According to John Kolb, DVM, professional services veterinarian for BIVI, the Monitoring Assignment for Global Insight of Circovirus (MAGIC) study provided a unique opportunity to extensively examine the gross clinical effects of PCVAD on pigs during the periods of peak mortality within the participating production system. “More importantly, the clinical animals with concurrent disease infections generally had more PCV2 antigen and lesions associated with concurrent disease process than those with non-concurrent infections.”
