Artemis One Health
Livestock & Wildlife
Viruses also pose a threat to livestock and wildlife, thereby affecting the economy and endangering public health. Understanding viral diseases in domestic animals and wildlife is essential to the One Health concept and at the basis of control of epizootics and protection of humans. Many viruses are generalists in that several viruses that infect humans also infect domestic animals and wildlife. Most of the pathogens that have caused recent epidemics in wildlife infect a wide animal species. Importantly, introduction of new viruses in a population of endangered animals may lead to their extinction.

PROJECT INTRODUCTION ELEPHANT HERPESVIRUS
The following viruses are being studied currently, embedded in several projects.
The high mortality rates associated with elephant herpesvirus (EEHV) infections in captive and wild elephants and the threat they pose to the continuation and success of captive breeding programs for the highly endangered Asian elephant in both North America and Europe, makes the development of a safe and effective vaccine a high priority. .. > LEARN MORE
