Fusariotoxicosis from barley in British Columbia. I. Natural occurrence and diagnosis. (1/34086)

Clinical sickness was observed in domestic ducks, geese, horses and swine during October 1973. All species showed upper alimentary distress with mortalities occurring in the geese. Barley derived from a common source had been fed. Examination of the barley revealed invasion by Fusarium spp and detection of a high level of dermatitic fusariotoxins.  (+info)

Lead and mercury residues in kidney and liver of Canadian slaughter animals. (2/34086)

Liver and kidney samples were collected from Canadian slaughter animals during the winter of 1973-1974. A total of 256 samples were analyzed for lead. Mean lead levels of 1.02 ppm in poultry liver, 1.04 ppm in bovine liver, 1.02 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.73 ppm in pork liver and 0.85 ppm in pork kidney were found. A total of 265 samples were analyzed for mercury. Mean mercury levels of 0.003 ppm in poultry liver, 0.007 ppm in bovine liver, 0.008 ppm in bovine kidney, 0.001 ppm in pork liver and 0.013 ppm in pork kidney were found. All levels detected were below the Canadian official tolerance of 2 ppm for lead and administrative tolerance of 0.5 ppm for mercury.  (+info)

Infleuce of dietary levels of vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters in pigs. (3/34086)

Eighteen barrows approximately three weeks of age were used in a 3 X 3 factorial arrangement to investigate the effect of level of supplemental vitamin E and selenium on tissue and blood parameters. Tissue selenium concentrations increased in a quadratic manner with increased selenium intake with kidney tissue containing considerably greater concentrations than liver, heart or muscle. Supplementation of the diet caused a three-fold increase in serum selenium within the first week with a slight tendency to further increases in subsequent weeks. Serum vitamin E of unsupplemented pigs declined by fifty percent during the experiment, whereas supplemental vitamin E resulted in increased serum vitamin E. There was a considerable viration in percent peroxide hemolysis. Correlation of -0.63 between percent peroxide hemolysis and vitamin E intake and -0.85 between percent peroxide hemolysis and serum vitamin E were observed.  (+info)

Epidemiological field studies of animal populations. (4/34086)

Numerous survey designs have been developed for epidemiological field studies of human populations, most of which are also applicable to field studies of animal poulations. Each design has its own advantages and disadvantages. The final design selected for a particular study depends upon such factors as the overall purpose of the study, the geographic dimensions of the study area, the diseases incidence or prevalence and species to be studied as well as the planned use for the data. Population dynamics including the distribution and density of the species to be studied are factors that should also be considered in the initial design of a study. A surveillance system, using mailed questionnaire data and a subsequent survey using direct interviews of validate the data in a statewide study of swine birth defects are used to illustrate some of the techniques that can be applied to domestic animal populations in a fairly large geographic area. The type of data collected, its use and its limitations are also considered.  (+info)

Some leptospira agglutinins detected in domestic animals in British Columbia. (5/34086)

During a period of six years 7,555 bovine sera, 421 canine sera, 251 porcine sera and 135 equine sera were tested for agglutinins to Leptospira interrogans serotypes canicola, grippotyphosa, hardjo, icterohemorrhagiae, pomona and sejroe. The bovine sera reacted predominantly with hardjo and/or sejroe at a rate of 15% compared to 3.5% with pomona. Breeding or abortion problems were associated with pomona but not with sejroe/hardjo agglutinins. The canine sera reacted to canicola (9.9%y and icterohemorrhagiae (5.4%), tcted predominantly with canicola (8.9%) and icterohemorrhagiae (8.1%).  (+info)

Values of three coagulation screening tests of precolostral calves. (6/34086)

Prothrombin times, partial thromboplastin times and platelet counts were performed to determine normal values and to screen for coagulation defects of precolostral calves. The precolostral calves were in two groups: one group of a few calves was tested two years before the second larger group. The results for both groups were similar. The tests were performed on postcolostral calves and on mature cows to compare their values with those of precolostral calves. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the first group were 18.8 seconds and 54.8 seconds respectively. The mean values of prothrombin times and partial thromboplastin times of precolostral calves in the second group were 18.8 seconds and 50.8 seconds respectively. The mean platelet count was 422,400/cmm for the first group and 482,800/cmm for the second group.  (+info)

The determination of hemoglobin and myoglogin residues as a parameter for testing heat exposure in back bacon. (7/34086)

The use of an extraction of the heme pigments hemoglobin and myoglobin as a test for the heat exposure of back bacon was investigated by treating back bacon at varying temperatures of 50-70 degrees C and times of two to 180 minutes and observing the effect on the absorbance of heme pigment residue after nitrite oxidation. Absorbance at 409 nm was used in place of the more usual 540 nm to provide greater sensitivity in the detection of heme. A decrease in residual heme pigments was time-dependent, particularly at lower temperatures. In view of this factor and the complex nature of the heat exposure of a large block of back bacon, the application of this test would require a calibration of each process. Alternatively, limits to the amounts of heme pigment residue could be set. The heme pigment test is useful in its simplicity and overcomes difficulties associated with the coagulation and enzyme tests.  (+info)

