Sorry, no etymologies found.
In 2001, Krakowka experimentally reproduced disease in immunostimulated gnotobiotes using PCV2 alone leading to the hypothesis that PCV2 is the necessary but insufficient cause of PMWS.
The Prairie Swine Centre research team has recently completed experiments indicating that the severity and incidence of clinical signs and lesions in PCV2b-infected gnotobiotes, with and without KLH/ICFA immunostimulation, were indistinguishable from those of gnotobiotes inoculated with PCV2a using the same experimental model and reported in the past decade.
