Experimental in-vitro evaluation of PRRSv modified-live vaccine and wild-type virus sequence detection in co-infections

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.

When the farm is exposed to a critical level of PRRSv in air, the probability of having an outbreak is four times higher for non-filtered farms: A retrospective analysis using wind data

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.

Researchers Kaushi Kanankege, Seunghyun Lim, and Andres Perez at the University of Minnesota examine wind data and find that farms exposed to a critical level of PRRSv in the air are four times more likely to have an outbreak if they do not have air filtration.

Summary: The impacts of viral infection and subsequent antimicrobials on the microbiome-resistome of growing pigs

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.

The Science Page this week describes a study done by Tara N. Gaire, Carissa Odland, Bingzhou Zhang, Tui Ray, Enrique Doster, Joel Nerem, Scott Dee, Peter Davies and Noelle Noyes and sheds some light on the antimicrobial resistances carried by the pig’s microbiome after disease and treatment.

Summary: Evaluation of the Impact of Antimicrobial Use Protocols in Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus-Infected Swine on Phenotypic Antimicrobial Resistance Patterns

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.

Today, researchers Carissa A. Odland, Roy Edler, Noelle R. Noyes, Scott A. Dee, and Joel Nerem summarize the findings of a 149-day study on antimicrobial use during PRRS infections.
