|Title:||Production of Nipah Virus VLPs||Authors:||Ng, Say Yong||Keywords:||DRNTU::Science::Biological sciences::Microbiology::Virology||Issue Date:||2016||Abstract:||The Nipah Virus (NiV) is an emerging infectious virus that has caused outbreaks since 1998. It is a dangerous zoonotic virus with a 40-75% case fatality rate and the route of transmission is skewed towards human-to-human transmission in recent year. With no treatment available and only one vaccine that is licensed for horses, this necessitates the new treatments and vaccine urgently. Classified as a BSL4 virus, the research that can be done on it will hampers the development of new therapeutics. In this study we managed to culture and isolation Nipah virus-like particles in a BSL2 laboratory. This Nipah VLPs has the viral glycoproteins as an authentic virus but without any genetic material and is a potential vaccine.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/68813||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
