Prevalence of vt2e in pigs: systematic literature review

Reliable data on the worldwide presence of verotoxigenic strains of Escherichia coli (VTEC) producing verotoxin-2e (Vt2e) could explain the overall prevalence of swine edema causing a deleterious economic impact in the swine industry. Therefore, a systematic literature review on the prevalence of Vt2e was performed to evaluate the information about the presence of swine edema disease in swine farms.

摘要

Only one study that specifically assessed the prevalence of the vt20 gene in healthy pig farms was found. Thus, the prevalence of Vt2e was determined based on the high percentage of the vt2e gene in VTEC isolates from healthy pigs in Europe and North America.
