Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus
Porcine Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRS), and Betaarterivirus suid 1 , is a viral disease infecting sows and pigs, leading to reproductive failure, pneumonia, and mortality in young animals. PRRS is a global problem. In the US, the cost to the industry is estimated at $664 million per year.
There is no treatment for PRRS. Prevention of infection is the primary means of control. Commercial vaccines have been licensed and have been effective at controlling outbreaks.
PRRS infects pigs.
