Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Eric D. Anderson
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: IHN disease in farmed salmon and trout exerts a negative impact on the productivity and profitability of the aquaculture industry. The purpose of this project is to produce an efficacious, safe and cost-effective killed IHN virus vaccine. The vaccine would decrease or… More

Recombinant ISA Virus Vaccine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Sharon Clouthier
Award Amount: $75,000.00
Abstract:
NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: ISA virus, an unclassified Orthomyxoviridae is an emerging pathogen associated with disease in farmed Atlantic salmon. Losses incurred in Maine due to ISA alone in 2002 are estimated to be over $12 million (US). In response to the threat, salmon producers have stated that an… More

Recombinant ISA Virus Vaccine

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Sharon Clouthier
Award Amount: $296,000.00
Abstract:
Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) virus is an emerging pathogen of farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
