CHINA - A Porcine Epidemic Diarrhoea virus (PEDv) vaccine has been released for the first time in China by the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

The G-type triple vaccine was developed by Kazakhstan animal research, reported Washington Heilongjiang Channel.

The chief researcher Feng Li said that the vaccine was good at preventing both single and mixed infections. The triple vaccine covers the three major pathogens causing the most harm to China's pigs.

It is estimated that the successful application of the vaccine each year could increase profit for the domestic pig industry by more than 300 billion yuan.

Since 2010, PED swept China, causing difficult times for the pig industry, and then also hit Korea, Japan, Thailand and other Asian countries.
