Update 13th June The following paper, available 'Information Menu - Rota Update' was presented by Dr Colin Walker at the International Veterinary Conference on Pigeon Pathology in Krakow , Poland on the 7th -8th June 2018. The paper essentially covers what is known about Rota virus and the development of the vaccine up to the completion of the vaccine trials in July 2017, at which stage the manufacture and release of the vaccine became the national Boards responsibility .It is worth noting that further papers were presented on Rota virus in Europe, in particular by Dr Dennis Rubbenstroth of Freiberg University in Germany. He has profiled all known Rota virus isolates in Europe as well as examining historical samples. He has not found the Australian Type A Rota virus G18P but has however found another G18P Rota virus that has 2 of the 8 surface proteins the same . It causes a milder disease than "our" Rota with transient diarrhoea and low mortality but does cause a necrotising hepatitis. To date, severe Rota virus disease remains an Australian problem.
