Rift Valley Fever

Rift Valley Fever (RVF) is an acute, fever-causing viral disease most commonly observed in domesticated animals (such as cattle, sheep and goats), with the ability to infect and cause illness in humans. The disease is cause by the RVFvirus and is generally found in regions of eastern and southern Africa where sheep and cattle are raised, but the virus exists in most of sub-Saharan Africa, including west Africa and Madagascar.

Medgene Labs currently has exclusively licensed vaccine technologies for Rift Valley Fever from the Department of Homeland Security's Center of Excellence for Emerging and Zoonotic Animal Diseases.
