The CSFV dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for detection of Classical swine fever virus by using qPCR. Classical swine fever(CSF) or hog cholera (also sometimes called pig plague, is a highly contagious disease ofpigsandwild boar. Swine fever causesfever,skin lesions, convulsions and usually (particularly in young animals)deathwithin 15 days. The disease is endemic in much ofAsia,Centraland South America, and parts of Europeand Africa. It was believed to have been eradicated in the United Kingdomby 1966, but an outbreak occurred in East Angliain 2000. The infectious agent responsible is a single-stranded RNA virus CSFV (previously called hog cholera virus) of the genus Pestivirus in the family Flaviviridae. CSFV is closely related to the ruminant pestiviruses which cause Bovine viral diarrhoea (BVDV) and Border disease (BDV).
