New approaches for controlling PMWS and PCV2 associated diseases

Posted in: Economics, Pork Insight Articles, Production by PSCI on July 13, 2017


PCV2 is a global phenomenon, this presentation outlines several methods of preventing infection and suppressing the disease in pigs. Controlling immune stimulation and vaccination with a subclinical infection may enhance systemic dissemination while at the point of this presentation (2006) there were 4 vaccines under development and 2 registered for emergency use. There are currently (2006) no drugs specifically effective for treating the disease and so as usual with these types of cofactor diseases good management practices and limiting the environmental strain on pigs is the most effective form of prevention.
