Vaccination of Porcine Circovirus type 2 (PCV2)-infected Sows against Porcine Parvovirus (PPV) and Erysipelas: Effect on Post-weaning Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome (PMWS) and on PCV2 Genome Load in the Offspring
N. Rose, P. Blanchard, R. Cariolet, B. Grasland, N. Amenna, A. Oger, B. Durand, M. Balasch, A. Jestin and F. Madec
The effect of different Parvovirus+Erysipelas vaccination schemes in PCV2-infected sows on PMWS outcome in the offspring was investigated under experimental conditions. Six PCV2-free sows were first infected oro-nasally with PCV2 two months before insemination...

Molecular evolution of porcine circovirus type 2 genomes: Phylogeny and clonality
A. Olvera, M. Cortey and J. Segalés
Porcine circoviruses (PCVs) type 1 (PCV1) and type 2 (PCV2) show high levels of nucleotide similarity, but PCV1 is considered non-pathogenic and PCV2 has been associated with several disease outcomes in pigs, mainly postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome...

Genetic characterisation of Australian strains of porcine circovirus types 1 and 2
Muhling, J; Raye, WS; Buddle, JR; Wilcox, GE
Objective As post-weaning multi-systemic wasting syndrome (PMWS) has not been identified within Australia, to determine if the absence of disease was associated with genetic differences between the strains of porcine circovirus (PCV) present in Australia...

Protection of pigs against post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome by a recombinant adenovirus expressing the capsid protein of porcine circovirus type 2.
Wang X, Jiang P, Li Y, Jiang W, Dong X.
Post-weaning multisystemic wating syndrome (PMWS) associated with PCV2 was one of the most costly diseases currently faced by the swine industry. In order to develop a vaccine to control this disease, we previously constructed a recombinant adenovirus...
