BACKGROUND Classical swine fever (CSF), caused by the Classical swine fever virus (CSFV), is an Office International des Epizooties (OIE) notifiable disease. However, we are far from fully understand the distribution, tissue tropism, pathogenesis, replication and excretion of CSFV in pigs. In this report, we investigated the dynamic distribution and tissue(More)
A simple and rapid assay for the detection of Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) was established using reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP). This study describes the amplification of the genomic RNA of CSFV under isothermal conditions (63 °C) within one hour, using a set of six primers (two outer primers, two inner primers(More)
The attenuated C-strain vaccine against classical swine fever virus (CSFV) is one of the safest and most effective attenuated vaccines. However, little is known of the host immune response after vaccination with the C-strain vaccine. Blood samples from vaccinated pigs were collected to evaluate the number of immune cells, the level of specific CSFV(More)
