Diagnostic test for Porcine Pseudorabies Virus (PPRV-gE Ab)
Pseudorabies virus (PRV) also called suid herpesvirus-1 (SuHV-1) is the cause of a viral Aujeszky's disease in swine. The virus is shed in the saliva and nasal secretions of swine infected by the respiratory route. Younger swine are the most severely affected by PRV infection and typically exhibit symptoms of central nervous infection whereas older swine exhibit symptoms of respiratory disease. Respiratory symptoms include: sneezing, coughing and nasal discharge. For suckling piglets, the incubation period of PRV is typically 2 to 4 days. Within 24h of exhibiting these symptoms, the piglets will progressively develop signs of central nervous system infection including trembling, excessive salivation, incoordination, ataxia, and seizures. Once piglets develop central nervous system abnormalities, they die within 24h to 36h. Mortality of suckling pigs with pseudorabies is extremely high, approaching 100%. 50% of infected 3- to 4-week-old animals die. Mortality decreases with age. Pregnant sows often abort when infected.
Humans are resistant to infection with PRV.
