Contemporary North American Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae MICs

This is our Friday rubric: every week a new Science Page from the Bob Morrison’s Swine Health Monitoring Project. The previous editions of the science page are available on our website.

This week, the MycoLab at the University of Minnesota shares results from a project looking at Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MICs) from various US isolates.

Key points

  • Antibiotic susceptibility profiles of eleven M. hyopneumoniae isolates circulating in the US within the most recent six years were obtained. 
  • Overall, a high in vitro efficacy of the tested antimicrobials against M. hyopneumoniae field isolates was observed.
