It’s back: Clinical outbreak of PCV2 in genetic herds reported

A clinical outbreak of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) occurred this past winter in otherwise healthy, well-vaccinated herds, Clayton Johnson, DVM, of Carthage Veterinary Service, told Pig Health...

Processing fluids’ effectiveness in monitoring PCV2 in sow herds

Vaccines have provided effective control options for PCV2, but vertical transmission remains a challenge for some farms.

Processing fluids hold promise for PCV2 testing on sow farms

Understanding the pathogen status of a sow herd helps determine the prevention, control and treatment options to protect piglets as they grow. For PCV2 there is no treatment; however, vaccination is...

The changing face of PCV: Virus experts compare notes on evolving pathogen in US swine herds

Clinical disease due to porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) has been dramatically reduced thanks to vaccination, but concern remains about the persistence of PCV2 subclinical infection, even in...

Two-dose Fostera® Gold PCV MH regimen yields performance advantages

DISCOVERIES, Issue 16: Pigs in a study that received two doses of Fostera® Gold PCV MH, the new Zoetis vaccine for PCV2 and M. hyo, had numerically fewer reactions, less morbidity, less mortality.

Tale of two viruses: PCV3 impact unknown while PCV2 continues to evolve

Genetic sequencing demonstrates that porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV3) is significantly different from PCV2, but otherwise little is known about the virus.

Epitope-comparison study illustrates broad coverage of Fostera Gold® PCV MH against PCV2 viruses

DISCOVERIES, Issue 4: Swine disease specialists speculated that a PCV2 vaccine containing two genotypes — PCV2a and PCV2b — would significantly improve the coverage provided against PCV2...

PCV3: A challenge independent from PCV2

Anyone involved in raising pigs is aware of PCV2, but new on the scene is porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV3). Although the two viruses are both circular DNA viruses in the same family, they are...

Don’t get complacent with PCV2 protection

Vaccines for porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) currently do an adequate job of cross protecting against new genotypes of the virus, but swine veterinarians and producers shouldn’t let their guard...

PCV2: Future considerations for an evolving virus

Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) may not be a new virus challenge for pork producers and swine veterinarians, but it remains a constant challenge.

Large field trial showed Fostera Gold® PCV MH was effective against prevalent PCV2d genotype

DISCOVERIES, Issue 3: A large, commercial field trial conducted with Fostera® Gold PCV MH showed it was also effective against PCV2d, the most prevalent genotype of the virus circulating among US...

Pigs vaccinated with Fostera®PCV MH equally protected, weighed nearly 8 pounds more in large comparison trial

DISCOVERIES, Issue 1: Pigs vaccinated with Fostera® PCV MH were equally protected against porcine circovirus (PCV) type 2d as well as Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyo) and weighed 7.78 pounds more...

Colostrum may be best sample for PCV2 on sow farms

Colostrum may be the best sample to test for determining whether porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) is present in sow herds, according to researchers at Iowa State University (ISU).
