African Swine Fever (ASF) is one of the most important infectious diseases of the pigs;
that also in the last years has undergoing an expansion in its distribution. The main objective
of this work has been to perform an epidemiological analysis of the disease evolution, that
contributes to understand its epidemiology and helps in the revision of preventive and control
measures of ASF.
The analysis of the notified ASF-outbreaks from January 1998 to march 2009 confirms
the expansion of the virus to eight new countries and a significant (70% outbreaks notified in
2007 and 2008) increase of the number of outbreaks in last two years. The increase of the
incidence in the African countries, and its expansion to new areas (especially the Caucasian
region) suppose a serious risk for the potential introduction of the disease in the European Union. For this reason, it would be necessary the update of the ASF-monitoring and control
systems, not only in endemic areas, but also in the free ones
