In a previous study (Ali et al., 2018a) four isolates of SpltNPV-Pak were found that were faster than SpltNPV-Pak-BNG, while having the same median lethal dose. It would be of interest now to determine whether these faster acting SpltNPVs further reduce the food uptake and hence further limit crop damage.
For perspective, the median lethal dose in humans of whole body ionizing radiation calculated from data based upon young adults inside reinforced concrete buildings that remained standing in Nagasaki after detonation of the atomic bomb in World War II is about 3 Gy.
