Sows and gilts on a breeding and finishing unit seroconverted to porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) virus between February and March 1992. The signs of the disease progressed through the breeding herd to the piglets, weaners, growers and finally the finishing pigs. Forty-eight finishing pigs, on a nutritional experiment in which the individual pigs' food intake was recorded daily, showed signs of PRRS and later of swine influenza virus infection. Blood samples collected at… Expand
Population dynamics of swine influenza virus in finishing pigs
The occurrence of influenza virus infections in finishing pigs was quite different in farrow-to finish herds when compared to finishing herds, and differences may have implications for the choice of intervention measures, whether this is intervention through vaccination, or intervention through zoosanitary measures.

Survey of infectious agents involved in acute respiratory disease in finishing pigs
In this study, 16 outbreaks of respiratory disease with acute clinical signs in finishing pigs were investigated to determine which infectious agents were involved and a clear diagnosis was possible in 12 of the 16 outbreaks. Expand
Detection of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and Mycoplasma hyorhinis antigens in pulmonary lesions of pigs suffering from respiratory distress
Findings demonstrate that dual infection with M. hyorhinis and PRRSV caused severe pulmonary lesions in pigs inoculated with the virus. Expand
Strategy to improve swine influenza virus (SIV) vaccination
The impact that PRRSV infection has on SIV vaccine efficacy is important for disease control and is demonstrated by increased clinical disease and levels of SIV shedding at the acute phase of infection. Expand

Evidence that the pandemic H1N1 virus can be maintained in European pigs even when there are relatively good levels of herd immunity to other H1 viruses is demonstrated. Expand
Swine Flu -A Comprehensive View
Comprehensive view of Swine flu is aimed on comprehensive view of swine flu, which is a viral respiratory disease caused by viruses that infects pigs, resulting in nasal secretions, barking cough, decreased appetite, and listless behavior. Expand
Diagnosing endemic swine influenza virus in nursery pigs using cross-sectional serologic profiling
wine influenza virus (SIV) is a respiratory disease that affects pigs of all ages. The clinical signs include a deep-chested barking cough, sneezing, labored breathing, anorexia, lethargy, fever, aExpand
Intradermal vaccination against pseudorabies virus and swine influenza in growing/finishing pigs
In a herd free of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus, 300 growing/finishing pigs were vaccinated according to one of five protocols, and pathological and bacteriological findings were compared among treatment groups. Expand
Vaccine efficacy and immune response to swine influenza virus challenge in pigs infected with porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus at the time of SIV vaccination.
It is demonstrated that PRRSV infection has a significant impact on SIV vaccine efficacy that may be important for disease control. Expand
Virologic and serologic surveillance for human, swine and avian influenza virus infections among pigs in the north-central United States
From September 1997 through August 1998, 26 influenza viruses were isolated from pigs in the north-central United States at the point of slaughter and all 26 isolates were H1N1 viruses, and phylogenetic analyses of the hemagglutinin and nucleoprotein genes from 11 representative viruses demonstrated that these were classical swine H1 viruses.
