BACKGROUND In pigs little is known about the role of innate immune defence in bacterial infections of the respiratory tract, despite their major role in pig production. In the present study we characterized and compared in vitro and in vivo activation of immune markers of different pig breeds 7 days before, and 4 and 21 days after an experimental aerosol infection with Actinobacillus (A.) pleuropneumoniae. RESULTS In vitro stimulation of bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and blood… CONTINUE READING