Quantitative assessment of the morphology of the pig's head used as a model in surgical experimentation. Part 1: Methods of Measurements. (8/34086)

Thirty-two surface measurements were described for assessment of the effect of complex surgical operations on the skeleton of the face in pigs. The methods of measurements imitate those of anthropometry. The surface measurements can complement cephalometry with data about the changes in the soft tissue and thus improve the documentation of the effect of surgery. This paper can help in the evaluation of complicated osteotomy procedures using the pig as the animal model, for facial reconstruction research in humans.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - The use of DNA fingerprinting to assess monozygotic twinning in Meishan and Landrace x Large White pigs. AU - Ashworth, C J AU - Ross, Alexander. AU - Barrett, Perry. PY - 1998. Y1 - 1998. N2 - The extent of embryo mortality is usually estimated by the difference between the numbers of corpora lutea and embryos in the same animal, which assumes that each corpora lutea represents one potential embryo. Recent observations from the authors laboratory reveal situations in which the number of embryos exceeds the number of corpora lutea, implicating the presence of identical twins. The objective of the present study was to establish DNA fingerprinting techniques to investigate the prevalence of monozygotic twinning in two breeds of pig. DNA fingerprints of every fetus carried by 6 Meishan (MS) and 6 Landrace x Large White (LxLW) gilts on Day 29 +/- 2 of pregnancy were obtained. Five LxLW and 3 MS litters carried no identical fetuses. The remaining gilts carried a pair of fetuses with ...

Environmental temperature influences energy intake utilization and tissue deposition in pig. However, physiological mechanisms involved in muscle metabolic adaptation to cold temperature are unclear. This study aimed at evaluating the effects of a cold temperature applied during the post-weaning (PW) and growing-finishing (GF) periods of pigs on growth performance, body composition and Longissimus muscle (LM) energy metabolism, with emphasis on the AMP-protein kinase (AMPK) pathway involved in homeostasis regulation. A total of 84 Large White x (Large White x Landrace) piglets (castrated males and females) fed ad libitum were submitted to either Cold (C: from 23°C to 15°C) or Thermoneutrality (T: from 28°C to 23°C) temperature during PW. 12 C and 12 T piglets were slaughtered at 25 kg and the remaining piglets were reared at 12°C (CC) or 23°C (TT), up to 115 kg. During PW, cold exposure induced strong responses on growth performance. Despite a higher average feed intake (AFI, + 50 g/d, P|0.01), C
Some important videos that one must watch to understand to remove the misconceptions about swine flu. The videos titled "How I survived swine flu" is the interview of two swine flu survivors. Is is basically a first hand account of two H1N1 survivors. Also Dr. Srinivasan Ramanathan Lilavati Hospital gives tips on choosing the right mask for H1N1 and precautions that we need to take to avoid swine flu. It is important to note that the fatality rate in swine flu is less than 1%. Because these symptoms are not specific to swine flu, a differential diagnosis of probable swine flu requires not only symptoms, but also a high likelihood of swine flu due to the persons recent and past medical history. For example, during the 2009 swine flu outbreak in the United States, the CDC advised physicians to "consider swine influenza infection in the differential diagnosis of patients with acute febrile respiratory illness who have either been in contact with persons with confirmed swine flu, or who were in one ...

