Developing a Vaccine for Pigeon Fever

Pigeon fever, also known as dryland distemper, is an emerging and quickly spreading bacterial infectious disease in horses caused  by the bacterium Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis. No vaccine is currently available for horses. Researchers will work toward developing a vaccine to prevent this bacterial disease in horses.
