We have 10 professors from the leading China Agriculture Universities including Prof Hanchun Yang, the leading swine disease expert and MOA chief advisor from China Agriculture University and Dr Changming Liu, the China leading PCV2 scientist, from Harbing Veterinarian Research Institute attending the KOL summit. KOLs had fierce discussion on how to evaluate the PCV2 vaccine efficacy and how to conduct the trials to evaluate vaccines. Viremia and qPCR are emphasized as the important indicator and means to fairly evaluate the vaccine efficacy instead of solely evaluating the pig performance in the end of cycle, which will be affected by many enteral factors.

In the meantime, around 130 customers were invited to participate the PCV2 seminar; while in the meantime, we had 100,000 views to our online live broadcasting. According to media, it is estimated that around 7,000 people watched this program at different time points.
