Published in Frontiers in Veterinary Science, it is the 1st report of a promising inoculation against the virus. The study also provides evidence that this immunity can be passed on via contact with immunised individuals, but further studies are needed to examine exactly how this occurs, as well as the safety of repeated administration.

Dr Jose Angel Barasona, a researcher at the Spanish Visavet Health Surveillance Centre, part of the Complutense University of Madrid, Spain. Dr Barasona is also co-author of the research. He said in a press release shared by the scientific publication: “ASF is of enormous concern to the pig industry. Our study demonstrates the effectiveness of the first oral vaccine against this disease on Eurasian wild boar. Overall, we demonstrate that oral immunisation of wild boar conferred 92% protection against a highly pathogenic strain of African Swine Fever, which is currently circulating in Asia and Europe.”
