Abstract

The main target cells for African swine fever virus (ASFV) replication in pigs are of monocyte macrophage lineage and express markers typical of the intermediate to late stages of differentiation. The lack of a porcine cell line, which accurately represents these target cells, limits research on...

Abstract

The African swine fever virus (ASFV) was first detected in wild boar in the Demilitarized Zone, a bordered area between South and North Korea, on 2 October 2019. Phylogenetic analyses of ASFV genes encoding p72 and CD2v indicated that the causative strain belongs to genotype II and serogroup 8,...

Abstract

Background: African swine fever (ASF) is an infectious transboundary animal disease which causes high mortality, approaching 100% in domestic pigs and it is currently considered as the most serious constraint to domestic pig industry and food security globally. Despite regular ASF outbreaks within...

Abstract

The use of antimicrobials in livestock constitutes an increasing global concern, and many countries pursue approaches to reduce the amount used, particularly in the pig production industry. The EU Commission has decided, due to environmental concerns, to phase out use of zinc oxide in pigs by 2022. ...

Abstract

African swine fever (ASF) is one of the most important diseases in pigs. Since there are no effective vaccines against the virus, farm biosecurity and good farming practices are the only effective tools to prevent the spread of the ASF virus (ASFV) in pig holdings. Hence, an important component of...

Abstract

Given the importance of pork in the Bhutanese diet and to enhance food security, the Government of Bhutan has generated policies to promote development of the swine sector in the country. One of the main threats to swine farming is classical swine fever (CSF), a transboundary disease of wild and...

Abstract

Classical Swine Fever (CSF) and African Swine Fever (ASF) represent a constant threat for the pig production system. These viral diseases are similar in their salient epidemiological characteristics and the same control measures are often applied. Both are scheduled on the List of the World...

Abstract

The CD2-like African swine fever virus (ASFV) gene 8DR, (also known as EP402R) encodes for a structural transmembrane glycoprotein that has been shown to mediate hemadsorption and be involved in host immunomodulation as well as the induction of protective immune response. In addition, several...

Abstract

Mathematical modelling is nowadays a pivotal tool for infectious diseases studies, completing regular biological investigations. The rapid growth of computer technology allowed for development of computational tools to address biological issues that could not be unravelled in the past. The global...

Abstract

All 42 available ASFV genomes were collected from GenBank, which were then aligned using MAFFT software, a fast multiple sequence alignment program. Our study revealed that the ASFV genomes contain some regions with high genetic diversity. Random mutation across the genome cannot explain this...