APHIS evaluated a range of alternatives for a nationally coordinated feral swine damage management program and selected the Integrated APHIS National Feral Swine Damage Management Program, a nationally coordinated response to reduce and, in some areas, eliminate the risks and damage inflicted by feral swine to agriculture, property, natural and cultural resources, and human health. APHIS serves as the lead federal agency in a cooperative effort with other agency partners, tribes, organizations, and local entities that share a common interest in reducing or eliminating problems caused by feral swine. The program is implemented according to applicable federal, state, tribal and local laws, and in accordance with local management objectives for feral swine. The selected alternative is also the environmentally preferable alternative.. Program activities are implemented in all or most states and territories where feral swine occur. In states where feral swine are an infrequent occurrence or ...
Because these symptoms are not specific to swine flu, a differential diagnosis of probable swine flu requires not only symptoms but also a high likelihood of swine flu due to the persons recent history. For example, during the 2009 swine flu outbreak in the United States, CDC advised physicians to consider swine influenza infection in the differential diagnosis of patients with acute febrile respiratory illness who have either been in contact with persons with confirmed swine flu, or who were in one of the five U.S. states that have reported swine flu cases or in Mexico during the 7 days preceding their illness onset.[diagnosis of confirmed swine flu requires laboratory testing of a respiratory sample (a simple nose and throat swab).. ...
Fetal pigs are unborn pigs used in elementary as well as advanced biology classes as objects for dissection. Pigs, as a mammalian species, provide a good specimen for the study of physiological systems and processes due to the similarities between many pig and human organs. Along with frogs and earthworms, fetal pigs are among the most common animals used in classroom dissection. There are several reasons for this, the main reason being that pigs, like humans, are mammals. Shared traits include common hair, mammary glands, live birth, similar organ systems, metabolic levels, and basic body form. They also allow for the study of fetal circulation, which differs from that of an adult. Secondly, fetal pigs are easy to obtain because they are by-products of the pork industry. Fetal pigs are the unborn piglets of sows that were killed by the meat packing industry. These pigs are not bred and killed for this purpose, but are extracted from the deceased sows uterus. Fetal pigs not used in classroom ...
With more than 26% to 27% of the value of a hog coming from exports, trade was the dominant topic for pork producers this week during the National Pork Producers Council fly-in lobbying push in Washington, D.C. The U.S. remains the worlds largest pork exporter, sending 2.3 million metric tons overseas last year, which equated to about $6 billion in revenue for pork producers.
Animals, housing, and feeding. Thirty-six Large White x Landrace piglets were purchased from a commercial swine herd on the day of weaning at 21 days of age (Day 0). They were transported to Murdoch University, weighed, ear tagged, and allotted in a randomized complete block design to three treatment groups of 12, each of which comprised six males and six females penned separately. The pigs were housed in six adjacent pens in an isolation animal facility. Water and feed were available ad libitum, and each day uneaten feed was removed and fresh feed was supplied. Group food intake, which was the sum of the intakes of both pens in each group, was recorded daily. The diet was a commercial, antimicrobial-free, pelleted weaner diet (19% crude protein). Study design. Beginning on Day 0, the food offered to the piglets of Group 1 was top-dressed with a controlled-release pellet containing 1% of Chemeq polymeric antimicrobial plus 0.1% sucrose. The amount added was such that the piglets were consuming ...
Swine influenza (also swine flu) refers to influenza caused by any strain of the influenza virus endemic in pigs (swine). Strains endemic in swine are called swine influenza virus (SIV).. Swine flu is common in swine and rare in humans. People who work with swine, especially people with intense exposures, are at risk of catching swine influenza if the swine carry a strain able to infect humans. However, these strains rarely are able to pass from human to human. Rarely, SIV mutates into a form able to pass easily from human to human. The strain responsible for the 2009 swine flu outbreak is believed to have undergone such a mutation.This virus is named swine flu because one of its surface proteins is similar to viruses that usually infect pigs however this strain is spreading in people and it is unknown if it infects pigs.. In humans, the symptoms of swine flu are similar to those of influenza and of influenza-like illness in general, namely chills, fever, sore throat, muscle pains, severe ...

