Foot and mouth disease vaccine response in cattle: A review
Manjeet, Vikram Jakhar, BL Pander, Ankit Magotra and Aryan
India is the largest milk producing country of the world. To sustain number one position, reduction in production due to diseases like Foot and mouth disease is essential. The disease has debilitating effects, including weight loss, decrease in milk production and loss of draught power resulting in loss of productivity for a considerable time. Immunization of cattle has been considered as a standard management practice for disease prevention. However, not all animals respond equally to vaccinations and there might be various genetic and non-genetic factors responsible for this variation viz., cohort, season, vaccination number and status of the animal etc. This review in short elucidates the effects of these factors on FMD viral vaccine-elicited immune response in cattle. The variation in vaccine response needs to be exploited on large-scale animal data for better immunization and protection against highly contagious viral vesicular disease of cloven-hoofed animals.
