Bulletin No. 20 - Winter 2004


The weather is cold and foggy. Thus you will enjoy reading this interesting literature selection in your armchair, close to the fireplace. You will appreciate some epidemiological findings and a comprehensive review from our colleague Henry Too about ETEC. News and confirmed previous data about PCV2 and PRRSV are keeping close to a nice bunch of papers on swine influenza including a particularly interesting study showing that H3N2 infection in seropositive gilts may induce stillbirth.
