PIADC Science Program: Classical Swine Fever Fact Sheet

Classical swine fever (CSF) is a trade-restricting, contagious, viral disease affecting domestic and wild swine, which was eradicated from the U.S. in 1978. While it is not a threat to human health, a CSF outbreak would significantly affect our economy, disrupting agriculture markets and pork exports. The Plum Island Animal Disease Center is one of the few facilities within the U.S. that is permitted to utilize live CSF virus as part of its scientific activities.