Carlsbad-based Life Technologies Corp. has created a USDA-approved, real-time test to detect strains of swine flu. The Swine Influenza Virus testing kit will be sold to veterinary diagnostic labs around the world, the company said, in a statement July 12. Swine flu is a common debilitating condition mostly affecting pigs, causing fever, lethargy, breathing problems and significant weight loss - and resulting in economic loss to swine producers. In rare instances, the virus is transmitted from pigs to humans, with human symptoms similar to the regular seasonal influenza virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, Lifes test, called the VetMAXTM-Gold SIV Detection Kit, is for animal use only. The detection kit can test for various strains of swine flu, including H1N1. Studies have shown that the swine flu H1N1 is common throughout pig populations worldwide, with 25 percent of animals showing antibody evidence of infection, according to the CDC. In the U.S., ...
Swine influenza virus was found to be regularly present in the turbinates, tracheal exudate and lungs of infected swine but not in the spleens, livers, kidneys, mesenteric lymph nodes, colon mucosae, brains or blood. It was present in low concentration in the bronchial lymph nodes of 2 out of 8 animals. This localization of the virus in swine accords with its classification as a pneumotropic virus.. ...
At this time there is no data demonstrating any risk of dogs and cats contracting this strain of the virus," says Dr. Louise Murray, the Director of Medicine at the ASPCAs Bergh Memorial Hospital in New York City. "However, owners of pet pigs, as well as farmers, should monitor their animals health more closely during this outbreak.". Anyone with a Vietnamese potbellied-pig, an African pygmy, or other pet pigs should be aware that there are Influenza type A vaccines available and recommended for healthy swine.. The ASPCA also recommends keeping pet pigs and swine farms isolated from any public exposure that might put them at risk for illness. The American Association of Swine Veterinarians (I had no idea there was such a group until today) suggests that visitors should not be allowed into swine production units, and for humans to avoid unnecessary contact with pigs. Because there are many causes of illness in pigs, if your pet pig is unwell, it is recommended to consult with your ...
Swine influenza virus (SIV) is a respiratory disease that affects pigs of all ages. The clinical signs include a deep-chested barking cough, sneezing, labored breathing, anorexia, lethargy, fever, a serous nasal discharge, and conjuctivitis.1 Recovery is rapid. Reproductive problems, such as higher return-to-estrus rates, have been reported during severe outbreaks of SIV, especially when the clinical signs are at their most severe in the adult population.1 Individual pigs that have secondary infections will show more severe signs.1,2-5 It may take several days to weeks for the syndrome to spread and then resolve within a swine unit.. Because the period during which the virus can be isolated is quite short, SIV can be difficult to diagnose. Swine influenza virus is seldom detected on nasal swabs beyond 10 days postinfection, and can be isolated from lung tissue for an even more limited period. The best time to isolate SIV is when the animal is febrile, although this period is also short. ...
Swine influenza is known to be caused by influenza A subtypes H1N1,[8] H1N2,[8] H2N3,[9] H3N1,[10] and H3N2.[8] In pigs, three influenza A virus subtypes (H1N1, H1N2, and H3N2) are the most common strains worldwide.[11] In the United States, the H1N1 subtype was exclusively prevalent among swine populations before 1998; however, since late August 1998, H3N2 subtypes have been isolated from pigs. As of 2004, H3N2 virus isolates in US swine and turkey stocks were triple reassortants, containing genes from human (HA, NA, and PB1), swine (NS, NP, and M), and avian (PB2 and PA) lineages ...
Definition of Fetal Pig Dissection in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Fetal Pig Dissection? Meaning of Fetal Pig Dissection as a legal term. What does Fetal Pig Dissection mean in law?
Its named for a virus that pigs can affect pigs. People usually do not get swine flu, but human infections can and do happen. The virus is contagious and can spread from human to human. Symptoms of swine flu in people are similar to the symptoms of regular human flu and include fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue.Swine flu also known as swine influenza, hog flu and pig flu. In 2009 the media labeled as "swine flu" the flu caused by 2009s new strain of swine-origin A/H1N1 pandemic virus just as it had earlier dubbed as "avian flu" flu caused by the recent Asian-linage HPAI (High Pathogenic Avian Influenza) H5N1 strain that is still endemic in many wild bird species in several countries ...
Control of swine influenza by vaccination has become more difficult in recent decades, as the evolution of the virus has resulted in inconsistent responses to traditional vaccines. Standard commercial swine flu vaccines are effective in controlling the infection when the virus strains match enough to have significant cross-protection, and custom (autogenous) vaccines made from the specific viruses isolated are created and used in the more difficult cases.[80][81] Present vaccination strategies for SIV control and prevention in swine farms typically include the use of one of several bivalent SIV vaccines commercially available in the United States. Of the 97 recent H3N2 isolates examined, only 41 isolates had strong serologic cross-reactions with antiserum to three commercial SIV vaccines. Since the protective ability of influenza vaccines depends primarily on the closeness of the match between the vaccine virus and the epidemic virus, the presence of nonreactive H3N2 SIV variants suggests that ...
Boost your immune system with the best immune support supplement available to you.. London July 24 2009. Britain released today that England has 100,000 MORE cases of swine flu this week than they had last week. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) announced that swine flu now has developed another symptom, neurological disorders, especially in children (4 cases in Dallas TX this week). There seems to be a surge of swine flu infections that support a growing concern for a catastrophic world pandemic. The technical definition for pandemic has been reached. There is now the waiting game to determine how man will tame this invisible scourge.. Swine flu Conspiracy?. Swine flu "vaccine manufacturers" will make an estimated one and a half billion dollars from the vaccines and medications that have been ordered by nations all over the world (BUT NOT TAKEN YET). If there is not a "STORY" to keep patients requesting the "swine flu shots and meds", these manufacturers stand to lose ...
We used 66 pregnant sows to compare serum progesterone concentrations following a single injection of either saline or one of two prostaglandin F2a products approved for use in swine. Pregnant sows in a commercial swine farm were assigned to one of the three groups in a completely randomized design balanced across treatment for parity and day of gestation. Each sow received a single intramuscular dose (2 mL) on d 111, 112, or 113 of gestation. Mean serum progesterone concentrations were decreased significantly at 6 and 12 hours after dose administration of both prostaglandin products. However, these effects did not differ. Serum progesterone concentrations did not decrease significantly at any time in the control group. This indicates that regression of corpora lutea was initiated at the same time by both prostaglandin products.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, November 16, 2000
In this report, the global Porcine Serum market is valued at USD XX million in 2016 and is expected to reach USD XX million by the end of 2022, growing at
2015) Nature Communications 6, 6696.. The complex and unresolved evolutionary origins of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic exposed major gaps in our knowledge of the global spatial ecology and evolution of influenza A viruses in swine (swIAVs). By undertaking the most expansive phylogenetic analysis of swIAV sequence data to date, we demonstrate that the global live swine trade strongly predicts the spatial dissemination of swIAVs, with Europe and North America acting as sources of viruses in Asian countries. In contrast, China has the worlds largest swine population but is not a major exporter of live swine, and is not an important source of swIAVs in neighboring Asian countries or globally. A meta-population simulation model incorporating trade data predicts that the global ecology of swIAVs is more complex than previously thought, and the US and Chinas large swine populations are unlikely to be representative of swIAV diversity in their respective geographic regions, requiring independent ...

