New developments in the fight against swine fever

The course of a classic swine fever outbreak is determined in large part by the virus strain with which the pigs are infected. That is the conclusion Eefke Weesendorp recently presented in her doctoral thesis. She has definitively proven that the virus can occur in the air and can therefore be transmitted through an airborne vector.

The course of a classic swine fever outbreak is determined in large part by the virus strain with which the pigs are infected. That is the conclusion Eefke Weesendorp recently presented in her doctoral thesis. She has definitively proven that the virus can occur in the air and can therefore be transmitted through an airborne vector.

In her thesis, she provides evidence that the virus can survive in the air in barns housing infected pigs. Pigs in nearby stalls therefore run a risk of infection as well.

Her thesis also shows that the more aggressive the classic swine fever virus strain is, the more viruses can be transmitted by the infected pigs.
