This article reviews some of the recent patents on DNA vaccines against fish viruses, in particular against the novirhabdovirus infectious hematopoitic necrosis virus (IHNV). Although very effective in protecting fish against IHNV, only one DNA vaccine has been approved to date for use in Canada. In Europe and in US, its commercialization is restricted due to safety concerns.

Keywords: Apoptosis, DNA vaccines, fish promoters, infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus, salmonid fish, suicidal DNA vaccines, DNA-plasmid solution, aquaculture, coding sequences, fusion protein, shellfish pathogens, programmed cell death
