Update on PEDV

National Pork Board


Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus pedv

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV)

  • Overview of the disease

  • Current US status

  • Actions to manage PEDV

  • American Association of Swine Veterinarians review

  • Q/A


Pedv initial focus

PEDV – Initial focus

  • Coordinated effort by all key stakeholders to understand where PEDV was/is occurring and how to best manage it:

    • United States Department of Agriculture (multiple divisions)

    • National Pork Board

    • National Pork Producers Council

    • American Association of Swine Veterinarians


Pedv what is it

PEDV – what is it?

  • PEDV is a diarrheal disease of pigs that has recently been found in the United States and is similar to the TGE virus (Transmissible Gastroenteritis virus)

  • PEDV was confirmed in the US on May 16th, 2013 by diagnostic tests at the USDA National Veterinary Services Laboratory (NVSL) in Ames, IA


Pedv what it is

PEDV – What it is…

  • PEDV currently exists in many different parts of the world

  • Considered to be a production disease

  • Can be managed/controlled/eliminated with targeted biosecurity efforts


Pedv what it is not

PEDV – What it is NOT…

  • Not zoonotic

  • Not a food safety concern

  • Not a listed disease of the OIE

  • Not on the National Animal Health Reporting System (NAHRS) Reportable Disease List

  • Not considered a Foreign Animal Disease in the United States

  • No interstate trade restrictions pertaining to PEDV


Pedv what are the symptoms

PEDV – What are the symptoms?

  • PEDV symptoms can vary from TGE but are generally similar:

    • Symptoms on farm can range from mild to rapid and explosive spread

    • Diarrhea and vomiting in pigs of all ages

      • Most severe in baby pigs

        • Mortality ~ 100% for pigs < 7 days of age

        • Mortality ~ 90% in pigs 8-21 days of age

      • Sows and older growing swine can show various degrees of illness, but generally more mild than baby pigs


Pedv how is it diagnosed

PEDV – How is it diagnosed?

  • Laboratory confirmation is the only way to diagnose and differentiate PEDV from TGE

    • Many different labs working together to have needed diagnostic tests available: Iowa State, University of Minnesota, Kansas State, South Dakota State, NVSL

      • Current diarrheal cases have detected TGE, so it is very important to work with your veterinarian for an accurate diagnosis!


Pedv what is the current status

PEDV – What is the current status?

  • Positive samples have been identified in multiple states

  • PEDV has been identified in both sow farms as well as growing pig sites

  • Are there concerns about other potential sources of PEDV?


Pedv status of sampling

PEDV – status of sampling

  • Confirmation of the disease has been from samples taken from sick pigs

  • After the initial diagnosis of PEDV, concerns arose that feed or ingredients might be a potential source of PEDV

    • USDA has worked closely with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to sample feedstuffs

    • No positive samples have been identified to date

    • However, testing is ongoing


Pedv what s next

PEDV – What’s next?

2013 Supplemental Funding PED research

  • Speed and effectiveness

  • Transparent and objective

  • Targeted projects with short timeframes

  • Flexibility with oversight of Swine Health Committee leadership


Porcine epidemic diarrhea ped

Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea - PED

2013 Supplemental Funding request: $410,000

  • PEDV Needs

    • Support current “entry” survey

    • Support next “epidemiology” survey

    • Carrier, immunity, transmission, challenge

    • Diagnostic tools and validation

    • Viral propagation and survival


Pedv what s next1

PEDV – What’s next?

  • Work with the Swine Health Committee, AASV, NPPC and other key stakeholders to initiate the research process for PEDV

  • Goal is to rapidly respond and provide needed information regarding PEDV for management of this virus


Pedv investigation 2013

PEDv Investigation 2013


Survey instrument

Survey Instrument

  • Primary infection

  • First site/herd – confirmed positive PEDv

  • Any stage of production

  • Risk factors – common to all or many confirmed positive cases

  • Characterize the clinical presentation

  • Also survey negative herd – case control for comparison


Information gathering

Information Gathering

  • Herd information

    • # & type on site

    • Nearby farms

    • Biosecurity

    • Entries onto site

    • Trucks/trailers

    • Security breaches


Information gathering continued

Information Gathering - continued

  • Inputs

    • Semen

    • Vaccines

    • Feed

    • Feed supplements/base mix/premix

    • Protein


Characterize the clinical presentations on the farm

Characterize the clinical presentations on the farm

  • Clinical signs

  • Date of onset

  • Morbidity

  • Mortality

  • Samples to veterinary diagnostic laboratory

  • Recovery


Data analysis

Data Analysis

  • National Center for Foreign Animal & Zoonotic Disease Defense (FAZD)

  • US Department of Agriculture – Center for Epidemiology And Animal Health (CEAH)

  • National Pork Board

  • National Pork Producers Council

  • American Association of Swine Veterinarians


Next steps

Next Steps

  • Lateral transmission

  • Containment & elimination?

  • Hypotheses generation

  • Further research
