• Bacteria
  • The present invention pertains to a method to produce RTX-toxin Apxl by culturing Actinobacillus pleuropneumonica bacteria in a liquid culturing medium that supports growth of the bacteria, to which medium a calcium salt is added to form calcium ions in the medium, wherein the culturing medium contains borogluconate to form a calcium borogluconate complex in the medium.

  • pigs
  • Out of the 420 samples, 134 were positive with 112 of them belonging to pigs under 10 weeks of age while only 22 were from animals over 10 weeks of age, which seroconverted presumably due to a natural infection. (scielo.cl)
  • Following infection of 12 pigs, clinical signs of pneumonia developed within 20 h, whereafter the animals received a single dose of either danofloxacin (2.5 mg/kg) or tiamulin (10 mg/kg). (dtu.dk)
  • This indicates that CRP, zinc, ascorbic acid and to a lesser extent interleukin-6 and alpha-tocopherol might be used to evaluate antibiotic treatment of acute Ap-infection ill pigs. (dtu.dk)
  • Protein
  • During the infection period, plasma C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 and haptoglobin increased, whereas plasma zinc, ascorbic acid and alpha-tocopherol decreased. (dtu.dk)
