Conference in VIII Congreso de Ciencias Veterinarias y Biomédicas: Facultad de Veterinaria

April 27th, 2009

The bluetongue virus (BTV) is a reemerging worldwide disease transmitted by insects of the
genus Culicoides that affects domestic and some wild ruminants. Currently, it is a disease of
great importance in Europe due to the economic losses it causes. Since 2002 in Spain, there
have been outbreaks of 4 different serotypes of BTV, each with a different behaviour in terms
of distribution, population and pathogenicity. Control in Spain has been possible through the
use of different prophylactic measures, but the main tool for the eradication is vaccination.
The aim of this work is to assess the impact of vaccination in Spain, through the study of the
vaccination influence over BTV serotypes’ evolution in Spain (2000-2008)
