The CSFV RT-epPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Classical swine fever virus detection by using epPCR. Classical swine fever virus (previously called hog cholera virus) is a single-stranded RNA virus of the genus Pestivirus in the family Flaviviridae. The virus is closely related to the ruminant pestiviruses which cause bovine viral diarrhoea and border disease. Classical swine fever virus is responsible of Classical swine fever or hog cholera (also sometimes called pig plague). Swine fever causes fever, skin lesions, convulsions and usually (particularly in young animals) death within 15 days. The disease is endemic in much of Asia, Central and South America, and parts of Europe and Africa. It was believed to have been eradicated in the United Kingdom by 1966, but an outbreak occurred in East Anglia in 2000.
