porcine endogenous retrovirus

Abbreviation: PERV
The provirus of a porcine retrovirus. The possibility that PERVs could be activated after xenotransplantation of pig organs into humans has raised concern that xenotransplantation may result in the transfer of novel infections to the human population.
