Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a highly contagious viral disease that mainly affects sheep and goats. Heavy losses can be seen, especially in goats, with morbidity and mortality rates sometimes approaching 80-100%. At one time, peste des petits ruminants was thought to be restricted to the Middle East and limited areas of Africa and Asia. Recently, its range has expanded in both Africa and Asia including China, Vietnam and Nepal. PPRV is a member of the genus Morbillivirus in the family Paramyxoviridae. Four genetic lineages (lineages 1-4) and a number of viral strains have been identified. Lineage 4 viruses have become especially prevalent in recent years.
