Issue No. 16 - Autumn 2003
In this bulletin: There is a lot of information in this issue. Very briefly, PRRS virus (PRRSV) is confirmed to induce immunomodulation. Several papers have confirmed that CD8+ T lymphocytes play an important role in the defense against PRRSV.
     PRRSV is also claimed to interfere with Swine influenza inactivated vaccines. This goes in the same direction as the previous findings of the same team (E. Thacker et al., ISU, Ames, IA) which showed an interference between PRRSV infection and M. hyo vaccination.
     On the forefront of PCV2 research, among other topics under debate, the type of cell where the virus primarily replicates and the link between immuno-stimulation and PCV2 diseases are said to be still unknown.

Issue No. 15 - Summer 2003
In this bulletin: Work showing that the vaccination of sows against M. hyopneumoniae can help reduce the prevalence of the bacterium in their piglets and separately, the role of maternally derived antibodies, age and other factors on m.hyo vaccinal response. You will find a summary of the current leptospirosis health status of European countries, three articles on CSF, including a focus on Asia, and two on swine influenza. There is work on dual infection with PRRS and PRC and work on strain specificity and the immune response of pigs vaccinated against PRRS. There are six articles on PCV2/PMWS. Sow productivity and production in Italy and China are covered along with several articles on parasites.

Issue No. 12 - Fall 2002
In this bulletin: Some interesting confirmation that heatstable toxins are the most frequent virulence factors in ETEC, and that C. difficile is playing a role in digestive disorders in neonates. Even if early vaccination schedules against M. hyopneumoniae are now controversial, vaccination was proved to be beneficial: a meta-analysis based on a large number of trials points out a 21-gram improvement of the ADWG, on an average. PCV2 and associated diseases are more and more spreading over the world. You'll find some initial report of them in Czech Republic, Greece and Japan and a the case of a rare form of PCV2-related exudative epidermitis in Sweden.
