Project: Field safety study in two week old piglets using three vaccinations with an overdose of a Porcine Circovirus Type 2 (PCV-2) vaccine in Belgium

project duration
30-NOV-05 – 30-MAY-06
The aim of the study is to determine the safety of an inactivated PCV-2 vaccine by injecting two week old piglets three times successively. The vaccinated group will be compared to a negative control group concerning health status, weight, the presence of antibodies in the blood and findings on necropsy. Possible relationships between the vaccination and the observations will be investigated.
