This study analyzes quality traits of longissimus lumborum and gluteus medius in surgically castrated (SC) males, inmunocastrated (IC) males and IC female Iberian pigs reared in intensive conditions (n = 18/sex). Vaccination with Improvac® was applied at 18 and 26 weeks of age and slaughtering at 31 weeks. At such conditions, notable sex differences were found. Both muscles of IC males were less red (P

This study evaluated different gilt vaccination protocols against Mycoplasma (M.) hyopneumoniae at acclimation and their effect on the genetic diversity. A total of 180 M. hyopneumoniae naïve gilts were selected 1 week post-entry (wpe) at the acclimation barn in a clinically affected M. hyopneumoniae farm. Gilts were distributed according to the M. hyopneumoniae antibodies levels into three different vaccination schedules: A) four doses of a M. hyopneumoniae commercial vaccine at 2, 4, 6 and 8 wpe; B) two vaccine doses at 2 and 6 wpe and PBS at 4 and 8 wpe; and C) four PBS doses at the same wpe. Detection of M. hyopne...

We used phage lysate (PL), composed of inactivated antigens by the lytic bacteriophage pAh 6-c for Aeromonas hydrophila JUNAH strain to develop a vaccine for the prevention of A. hydrophila infection in Cyprinus carpio (common carp). We also assessed t...

It is imperative to develop a vaccine against this common organism. The amphoteric derivatives of the mannan component of the Candida cell wall may present a prospective target for the development of such a vaccine; however, the radical processing by antigen-presenting cells of the immune system is not fully understood. In this work a se...

Authors: Benton AH, Marquart ME Abstract Streptococcus pneumoniae is a gram-positive, facultatively anaerobic pathogen that can cause severe infections such as pneumonia, meningitis, septicemia, and middle ear infections. It is also one of the top pathogens contributing to bacterial keratitis and conjunctivitis. Though two pneumococcal vaccines exist for the prevention of nonocular diseases, they do little to fully prevent ocular infections. This pathogen has several virulence factors that wreak havoc on the conjunctiva, cornea, and intraocular system. Polysaccharide capsule aids in the evasion of host complement s...
