Antimicrobial susceptibility of Finnish Brachyspira pilosicoli isolates

Brachyspira pilosicoli is the etiologic agent of porcine colonic spirochetosis, a diarrheal disease in growing pigs. Colitis associated with Brachyspira pilosicoli is less severe than swine dysentery caused by Brachyspira hyodysenteriae, however, antimicrobial therapy is needed on some farms to treat diarrhea in weaners and in young finishing pigs. According to principles of prudent use of antimicrobials, only effective drugs should be used.

An improved method of Streptococus suis serotyping and vaccine efficacy

Streptococcus suis is a gram positive bacterium that causes arthritis and fatal meningitis in young pigs. Currently, 35 different serotypes have been identified and serotype 2 is most commonly associated with the disease in the U.S. Serotyping results from isolates sent to diagnostic laboratories for testing are often non-typeable or ambiguous using current methods. In the present study, we used next generation sequencing to identify the serotype of several isolates.

Role of T cells in the immune-pathogenesis of porcine contagious pleuropneumonia

Porcine contagious pleuropneumonia caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (APP) remains one of the major causes of poor growth performance in pig herds. After recovering from the acute phase, pigs often become carriers harbouring the pathogen in tonsils, nares and chronic lung lesions. While most of the literature focuses on the role of the humoral response in attenuating the occurrence of acute symptoms, the porcine T-cell response to APP has been poorly characterised so far.
