    About This Project

    Elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus hemorrhagic disease (EEHV-HD) is the leading cause of death of young Asian elephants in the west, and suspected to occur in Myanmar. To validate if alternative methods can be used for the detection of EEHV, we will collect noninvasive samples from 2 captive and one wild elephant herd and determine the presence of EEHV using qPCR. To advance the study of EEHV epidemiology in Myanmar, we will conduct training for 25 Myanmar veterinarians.
