bovines, foot-and-mouth disease (FMD, picornavirus, vaccination



 Foot-and-Mouth disease (FMD) is a viral disease caused by a prototype member of the Picornaviridae family. Although the disease has been described for more than 5 centuries, it remains one of the major health and economic barriers for cattle and swine import and export. Since 75% of the national cattle herd is FMD free, it is necessary to provide an updated literature review of the disease. Updated information of FMD will assist in the decision making of the need and use of vaccines, especially at the time when the country is declared free of FMD.
