    Dear Sir,

    Laboratoires Bonapp from France is active for 40 years in production & sales of homeopathic vet pharmaceuticals and premixes, based on plant extracts, to be incorporated into the feed.

    Our premix Concentrate Eptibron S, mix of more than 15 plant extracts, has already demostrated efficiency in PMWS syndroms in the area of Bretagne, in France. These trial results are available like others coming from the Nürtingen university - Germany or field trials. We would send them on request.

    Our company is interested in explaining her experience, helping to reduce problems caused by circovirus and organizing trials with any professional partner.

    With best regards

    Jean-Philippe Gaspar

    On behalf of the EU Framework 6 Porcine Circovirus Diseases (PCVD) project consortium (www.pcvd.org) I would like to welcome all visitors to the joint discussion forum on Porcine Circovirus Diseases.

    Diseases associated with PCV2 include Post-weaning Multi-systemic Wasting Syndrome (PMWS), Porcine Dermatitis Nephropathy Syndrome (PDNS), respiratory disease, reproductive disease and a range of other disease expressions.

    These diseases have had a global impact on the health and welfare of pigs and progress in understanding and tackling them can only be more rapid through international collaboration and co-operation.

    I hope that this discussion forum will generate useful and broad ranging debates, so don't just drop in to have a look - TAKE PART.
