Myxomatosis is a viral disease caused by a Poxvirus. It affects domestic rabbits causing persistent problems in industrial rabbitries. The only way to control myxomatosis is through vaccination and bio-security measures. At present there are two types of vaccines to prevent myxomatosis: heterologous and homologous. In the first case, the antigen is the live Shope fibroma virus while in the second case it is the live attenuated myxoma virus, both belonging to the Poxvirus family, Leporipoxvirus genus.
