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.Continue reading “Senecavirus A in swine populations: a podcast episode”
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.Continue reading “Persistence and shedding of Senecavirus A in naturally infected boars”
Assessing Senecavirus A shedding and transmission in growing pig populations
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, Drs. Preis and Corzo are inviting you to participate in an AASV-funded project regarding the epidemiology of Senecavirus A in growing pigs.Continue reading “Assessing Senecavirus A shedding and transmission in growing pig populations”
Transmission of a live influenza A virus vaccine in commercial pre-weaned pigs
The Plos One journal just published a new study by Dr. Gustavo Lopez and the Torremorell lab. The objectives of the project were to 1)assess the onset and duration of live attenuated influenza vaccine shedding in vaccinated pre-weaned pigs, 2)investigate the transmission of the live attenuated influenza vaccine from vaccinated to non-vaccinated pigs under field conditions and 3)evaluate whether the live attenuated influenza vaccine could be aerosolized and detected in the environment.Continue reading “Transmission of a live influenza A virus vaccine in commercial pre-weaned pigs”
