Investigating primary and secondary B cell responses in cattle after immunisation with existing and novel vaccines

Abstract:

Antibodies play a pivotal role in protecting against viral infection, maintenance of this protective response is provided by plasma and memory B cells. Foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV) is a highly contagious pathogen and studies in cattle have shown that protection from the virus is antibody-mediated. However, FMDV vaccines are unable to achieve long durations of immunity. Therefore, understanding the FMDV-specific B cell responses in cattle is essential to inform future vaccine design....
