Porcine circovirus 3 – is it a virus to worry about?

Fonte: pigprogress.net

Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2) is well-known in the swine industry, but is there reason to worry about its cousin PCV3? At the Spanish research institute CReSA-IRTA a range of studies have been conducted lately. In short: there’s a good reason to keep an eye on it.

At least 5 studies were devoted to PCV3 at the recently held European Symposium of Porcine Health Management (ESPHM), mid-April 2021. At the event, held entirely digitally, the Spanish team of CReSA-IRTA led by Dr Segalés and Dr Sibila presented new insights of this virus, which was discovered and described a few years ago. The team at CReSA-IRTA started working on PCV3 in late 2016, when it participated in a collaboration study with other European groups to the first detection of the virus.
