During the hunting season 1992/93 it has been possible to collect 450 Wild boar serum samples. A serological survey on Hog Cholera has been carried out, with the aim to reveal the presence of this disease in Liguria, since there have been recently revealed some cases in Wild boar in the nearby Tuscany. All samples examinated were negative. Later on tests for African Swine Fever, Foot and Mouth disease, Aujeszky disease, Lyme disease and Parvovirus were carried out on the same serum samples.
