A new plague threatens the farm...
rytis.cepulis_115-May-2018Both ASF presentations were very good as well as the discussion afterwards. The fact that experimental vaccine is ready is also very optimistic news for positive counties like my LT :)
Sow nutrition research has historically been only about 2% of the swine scientific literature, but new commercial facilities are changing this.

The skin is the first defensive line, as is the largest organ of the body.
Alex Eggen17-Apr-2018Very interesting and highly detailed and illustrative information.
It also shows the mechanism on how viral, bacterial and even subunit vaccines will/can work. Only for every vaccine antigen/adjuvant combination it will always be necessary to prove both safety and efficay when administered in the immune competent layers of the skin.
