New PORCIVIR's website about swine viral infections

PORCIVIR is a project coordinated by CReSA for the study of swine viral diseases that have economic, sanitary and public health repercussions. PORCIVIR has an exclusive website available, in which you will be able to consult any information in relation to the project, including the last publications.

PORCIVIR (Pathogenesis of porcine viral infections) is a multidisciplinary project. A team made up of seven working groups, with a total of 51 researchers belonging to four leading institutions on animal health in Spain participate in this project:

  • CBM-CSIC (Centro de Biología Molecular)
  • CNB-CSIC (Centro Nacional de Biotecnología)
  • CReSA (Centre de Recerca en Sanitat Animal)
  • INIA (Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria)
  • UCM (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)

Activities are focused on four key points:

  1. Development of innovative, efficacious vaccines and vaccine strategies
  2. Study of the epidemiology, immune response and pathogenic mechanisms of these diseases
  3. Development of standardized models of infection and diagnostic techniques
  4. Risk assessment for animal and human health

The working plan includes basic and applied research about several viral pathogens that infect pigs, of which there are different degrees of scientific knowledge:

  • porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome
  • swine circovirus type 2
  • swine influenza virus
  • African swine fever virus
  • classical swine fever virus
  • foot and mouth disease virus
  • Aujeszky’s disease virus
  • hepatitis E virus
  • porcine norovirus and sapovirus
  • porcine torque teno virus
  • torovirus

In addition to an interest in scientific progress, all the swine viral infections dealt with display different consequences for the consumer, porcine producers and regulating institutions. The purpose of this new website is transferring knowledge to companies, governmental administrations, clinical veterinarians and pig producers.

PORCIVIR belongs within the framework of the CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 Program, which is an initiative that supports high quality research that is made up of the leading consolidated groups within the Spanish world of science, and which has an accredited history within the scientific and technical international community.
