Rotavirus Update: Pathogen, Diagnostics, Immunity and Prevention - Dr. Darin Madson, Iowa State University, Veterinary Diagnostic Lab, from the 2013 Boehringer Ingelheim Swine Health Seminar, August 16-18, 2013, Wrightsville Beach, NC, USA.

Dr. Darin Madson provides an update on rotavirus: the pathogen; diagnostics; immunity and prevention. The rotavirus is everywhere and almost all farms will test positive, and is a major cause of diarrhea.

The things that make this rotavirus challenging is that it is very resistant to environmental degradation plus it has it has the ability to easily swap genetic material with other viruses. This means there are several rotavirus classifications that can be diagnosed.
