Current knowledge on Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV-3): A novel virus with a yet unknown impact on the swine industry
(Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 2018-12-12)
Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV-3) is a recently described virus belonging to the family Circoviridae. It represents the third member of genus Circovirus able to infect swine, together with PCV-1, considered non-pathogenic, and ...
Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) genetic variability under natural infection scenario reveals a complex network of viral quasispecies
(Scientific Reports, 2018-10-19)
Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) is a virus characterized by a high evolutionary rate, promoting the potential emergence of diferent genotypes and strains. Despite the likely relevance in the emergence of new PCV-2 variants, ...
Exploratory metagenomic analyses of periweaning failure-to-thrive syndrome-affected pigs
(Veterinary Record, 2018-11-09)
Modern pig farming is characterised by the emergence of several syndromes whose aetiology is unclear or has a multifactorial origin, including periweaning failure-to-thrive syndrome (PFTS). In fact, its specific aetiology ...
Characterization of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae strains in vaccinated and non-vaccinated pigs from Spanish slaughterhouses
(Veterinary Microbiology, 2019-02-20)
This study aimed to describe Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae) genetic variability in vaccinated (V) and non-vaccinated (NV) slaughtered pigs showing cranio-ventral pulmonary consolidation (CVPC). Ten V and 10 NV ...
Infection dynamics of porcine circovirus type 3 in longitudinally sampled pigs from four Spanish farms
(Veterinary Record, 2019-04-30)
Porcine circovirus type 3 (PCV-3) is a recently discovered virus in domestic pigs and wild boar. The virus has been described in pigs with different clinical/pathological presentations and healthy animals, but the dynamics ...
Detection and genotyping of Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV‐2) and detection of Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV‐3) in sera from fattening pigs of different European countries
(Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, 2020-05-01)
PCV-2 is considered one of the most economically important viral agents in swine worldwide. Recently, PCV-3 has been found in pigs affected by different disorders and in healthy animals. The objective of this epidemiological ...
