Emerging Issues in Antibiotic Resistance Linked to Use in Food Animals

Emerging Issues in Antibiotic Resistance Linked to Use in Food AnimalsEmerging Issues in Antibiotic Resistance Linked to Use in Food Animals Dr. Peter Davies, College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Minnesota, reviews emerging issues in antibiotic resistance linked to use in food animals. Dr. Davies highlights work Environmental Antibiotic Resistome. Key take aways: 1) Increasing scrutiny of antibiotic use in food animals will not go away; 2) More ‘issue management’ in response to descriptive findings of AMR genes/bacteria in food animals and retail products; 3) Mostly without direct links to public health impact; 4) Proactive approaches to ensure customers and critics of 'appropriate uses'; and 5) Get on board the ‘antibiotic stewardship’ train [video].

Comparison of Intestinal Lesions

Comparison of intestinal lesions between Enterisol® Ileitis and Porcilis® Ileitis using a Lawsonia intracellularis mucosal homogenate seeder pig challenge modelComparison of intestinal lesions between Enterisol® Ileitis and Porcilis® Ileitis using a Lawsonia intracellularis mucosal homogenate seeder pig challenge model Dr. Jessica Seate, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc, presents research on a comparison of intestinal lesions between Enterisol® Ileitis and Porcilis® Ileitis using a Lawsonia intracellularis mucosal homogenate seeder pig challenge model. Dr. Seate concludes with a summary that shares that IHC scores and histologic lesions (H&E) were lower for Enterisol® Ileitis group compared to the Porcilis® Ileitis and NVC groups, Enterisol® Ileitis had lowest percentage of PCR positives at necropsy, and IgG Lawsonia ELISA titers are not indicative of protective immunity [video].

Efficacy of Ingelvac PRRS® MLV

Efficacy of Ingelvac PRRS® MLV against a heterologous PRRSV 1-7-4 RFLP challengeEfficacy of Ingelvac PRRS® MLV against a heterologous PRRSV 1-7-4 RFLP challenge Dr. Reid Philips, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc, shares insights on the efficacy of Ingelvac PRRS® MLV against a heterologous PRRSV 1-7-4 RFLP challenge. Key findings include: Ingelvac PRRS® MLV demonstrated significant protection against a virulent PRRSv ‘174’ challenge: 1) Significant reduction in viremia, 2) Significant reduction in lung lesions, and 3) Significant improvement in Daily Gain. Also, Ingelvac PRRS® MLV continues to demonstrate cross protection against new-emerging field strains [video].

Comparison Of Efficacy Between Two Pcv2 Vaccination Protocols

Comparison of efficacy between two PCV2 vaccination protocols under PCV2d field exposureComparison of efficacy between two PCV2 vaccination protocols under PCV2d field exposure Dr. Eduardo Fano, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc, shares a research comparison of efficacy between two PCV2 vaccination protocols under PCV2d field exposure. Key finding: No efficacy differences between these 2 vaccination protocols were documented in this study under 1) PCV2d field/natural challenge, and 2) PRRSV Co infection [video].

Snapshot of U.S. Exports & International Trade

U.S. Exports & International Trade - PORK AcademyU.S. Exports & International Trade - PORK Academy Dr. Dermot Hayes, Iowa State University, walks through a detailed analysis of the global pork trade and how China is changing to meet their pork supply needs. Dr. Hayes' take aways: "China is driving world pork markets and will do so for at least 18 months." and "Unless new subsidies are introduced in China, imports should continue to grow. New subsidies will happen if China becomes concerned about a trade war." [video].
