Researchers continue to search for PEDv answers

By Jennifer Carrico

The introduction of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus into the United States in May 2013 has caused severe harm to the pork industry, with nearly 7,000 operations affected in 30 states.

Lisa Becton, director of swine health and information for the National Pork Board, said the research continues to develop producer resources and containment strategies. Becton spoke during a standing-room-only session at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa.

“When the virus became a problem last year, the National Pork Board’s swine health committee met to help make decisions on what research needed done and what the timeline could be to get results,” Becton said. “A strategic task force was also formed with input from the American Association of Swine Practitioners, the National Pork Producers Council, the National Pork Board, along with state and international associations to see how to best handle this outbreak.”

The initial research started in June 2013 to determine what the virus looked like, how it affected the hogs, the environmental stability and what kind of diagnostic test would be the best option to determine if the disease was present.
