Immunological composition of measles virus utilizing recombinant poxvirus

Image Number 18 for United States Patent #5759841.

What is described is a recombinant poxvirus, such as vaccinia virus or canarypox virus, containing foreign DNA from Morbillivirus. In one embodiment, the foreign DNA is expressed in a host by the production of a measles virus glycoprotein. In another embodiment, the foreign DNA is expressed in a host by the production of at least two measles virus glycoproteins. What is also described is a vaccine containing the recombinant poxvirus for inducing an immunological response in a host animal inoculated with the vaccine. By the present invention, cross-protection of dogs against canine distemper is obtained by inoculating the dog with the recombinant poxvirus.
