Fusariotoxicosis from barley in British Columbia. I. Natural occurrence and diagnosis. (1/3381)

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)

Epidemiological field studies of animal populations. (2/3381)

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)

Antimicrobial drug use and related management practices among Ontario swine producers. (3/3381)

A mail survey of swine producers in Ontario was undertaken during 1991 to describe the types, frequency, and motives for antimicrobial use. Two hundred operations that marketed fewer than 350 hogs per year, and 800 that marketed more than 350 per year were sent questionnaires, 63% of which were completed and returned. Most operations (86%) added antimicrobials to starter (weanling pig) rations, while fewer (29%) added these drugs to finisher pig rations. The most commonly used antimicrobials were tylosin, carbadox, and furazolidone in weanling pigs, and tylosin, lincomycin, and tetracycline in finishers. Water medication of grower-finisher pigs was practised on 25% of farms; 80% of farms had injected at least some grower-finisher pigs with antimicrobials in the 12 mo preceding the survey. Approximately 20% of operations that added antimicrobials to finisher rations did so for growth promotion purposes only, while others used them for disease treatment, prevention, control, or a combination of reasons. Among those not using antimicrobials in finisher rations, 83% did not believe they were necessary and 37% were concerned about the potential for residues in marketed hogs.  (+info)

The effect of cyclopiazonic acid on the development of pale, soft, and exudative pork from pigs of defined malignant hyperthermia genotype. (4/3381)

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) and the mycotoxin cyclopiazonic acid (CPA) are each associated with abnormal calcium homeostasis in skeletal muscle, a key underlying factor in the development of pale, soft, and exudative (PSE) pork. To determine whether the natural presence of CPA in livestock feed ingredients contributes to the varying incidence of PSE in the pork industry, various levels of CPA (.1 to 50 mg/kg of diet) were included in the diets of market weight hogs (n = 52) of defined malignant hyperthermia genotype (NN = normal, Nn = a MH carrier, and nn = MH-positive). Animals with two copies of the MH mutation (nn) displayed improved live animal performance compared with NN and Nn animals (increased feed intake, average daily gain, and feed efficiency) but yielded lower quality loin chops as indicated by lower 45-min pH (P<.01), higher Commission Internationale de l'Eclairage (CIE) L* color coordinate values (P<.05), and higher drip losses (P<.01). The effects of CPA varied. In the first feeding trial, conducted under normal outside temperatures (2 degrees C), CPA had no effect (P> .2) on either live animal performance or meat quality. During the second trial, conducted under extreme outside temperatures (-18 degrees C), CPA-dependent reductions (P<.05) in feed intake, average daily gain, and 45-min pH in nn hogs support the possibility of interactions between malignant hyperthermia and dietary CPA on skeletal muscle calcium homeostasis and the development of PSE pork. These results suggest that this interaction may require stressful environmental conditions or the ingestion of CPA doses much higher than occur under natural conditions.  (+info)

Contributory and exacerbating roles of gaseous ammonia and organic dust in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis. (5/3381)

