Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is an economically important viral disease for the pig industry worldwide. This disease has brought great losses to the Chinese pig production in recent years, particularly following the emergence of the highly pathogenic PRRS virus (PRRSV), and has become an intractable problem for the development of pig industry in China. This paper will review the history of PRRS, the epidemic of atypical PRRS caused by the highly pathogenic virus, and the molecular characteristics of the Chinese highly pathogenic PRRSV, and the development of vaccines against PRRS in China, as well as current control status and perspective of PRRS in China.
