  • Orf virus circulation in cattle in Turkey. [Journal Article]
    Comp Immunol Microbiol Infect Dis 2019; 65:1-6Şevik M
  • Orf virus (ORFV) causes contagious skin disease that mainly affects sheep and goats with zoonotic potential. However, there is not enough information about the association between ORFV and occurrence of skin disease in cattle. The present study describes outbreaks of ORFV infection in cattle in different provinces that are located in the Aegean, Central Anatolian and Mediterranean regions of Turk…
