Assessing Within-herd PRRS Variability and Its Impact on Production Parameters
The objective of this study was to describe porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) variability within farms using farms of different demographic types (breeding and growing pig...
Evaluation of Air Filters as a Novel Surveillance Method to Assess Spread of Airborne PRRS Viruses
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and influenza A virus (IAV) are two major respiratory pathogens of pigs that can be transmitted through the air. In this study, we...
Mitigation of PRRS Transmission with UV Light Treatment of Barn Inlet Air: Proof-of-Concept
‘Drive sustainable Production’ is one of the NBP’s key goals for 2015-2020 and the Swine Health Committee. This research helped address one key target, i.e., deployment of tools for...
Rapid detection of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus using real-time MinION nanopore sequencing
PRRSV is one of the most important pathogens affecting swine worldwide. The main characteristic that makes PRRSV a difficult pathogen to control is the genetic diversity of the virus and the frequent...
Use of Mobile Nanopore Sequencing to Detect and Genotype Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus
Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus continues to be a leading cause of disease and decreased production in the swine industry.
Development of a live-attenuated PRRSV vaccine capable of eliciting a broad spectrum of heterologous protection
PRRS modified live virus (MLV) vaccines have been licensed for clinical administration for over 20 years. The vaccines confer solid protection against homologous PRRSV strains. However, the extent...
