Comparison of metabolic adaptation and biofilm formation of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae field isolates from the upper and lower respiratory tract

Most outbreaks of porcine pleuropneumonia in swine populations are triggered by additional abiotic or biotic factors in already colonized pigs. It can be hypothesized, that most of the older pigs carry the pathogen in their tonsils, at which stressors...

Identification of ileal malabsorption using concentrations of serum homocysteine in pigs with Lawsonia intracellularis-infection

About 96% of the herds worldwide are infected with Lawsonia intracellularis and resulting lesions originating from the ileum. The majority of vitamin B12 is absorbed at the ileum and a lack on the cellular level leads to increased serum homocysteine (HCY)...
