Peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV), a member of the Morbillivims genus in the family Paramyxoviridae, is the cause of a serious and emerging plague of small ruminants, mostly affecting sheep and goats. It is endemic in many developing countries in Africa and southern Asia and is highly contagious, with the mortality rate approaching 90% in some outbreaks. Development of reverse genetics systems for other morbilliviruses such as rinderpest and measles has allowed more focused research into replication, pathogenicity and marker vaccines.
