Porcine endogenous retroviruses (PERVs) represent a risk for xenotransplantation using pig cells or organs since they are integrated in the genome of all pigs and infect human cells in vitro . Recombinants between PERV-A and PERV-C have been described in pigs in vivo and found de novo integrated in the genome of somatic cells, but not in the germ line. To study whether PERV-A/C can infect and have a pathogenic effect in normal pigs, German landrace pigs were inoculated with high-titre PERV-A/C. No provirus integration was found in blood cells or in various tissues, and no antibody production was observed, indicating the absence of infection.
