Pancreas Disease Cases Down so Far this Year

12 June 2013, at 1:00am

NORWAY - Cases of Pancreas Disease (PD) reported for the January to May period this year are lower than the number of cases reported during the same period of 2012.

The May PD report states that 20 cases of PD have been reported during January to May 2013.

Half of these cases are north of Hustadvika and overall there are only nine cases due to the 'old' subtype, SAV3.

The total number is under half of the total number of cases reported during the same time last year and is also slightly below 2011 (24 cases). In 2010, a total of 19 cases were reported in January-May.

It is still not possible to know whether this trend will reverse when water temperatures rise and the Veterinary Institute is closely monitoring the situation.
