This Peste des petits ruminants virus, PPRV Real-time PCR Kit is based on real-time PCR to detect RPRV virus in nose and mouth swabs, tissues, plasma and serum of sheep/goat.
Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is caused by a morbillivirus closely related to the rinderpest virus and affects goats, sheep, and some wild relatives of domesticated small ruminants, as well as camels. It is characterized by severe morbidity and mortality rates and has a high economic impact in areas of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, where small ruminants contribute to guaranteeing livelihoods. PPR is an OIE-listed disease and must be reported to the OIE, according to the Terrestrial Animal Health Code. Countries have the possibility to apply for the official recognition by the OIE of their freedom from PPR for their whole country or for a zone, and for the endorsement of their national official control program for PPR. Together, OIE and the FAO developed the Global Control and Eradication Strategy of PPR and have set the goal of eradicating the disease by 2030. Efficient PPR vaccines are available and can induce life-long protective immunity in vaccinated animals.
