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.
In this week’s science page UMN Veterinary Population Medicine researchers Joaquin Alvarez-Norambuena, Mariana Kikuti, Albert Rovira and Cesar Corzo investigate the detection of wild-type or modified-live vaccine sequences in in-vitro samples.

Podcasts are a perfect way to get caught up with new swine information! We are presenting you the latest episode from “At The Meeting… Honoring Dr. Bob Morrison” in collaboration with SwineCast.
If a modified live vaccine is one of your weapons against a significant PRRS break, using the labeled dose at the right time is critical. Yet this science-based fact is not always followed.

The Plos One journal just published a new study by Dr. Gustavo Lopez and the Torremorell lab. The objectives of the project were to 1)assess the onset and duration of live attenuated influenza vaccine shedding in vaccinated pre-weaned pigs, 2)investigate the transmission of the live attenuated influenza vaccine from vaccinated to non-vaccinated pigs under field conditions and 3)evaluate whether the live attenuated influenza vaccine could be aerosolized and detected in the environment.
