Mycoplasma hyopneumonie: phisiology and immunity
The interaction between M. hyopneumoniae and its host make M. hyopneumoniae one of the most important contributors to porcine respiratory disease.
Keratinase supplementation has a positive effect on the performance of weanling piglets fed corn-soybean diets.Keratinase affects performance and intestinal morphology of piglets
The extent of inflammation associated with tail biting in finishing pigs was evaluated. Tail histopathology, carcass condemnation and the concentration of three acute phase proteins (APPs), C-reactive protein (CRP), serum amyloid-A (SAA) and haptoglobin (Hp), were examined in 12 tail-bitten and 13 control pigs.Tail biting induces a strong acute phase response and tail-end inflamm
Why tryptophan is an important amino acid for piglet nutrition
The consequences of the inflammatory and immune responses on tryptophan metabolism could impair the availability of tryptophan for body protein accretion, growth and all other metabolic processes involving this amino acid.
Pathogenicity: why are some strains pathogenic while some are not?
The factors of virulence allow the pathogenic strains to survive inside the animal and cause the infection, while the non-virulent strains lack these factors and can only survive in the upper respiratory tract as colonisers.
