New vaccine trial on salmon

Dr Øystein Evensen, professor at NMBU, is testing a new vaccine developed against the piscine myocarditis virus (PMCV) which is responsible of the cardiomyopathy syndrome (CMS), a loss-making disease in Norwegian salmon farming. Together with his group members Dr Evensen is therefore testing whether recombinant proteins from this virus and plasmids with genes from this virus can act as vaccines and provide protection for a better disease control.
