  • Forty-eight feeder pigs were used in an experiment to determine Virginiamycin's effectiveness in preventing swine dysentery. (k-state.edu)
  • Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) causes postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS) in growing pigs but generally requires the presence of other infectious or non-infectious factors to produce the full clinical expression of disease. (slu.se)
  • Three-day-old colostrum-deprived pigs infected with PCV2 and PPV developed severe PMWS, and a possible role for interleukin 10 as well as impaired production of antibodies to PCV2 in the development of disease was observed. (slu.se)
  • Four-week-old colostrum fed pigs infected with PCV2 in combination with E. coli did not develop clinical disease, but alterations of functions of immune cells were observed ex vivo and could be related to the presence of PCV2. (slu.se)
  • clinical
  • Virginiamycin was judged effective in preventing clinical cases of swine dysentery, but it has not been cleared for use in swine. (k-state.edu)
  • The presence of immunomodulatory sequences in the genome of PCV2 may contribute to evasive mechanisms utilized by the virus during persistent infection of immune cells and/or development of clinical disease. (slu.se)
  • African
  • This study used a molecular and ecological approach to investigate the role of the bushpig in the epidemiology of African swine fever at the wildlife-livestock interface in Uganda. (ruforum.org)
