GLOBAL - The new PCV2d variant of the Porcine Circovirus is an emerging virus that has been associated with vaccine failure.

Findings of PCV2d are increasing and so it is of increasing importance to veterinarians.

In a PCV2d challenge model, Merial's CIRCOVAC vaccination was given to piglets to protect against PCV2d.

The study found that the vaccine worked well and piglets had reduced PCV2d vireamia, reduced nasal and fecal shedding of PCV2d and reduced lesions.