Swine Flu is caused by influenza type A virus, there are regular outbreaks among herds of pigs, where the disease causes high levels of illness but is rarely fatal. It tends to spread in autumn and winter but can circulate all year round. There are many different types of swine flu and like human flu, the infection is constantly changing. Swine flu does not normally infect humans, although sporadic cases do occur usually in people who have had close contact with pigs. There have also been rare documented cases of humans passing the infection to other humans. Human to human transmission of swine flu thought to spread in the same way as seasonal flu - through coughing and sneezing. In the latest outbreak, in Mexico, it is clear that the disease is being passed from person to person. The outbreak in Mexico seems to involve a new type of swine flu that contains DNA that is typically found in avian and human viruses. The World Health Organisation has confirmed at least some of the cases are caused by ...
Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of feeding different lysine and metabolizable energy (ME) levels to developing gilts on age at puberty and reproductive tract measurements. Crossbred Large White × Landrace gilts (n = 1221) housed in groups from 100 d of age until slaughter (approximately 260 d of age) were randomly allotted to 6 corn-soybean diets formulated to provided 2 standardized ileal digestible lysine levels [100% (HL), 85% (LL)] and 3 ME levels [90% (LME), 100% (MME), 110% (HME)] at 100 d of age. The 100% lysine and 100% ME were based on an informal survey from the U.S. commercial swine industry to obtain average levels that are currently fed to developing gilts. Gilts were weighed and backfat thickness and loin muscle area were recorded at the beginning of the trial and then every 28 d. Starting at 160 d of age, gilts were exposed daily to vasectomized boars and observed for behavioral estrus. At slaughtered, their ...
Instead of fearing and avoiding the present contagion humorously named the swine flu, there is an urgent need to find positive uses for the Swine Flu. While some may dismiss this idea off-handedly, swiftly concluding that there is no practical use for an evolved virulent virus that attacks mankind sickening billions of persons and causing the weak to perish, still others may find that every scourge has a benefit albeit difficult to conceive. Thus the List of Practical Uses for the Swine Flu becomes timely and essential, since the swine flu may evolve into something else as quickly as it arrived, before practical uses for the flu are identified and implemented.. The List of Practical Uses for the Swine Flu is the first step in the scientific reduction to useful products. While many scientists are very able in solving problems by delving deeply into a problem they are often deficient in expansive thinking.. For example, perhaps the list could alert scientists that they could use its virulence as a ...

On April 25, 2009, Wayne Madsen (investigative journalist) reported claims that some UN World Health Organization officials and scientists believed the 2009 new H1N1 strain of swine flu virus appeared to be the product of gene splicing, as opposed natural processes, citing as evidence the presence of genetic material from strains not occurring in pigs (such as bird flu and different forms of human flu), the lack of transmission from pigs to humans and the flu disproportionately affecting young adults when compared to other strains of flu.. The virus was later declared by the CDC to be a combination of four different viruses: North American swine flu, North American avian flu, human H1N1 flu and a swine flu strain found in Asia and Europe.. New Scientist magazine cited the example of a H1N2 influenza pandemic in the 1990s that only affected pigs in the United Kingdom. This subtype of the H1N2 was also a reassortment (mix) of swine, human and avian strains.. Please post your comments and thoughts ...
American officials confirmed Wednesday the first swine flu death in the U.S., as Canada stepped up its screening measures at airports to check passengers returning from Mexico for symptoms of the virus has now infected 13 Canadians in four different provinces.. [efoods]A 23-month-old child in Texas has died from the new H1N1 swine flu, becoming the first death from swine flu reported outside Mexico, the country hardest hit by the influenza outbreak. A health official said the baby was Mexican and was in the United States for medical treatment.. Richard Besser, acting head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he expected more bad news even though most of the 65 U.S. cases of swine flu were mild..

Emphasis in Sweden has not been for the extreme length and bacon producing characteristics of the original stock, resulting in a more moderate type strain. Greater emphasis has been put on soundness of feet and legs, strength of top and ability to walk. At the same time, Swedish breeders have also attempted to retain a satisfactory rate of gain and feed conversion, proliticacy, and the mothering ability for which Landrace have become so well known. In recent years, Swedish Landrace have attracted attention in the United States and other nations. Especially where more emphasis is placed on fresh pork and other manufactured products besides bacon. Infusions of the Swedish strain have been valued in American Landrace. They have provided a broadening of the genetic base and a correction of characteristics that were regarded as shortcomings by American Landrace breeders. There have also been exportations to other countries ...
Pig production farms rear pigs for fattening piggeries. On these farms, sows are divided into small groups, and each group of sows is inseminated within a few days. The sows are pregnant for three months, three weeks and three days, after which they farrow - that is, give birth to piglets. They go through the gestation period at their own rhythm in a sheltered area. They have space to move freely.. One litter usually contains 10-12 piglets. The farrowing days are the busiest working days at the piggery as the sows are constantly monitored and, if necessary, assisted when farrowing. Each sow has slightly more than two litters per year on average. The best sows farrow more than ten times in their lives, although sows normally only farrow 3-5 times.. The sows take care of their piglets and suckle them for four weeks. The milk available during this period is the most important source of nutrition for the piglets, but they are also gradually introduced to animal feed to enable their digestive systems ...

