New doctoral thesis on PRRS

Last March 2012, 28th, Mariona Gimeno (CReSA-UAB PhD student) defended her doctoral thesis entitled “Immunological and pathogenic characterization of different genotype-I porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (vPPRS) isolates” directed by Dr Enric Mateu.

Different genotype- I PRRSv isolates were exhaustively characterizated in this thesis. For the first time, PRRSv isolates have been characterized at three levels: capability to alter the immune response, complete genoma sequencing and characterization of an animal model.
