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)...
