    Japanese Oral KHV Vaccine developed

    Vol.12 No.495 Wednesday, May 11, 2005
    Oral anti-Koi herpes virus vaccine developed in Mie
    A Mie University research team led by Tetsuro Yoshimura, a professor at the university's Engineering Department, and Teruo Miyazaki, a professor at the Department of Life Science, has developed for the first time in the world an oral anti-Koi (carp) herpes virus (KHV) vaccine. The team of the state-run university, based in Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, gave Koi feed incorporating a KHV Liposome vaccine mixed by an artificially made Liposome after inactivating KHV's infection power. The oral administration of vaccine has boosted Koi's ability to create antibodies five to 25 times from usual levels. Compared with conventional methods of injecting vaccines, the newly developed method requires less time and work, and does not hurt Koi.
    The outbreak of the KHV disease was first reported in Israel in 1998. The disease has since spread widely in the world. In Japan, it broke out in Kasumigaura, Ibaraki Prefecture, in November 2003 and prevailed nationwide, resulting in massive deaths of carp in the absence of effective ways of treatment.
    The research team plans to mass-produce the oral vaccine and conduct a large-scale experiment to obtain authorization from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and other related ministries. It will also make preparations to set up a bio-venture.

    Very interesting Werner!. Does this herald a new brand or Hikari feed? "I'll have a bag of Hikari KHV-b-gone please"

    Keeping my fingers crossed. Sounds like good news!

    This is the vaccine that was discussed at the Shinkokai seminar held on KHV that the Isreali's spoke at last year or more now. But that is amazingly fast in the way of results, as it was only a 'theory' at the time of the meeting? Interesting!

    Folks,

    Dr. Miyazaki discussed the oral vaccine during the koi health symposium:

    He was stating it would be two years until production at the time.

    Brian I don't understand

    Brian what am I missing here. You posted a link to a Dec 2003 Thread:"Professor Miyazaki will be explaining the findings of the vaccine that's been developed for Aeromonas hydrophila."

    I posted an article about a KHV Vaccine dated May 11, 2005. Sorry I may be dense, but I don't see the correlation except for the Professors name.
