Equine Herpesvirus Information Available Free

Due to the recent outbreak of neurologic equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1), TheHorse.com is making available a series of articles on equine herpesvirus as PDF downloads, sponsored by Pfizer as a Special On-line Report.

Article topics are: “Herpes by the Numbers” (which explains the most common types of herpesviruses that affect horses), “Neurologic Herpesvirus”, “Herpesvirus Vaccination”, “EHV Latency” (horses can carry the virus and appear normal, then when stressed the virus can become active again and be shed to other horses), and “Herpesvirus Management Basics.” There is also a file that contains all five articles as one document.

These articles are available to download or print for individuals or groups for educational purposes only (http://www.thehorse.com/ViewArticle.aspx?ID=7000).

To go directly to the five-article PDF, use this link http://www.thehorse.com/pdf/ehv/specialreport.pdf.

The PDFs may not be reproduced on another Web site, but a link to the PDFs can be placed on a Web site or in a newsletter or publication.

Any company or individual may use a free RSS news feed from TheHorse.com; visit http://www.thehorse.com/RSS.

George Allen, PhD, head of the OIE Herpesvirus Reference Laboratory at the University of Kentucky’s Gluck Equine Research Center, acted as a scientific resource for these articles.

Questions can be directed to Kimberly S. Brown, Editor, at KBrown@TheHorse.com.
