PCVD, PRRS and swine influenza dominate the Barcelona conference on pig diseases

With 113 papers delivered, PCV2 was the top topic at last June’s symposium on Emerging and Re-Emerging Pig Diseases, with PRRS not far behind 


The 6th International Symposium on Emerging and Re-emerging Pig Diseases took place in Barcelona, Spain, on June 12-15, 2011. Just over 1,000 participants attended the conference, which had 250 oral and poster presentations, in addition to keynote lectures on porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), PRRS and influenza viruses. PCV2 (113 papers) was the top topic again, as it has been for the last three Emerging Diseases symposia, followed by PRRS (71) and various emerging and re-emerging diseases (66).
