Building on the best practices of Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) ControlBuilding on the best practices of Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) Control In this panel discussion from the 2016 North American PRRS Symposium, researchers and veterinarians address audience questions about the best practices of porcine reproductive & respiratory syndrome (PRRS) control. Panel members include Dr. PH Rathkjen, Boehringer Ingelheim; Dr. Roger Main, Iowa State University; Dr. Mike Roof, Boehringer Ingelheim; and Dr. Daniel Linhares, Iowa State University, Swine Health and Productivity [video].

The Microbiome In Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome

The role of the microbiome in Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS)The role of the microbiome in Porcine Reproductive & Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) Dr. Megan Niederwerder, Diagnostic Medicine/Pathobiology, Kansas State University, shares the role of the microbiome in PRRS, possibly as an alternative tool to improve the disease response in pigs. Dr. Niederwerder states the microbiome may be used as an alternative tool and novel intervention strategy for management of infectious disease in swine [video].

Host Genetics Of Resistance To Porcine Diseases

Update on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseasesUpdate on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseases Dr. Jack Dekkers, Animal Breeding and Genetics, Department of Animal Science, Iowa State University, gives an update on the host genetics of resistance to porcine diseases. Dr. Dekkers outlines the experimental trials he is working on that have co-infection of nursery pigs: PRRS + PCV2 (incl. PRRS vaccination) [video].

Can We Define A Model Of Metrics For Antibiotics and Resistance?

The NIAA Effort: Learning from the June RoundtableLearning From The NIAA Antibiotic June Roundtable Dr. Christopher Braden, Deputy Director, National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, CDC, presents a model of metrics to understand the judicious use of antibiotics experience in human health. Dr. Braden outlines several metrics categories: antibiotic Use with prescription data, antibiotic stewardship with facility data, and antibiotic-resiatance trends and spread with microbiologic data. Dr. Braden highlights several example metric and reporting projects, like the community antibiotic prescribing rates per 1000 population in the United States [video].
