In this study, co-infection of white spot syndrome virus and AHPND-Vibrio parahaemolyticus was studied in juvenile vannamei shrimp under laboratory conditions.
Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease
Behind the successful control of Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS), or Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND), in a Latin American shrimp nursery.
Study demonstrates that isolated phages tested are effective in controlling AHPND infection in farmed penaeid shrimp and inhibiting bacterial growth.
Laboratory challenges and a case-control study were used to determine the effects of EHP infection on two Vibrio diseases: acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND) and septic hepatopancreatic necrosis (SHPN).
