In vitro effect of deoxynivalenol (DON) mycotoxin on porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus replication
Deoxynivalenol (DON) is a mycotoxin produced by Fusarium spp. Among monogastric farm animals, swine are the most susceptible to DON as it markedly reduces feed intake and decreases weight gain. DON has also been shown ...
Persistence of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and porcine circovirus type 2 in bacterial biofilms
The aim of this pilot project was to investigate association of viruses with bacterial biofilms. Our preliminary data indicate that important viral pathogens of swine, namely, porcine reproductive and respiratory ...
Unusual central nervous system lesions in slaughter-weight pigs with porcine circovirus type 2 systemic infection
Lésions inhabituelles au système nerveux central chez des porcs au poids d’abattage atteints d’une infection systémique par le circovirus porcin type 2. Une infection systémique par le circovirus porcin type 2 fut ...
Genetic diversity of group A rotavirus in swine in Canada
Group A rotaviruses (RVA) in pigs have been poorly investigated in Canada. In a continued effort to fill this gap, ten finisher swine farms in Quebec, Canada, were sampled over a nine-month period. The presence of RVA was ...
Dynamics of viral distribution in a defined swine production network using enteric viruses as molecular markers
Modern swine production systems represent complex and dynamic networks involving numerous stakeholders. For instance, livestock transporters carry live animals between fattening sites, abattoirs, and other premises on a ...
