Table 4 Mean of area under the curve (AUC) of PCV2 load over time for placebo and vaccinated animals according to the levels of PCV-2 antibody titre

From: Effect of Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) maternally derived antibodies on performance and PCV-2 viremia in vaccinated piglets under field conditions

PCV2 titre Placebo animals (n = 472) Vaccinated animals (n = 484)
Low titre (< 2.5 log10) 225.0 a,A (n = 169) 63.4 a,B (n = 173)
High titre (≥2.5 log10) 188.5 ab,A (n = 265) 55.4 a,B (n = 262)
Extremely high titre (≥3.7 log10) 147.6 b,A (n = 38) 75.5 a,B (n = 49)
  1. a,b Different letters in the same column indicate significant differences (p < 0.05)
  2. A, B Different letters in the same row indicate significant differences (p < 0.05). Only 15% of randomly pre-selected study animals, chosen as representative sample animals, were used
