10th March 2016

Syva Laboratories actively participated in PorciFORUM 2016, "The event for professionals of the porcine sector," which took place on March 3rd and 4th at the Palacio de Congresos in La Llotja, Lleida (Spain).

The first edition of this congress has exceeded expectations for attendance, attracting more than 400 professionals from the swine sector, including producers, technicians and veterinarians. PorciFORUM 2016 presented a technical program that addressed issues of maximum interest regarding health, management, facilities and feeding.

Syva sponsored a lecture on "Strategies to Control PRRS in the Field" offered by Dr. Lorenzo Fraile, Doctor of Veterinary Pharmacology. Dr. Fraile highlighted key aspects of the disease in relation to its transmission and contagion, natural immunity, vaccination, adaptation of gilts and biosecurity. Obtaining the immunization of replacement gilts against PRRS, and preventing imported cases from foreign countries are two key issues for the control of the disease.

On this occasion Syva's commercial booth was dedicated to the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the launch of Pyrsvac-183, the first live vaccine developed worldwide incorporating the European virus against Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS). Pyrsvac-183 is a live vaccine of European strain with optimal attenuation whose high antigenic load per dose positions it as an effective and safe alternative for controlling outbreaks of PRRS and as an excellent tool in the global control of the disease.
