Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea

The Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV) is a virus similar to transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE), and is a disease only affecting pigs. PEDV is transmitted via the fecal-oral route and may appear to be the same as TGE, with acute diarrhea within 12 to 36 hours of onset. Over 8 million pigs have been lost in the United States, with much higher numbers in Europe, China, Korea, and Japan.
