American Association of Swine Veterinarians aims for PRRS eradication
PRRS (porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome) remains a disease which causes enormous costs every year: as the American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) estimates the disease costs the industry $560 million annually. Now the society adopted a position statement reaffirming its war on the disease...

It is believed to be the swine industry`s most expensive disease with a high mortality rate: Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome outbreaks cripple herds. Up to 75 percent of piglets in an infected herd can die within their first days of life, experts say.

Experts predict the battle may drag out another 20 years. But the statement, passed during AASV`s annual board meeting, shows the group eager to take a role in supporting research, practitioners and producers striving to eradicate PRRS. It`s a bold approach for the association and outlines AASV`s intent to steer efforts toward the disease`s elimination, Executive Director Dr. Tom Burkgren says.

`This is going to be a huge effort that in a big way will depend on the collaboration between universities, the government and a lot of other different parties,` he says. `Our goal is to make that clear to everybody.`

Those parties likely will include researchers at the University of Minnesota (UM), where professor Dr. Scott Dee, author of the position statement, has studied PRRS for years.

`Eradication is not realistic today; there are missing pieces in terms of the science,` he says. `But if AASV can correlate some of the research efforts, we`ve got a chance.`

The statement notes that because disease control has not been effective, eradication is a necessary long-term goal. As experts estimate, fifteen to 20 years from now, national eradication efforts could be underway.

Enrofloxacin and the porcine livermembers
Enrofloxacin (EF) is a widely used fluoroquinolone, usually regarded as a safe and effective treatment for bacterial infections. Adverse effects of EF have previously been demonstrated in some species, but so far there have been no studies looking specifically at the impact of EF on pigs. In this study, three different doses of EF (5, 25 and 125 mg kg bw−1) were administrated to Bama pigs.
