PEV-8 Link to Polioencephalomyelitis Suspected

UK - The Monthly Surveillance Report from the Veterinary Laboratories Agency (VLA) for November 2008 highlights disease caused by nematode worms in sows and three outbreaks of salmonellosis. Pneumonia caused by the PRRS virus was found to be the cause of increased mortality in weaned pigs. Further work carried out into an outbreak of porcine neurological disease first reported in 8- to 10-week-old pigs in June 2008 has raised the possibility of the involvement of the PEV-8 virus.
