App-V

(Microsoft APPlication-Virtualization) Application streaming software from Microsoft that delivers applications to Windows desktops without installing them. Formerly SoftGrid from Softricity, which Microsoft acquired in 2006, App-V can be used stand-alone or with Windows Server Remote Desktop Services (RDS), but unlike the RDS modes, App-V applications are not installed in the server. They are installed once on a reference computer and "published" to the client as a package.

Combines All Necessary Components
An App-V package can include auxiliary software, such as a Java runtime or database engine, which may be required to run the application. Along with the greater control achieved by managing a single instance of an application delivered to multiple users, combining all required components into a single package makes deployment more manageable. See Remote Desktop Services and application streaming.

The APPV project, started in 2017 and funded by a PhD grant from Moredun Scientific Ltd, aims to characterise the virus's relationship with CT type A-II by investigating the development of disease and how the virus interacts with the host.
Due to a lack of commercially available diagnostic tests, the project has initially concentrated on establishing and validating cutting-edge techniques for the identification of APPV, such as qRT-PCR which detects and quantifies the amount of viral RNA in a sample.
This test has been used to study individual field cases of APPV associated CT type A-II on UK farms with the aim of establishing active surveillance of the virus in UK herds and improve ways to manage the disease on-farm.
Holly Hill, the PhD student working on the project, said: "This is an exciting opportunity to highlight a problem faced by the UK pig industry and appreciate how new viruses like APPV cause disease and impact on pig production.
We generated 20 different APPV NS3 sequences from apparently healthy pigs of all countries (sequences deposited into GenBank under accession nos.
In addition to the NS3 fragments, we determined APPV complete coding sequences (CDS) from 1 sample from a healthy pig from China (deposited into GenBank under accession no.
We applied an indirect APPV [E.sup.rns] antibody ELISA, as described (9), and classified the serologic status into low (S/p[less than or equal to]0.5), intermediate (0.5<S/p<1.0), or highly (S/ p[greater than or equal to]1.0) reactive.
Our findings indicate that the recently discovered APPV is abundant on several continents.
Presence of atypical porcine pestivirus (APPV) genomes in newborn piglets correlates with congenital tremor.
Recently, a novel group of porcine pestiviruses, termed atypical porcine pestiviruses (APPVs), was discovered.
