Research Topic: “Immunogeno Protection Mechanism of Rift Valley Fever In DRC”
The general objective of this project is to contribute to the understanding of the host immune response mechanism including protective effect upon immunization against RVF virus infection. The following studied will be conducted:
Evaluate the immunological protection against RVF in vaccinated and non vaccinated cattle herds in the North of Katanga.
Assess the immunegeno protective effect of Clone 13 and Inactivated Rift Valley Fever Vaccine in cattle.
Compare the cellular response including macrophage activities between vaccinated and experimentally infected animals.
