use poxvirus in a sentence.
Over roughly the past decade, the CDC has been called to retrieve the remains of a man covered with smallpox lesions whose coffin was unearthed during construction near Louisville, Ky., as well as suspicious-looking scabs in a library book in New Mexico and a museum in Arkansas, says Inger Damon, chief of the CDC's poxvirus and rabies branch.
The smallpox vaccine is made using a poxvirus that infects cows (cowpox or vaccinia).
So far the most promising of these vaccines has been one using another poxvirus -- canarypox -- to deliver HIV recombinants (See Table 2).
Other vaccine trials using the poxvirus vaccinia as a vector to deliver live recombinant HIV (based on glycoprotein 160) have been found safe, and have stimulated partial immunity to HIV.
CV-301 originates from the same poxvirus technology platform as PROSTVAC
