Evalutation of an Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae experimental infection in pigs vaccinated with bivalent pocine parvovirus and E. rhusiopathiae vaccines

The aim of this study was to evaluate the duration of immunity elicited in naïve pigs by three different inactivated bivalent Porcine Parvovirus (PPV) and Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae vaccines after challenge with pathogenic swine E. rhusiopathiae strains.

Summary

Animals from group 1 had the lowest temperature increase after the experimental infection with the virulent E. rhusiopathiae strains, indicating that the new vaccine is capable of maintaining physiological temperatures after infection. The new vaccine is effective in reducing skin lesions produced after the E. rhusiopathiae infection.
