Molecular detection and characterization of Orf virus from goats in Egypt.

Open Vet J 2022 Mar-Apr;12(2):273-280

The Veterinary Clinic, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Zagazig University, El-Shohada, Moawwad, Qesm Awel AZ Zagazig, 44519, Egypt.

Background: Orf is a highly contagious viral skin disease in sheep and goats caused by Orf virus (ORFV) in the genus Parapoxvirus. Although sheep and goats are considered an essential food resource, particularly in Africa, ORFV infection represents an increasing challenge to animal productivity causing high economic losses.

Aim: This study aimed to detect and characterize the ORFV in suspected clinically diseased goats in two neighboring Egyptian governorates, Al-Sharkia and Ismailia, flocks during April 2020 and July 2021by using PCR and phylogenetic analysis of partial B2L sequence. Read More

Genetic analysis of two viroceptor genes of orf virus.

Arch Virol 2022 Jul 14;167(7):1577-1582. Epub 2022 May 14.

Division of Virology, ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute, Nainital District, Mukteswar, Uttarakhand, 263138, India.

In the present study, we analyzed the chemokine-binding protein (CBP) and the GM-CSF/IL-2 inhibition factor (GIF) of orf virus (ORFV) isolates of sheep and goat origin from different geographical regions of India. Both are immunomodulatory proteins known for their unique strategy of establishing short-term immunity and re-infection in their host. The GIF gene is highly conserved, whereas the CBP gene is highly variable. Read More

[Myositis as a post-acute sequela of COVID-19 disease? : Even in times of the pandemic, muscle biopsies can only be assessed in the context of accurate clinical information].

Pathologe 2022 Apr 4. Epub 2022 Apr 4.

Institut für Medizinische Genetik und Pathologie, Universitätsspital Basel, Schönbeinstrasse 40, 4031, Basel, Schweiz.

A case of a patient suffering from COVID-19 with suspected associated myositis is reported, in which the initially limited information about the history and disease course led to difficulties in establishing a reasonable diagnosis. Through inquiry, further data could be collected, so that the diagnosis of an infection-associated thrombotic microangiopathy in the context of a Morganella morganii myositis could be made. This patient study shows that even in times of the omnipresent pandemic and despite the context of a positive COVID-19 test result, differential diagnoses and the integrative clinicopathologic approach in interpreting muscle biopsy findings should not be neglected.

Department of Dermatology, University of Lübeck, Lübeck, Germany.

Importance: Ecthyma contagiosum, or orf, is a viral zoonotic infection caused by Poxviridae. Although human orf infection is considered to follow a self-limited course, various immunological reactions may be triggered, including immunobullous diseases. In the majority of the latter cases, the antigenic target remained enigmatic. Read More

The OH system: A panorama view of the PPV-host interaction.

Infect Genet Evol 2022 03 20;98:105220. Epub 2022 Jan 20.

College of Biological Science and Technology, Heilongjiang Bayi Agricultural University, Daqing 163319, PR China.

Poxviruses are a family of specialized cytoplasm-parasitic DNA viruses that replicate and assembly in virus factory. In Parapoxvirus (PPV) genus, with the orf virus (ORFV) as a representative species of this genus, their behaviors are significantly different from that of Orthopoxvirus, and the plots of viral practical solutions for evading host immunity are intricate and fascinating, particularly to anti-host and host's antiviral mechanisms. In order to protect the virus factory from immune elimination caused by infection, PPVs attempt to interfere with multiple stress levels of host, mainly by modulating innate immunity response (IIR) and adaptive immunity response (AIR).

Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale della Puglia e della Basilicata, Via Manfredonia 20, 71100 Foggia, Italy.

ORF virus (Poxviridae) is the causative agent of contagious ecthyma (soremouth), a disease primarily affecting sheep and goats worldwide, but also humans exposed to disease-ridden animals. Pathogens are shed with scabs, and infection mainly occurs by direct contact. Although the disease is relatively benign and self-limiting, the morbidity rate is high in livestock with subsequent significant financial and economic impact. Read More

Immunomodulatory Strategies for Parapoxvirus: Current Status and Future Approaches for the Development of Vaccines against Orf Virus Infection.

Vaccines (Basel) 2021 Nov 17;9(11). Epub 2021 Nov 17.

Department of Pathology and Microbiology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Serdang 43400, Selangor, Malaysia.

Orf virus (ORFV), the prototype species of the parapoxvirus genus, is the causative agent of contagious ecthyma, an extremely devastating skin disease of sheep, goats, and humans that causes enormous economic losses in livestock production. ORFV is known for its ability to repeatedly infect both previously infected and vaccinated sheep due to several immunomodulatory genes encoded by the virus that temporarily suppress host immunity. Therefore, the development of novel, safe and effective vaccines against ORFV infection is an important priority. Read More
