Seven naive Welsh mountain ponies were vaccinated twice with the commercially accessible vaccine Duvaxyn IE-T Plus and tentatively contaminated with A/eq2/Sydney/2888-8/07.

Five ponies continued to remain unprotected as controls.

The ponies came in contact with the virus in a hazardous pathogens containment place two weeks after the second inoculation.

Medical symptoms and virus discarding were observed for 14 days after contagion.

The researchers said that all control ponies contracted medical symptoms of sickness, with coughing being principally notable when compared with immunized ponies.