Pigs reared commercially indoors are exposed to air heavily contaminated with particulate and gaseous pollutants. Epidemiological surveys have shown an association between the levels of these pollutants and the severity of lesions associated with the upper respiratory tract disease of swine atrophic rhinitis. This study investigated the role of aerial pollutants in the etiology of atrophic rhinitis induced by Pasteurella multocida. Forty, 1-week-old Large White piglets were weaned and divided into eight groups designated A to H. The groups were housed in Rochester exposure chambers and continuously exposed to the following pollutants: ovalbumin (groups A and B), ammonia (groups C and D), ovalbumin plus ammonia (groups E and F), and unpolluted air (groups G and H). The concentrations of pollutants used were 20 mg m-3 total mass and 5 mg m-3 respirable mass for ovalbumin dust and 50 ppm for ammonia. One week after exposure commenced, the pigs in groups A, C, E, and G were infected with P. multocida type D by intranasal inoculation. After 4 weeks of exposure to pollutants, the pigs were killed and the extent of turbinate atrophy was assessed with a morphometric index (MI). Control pigs kept in clean air and not inoculated with P. multocida (group H) had normal turbinate morphology with a mean MI of 41.12% (standard deviation [SD], +/- 1. 59%). In contrast, exposure to pollutants in the absence of P. multocida (groups B, D, and F) induced mild turbinate atrophy with mean MIs of 49.65% (SD, +/-1.96%), 51.04% (SD, +/-2.06%), and 49.88% (SD, +/-3.51%), respectively. A similar level of atrophy was also evoked by inoculation with P. multocida in the absence of pollutants (group G), giving a mean MI of 50.77% (SD, +/-2.07%). However, when P. multocida inoculation was combined with pollutant exposure (groups A, C, and E) moderate to severe turbinate atrophy occurred with mean MIs of 64.93% (SD, +/-4.64%), 59.18% (SD, +/-2.79%), and 73.30% (SD, +/-3.19%), respectively. The severity of atrophy was greatest in pigs exposed simultaneously to dust and ammonia. At the end of the exposure period, higher numbers of P. multocida bacteria were isolated from the tonsils than from the nasal membrane, per gram of tissue. The severity of turbinate atrophy in inoculated pigs was proportional to the number of P. multocida bacteria isolated from tonsils (r2 = 0.909, P < 0.05) and nasal membrane (r2 = 0.628, P < 0.05). These findings indicate that aerial pollutants contribute to the severity of lesions associated with atrophic rhinitis by facilitating colonization of the pig's upper respiratory tract by P. multocida and also by directly evoking mild atrophy.  (+info)

Congenital transmission of Schistosoma japonicum in pigs. (6/3381)

Congenital transmission of Schistosoma japonicum in pigs was investigated by experimentally infecting sows at four weeks gestation (n = 3), 10 weeks gestation (n = 3), or a few weeks prior to insemination (n = 2). None of the piglets born to sows infected prior to insemination or in early pregnancy were found to be infected. However, all of the piglets (n = 26) born to sows infected at 10 weeks gestation were found to harbor schistosomes with S. japonicum eggs recovered from both their feces and livers. The findings show that congenital S. japonicum infection of pigs can occur if sows are infected during mid-to-late pregnancy and may have important implications not only for pigs but also for other mammalian hosts of schistosomes, including humans.  (+info)

Pulmonary lesions in guinea pigs experimentally infected with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (A.p.) serovar 1. (7/3381)

Pathological studies were carried out on the lungs of guinea pigs intratracheally inoculated with 4.6 x 10(6-8) colony forming units (CFU)/head of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae serovar 1. All animals in the highest dose group died within 24 hr post inoculation (hpi) and showed pulmonary lesions being hemorrhagic in nature while all animals in the lowest dose group were killed as scheduled at 11 days post inoculation (dpi) and showed only hyperplasia of peribronchial lymphoid tissues. In the middle dose group, two died within 24 hpi, two died at 9 dpi, and the remaining one was killed at 11 dpi. Two guinea pigs which died at 9 dpi showed fibrinonecrotic pleuropneumonia which is the most characteristic acute pulmonary lesion in swine, and has not yet been reproduced in laboratory animals up to the present time. This suggests that guinea pigs may be a useful laboratory animal for studying the pathogenesis of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae infection in swine.  (+info)

Weaning anorexia may contribute to local inflammation in the piglet small intestine. (8/3381)

Compromising alterations in villus-crypt structure are common in pigs postweaning. Possible contributions of local inflammatory reactions to villus-crypt alterations during the weaning transition have not been described. This study evaluated local inflammatory responses and their relationship with morphological changes in the intestine in 21-d-old pigs (n = 112) killed either at weaning (Day 0) or 0.5, 1, 2, 4 or 7 d after weaning to either milk- or soy-based pelleted diets. Cumulative intake averaged <100 g during the first 2 d postweaning, regardless of diet. During this period of weaning anorexia, inflammatory T-cell numbers and local expression of the matrix metalloproteinase stromelysin increased while jejunal villus height, crypt depth and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I RNA expression decreased. Upon resumption of feed intake by the fourth d postweaning, villus height and crypt depth, CD8(+) T cell numbers, MHC class I RNA expression and local expression of stromelysin returned to Day 0 values. Together the results indicate that inadequate feed intake during the immediate postweaning period may contribute to intestinal inflammation and thereby compromise villus-crypt structure and function.  (+info)

