Efficacy of dietary spray dried plasma protein to mitigate the negative effects on performance of pigs fed diets with corn naturally contaminated with multiple mycotoxins.
The ability of spray dried plasma protein (SDPP) to reduce the negative effects of multiple mycotoxins from naturally contaminated corn on weaned pig performance and health was investigated (n = 180;Expand

Lack of transmission of porcine circovirus type 2 to weanling pigs by feeding them spray-dried porcine plasma
An experiment was conducted to determine whether spray-dried porcine plasma containing 2·47 × 105 dna copies of porcine circovirus type 2 (pcv-2) could infect weanling pigs when fed to them. FiveExpand

Review of spray-dried plasma's impact on intestinal barrier function.
Stress events have been shown to reduce intestinal barrier function (i.e., weaning, co-mingling, pathogen challenge, heat stress, etc.). Normal gut barrier function is important for maintainingExpand
