The study was conducted to find out a way that might lead to potentiation of both cryostability and thermostability criteria of the live attenuated PPR virus Nigerian75/1 vaccine. This vaccine as with other Morbillivirus vaccines is thermolabile; i.e. thermal degradation occurs on exposure to inconvenient temperatures, even though if kept in a lyophilized state. This draw-back poses difficulties when launching vaccination campaigns especially in arid and semi –arid areas if a cold chain necessity is logistically unavailable to maintain good vaccine titers until delivery of the product to targeted animals. A recently advocated stabilizer formulation (Tris/ Trehalose) was tested for its cryoprotectant as well as thermo- resistant potentialities on being thoroughly incorporated into the PPRV-suspension just prior to lyophilization process and under varying storage temperature conditions, in comparison to the conventionally used Weybridge medium (WBM). It was found that the Tris/ Tre formula was far superior to the WBM one since the loss in virus titre was 0.1 and 0.4 log10 TCID50 /ml for Tris/ Tre and WBM stabilized vaccines respectively during the lyophilization process. The results preferred the choice of Tris/Tre Stabilizer formula on viability of 75/1 PPR virus during lyophilization process and preservation at -20â—¦C and -70â—¦C. Tris/Tre stabilized vaccines stored at 4â—¦C and -4â—¦C for 9,12 months respectively maintained sufficient viable PPR virus to protect goats. Even at a drastic high temperature (37°C and 45°C), the Tris/Tre formula could conserve satisfactory vaccine titre after 5 and 2 days of exposure, corresponding to only 1.5 and 1 day with the WBM formula, respectively. In conclusion, Tris/Tre stabilized PPRV- attenuated vaccine, enhanced to a reasonable extent both cryoprotectant and thermotolerence potentialities as compared to the WBM one and it is superior to WBM in inducing protective immune response after vaccination in tested goats.