The purpose of the research reported and discussed was to examine the physiological and behavioral thermoregulatory responses of normal, diarrheic and pyrogen-injected piglets aged 12 to 72 hours. The first experiment examined the thermal-environmental preference of diarrheic piglets exposed to a thermocline apparatus for 60 minutes. Diarrheic piglets on average preferred a lower ambient temperature than did control piglets. Furthermore, preference for a lower temperature in the thermocline was demonstrated in 48-hour-old piglets than in piglets aged 12, 24 or 72 hours. Rectal temperature rose with increasing age, while the rectal temperature of sucrose-induced diarrheic piglets was lower than that of control piglets. Rectal temperature increase during thermocline exposure was higher in control piglets than in diarrheic piglets. The difference between rectal temperature before thermocline exposure and the temperature preferred by the piglet in the thermocline increased with age. Total body-water ...

This study has, for the first time in recent years, provided insight into the seroepidemiology of swine influenza in the UK using a large sample set. Over half (52%) of the farms had evidence of ongoing virus circulation or recent virus introduction, with seropositivity in growing pigs to the H1N2 subtype most commonly identified (45% of all farms). No farms showed evidence of antibody to H3N2 in young pigs, which is consistent with passive surveillance, which has not identified this strain in the UK since 1998. There was strong evidence that farms visited in the summer months had a lower likelihood of seropositivity than those visited at other times. Regarding pig management characteristics, farms with large numbers of finishers per water space had a higher likelihood of positivity than those with fewer pigs per water space; farms containing pigs kept indoors had a higher likelihood of seropositivity than those which did not; and farms containing pigs in straw yards had a lower likelihood of ...
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.. ...

Interest in porcine epidemic diarrhea has grown since the 2013 outbreak in the United States caused major losses, with mortality rates up to 100 % in suckling piglets. In Mexico, an outbreak of porcine epidemic diarrhea, characterized by 100 % mortality in piglets, began in March 2014 in the State of Mexico. The aim of this study was to confirm and identify porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) in samples from piglets with suggestive clinical signs using virological, histological, and molecular techniques. Necropsy was performed on 13 piglets from two litters with initial and advanced clinical signs. Suggestive lesions of acute infection with PEDV were detected in histological sections of the small and large bowels; specifically, multiple virus particles with visible crown-shaped projections were observed using electron microscopy and negative staining. Viral isolation was performed in Vero cells with trypsin. Infection was monitored by observation of cytopathic effect, and titration was ...
The USDA has reported another 296 cases of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv) last week. That brings the number of cases in the last 10 months to 4,757. The disease was first reported in the U.S. hog population in May 2013, with animals in 27 states infected. Unfortunately, each case report can mean just one animal has been sickened, or an entire herd at one farm is sick. The virus, which is deadly for baby pigs, doesnt affect adult hogs. The disease has killed more than 4 million piglets in this country since May 2013. This is most likely going to cause dramatic price increases at the consumer level in the next year, since hog prices are at record highs.The USDAs estimate of hog slaughter on March 21, 2014 was 360,000, down 51,000 head from a week ago. Scientists say that the … [Read more...] ...
In late 2013, outbreaks of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) infection recurred in South Korea. Genetic and phylogenetic analyses showed that isolates from the outbreaks were most closely related to emergent US strains of PEDV. These US strain-like PEDV variants are prevalent in South Korea and responsible for recent outbreaks in the country.

