    ..Intensifying surveillance where young calves are abundant may also prove efficient for early detection of infected herds and for mitigating outbreaks of FMDV. ..
  2. Ben Gera J, Klement E, Khinich E, Stram Y, Shpigel N. Comparison of the efficacy of Neethling lumpy skin disease virus and x10RM65 sheep-pox live attenuated vaccines for the prevention of lumpy skin disease - The results of a randomized controlled field study. Vaccine. 2015;33:4837-42 pubmed publisher
    ..No transmission of the Neethling strain to non-Neethling vaccinated cows was observed in this study. ..

    ..We therefore conclude that this test can serve as a valuable tool for detection of previous FMDV infection in cattle in endemic countries, where routine vaccinations are implied, even several years after exposure. ..
  4. Tirosh Levy S, Steinman A, Carmeli Y, Klement E, Navon Venezia S. Prevalence and risk factors for colonization with methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus and other Staphylococci species in hospitalized and farm horses in Israel. Prev Vet Med. 2015;122:135-44 pubmed publisher
  5. Walker P, Klement E. Epidemiology and control of bovine ephemeral fever. Vet Res. 2015;46:124 pubmed publisher
    ..We also discuss the effectiveness of vaccination and other strategies to prevent or control infection. ..
  6. Elnekave E, Van Maanen K, Shilo H, Gelman B, Storm N, Berdenstain S, et al. Prevalence and risk factors for foot and mouth disease infection in small ruminants in Israel. Prev Vet Med. 2016;125:82-8 pubmed publisher
    ..This conclusion may be applicable for other endemic countries in which, similar to Israel, all livestock are vaccinated against FMD. ..
  7. Elnekave E, Van Maanen K, Shilo H, Gelman B, Storm N, Abed El Khaliq M, et al. Prevalence and risk factors for foot and mouth disease infection in cattle in Israel. Prev Vet Med. 2016;130:51-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Early detection of FMD outbreaks among grazing beef herds as well as the implementation of control measures among these farms are therefore the methods of choice to prevent future outbreaks in Israel. ..
  8. Elnekave E, Dekker A, Eblé P, van Hemert Kluitenberg F, Gelman B, Storm N, et al. The long term effect of age and maternally derived antibodies against foot and mouth disease on the serological response following vaccination in young dairy calves. Vaccine. 2016;34:4927-4934 pubmed publisher
    ..Adoption of such a vaccination regimen in Israel as well as other FMD endemic countries may allow better protection against FMD in dairy calves and reduction in FMD incidence. ..
  9. Elnekave E, Dekker A, Eblé P, van Hemert Kluitenberg F, Gelman B, Storm N, et al. The serological response against foot and mouth disease virus elicited by repeated vaccination of dairy cattle. Vaccine. 2016;34:4920-4926 pubmed publisher
    ..We conclude that starting from the 5th vaccination, the NAT increase following vaccination is mild and NAT are persistent, suggesting reduction of the frequency of routine vaccination after multiple vaccinations is possible. ..
