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].