BROOKINGS - South Dakota swine producers and veterinarians have been closely monitoring the developments surrounding Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED) virus infections over the past several months.
Absolute quantification of Lawsonia intracellularis by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is now possible on a routine basis. Poor repeatability of quantification can result in disease status misclassification of individual pigs when a single fecal sample is obtained. The objective of the current study was to investigate overall variation within a day for fecal numbers of L. intracellularis bacteria determined by real-time PCR in growing pigs. From each of 30 pigs with an infection of L. intracellularis, 5 fecal samples were collected within 1 day. A total of 150 fecal samples were obtained and subjected to quantitative PCR (qPCR) testing. Mean fecal dry matter content was 14.3% (standard deviation = 4.5%). Two pigs (6.7%) alternated between being L. intracellularis qPCR positive and negative. For 28 pigs, the excreting levels of L. intracellularis were within the dynamic range of the qPCR assay at all sampling points. For these 28 pigs, the mean excretion level of L. intracellularis was ...
Conventional crossbred pigs from different sources and of different weights were examined for susceptibility to porcine proliferative enteritis. The ileal mucosa of pigs with the disease was emulsified and suspended in Mueller-Hinton broth. Pigs weighing 15, 120 and 200 lb (6.8, 54.5 and 91 kg) (four pigs per group) were stressed and inoculated orally with 80 ml of emulsified proliferative ilea. Severe lesions of porcine proliferative enteritis were detected in three of the four pigs weighing 6.8 kg. Mild lesions were detected in two of the four pigs in each of the other two groups. Gross lesions consisted of reticulation of the serosa, and hyperaemia and thickening of the mucosa with either fibrin or blood clots adherent to the mucosal surface. Inflammation, numerous mitotic figures and epithelial cell proliferation were observed microscopically in the crypts. Silver stained sections revealed numerous comma-shaped organisms in the crypts of infected epithelial cells. Using this method, serial ...

PY - 1992/1/1. Y1 - 1992/1/1. N2 - Streptococcus suis isolates recovered from diseased animals in Quebec and western Canada and from human cases in Europe were tested for their susceptibility to different antimicrobial agents and screened for their plasmid content. Most isolates from Quebec were clindamycin, erythromycin, and tetracycline resistant; animal isolates from western Canada were notably less resistant to clindamycin and erythromycin, whereas human isolates were considerably more susceptible to most antimicrobials tested.1 More than 60% of isolates had plasmids that ranged from 1.5 to 35 kilobases (kb). Of the 7 plasmid profiles found, 2 were particularly frequent in isolates from Quebec and western Canada, suggesting the presence of epidemic strains in the swine population. A particular plasmid ...
Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea sounds incredibly unpleasant. The disease first showed up in the United States last year, and thanks to the cold weather nationwide has showed up in 27 states. What is it, and should humans be worried? Not unless you own any hogs or you have a tight budget for meat for the next year or two.. The disease, PEDv for short, is a virus that sounds a lot like the stomach bugs that we humans get. The trouble is that its incredibly dangerous for piglets, killing up to 80-100% of babies that are infected. Its less deadly for adult pigs, but still pretty deadly. In the last year, PEDv has killed four to five million pigs in less than a year. While it has absolutely no impact on food safety, it has clear implications for the pork industry in terms of supplying pork to consumers, the president of the National Pork Board said in a statement. Experts say that theres no food safety danger-PEDv cant infect humans, Its not at all related to swine flu, which did infect humans ...

Results: In this study we constructed a recombinant baculovirus that was potent to express PEDV-S1 protein; PEDV-S1 protein (S1) which is essential to generate immunogenic VLPs in insect cells. A triplet cassette providing simultaneous and independent expression of S1 gene of PED virus was designed and subjected to synthesis. The cassette was then cloned into pFastBacHTb plasmid and then transformed in to competent Escherichia coli DH10Bac cells and the recombinant bacmids were produced following the homologous Tn7 site-specific transposition. This construction was verified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and then transfected into Sf9 insect cells to package new recombinant baculovirus expressing complex proteins of the interest. Restriction map of pFastBacHTb_PEDV-S1 plasmid confirmed the fidelity of the clone. The PCR carried out on the recombinant bacmids as template indicated that a proper homologous recombination has occurred between pFastBacHTb_PEDV-S1 donor plasmid and the bacmid. ...

