Says in most recent trial, 40 animals infected with two prevalent types of the PRRS virus, were tested, with the trial demonstrating the gene-edited pigs were 100% resistant to both types of the PRRS virus, confirming previous academic findings. In the next phase of trials, Genus says it will be evaluating whether PRRSv resistance was preserved across generations by breeding and testing the offspring of the first generation of edited pigs. These trials will be included as part of the submissions to the US Food & Drug Administration as part of the regulatory review process, it adds.
