Similarly, whether cross protection exists between EV-A71 and other enteroviruses, such as CV-A6 and CV-A10, remains poorly understood to date, although limited studies have been more indicative of a lack of cross protection between EV-A71 and coxsackieviruses including CV-A6 (14,15).
"We have each customised our outfits with police armour and motor cross protection gear from eBay so, if we do come across any trouble we have the right body wear for the job.
There are several reports indicating that exposure to particular mild stress can also lead to enhanced protection against other lethal stress which was defined as cross protection (Soni et al., 2011).
Other research groups that have tested the efficacy of this rHVT-H5 vaccine against clade 2.3.4.4 H5Nx viruses from Europe and the United States obtained also excellent cross protection (i.e., 90% or above [18, 20]) with the exception of a study performed with two US isolates from 2014, in which only 60% protection was found [19].
To assess protection and cross protection, all animals were infected intranasally on day 42 with approximately [10.sup.6] [EID.sub.50] of SA/wt, NY/wt, or A/PR/8 7: 1 rg (NP-SA) (H1N1).

PRSV is controlled by different methods such as rouging of infected plants, use of barrier crops, cross protection, and transgenic resistance [20].
It is a potent immunostimulant, which makes for an HPV vaccine that generates a better Th1 response, provides more cross protection, and works better in hemodialysis patients.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that Rotarix is effective through cross protection against gastroenteritis caused by multiple rotavirus strains, so it is believed to be effective against many strains not included in the vaccine.
The isolation of CPV-2c allows the obtainment of viable infectious particle and so, the realization of tests which depend on the viable agent, such as neutralization and cross protection assays.
The animal model, built by researchers at Sydney University, showed cross protection and demonstrated that the vaccine is effective in animals.
