Zoonotic poxvirus infections include monkeypox, cowpox, buffalopox, feline cowpox, horsepox
, camelpox, and elephantpox.
We compared molecular sequence data from 3 genes and a variable region of the poxvirus genome (Table 1) among BRZ-VACV isolates, available vaccine strains related to those used during the eradication campaign in Brazil, and other VACVs isolated from domestic animals (including endemic buffalopox virus in India [15-17] and horsepox
virus [HSPV] from Asia ).
TNX-801 (live horsepox
virus vaccine for percutaneous (scarification) administration) is a novel, live virus vaccine grown in cell culture that is a potential smallpox-preventing vaccine currently in the pre-IND application stage of development.
