Overview of Porcine parvovirus

Porcine parvovirus (PPV) is a single-stranded, non-enveloped DNA virus roughly 5 kb in length. PPV belongs to the family Parvoviridae, Parvovirinae subfamily, and Protoparvovirus genus. First identified from samples collected from pigs experiencing SMEDI syndrome (stillbirths, mummification, embryonic death, and infertility) at the end of the 1960s, PPV is among the most important infectious agents causing infertility in pigs.
