Ruminant pestivirus infections of pigs have a worldwide distribution. The prevalence is varied and depends mainly on (i) contact with cattle, (ii) age of pigs and (iii) degree of homology of virus strains used for serology, with field strains of bovine virus diarrhoea virus (BVDV) infecting pigs. Emphasis should be laid on sources of BVDV other than cattle, e.g. contaminated vaccines and fetal calf serum. The need for differentiation of pestiviruses (hog cholera, bovine virus diarrhoea and… 

Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus: Recent Findings about Its Occurrence in Pigs

A survey of data on BVDV infection in pigs is presented, comparing information on prevalence in different countries and the results of experimental infections to understand this type of infection in Pigs better.

Bovine viral diarrhea virus infections in heterologous species

In heterologous hosts, BVDV infections with clinical signs analogous to those in cattle have been described and include disease of multiple organ systems, most notably the reproductive tract and immune system.

Comparative Analysis of Tunisian Sheep-like Virus, Bungowannah Virus and Border Disease Virus Infection in the Porcine Host

TSV is genetically closely related to CSFV and can replicate in domestic pigs, and field infections of pigs with TSV and other ruminant pestiviruses can interfere with serological diagnosis of classical swine fever.

Serological relationship between a novel ovine pestivirus and classical swine fever virus.

The calculated R values clearly indicated that the novel ovine pestivirus is antigenically more related to CSFV than to ruminant pestiviruses, in agreement with the results of the genomic analysis.

Swine and ruminant pestiviruses require the same cellular factor to enter bovine cells.

Qualitative analyses of the outcome of PEG-mediated infection of CRIB-1 cells indicated that the intracellular milieu was fully permissive for pestivirus replication, indicating that entry of pestiviruses into MDBK cells depends on a common plasma membrane or endosomal function, which is lacking in CRIBs.

Bovine virus diarrhoea virus: speculation and observations on current concepts.

It is suggested that, due to the importance of this syndrome, it may be an appropriate time to reconsider the use of "mucosal disease virus" to replace the ungainly name "BVDV".



Recent advances in pestivirus research.

The pestiviruses are among the smallest enveloped animal RNA viruses and possess a nucleocapsid of non-helical, probably icosahedral symmetry and currently hold generic status in the family Togaviridae.

The Comparative Biology of Classical Swine Fever

In this chapter, some of the characteristics of infection with ruminant pestiviruses will be considered in relation to classical swine fever/hog cholera, which the aim is to present a current perspective on a rapidly changing field of knowledge which is of concern to all those interested in HC.

Infection of pigs with bovine viral diarrhoea virus.

Bovine viral diarrhea infection in pregnant swine.

Intrauterine infection was confirmed in one of 20 gilts by isolation of BVDV, detection of neutralizing antibodies, and demonstration of microscopic lesions in the fetuses, characterized as nonsuppurative meningitis and choroiditis.

Bovine viral diarrhea virus in swine: characteristics of virus recovered from naturally and experimentally infected swine.

Circumstantial evidence points to swine as "carrier" hosts of BVDV, which was isolated from an Iowa farm brood sow and from her hysterectomy-derived, colostrum-deprived piglets.

Bovine viral diarrhea virus in swine: neutralizing antibody in naturally and experimentally infected swine.

Neutralizing antibodies against BVDV or hog cholera virus, produced experimentally in SPF pigs, were demonstrated to be due to different antigens rather than to a common antigen, although slight cross-neutralization reactions sometimes occur.
