Respiratory pig diseases


The Respiratory Pig Diseases  dtec-qPCR-Panel-3 comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Respiratory pig diseases Haemophilus parasuis, Mycoplasma hyorhinis and Mycoplasma hyosynoviae detection by using qPCR. Haemophilus parasuis, Mycoplasma hyorhinis and Mycoplasma hyosynoviae are respiratory diseases of pigs capable of persist in a large number of animals for indefinite periods. The severity and economic importance are related to population density and to the type and size of herd. They may be of little importance in weanling pig operations but become of major importance in high-density herds. Despite mortality usually is low, economic damage results from an adverse effect on growth rates, decreased feeding efficiency, and additional costs of treatment drugs. H. parasuis is one of the most important bacteria affecting pigs, responsible of Glasser’s disease and other diseases, as well as contributing to bacterial pneumonia. M. hyorhinis is often found as a commensal in the respiratory tract of pigs. It is thought to facilitate and exacerbate the development of diseases such as porcine enzootic pneumonia and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome. M. hyosynoviae is one of the causing agents of infectious arthritis in pigs it is ubiquitous and most, if not all herds are infected with it.
