African Swine Fever Virus: An ongoing threat to the global swine industry

African Swine Fever Virus (ASFV) is a deadly (95-100% mortality rate) and highly contagious pathogen that primarily infects domestic and wild pigs. Originating in Sub-Saharan Africa, African Swine Fever (ASF) has been reported in more than 50 countries across Africa, Europe, and Asia and has extended into the Caribbean. Although it cannot infect humans, it has had serious economic impact on the swine industry with almost 25% of the global pig population dying of ASF from 2018-2019.

Transmission of ASF occurs through direct contact with infected pigs as well as exposure to their blood, body fluids, feces, and carcasses. Thus far, no effective treatment or efficacious vaccine has been developed. The currently implemented measures to slow the spread of ASF rely heavily on early detection, on-farm biosecurity measures, culling of herds, and movement control. All of these require reliable diagnostic assays to facilitate early warning, prompt intervention, and monitoring of transmission.

Current diagnostic methodologies include conventional and real-time PCR for detecting viral DNA, ELISA and lateral flow tests for detecting ASFV antigens or antibodies, and the more definitive but time-consuming virus isolation and hemadsorption (HAD).
