EHV-1 can cause a variety of diseases in horses, from simple runny nose and fevers, to abortion or even neurologic disease and death. A project with Drs. Brandon Lillie, Pathobiology, and Luis Arroyo, Clinical Studies, will assess the prevalence of EHV-1 in Ontario and study the abortive effect of the virus.
The goal is to better understand how this virus exists in the horse population, what factors contribute to the virus causing disease, and ultimately attempt to determine novel approaches to maximize the efficacy of current vaccines and minimize the impact of EHV on the health of horses.
