Inovio Pharmaceuticals Enters Collaboration With U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security to Assess Foot & Mouth Disease Synthetic Vaccines' Potential to Help Ensure Nation's Food Supply Safety
Date:9/27/2011

President and CEO, said: "FMD is the contagion posing the single greatest threat to the nation's food security. We are pleased to work with the Department of Homeland Security on this important security initiative and appreciate their support to advance novel, efficient and rapidly manufacturable methods to effectively and safely protect our national food supply."

About Foot-and-Mouth DiseaseFMD virus is one of the most infectious agents causing significant disease in farm animals including cattle, swine, sheep and goats, and is capable of rapidly infecting large numbers of animals. Seven main types of FMD virus are believed to exist today. Like other viruses, the FMD virus continually evolves and mutates. To date there has been no cross-protection between serotypes.

While death rates are generally low, the highly infectious nature of the virus has a profound negative economic impact, such as in the dairy industry where cattle may experience reduced milk production, poor growth and permanent hoof damage. An FMD outbreak typically leads to economic sanctions, including the loss of export markets, and can negatively impact tourism as restrictions are placed on the movement of people and animals. In a major FMD outbreak in the UK in 2001, more than 4 million animals were slaughtered, resulting in more than $10 billion (USD) in economic losses. In a recent FMD epidemic in South Korea, 3.3 million swine were culled in an attempt to keep the disease from spreading.
