Professional profile

Denis Vio is a veterinarian. After graduating in Veterinary Medicine from Padua University, he attended  a postgraduate course entitled, “ “Animal Health, Hygiene and Pathology of Aquatic Species and Hygiene of Fish Products”. At present, he works at the diagnostic service in Pordenone. His main fields of activity regard swine pathology and dairy cow pathology. Diagnostic activity is mainly linked to the isolation and identification of the main pathogens and the application of biomolecular methods for the detection of viruses causing respiratory and enteric diseases in swine. His laboratory activity is accompanied by consultations at swine farms. He is involved in research projects in both animal and food hygiene.

Since 2005 Denis Vio’s research interest is represented by swine pathology; in particular from 2008 to 2010, his research attention was focused on Salmonella both in reproduction and breeding farms. In the last few years his research field has switched to swine respiratory diseases, particularly the study of interactions between bacterial and viral agents causing respiratory diseases and the study and application of innovative diagnostic tools, as bronco-alveolar lavages and oral fluids.

Denis Vio is the Scientific Coordinator of the Research Project entitled RC IZSVe 11/12 Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) and Porcine Circovirus type 2 (PCV2) to monitor the use of oral fluids by serological and molecular methods. This project aims to validate the use of oral fluids to detect PRRSV and PCV2 infections in pigs at different ages as well as to assess the value of oral-fluid diagnostics as a method of disease monitoring in weaning herds. He is also involved in other research projects regarding dairy cow pathologies and farmed salmonid pathologies.