In the spring of 2013, a virus that had not been seen before in the United States began spreading across the major swine producing states, causing outbreaks of diarrhea in sows and the death of many baby pigs.Researchers scrambled to identify the virus as Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV), a virus that had been seen only in Asian and Europe. The virus spread quickly over the next two years, resulting in the death of over 8 million pigs. Related viruses, including swine delta corona virus (SDCV) and variants of PEDV, were also discovered during the outbreak and together are referred to as
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. ...
Porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED), which is caused by the porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV), is an acute and highly contagious enteric viral disease in nursing pigs. PED is characterized by vomiting and lethal watery diarrhea; and is a global problem, especially in many swine-producing countries. PED was first reported in feeder pigs and fattening swine in the United Kingdom in 1971; since then, it has emerged in numerous European and Asian countries, resulting in tremendous economic losses to the pork industry worldwide. In 2013, the first PED outbreak was reported in the U.S.; subsequently, the outbreak spread rapidly across the country, and similar outbreaks were also reported in Canada and Mexico. In China, PED outbreaks have occurred infrequently with only sporadic incidents. However, in late 2010, a remarkable increase in PED outbreaks was reported in the pork-producing provinces. In 2014, an outbreak of severe acute diarrhea, with high morbidity and mortality, occurred in sucking ...
The U.S. swine industry needs to evaluate current production practices and production and then decide on what changes must be made to keep up with the times. The swine industry has changed greatly within the past ten years, as our nation has seen the reduction in the number of small family hog farms and the introduction of the corporate swine farm (Thu and Durrenberger, 1998). The current prevailing trend in the United States is toward a downsized agricultural sector that is made up of fewer but larger farms. According to the Trends in Agriculture report the average farm size has increased roughly 31% from 1900 to 1997 while the number of farms in the same period has decreased roughly 34% (NASS,1997). With this overwhelming push toward corporate agricultural production it is essential that the U.S. swine industry begin to identify emerging challenges and issues. According to Plain (2001), there are ten trends that are shaping the swine industry: improved herd performance; fewer and bigger hog ...
The recently emerged highly virulent variants of porcine epidemic and diarrhea virus (PEDV) remain a huge threat to the worldwide swine industry. Here, we describe the development of a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) reverse genetics system for PEDV based on two recent Chinese field isolates, namely CHM2013 and BJ2011C. Phylogenetically, CHM2013 is closely related to the vaccine strain SM98 whereas the isolate BJ2011C belongs to the GIIb group, a cluster that contains many recent pandemic strains. The full-length cDNA clones of the two isolates were constructed into BAC under the control of CMV promoter. The rescued viruses rBJ2011C and rCHM2013 were found to replicate at the kinetics similar to their respective parental viruses in cell culture. When tested in the 2-day-old pig model, rBJ2011C caused severe diarrhea of piglets with extensive damages to the intestinal epithelium, leading to 100% fatality within 48 hours. In contrast, the rCHM2013-inoculated piglets all survived with only very minor
Swine influenza (also swine flu) refers to influenza caused by any strain of the influenza virus that is endemic in pigs (swine). Strains endemic in swine are called swine influenza virus (SIV). Of the three genera of Orthomyxoviridae that are endemic in humans, two are endemic also in swine: Influenzavirus A (common) or Influenzavirus C (rare). Influenzavirus B has not been reported in swine. Within Influenzavirus A and Influenzavirus C, the strains endemic to swine and humans are largely distinct ...

