PCV2 is the major causative agent of postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS) in pigs. Two genotypes of PCV2 have been identified: genotype 1 and 2 (Olvera et al., 2007). PCV2 genotype 2 was involved in the first cases of PMWS in Canada (Hamel et al.,. 1998). PCV2 genotype 1 may be more pathogenic than PCV2 genotype 2, as a recent study from Grau-Roma et al. (2007) showed that genotype 2 primary was found in non-PMWS affected herds in Spain, while genotype 1 was found in PMWS affected herds.