A study conducted in 2011, and published in the journal Nature, has managed to establish the evolutionary origin of the flu strain of swine origin (S-OIV).[55]. The phylogenetic origin of the flu virus that caused the 2009 pandemics can be traced before 1918. Around 1918, the ancestral virus, of avian origin, crossed the species boundaries and infected humans as human H1N1. The same phenomenon took place soon after in America, where the human virus was infecting pigs; it lead the emergence of the H1N1 swine strain, which later became the classic swine flu.. The new human H1N1 flu strain of avian origin kept transmitting among human populations until around 1957, when there was a co-infection between this strain and the avian H1N1 in humans. A reassortment event lead to the development of a new strain (H2N2). From this point onwards, no outbreaks of H1N1 were reported in humans until around 1976.. New events of reassortment were not reported until 1968, when the avian strain H1N1 infected humans ...

Some years ago, researchers at EpiVax developed a tool to map and predict T cell epitopes in pigs. Similarly to EpiMatrix, this tool was based on the pocket profile method. The team developed a class II prediction matrix for a specific swine allele. Using a similar approach, we overcome a lack of T cell epitope data to construct swine epitope predictors by systematically leveraging available human information. Applying the pocket profile method, we use sequence and structural similarities in the binding pockets of human and swine major histocompatibility complex proteins to infer Swine Leukocyte Antigen (SLA) peptide binding preferences. We have developed and validated in silico, predictions tool for for three SLA class I alleles (SLA-1*0401, 2*0401 and 3*0401) and one class II allele (SLA-DRB1*0201). We have recently expanded the set of alleles to include commonly expressed class I and II swine alleles. We are using PigMatrix to screen swine viruses such as influenza, porcine reproductive and ...

27,000 swine flu bonus for GPs (who already earn 107,000). 30th July 2009 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1203126/27-000-swine-flu-bonus-GPs-earn-107-000.html (DailyMail) Family doctors could see their salaries soar by 27,000 once a swine flu vaccination programme is in place, the Daily Mail can reveal.. Yesterday they were trying to thrash out a deal which could see GPs paid 7.51 for every jab they give to patients.. They are also negotiating with ministers over their performance-related pay.. They want assurances they will not miss out on bonuses even if they have to cancel routine check-ups due to swine flu pressures which has already started happening.. Every swine flu patient GPs inoculate will need two doses of the vaccine. With the average GP having 1,800 patients, that means a salary boost of just over 27,000.. This figure would give doctors a pay rise some 25 per cent above their usual salary of 107,000.. There are 33,000 GPs in the country and the vaccination programme will ...

Like a lot of food-obsessed people, I love pork. The chef David Chang, whose Manhattan restaurant Momofuku is practically a porcine temple, once declared the pig a "mystical, magical animal." In addition to being delicious, pigs are profoundly smart and social creatures that can even be taught to play simple video games with their snouts. (The jurys out on whether doing so lowers their IQs.). Yet despite pigs many lovable qualities, of all the billions of beasts confined in our meat factories, the most miserable may be the 5.9 million sows that churn out the piglets that grow into chops, bacon, and ham.. Throughout their four-month pregnancies, many of these sows live in cages just large enough to contain their bodies. As the sows grow bigger, the tight confinement means they can lie face down but cant flop over onto their sides. The floors under these "gestation crates" are slotted so that urine and feces can slip through into vast cesspits. Immobilized above their own waste, the sows are ...
Aim: This study was conducted to understand whether serum level of the steroid and metabolic hormones may be indicative of their level in ovarian follicular fluid (FF) in porcine, and its influence on fertility. Materials and Methods: Ovaries from pigs (n=32) of two genetic groups, namely, native (Ghungroo; n=16) and crossbred (Hampshire Ghungroo; n=16) were collected. Both the genetic groups comprised gilts (n=8) and sows (n=8), and sows were in luteal phase of estrus cycle. FF was aspirated from small, medium and large follicles, and centrifuged for the collection of supernatant for further analysis. Blood samples were collected from the same animals, and serum was separated. Hormones, namely, cortisol, T3, T4 and testosterone were estimated by radioimmunoassay. Two-way ANOVA was used for analysis of data considering genetic background (native or crossbred), stage of reproductive life (gilt or sow), and source of sample (serum or FF) as fixed effects. Results: It was observed that all the ...
The swine flu outbreak in Mexico is caused by a deadly new strain, or variant, of a particular strain of influenza virus that is naturally occurring among pigs. This strain mutated over time and jumped from pigs to humans. It is now transferred easily from human to human through coughing, sneezing, touching and through contact with the nasal and oral mucosa.. Swine flu transmission cannot occur through eating pork. There is no known cure for a virus other than a vaccine, which is usually made from a part of the virus itself. There is no vaccine for swine flu, and antibiotics are ineffective against a virus. ...
By IQAir Air Purifier infection potential Heinsberg lower, August 11, 2009 since Monday, the new vaccine against swine flu at the Hamburger is tested Bernhard-Nocht-Institute. Several hundred volunteers had advertised for this purpose. Professor Roy Taylor understands that this is vital information. The user will be vaccinated twice within three weeks against influenza. 45 days later, doctors take blood away from them and investigate whether antibodies to the H1N1 virus have formed. Only in the autumn test results should exist, which are crucial if the vaccine is approved. Nothing to chance left to bend forward is the best self defense, the fact is that there is currently no vaccine against swine flu for people. But effectively can reduce the risk of infection with the swine flu virus, the rapid implementation of appropriate prophylactic measures is advisable. Measures for the direct neutralization of the pathogen - may well offer the best infection protection, for example, by reducing the ...

