Zoetis affirms its commitment to finding a solution to help control the recent outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv). The virus has been positively identified in 17 states since April.
Zoetis is supporting University of Minnesota researchers to develop a rapid PEDv diagnostic test.
"Helping fund the development of the rapid diagnostic tool is just one way we are investing in and are committed to finding a solution against this virus," says Gloria Basse, vice president, U.S. pork business unit, Zoetis. "We believe that diagnostic tools and vaccines are part of the solution equation. Our research and development teams will continue to collaborate with our university and industry partners until this disease is controlled."
