Bulletin No. 22 - Summer 2005


Welcome to the latest edition of our Swine Bibliographical bulletin.

There are a number of interesting publications around Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, one of the main respiratory pathogenic agents dealing with detection, epidemiology and vaccination. Another important part of the bulletin is dedicated to PRRSV sequence and its significance in terms of epidemiology and protection.
     New data about epidemiology and vaccination against classical swine fever are also available as well as an interesting piece of work showing that precocity of diagnosis by veterinarians is a very important factor for minimizing possible spread of the infection.
    Among other miscellaneous papers you'll also find valuable papers about how to manage weight difference in piglets, pig welfare and gastric ulcers.
