Preventing congenital infection is important for the control of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS). Recently, in our laboratory, an inactivated porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) vaccine has been developed. Promising results in young pigs encouraged us to test the vaccine potency to prevent congenital infection. In the present study, the performance of this experimental inactivated vaccine was investigated in pregnant gilts. An advanced protocol was used to test the PRRSV vaccine efficacy. This protocol is based on recent insights in the pathogenes…
