Role of stress on early pathogenesis of Senecavirus A in pigs

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 with Dr. Fabio Vannucci shares results of his latest research on stress and its influence on Senecavirus A.

Key points

  • Impact of a stress model on the early pathogenesis of Senecavirus A was evaluated.
  • Time to detect replicating virus in snout skins and coronary bands was 48 hours post inoculation.
  • Na├»ve animals likely do not have enough time to develop vesicles during most transportation events, if exposed via the nasal route.
