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].