In this thesis, some effects of pseudorabies virus infection on RNA metabolism in BHK-21/C15 cells were examined; in particular the production of 4S RNA and 5S RNA was studied. 1. The concentration of uridine in the medium that allows maximum incorporation of isotopically-labelled uridine into RNA in CI5 cells was determined. 2. A 10% polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis system was calibrated and used to fractionate low molecular weight cytoplasmic RNA, excellent separation between 5S RNA and 4S RNA being obtained. 5. Infection of exponentially-growing cells with pseudorabies virus caused a steady decrease (to 15% of the uninfected level) in incorporation of 3H uridine into RNA by 5 hours after infection. The production of cytoplasmic 28S and 18S RNAs was found to be most strongly inhibited while the production of 4S and 5S RNAs was much less affected; the decrease in synthesis of 4S RNA from either total cytoplasm, cell sap or ribosomes was found to be virtually identical. 4. In some experiments, ...
The goal of this paper is to present the prevalence of major disease causing sertotype 2 of Streptococcus suis in meat ready for retail market shipment. Streptococcus suis is one of the most important pig pathogen causing septicemia, meningitis and other infections in affected animals. In addition this bacteria is an emerging zoonotic pathogen. Human infections are usually after close contact with pigs or their products. A total of 180 samples of raw pork meat (200 gr each) were taken at sloughterhouse. Samples were taken from different parts of pork, already prepared for market: liver, kidneys, shoulder, ham, loin, belly, and head area. Results have shown that 18 isolates were identified as Streptococcus suis serotype 2 from 180 samples examined. The rate of prevalence was 10% exactly. Serotype 2 was the most isolated serotype from fresh pork with 46,1 % of isolated S. suis serotypes followed by serotype 9, 7, 3, 1 and 4. Streptococcus suis serotype 2 had been isolated in all collected samples. ...
Bacon prices are rising as a virus sweeps though the Unites States, killing baby pigs. The Associated Press reported that the Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus, which has never been seen in the United States, has already killed millions of pigs in twenty seven states. The price of bacon has risen nearly thirteen percent over the past year. Farmers are desperately attempting to take measures to curtail the epidemic, ranging from basic hygiene to euthanasia of livestock.. The first case of the virus was reported in May of last year. The cold winter this year did not help matters, as scientist reported the virus thrives in cold weather. Pork is at its highest price its ever. In February the average price of sliced bacon was $5.46, compared to $4.83 in 2013, and $3.62 in 2009. CEO of Tyson Foods Donnie Smith told CNBC that you should expect to see very high prices for your ground beef, your other meat cuts, all the pork cuts will be higher this year.. The National Pork Board released a statement ...
Xenotransplantation using pig cells, tissues and organs may help to overcome the shortage of human tissues and organs for the treatment of tissue and organ failure. Progress in the prevention of immunological rejection using genetically modified pigs and new, more effective, immunosuppression regimens will allow clinical application of xenotransplantation in near future. However, xenotransplantation may be associated with the transmission of potentially zoonotic porcine microorganisms. Until now the only xenotransplantation-associated transmission was the transmission of the porcine cytomegalovirus (PCMV) into non-human primates. PCMV caused a significant reduction of the survival time of the pig transplant. Here the available publications were analysed in order to establish the mechanism how PCMV shortened the survival time of xenotransplants. PCMV is a herpesvirus related to the human cytomegalovirus and the human herpesviruses 6 and 7. These three human herpesviruses can cause serious disease among
5-day outlook: Recent pressure on the cash hog market is likely to continue next week as supplies are building and packers will be working with a shortened slaughter schedule. With nearby hogs trading at a premium to the cash market, the price pullback should extend. If futures drop through the recent lows after this weeks pause, it would signal the market is ready to move the next leg lower.. 30-day outlook: Seasonally, pork demand typically is strong through the holidays. With hog slaughter rising and average hog weights at record highs, there will be increased pressure on demand to chew through those extra supplies.. 90-day outlook: Hog numbers should climb into mid- to late December and then start to gradually ease. If the impact from porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDV) proves to be meaningful, hog numbers could decline more rapidly than anticipated. Thats keeping us out of longer-term hedges at this time.. Hedgers: 100% of expected 4th-qtr. production is hedged in Dec. lean hog futures ...

