Pseudorabies virus stability in boar sperm

Pseudorabies virus stability in boar sperm

Acta Veterinaria 43(5-6): 329-334

Pseudorabies virus (PRV) is a significant health as well as an economical problem in the swine industry. The virus can be isolated from the sperm of latently infected boars which, in the case of artificial insemination, accentuates the possibility of PRV spread. This fact is even more important in the field, where insemination is without control. It has been shown that PRV is able to survive for 48 hours from the time of ejaculation in sperm taken and processed for artificial insemination (Al). After that period the sperm showed a toxic effect on cells in tissue culture which made further testing impossible.
