The serum antibody response to an experimental infection by Haemophilus parasuis, the etiological agent of Glässer's disease in pigs, was characterized by ELISA measuring IgM and IgGt levels against whole-cells and outer-membrane-proteins (OMPs) as antigens. Five groups of pigs were studied, four of those were previously immunized with different(More)
The acute-phase protein (APP) response to an infection caused by Haemophilus parasuis, the etiological agent of Glässer's disease in pigs, was characterized measuring serum concentrations of pig major acute-phase protein (pig MAP), haptoglobin (HPT), C-reactive protein (CRP) and apolipoprotein A-I (ApoA-I) in colostrum-deprived pigs. They were divided into(More)
Four groups of pigs immunized with different vaccines and a group of non-vaccinated controls were challenged intratracheally with a lethal dose (5 x 10(9) colony-forming units) of Haemophilus parasuis, the aetiological agent of Glässer's disease. A vaccine containing inactivated whole organisms gave strong protection against clinical signs, death,(More)
The susceptibility to an initial challenge and a re-challenge inoculation with Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae was analysed in pigs that were treated with antimicrobials of different efficacies following the first exposure to A pleuropneumoniae. In brief, 30 nine-week-old specific pathogen-free pigs were allocated to five groups of six. After(More)
