The article focuses on the economic damage costs of the porcine enzootic pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae to the profits of pork production in the U.S. According to swine expert Erin Strait, the M. hyo organism attaches itself to the epithelial cells lining of the respiratory tract of older pigs than n younger pigs. In addition, it cites the signs of infection which includes productive cough, decresed appetite, and lower feed intake.

    The current model of measles virus (MV) pathogenesis implies that apical infection of airway epithelial cells precedes systemic spread. An alternative model suggests that primarily infected lymphatic cells carry MV to the basolateral surface of epithelial cells, supporting MV shedding into the...

    Swine-origin H3N2v, a variant of H3N2 influenza virus, is a concern for novel reassortment with circulating pandemic H1N1 influenza virus (H1N1pdm09) in swine because this can lead to the emergence of a novel pandemic virus. In this study, the reassortment prevalence of H3N2v with H1N1pdm09 was...
