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.
