This is our most popular series on the blog. Once a month, we are sharing with you a presentation given at the Allen D. Leman swine conference, on topics that the swine group found interesting, innovative or that lead to great discussions.
You can find all of the presentations selected from previous conferences on the blog here.
One of the most well liked sessions from the 2020 Allen D. Leman swine conference focused on Streptococcus suis. Three great presenters shared their expertise with this common but challenging swine pathogen:
Saying hello to our little friend: Streptococcus suis diagnostics, Matt Sturos
Streptococcus suis control and recent field experiences, Matt Allerson
Managing S.suis one gene at a time, Maria Jose Clavijo
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.
In this new episode, our hosts invited Dr. Maria Clavijo from Iowa State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and Dr. Adam Schelkopf from Pipestone Services to discuss the various new diagnostic techniques to identify differences in Streptococcus suis strains.
On this Monday morning, we would like to share with you this article published in Research in Veterinary Science by PhD-candidate Shivdeep Hayer advised by Dr. Julio Alvarez. The peer-reviewed publication is a summary of antimicrobial resistances (AMR) in swine respiratory isolates between 2006 and 2016.
AMR data for bacterial swine pathogens associated with Swine Respiratory Disease Complex are lacking
AMR data on swine bacterial pathogens collected over 11 years in the U.S.A was analyzed for changes in AMR prevalence
AMR in S. suis and P. multocida isolates mostly remained low
There were statistically significant changes in AMR in A. suis and H. parasuis
Use of surrogate breakpoints can lead to different AMR estimates for certain bacteria
