Aeromonas salmonicida is the causative agent of bacterial septicemia in salmon.
Important virulence factors identified. The protein VapA has several iron-regulated outer membrane proteins (IROMPs), the serine protease AspA and lipase CGAT.
The potential of these pathogenic and virulence factors as vaccine candidates has been investigated in challenge trials
Avian coccidiosis is an intestinal tract infection caused by protozoan parasite of the genus Eimeria which is an economically important disease affecting poultry globally.
Coccidiosis is one of the major devastating protozoan diseases of chicken with severe weight loss, reduction in feed conversion and increase in mortality. The disease results in severe economic loss for the poultry industry worldwide.
Although preventive medications and anti-coccidial drugs are available to control coccidiosis in chickens, development of drug resistant organism and drug residues in meat and egg are the major limitations of the current control method.
Development of cost-effective recombinant subunit vaccine is our focus to help reduce the loss in poultry industry.
