Characterization of Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli Broiler Isolates by Whole-Genome Sequencing
(Foodborne Pathogens and Disease, 2017-12-19)
Campylobacter has been the most commonly reported cause of bacterial diarrheal disease in humans in the European Union since 2005. Most broiler batches at slaughter are colonized with Campylobacter, and the major source ...
Current knowledge on Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV-3): A novel virus with a yet unknown impact on the swine industry
(Frontiers in Veterinary Science, 2018-12-12)
Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV-3) is a recently described virus belonging to the family Circoviridae. It represents the third member of genus Circovirus able to infect swine, together with PCV-1, considered non-pathogenic, and ...
Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) genetic variability under natural infection scenario reveals a complex network of viral quasispecies
(Scientific Reports, 2018-10-19)
Porcine circovirus 2 (PCV-2) is a virus characterized by a high evolutionary rate, promoting the potential emergence of diferent genotypes and strains. Despite the likely relevance in the emergence of new PCV-2 variants, ...
Antimicrobial removal on piglets promotes health and higher bacterial diversity in the nasal microbiota
(Scientific Reports, 2019-04-25)
The view on antimicrobials has dramatically changed due to the increased knowledge on the importance of microbiota composition in different body parts. Antimicrobials can no longer be considered only beneficial, but also ...
Exploratory metagenomic analyses of periweaning failure-to-thrive syndrome-affected pigs
(Veterinary Record, 2018-11-09)
Modern pig farming is characterised by the emergence of several syndromes whose aetiology is unclear or has a multifactorial origin, including periweaning failure-to-thrive syndrome (PFTS). In fact, its specific aetiology ...
Comparative analysis of the fecal microbiota from different species of domesticated and wild suids
(Scientific Reports, 2019-09-20)
Most of the microorganisms living in a symbiotic relationship in different animal body sites (microbiota) reside in the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). Several studies have shown that the microbiota is involved in host ...