While porcine epidemic diarrhea virus has caused both physical and emotional damage, the silver lining is that its bringing increased attention to biosecurity importance.
In Stafford County, which has more pigs than people, Scott Pfortmiller recalls the devastating scene that swept through his familys hog operation about four years ago.For several weeks in the spring of 2014, sickness ravaged the farms farrowing barns. Piglets were dying from a very contagious porcine epidemic diarrhea virus that was affecting countless hog producers across America.The farm combatted the virus by feeding diluted fecal matter to their sows and disinfecting barns.
Eight newborn calves were challenged orally with a known enteropathogenic strain of Escherichia coli 0101 K?(A) and two to six hours later each calf was fed a minimum of three pints colostrum. All calves suffered from acute diarrhoea of varying severity within 24 to 48 hours of infection. Immunofluorescent and histological examination of the small intestine demonstrated adherence of the challenge organism to the epithelium and the presence of pathological lesions similar to those seen in colostrum-deprived calves with enteric colibacillosis. It was concluded that in order to be effective prophylactically, colostrum must be fed prior to infection.. ...

Streptococcus (S.) suis is an important porcine pathogen causing meningitis, arthritis and septicemia. As cps7 emerged recently in Germany in association with severe herd problems, the objective of this study was to characterize the geno- and phenotype of invasive cps7 strains. Twenty cps7 strains were isolated from diseased pigs from different farms with S. suis herd problems due to meningitis and other pathologies. Eighteen of the cps7 isolates belonged to sequence type (ST) 29. Most of these cps7 strains secreted a short MRP variant in agreement with a premature stop codon. Expression of Ide Ssuis , an IgM specific protease, was variable in four further investigated cps7 ST29 isolates. Bactericidal assays revealed very high survival factors of these four cps7 ST29 strains in the blood of weaning piglets. In growing piglets, the increase of specific IgM led to efficient killing of cps7 ST29 as shown by addition of the IgM protease Ide Ssuis

Dr Andrew Tucker - Charles Street Veterinary Consultancy. Glassers disease is caused by the infection of pigs with the bacteria Haemophilus parasuis. The bacteria is spread primarily by contact and the aerosol route and has an incubation period of as short as 12 hours. Outbreaks usually occur in piglets 3-6 weeks of age but any age pig can be affected. The bacteria starts by colonising the tracheal mucus and then progresses into causing pneumonia. As the infection progresses further you get a build up of fluid in the thorax and abdomen. In the chronic form of the disease this fluid organises to leave peritonitis and pleuritis which often persists until slaughter. Continue Reading →. ...
The highest seropositivity rates across all age groups were detected with the A/Sw/Minnesota virus as antigen. Although this strain was isolated from American pigs, the HA, NA, and PB1 genes are of human origin (6). Taking into consideration the cutoff values of this study, seropositivity to the swine H1 virus was only detected in 2 samples, from persons 43 and 59 years of age. However, lower titers were detected in 4 more persons 33-55 years of age. The weak reactivity to this virus could suggest a past exposure of adult persons to viruses of swine origin, a situation that has not occurred in persons ,30 years of age.. The animal population owned by persons in this study consisted of pigs (68.7%), chickens (73%), and ducks (17.3%). Any combination of 2 or 3 species was kept by 54.7%. The range of the number of animals owned was 0-12 (mean 2.9) pigs, 0-60 (mean 7) chickens, and 0-23 (mean 0.93) ducks. Since we did not have avian antigens available, serum samples collected from humans, pigs, ...

The H1N1 influenza virus responsible for the most recent pandemic in 2009 (H1N1pdm) has spread to swine populations worldwide while it replaced the previous seasonal H1N1 virus in humans. In France, surveillance of swine influenza A viruses in pig herds with respiratory outbreaks led to the detection of 44 H1N1pdm strains between 2009 and 2017, regardless of the season, and findings were not correlated with pig density. From these isolates, 17 whole-genome sequences were obtained, as were 6 additional hemagglutinin (HA)/neuraminidase (NA) sequences, in order to perform spatial and temporal analyses of genetic diversity and to compare evolutionary patterns of H1N1pdm in pigs to patterns for human strains. Following mutation accumulation and fixation over time, phylogenetic analyses revealed for the first time the divergence of a swine-specific genogroup within the H1N1pdm lineage. The divergence is thought to have occurred around 2011, although this was demonstrated only through strains isolated ...
