Two major genotypes of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) have been described: PCV2a and PCV2b. Previous studies mainly used PCV2a to experimentally reproduce reproductive failure in sows. This study aims to determine the clinical and virological outcome of surgical inoculation of 55-day-old immuno-incompetent porcine foetuses with PCV2a or PCV2b. Twelve foetuses were inoculated with PCV2: three with the post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS)-associated PCV2a strain Stoon-1010, three… CONTINUE READING