I like to write articles from personal experience that make people laugh. So when my son got swine flu this past week, I was thinking to myself, what could I write about swine flu that is funny. The conclusion I came to is that there is nothing really funny about swine flu.. While my son was achy and feverish and coughing, it was all I could do to take care of him for four days. My wife was in China on business at the time, and I had blissfully forgotten how hard it is to take care of someone when they are sick. They cant do anything for themselves. You have to beg them to take fluids. They have to be reminded to take medications and you have to practically put them in their mouth.. In my sons case, for some reason, he never lost his appetite, so I was always trying to think of creative things he would like to eat while suffering from the flu. And they had to be gluten- and dairy-free, as he is newly diagnosed as having allergies. That kept me quite busy.. I didnt actually get him tested, ...

To understand how this happens, you have to compare two farms. My grandparents had a pig farm in the Swiss mountains, with around twenty swine at any one time. What happened there if, in the bowels of one of their pigs, a virus mutated and took on a deadlier form? At every stage, the virus would meet stiff resistance from the pigs immune systems. They were living in fresh air, on the diet they evolved with, and without stress - so they had a robust ability to fight back. If the virus did take hold, it would travel only as far as the sick hog could walk. So if the virus would then have around twenty other pigs to spread and mutate in - before it would hit the end of its own evolutionary path, and die off.. If it was a really lucky, plucky virus, it might make it to market - where it would come up against more healthy pigs living in small herds. It has little opportunity to fan out across a large population of pigs or evolve a strain that could be transmitted to humans.. Now compare this to what ...

ADVANCES IN THE MANIPULATION OF PIG GROWTH INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PORCINE GROWTH HORMONE ADMINISTRATION AND DIETARY PROTEIN R. G. CAMPBELL, R. J. JOHNSON, R. H. KING AND M. R. TAVERNER SUMMARY Two experiments involving a total of 132 entire male pigs were conducted to investigate the interrelationships between exogenous porcine growth hormone (pGH) administration (0 and 0.09mg recombinant pGH/kg/d) and dietary ideal protein levels ranging from 83 to 238 and 70 to 238g/kg on the performance and carcass composition of pigs growing from 30 to 60kg (Experiment 1) and 60 to 90kg (Experiment 2) respectively. Growth rate and feed:gain improved with increasing dietary ideal protein up to approximately 173 and 137g/kg in experiments 1 and 2 respectively and were enhanced by pGH administration in pigs offered the higher protein diets but unaffected or slightly depressed by pGH administration to pigs given the two lowest protein diets in each experiment. Protein deposition and plasma Insulin like growth ...
Objective The purpose of this study is to use porcine small intestinal submucosa (PSIS) as a corneal graft in 10 cases of staphyloma in dogs. Materials & Methods Corneal grafts using porcine small intestinal submucosa (PSIS) were performed in 10 dogs with staphyloma. After general anesthesia and aseptic preparation, nonviable tissue was removed from the recipient staphyloma bed. The iris was pushed back into the anterior chamber before carefully detached from the corneal wound. The PSIS graft sheet was rehydrated in lactate Ringers solution for 5 minutes prior to the placement on to the corneal lesion, and interruptedly sutured to the cornea with 8/10 polyglactin. The third eyelid was sutured on to the palpebral conjunctiva with simple Mattress using 6/0 silk for 14 days. Result Within 7 weeks, all dogs returned to normal vision with pupillary light and menace reflexes. Minimal anterior synechia and scar in accordance with the size of prior corneal lesion were present. Conclusion PSIS is ...
Forty-eight feeder pigs were used in an experiment to determine Virginiamycins effectiveness in preventing swine dysentery. Thirteen of 24 controls and one of 24 that received the antibiotic at either 25 or 50 grams per ton of feed died of swine dysentery or complications. Feed conversion ratio was markedly improved by the antibiotic. Virginiamycin was judged effective in preventing clinical cases of swine dysentery, but it has not been cleared for use in swine. Swine dysentery, also known as bloody dysentery, vibrionic dysentery, bloody scours, or black scours, is a infectious, enteric disease of swine. It is serious in many areas of the Midwest and is assumed to be present wherever swine are raised in the United States. For years the etiology of the condition was thought to be Vibrio coli; however, recent work has indicated Treponema hyodysenterrae-instead ...

Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2) is the primary cause of post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome, in which it stimulates a strong IL-8 response that is associated with chronic inflammation as well as lesions in the lymphoid organs. However, the mechanism underlying PCV2-induced IL-8 production is still unclear. In the present study, we demonstrated that increased IL-8 expression during PCV2 infection depends on Toll-like receptor (TLR2), but not TLR4 or TLR9 signalling pathways in porcine alveolar macrophages. Moreover, we found that impairment of the MyD88/NF-κB signalling pathway by MyD88 knockdown or NF-κB inhibitors markedly decreased PCV2-induced IL-8 secretion. These results suggest that PCV2 induces IL-8 secretion via the TLR2/MyD88/NF-κB signalling pathway. Therefore, it is important to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of the PCV2-induced inflammatory response.
Microarray technology can be useful for pathogen detection as it allows simultaneous interrogation of the presence or absence of a large number of genetic signatures. However, most microarray assays are labour-intensive and time-consuming to perform. This study describes the development and initial evaluation of a multiplex reverse transcription (RT)-PCR and novel accompanying automated electronic microarray assay for simultaneous detection and differentiation of seven important viruses that affect swine (foot-and-mouth disease virus [FMDV], swine vesicular disease virus [SVDV], vesicular exanthema of swine virus [VESV], African swine fever virus [ASFV], classical swine fever virus [CSFV], porcine respiratory and reproductive syndrome virus [PRRSV] and porcine circovirus type 2 [PCV2 ...
Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus: current insights Chaochao Lv,1,* Yan Xiao,1,* Xiangdong Li,1 Kegong Tian,1,2 1National Research Center for Veterinary Medicine, Luoyang, People's Republic of China; 2College of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, Henan Agricultural University, Zhengzhou, People's Republic of China *These authors contributed equally to this review Abstract: Porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), an enveloped, single-stranded, positive-sense RNA virus belonging to the genus Alphacoronavirus in the family Coronaviridae, can infect pigs of all ages and causes acute and watery diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and high mortality in neonatal piglets. This disease was first observed in England in 1971 and was subsequently reported in many swine-producing countries in Europe and Asia. In contrast to the situation in Europe, the disease has remained a major cause of diarrhea outbreaks on swine farms in Asia. Since late 2010, severe porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) epizootics caused
Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2), Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and Lawsonia intracellularis are economically important pathogens in modern pig breeding and rearing, worldwide. PCV2 infection can be associated with a wide range of diseases, including post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS), abortion and reproductive failure, the porcine respiratory disease complex (PRDC) and porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS) (Allan and Ellis 2000). Porcine proliferative enteropathy, commonly referred to as ileitis, caused by L intracellularis, is a common and widespread intestinal infection in pigs. In its acute form, it can result in mortality in finishing pigs and young breeding stock, and in its chronic form, depression and unevenness of growth in growers and finishers (Lawson and Gebhart 2000). M hyopneumoniae is recognised as the causative agent of porcine enzootic pneumonia, a mild, chronic pneumonia commonly complicated by opportunistic infections with other bacteria (Maes and ...
During the past decade, African swine fever (ASF) has spread from the Caucasus region to eastern European Union countries affecting domestic pig and wild boar populations. In order to avert ASF spread, mitigation measures targeting both populations have been established. However, despite these efforts, ASF has been reported in thirteen different countries (Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Moldova, Czech Republic, and Romania). In the absence of an effective vaccine or treatment to ASF, introduction and spread of ASF onto domestic pig farms can only be prevented by strict compliance to control measures. This study systematically reviewed available measures to prevent the spread of ASF in the EU domestic pig sector distinguishing between commercial, non-commercial, and outdoor farms. The search was performed in PubMed and using a common browser. A total of 52 documents were selected for the final review process, which included

The river rises in the Forest of Bowland in central Lancashire, as two distinct tributaries, the Tarnbrook Wyre and the Marshaw Wyre, whose confluence is near the village of Abbeystead. In 1984 a pumping station, built just below the confluence as part of a water transfer scheme in the 1980s, was the location of the Abbeystead disaster, an explosion in which 16 people were killed and a further 22 were injured. From Abbeystead, the river flows south through Dolphinholme to Garstang, where the Lancaster Canal crosses on a small aqueduct. One mile south, at Catterall, it meets its first major tributary, the River Calder. The river then turns westwards, flowing through St Michael's On Wyre where it is joined by its second major tributary, the River Brock. It becomes tidal below the weir at St Michael's. It is crossed by a toll bridge (normal fee is 50 pence) at Cartford, between Little Eccleston and Out Rawcliffe. A former toll bridge, Shard Bridge, close to Poulton-le-Fylde, has been rebuilt and is ...
