This article explains the main preventive measures against App, focusing on the use of antimicrobials and vaccines.
Practical experiences in swine disease control
This article is about the diagnosis of the infection caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App) in acute, chronic or subclinical cases.
It has not proved possible to actively eliminate App from chronically affected permanently occupied breeder-feeder herds.
This paper describes the acute outbreak of App within a pig population and how control may be achieved.
Gilts are the population most likely to excrete M. hyo during lactation because they will probably have become infected within 200 days prior to their first farrowing.
The method is based on oral fluid collection from the groups of viraemic pigs by means of cotton ropes that will be hung in the incoming gilts pens.
