June 10, 2015 —
The purpose of the information reported here is to describe the current state of knowledge about control and epidemiology of PRRS. Information on aspects related to molecular epidemiology, within-farm transmission, and between-farm spread of the PRRSV is provided. Features related to the control and elimination of PRRS at farm and regional levels are described.
