Southeast Asian Foot-and-Mouth Disease Viruses in Eastern Asia.
Summary of "Southeast Asian Foot-and-Mouth Disease Viruses in Eastern Asia."
Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreaks recently affected 2 countries (Japan and South Korea) in eastern Asia that were free of FMD without vaccination. Analysis of viral protein 1 nucleotide sequences indicated that FMD serotype A and O viruses that caused these outbreaks originated in mainland Southeast Asia to which these viruses are endemic.
