene.

Steven J Conrad, Robert F Silva, Cari J Hearn, Megan Climans, John R Dunn,

Marek's disease virus (MDV) is an oncogenic alphaherpesvirus of Gallus gallus, the domesticated chicken. Control strategies rely upon vaccination with live attenuated viruses of antigenically similar avian herpesviruses or attenuated strains of MDV. Recent studies in other viruses have shown that recoding certain viral genes to employ synonymous but rarely-used ... Read more >>
