SwineCast 1040, ATM – Going In-Depth on African Swine Fever

SwineCast 1040
  • In this episode of At The Meeting Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison, discussion continues on African Swine Fever (ASF) outbreaks in China and Europe.
  • Dr. Montserrat Torremorell, Dr. Tom Wetzell, and Dr. Gordon Spronk have an important conversation about the impact of ASF on the global swine industry, and what it could mean if it reaches the United States.
  • The cohosts sit down with Dr. José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaíno from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid to discuss the history of the disease and the work he and his team have done to combat ASF, such as developing laboratory tests to aid in diagnosis and control.
  • "African swine fever is, in general, an underestimated disease that many people don’t understand," says Dr. Sánchez-Vizcaíno. "But one of the keys to fighting ASF is an early-detection system."
