PRRSV costs the US swine industry 560 million dollars each year in lost productivity. We can now successfully eliminate PRRSV from individual farms, but we cannot keep herds from becoming re-infected. With the NPB-stated goal of national PRRSV elimination, an…

Development of a Killed Subunit PRRS Vaccine

The focus of our research funded by the National Pork Board was to develop second generation killed PRRS vaccines. The portion of the PRRS virus responsible for stimulating the neutralizing immune response (an antibody response which removes the virus from…

Purified PRRS Viral Proteins

PRRS virus proteins that are immunogenic in pigs were expressed and purified. Nsp2p and nucleocapsid proteins are and will be available to PRRS researchers and can be used to detect exposure to PRRS virus, monitor immune responses, and to investigate…
