Pork Checkoff

Pork Checkoff Research

Research is at the heart of the National Pork Board’s mission and is funded by your Pork Checkoff dollars. Research is administered in all areas of pork production, processing, and human nutrition to develop a higher quality and more profitable product in the competitive meat protein market.

Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Development of Porcine Cytomegalovirus as a Conventional and Disseminating Vaccine for Classical Swine Fever – A Pilot Study
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Negative cohort study plan for the estimation of diagnostic specificity of Two PCR assays for the detection of Classical Swine Fever, African Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth disease viruses in oral fluid samples
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Negative cohort study plan for the estimation of diagnostic specificity of Two PCR assays for the detection of Classical Swine Fever, African Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth disease viruses in oral fluid samples
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Negative cohort study plan for the estimation of diagnostic specificity of Two PCR assays for the detection of Classical Swine Fever, African Swine Fever and Foot and Mouth disease viruses in oral fluid samples
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Development and validaton of Singleplex and Multiplex Luminex Assays for Detection of antibodies to foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), swine vesicular disease (SVD), classical swine fever (CSF) and African swine fever (ASF) viruses in porcine oral fluids
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Use of oral fluid (OF) samples to monitor virus shedding and antibody responses in pigs experimentally infected with high consequence swine viruses (foot and mouth disease, African swine fever, swine vesicular disease and classical swine fever viruses)
Swine Health - General Disease
Evaluation of envelope proteins for rapid induction of protective immune response against classical swine fever
The main objective of this research project was to determine if native and/or modified forms of Classical Swine Fever Virus (CSFV) proteins present in the surface of the virion were able to...
Swine Health - General Disease
Development of classical swine fever virus diagnostic assays for porcine oral fluid samples
With classical swine fever virus (CSFV) commonplace in the world and barely outside the borders of North America, it is reasonable to expect that CSFV will eventually be reintroduced into North...
Swine Health - General Disease
Identification of host factors interacting with classical swine fever virus proteins: development of novel anti-viral therapeutics
During the infection of a cell, a virus gets in contact with many host proteins. These interactions between virus and host factors enable the virus the successful production of progeny and progress...
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Development and Evaluation of a Standardized Protocol for Utilization of Swine Oral fluids for PCR detection of High Consequence Pathogens: FMD, CSF, and ASF
The primary objective of this project was to develop a standard operating procedure for the use of swine oral fluids (SOF) as a diagnostic specimen for detection of endemic viral diseases such as...
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Working toward a CSFV oral fluid antibody ELISA: defining oral fluid antibody (IgA, IgG) kinetics against envelope glycoproteins (E2, Erns)
Classical swine fever (CSF) is a highly contagious disease causing significant economic losses to swine producers in many part of the world. Although the US has been recognized as a CSFV-free area,...
Swine Health-Foreign Animal Disease
Animal welfare implications resulting from movement restriction for foreign animal disease outbreak management in the pork industry
Trends in the U.S. swine industry show that over the years, there has been an increase in improved producer efficacy and the appearance of fewer but larger pig farms. These changes are reflected...
