Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0209750A2] This invention relates to mutant Equine herpesvirus type-1 (EHV-1) isolates, and in particular, EHV-1 isolates carrying mutations in the immediate-early (IE) gene of the viral genome. A panel of EHV-1 mutant isolates have been described. Preffered EHV-1 isolates are those which are replication-competent and nonpathogenic. The mutant EHV-1 isolates of the present invention are useful in formulating vaccine compositions for preventing and treating EHV-1 infections in horses. The present invention further provides methods of determining the pathogenicity of an EHV-1 virus present in a horse subject which has been previously immunized with a non-pathogenic EHV-1 isolate of the present invention.
