  20. 20. Conclusion:  PCV2  causes  disease,  but  presence  in  lymph  nodes  does  not                                              prevent  immune  response  to  PCV2  vaccina-on.     Kristensen  et  al.  2011.  Prev  Vet  Med  98:250.   Vaccina-on  Works:  Meta-­‐Analysis  (66  trials)   Vaccines  against  PCV2  improve  growth     Vaccines  against  PCV2  reduce  mortality  
  21. 21. How  is  vaccina-on  working????????????   §  No  one  really  knows  the  mechanism.   §  Vaccines  do  not  induce  robust  an-body  response.   §  Neutralizing  an-bodies  exist  but  do  not  eliminate  virus.   §  Cytotoxic  T  cells  not  a  general  feature  of  protein  vaccines.   §  But,  no  ques-on  that  it  works.    
  22. 22. Concluding  Observa-ons   v PCV2  is  a  highly  conserved  virus  displaying  limited  gene-c   diversity  in  the  United  States   v PCV2  is  endemic  is  swine  herds;  PCV2b  is  more  common   than  PCV2a.   v PCV2  exposure  starts  at  birth;  infec-on  can  be  lifelong.     v Vaccina-on  effec-vely  controls  PCVAD  and  reduces   infec-ous  pressure,  but  does  not  eliminate  virus.
