The world may be one step closer to a workable vaccine for
African swine fever
(ASF), but one expert warns that a local debut is a long way off — if the vaccine makes it to Canada at all.
According to a research article, recently published in a Chinese science journal, researchers out of the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute have developed a vaccine that they say is safe and effective in lab conditions.
The paper describes the vaccine as a live attenuated vaccine based on one of the first ASF strains to be found in China.
