Senecavirus A in swine populations: a podcast episode

Dr. Guilherme Preis shares his work on Senecavirus A with Dr. Márcio Gonçalves for Swine Health Blackbelt, discussing his work at further understanding its epidemiology as well as different sampling techniques that can be used to monitor spread and viral shedding.

Persistence and shedding of Senecavirus A in naturally infected boars

In this recent publication from the Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, Dr. Matt Sturos from the UMN Veterinary Diagnostic Lab shares a case report establishing the shedding of Senecavirus A through boar semen. This study highlights the importance of considering semen as a potential biosecurity risk in the case of a Senecavirus A outbreak.

Breeding herd Senecavirus A infection: understanding its persistence

This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.

This week, Dr. Guilherme Preis, PhD candidate working with Drs. Cesar Corzo and Fabio Vannucci, shares his latest results about Senecavirus A persistence in sow farms after an outbreak.

Key points

  • Senecavirus A (SVA) continues to be responsible for an important number of FAD investigations.
  • SVA continues to circulate in breeding herds for up 21 weeks after clinical signs had been detected.
  • Heat check boars may contribute to population persistence of this virus.
