IGG IMMUNE RESPONSE TO TREPONEMA PEDIS T A4 IN FIELD CASES OF EAR NECROSIS

Ear necrosis is a syndrome affecting pigs shortly after weaning and is regarded as an animal welfare issue. The etiology is unknown but Treponema spp., predominantly Treponema pedis, are commonly detected in the lesions. Oral treponemes have been suggested as source of infection, transferred by biting and licking behavior. The aim of this study was to investigate the IgG response in field samples towards a whole cell lysate of T. pedis and a putative virulence protein, TPE0673.

ANTIMICROBIAL CONSUMPTION AND EXTENDED-SPECTRUM Β-LACTAMASE (ESBL)-PRODUCING ESCHERICHIA COLI IN ITALIAN FATTENING UNITS

Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli represents a risk for both human and pig health. Furthermore, antimicrobials misuses may increase ESBL spread. The aim of this study was to investigate, in latter stages of production, relationships between presence of ESBL-producing E. coli and antimicrobial consumption.

ANTIMICROBIAL SUSCEPTIBILITY OF FINNISH ENTEROTOXIGENIC E. COLI IN PIGS IN YEARS 2013-2016  

Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli can cause porcine neonatal and post weaning diarrhea, and potentiated sulfa drugs and aminopenicillins are recommended to be used for treatment of E. coli diarrhea. Due to quite commonly occurring antimicrobial resistance (AMR), diagnostic samples are sent to the laboratory to find out resistance profiles of enterotoxigenic E. coli on pig farms.

DETECTION OF BRACHYSPIRA HYODYSENTERIAE IN A CARRION CROW (CORVUS CORONE)  

The role of corvid birds in the epidemiology of Brachyspira hyodysenteriae causing swine dysentery in pigs has been questioned. Therefore, we examined crows living close to <i>B. hyodysenteriae</i> positive pigs for the presence of <i>B. hyodysenteriae...

LOW DIVERSITY AMONG BRACHYSPIRA HYODYSENTERIAE ISOLATES IN SWITZERLAND  

Brachyspira (B.) hyodysenteriae infection can cause swine dysentery (SD), increased use of antimicrobials and economic losses. Control and eradication of SD rely on a better understanding of sources, transmission and spread. We analysed B. hyodysenteriae...
