Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Bovine viral diarrhea viruses (BVDVs) are widely distributed viruses among cattle populations, that cause significant economic losses in the livestock industry, considered one of the most significant infectious diseases in the livestock industry worldwide due to their high prevalence, persistence and clinical consequences. BVDVs are members of the genus Pestivirus, belonging to the family Flaviviridae. Two BVDV genotypes are recognised based on the nucleotide sequence of the 5’untranslated (UTR) region: BVDV-1 and BVDV-2. BVDV can lead to various clinical manifestations, including respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases and reproductive disorders.

This Special Issue will focus on the latest research developments in the pathology, epidemiology, diagnostic methods and control measures of BVDV. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the epidemiology, development and evaluation of diagnostic assays; virus discovery; transmission pathways; virulence; and clinical aspects. We welcome original research articles, review articles and short communications that fall within this scope. Through the publication of this Special Issue, we hope to provide scientific evidence and effective measures for the livestock industry to reduce the impact of the virus on cattle health and sustainable development.

Prof. Dr. Shafiqul Chowdhury
