A point to em­pha­size

EQUUS - - Eq Letters -

Re­cently, EQUUS pub­lished a timely and fact-filled ar­ti­cle re­gard­ing equine in­fluenza virus (“The Fight Against Equine In­fluenza,” EQUUS 465).

We would like to make a point of clar­i­fi­ca­tion re­gard­ing one of the quotes con­tained in the ar­ti­cle that may have led one to con­clude that mod­i­fied live in­fluenza vac­cines are not safe for use in horses. Mod­i­fied live in­fluenza vac­cines in the mar­ket­place to­day are safe for use in the horse for ex­port as well as do­mes­tic use.
