About Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is a highly contagious, economically devastating disease. Reproductive problems, such as premature births, late-term abortions and increased stillbirths, lead to increased piglet mortality and reduced growth; respiratory disease sickens pigs and makes them vulnerable to secondary infection.
Infected pigs may be asymptomatic or present with general symptoms that are indistinguishable from those of swine influenza, pseudorabies (Aujeszky's disease), classical swine fever, parvovirus, encephalomyocarditis, chlamydiosis and mycoplasmosis. Left undetected, these animals will quickly spread PRRS throughout a herd via contaminated body fluids.
With a disease like PRRS, there's no time for delay or doubt. Effective control depends upon early identification and the quick removal or isolation of infected animals. Serological tests, such as the IDEXX PRRS X3 Ab Test, in combination with IDEXX RealPCR solutions for identification of PRRSV, provide the prompt, definitive diagnoses needed to combat PRRS, ascertain negative herd status, and protect producer profits.
The IDEXX PRRS X3 Ab Test ELISA can be used to develop herd profiles that provide important decision-making information to better manage PRRS-exposed herds. The IDEXX xChek® software provides the ability to assess the significance of changes in herd profiles over time. You can perform additional statistical and/or graphical analyses and export the data to Microsoft® Excel files.
