Comparative pathogenesis of US porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) strain PC21A in conventional 9-day-old nursing piglets vs. 26-day-old weaned pigs.

Abstract

Our study demonstrated potential mechanisms by which porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) infection induces greater disease severity of nursing vs. weaned conventional pigs. Twenty-six-day-old weaned [PEDV-inoculated (n=11); mock (n=9)] and 9-day-old nursing pigs [PEDV-inoculated (n=9); mock (n=11)] were inoculated orally [8.9 log10 genomic equivalents… (More)
