Upcoming Meeting: International Workshop on Alternative Methods for Leptospira Vaccine Potency Testing

A deadly bacterial disease, an estimated 500,000 human cases of leptospirosis occur worldwide each year with a fatality rate of up to 25% in some regions. Leptospira vaccines for cattle, swine and dogs protect them from this disease and reduce the risk of animal-to-human transmission. From September 19-21, 2012, members of the Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM) will host the “International Workshop on Alternative Methods for Leptospira Vaccine Potency Testing: State of the Science and the Way Forward” in Ames, Iowa. The workshop will bring together international scientific experts from government, industry, and academia to review recent advances in science and technology, in addition to available methods and approaches for Leptospira vaccine potency testing.
