VETS from Scotland's Rural College are today appealing to sheep farmers across Wales and the UK to be alert to an increasing threat from an incurable viral disease of sheep, called Maedi Visna
Slow virus replication: the role of macrophages in the persistence and expression of visna
viruses of sheep and goats.

It is always preferable to save as much of the meniscus as possible by performing a partial meniscectomy, where only loose fragments are excised (Marx 2000, Pasa & Visna
When they applied the LearnCoil program to databases of sequences, the researchers found evidence of coiled coils in fusion proteins associated with a wide variety of disease-causing viruses, including the influenza virus, Moloney murine leukemia virus, HIV, simian immunodeficiency virus, and visna
Like HIV in humans, animal viruses such as feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) in cats, visna
virus in sheep and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in monkeys primarily infect cells of the immune system such as T cells and macrophages.
Ovine progressive pneumonia of sheep is caused by a retrovirus--the visna
Vets from Scotland's Rural College claim that many farmers are failing to appreciate the danger that Maedi Visna
(MV) poses to all sheep breeds.
Specialists say a high level of Maedi Visna
(MV) infection has been found in some ocks and there is evidence of infection increasing throughout the sheep population, including Wales.
