Estimated losses associated with M. hyopneumoniae alone and M. hyopneumoniae in combination with PRRSV were among the four health challenges with the highest estimated average loss for all pigs in the study population.

The interaction between M. hyopneumoniae and its host make M. hyopneumoniae one of the most important contributors to porcine respiratory disease.
It is believed that TTSuVs themselves do not directly cause any disease but they could potentiate coinfecting pathogens and participate as triggering factors for diseases like PCVDs and PRDC.
