Determination of the sites of tissue localization, routes of viral shedding, duration of virus carriage, kinetics of antibody response, and potential of aerosol transmission of Porcine Deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) following inoculation of nursing pigs and their dams

Porcine deltacoronavirus (PDCoV) has recently emerged in the US. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the sites of tissue localization, routes of viral shedding, duration of virus carriage, kinetics of antibody response, and potential of aerosol transmission of…

Tissue localization, shedding, virus carriage, antibody response, and aerosol transmission of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) following inoculation of 4 week old feeder pigs.

Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) has recently emerged in the US.  The purpose of this investigation was to determine tissue localization, shedding pattern, virus carriage, antibody response, and aerosol transmission of PEDV following oral/nasal inoculation of 4-week-old feeder pigs.   Experimental…

PCVAD Induced Immune Dysfunction

This project included a team of PCVAD researchers from KSU, ISU and SDSU who utilized a single set of experimentally infected pigs to address several important questions related to pathobiology, immunology and immunodiagnostics of PCVAD. The four principal project objectives…
