• PMWS
  • Therefore, it is assumed that PMWS is a multifactorial disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) causes postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS) in growing pigs but generally requires the presence of other infectious or non-infectious factors to produce the full clinical expression of disease. (slu.se)
  • Three-day-old colostrum-deprived pigs infected with PCV2 and PPV developed severe PMWS, and a possible role for interleukin 10 as well as impaired production of antibodies to PCV2 in the development of disease was observed. (slu.se)
  • pigs
  • Porcine circoviral disease (PCVD) and Porcine circovirus associated disease (PCVAD), is a disease seen in domestic pigs. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, concurrent infection with porcine parvovirus or PRRS virus, or immunostimulation lead to increased replication of PCV-2 and more severe disease in PCV-2-infected pigs. (wikipedia.org)
  • There is no significant correlation of the disease with virus sequence variation with affected and control pigs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many pigs affected by the circovirus also seem to develop secondary bacterial infections, like Glässer disease (Haemophilus parasuis), pulmonary pasteurellosis, colibacilosis, salmonellosis and others. (wikipedia.org)
  • Forty-eight feeder pigs were used in an experiment to determine Virginiamycin's effectiveness in preventing swine dysentery. (k-state.edu)
  • Four-week-old colostrum fed pigs infected with PCV2 in combination with E. coli did not develop clinical disease, but alterations of functions of immune cells were observed ex vivo and could be related to the presence of PCV2. (slu.se)
  • clinical
  • This disease causes illness in piglets, with clinical signs including progressive loss of body condition, visibly enlarged lymph nodes, difficulty in breathing, and sometimes diarrhea, pale skin, and jaundice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Virginiamycin was judged effective in preventing clinical cases of swine dysentery, but it has not been cleared for use in swine. (k-state.edu)
  • The presence of immunomodulatory sequences in the genome of PCV2 may contribute to evasive mechanisms utilized by the virus during persistent infection of immune cells and/or development of clinical disease. (slu.se)
  • African
  • This study used a molecular and ecological approach to investigate the role of the bushpig in the epidemiology of African swine fever at the wildlife-livestock interface in Uganda. (ruforum.org)
