Mycoplasmas in swine 1st edition

Swine can be infected with many different mycoplasmas. Some are important pathogens, causing significant health and welfare issues in pigs and major losses to the swine industry worldwide. Other mycoplasmas are not pathogenic for swine and can be considered commensals. This book provides up-to-date scientific, clinical and practical information of the most important pathogenic mycoplasmas in swine.

Most emphasis has been placed on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae as the most economically important, but other pathogenic species like Mycoplasma hyorhinis, Mycoplasma hyosynoviae and Mycoplasma suis are also discussed. Written by internationally renowned scientists and clinicians from all over the world, this book draws together in depth knowledge, expertise and experience in swine mycoplasmas to provide an evidence-based, academically rigorous and practical collection. It aims to serve the scientific and veterinary community and the swine industry worldwide.

Mycoplasmas are among the most important bacterial pathogens of pigs. They establish chronic infections that are difficult to eliminate, from the pig and the farm. They result in significant economic loss, predispose pigs to disease caused by more acute pathogens, and have an impact on the welfare of the pigs.

Control of mycoplasmosis in the intensive chicken industry has reached a point where antimicrobial therapy for mycoplasmas is rarely required in many countries. This has been achieved by establishing mycoplasma-free breeding stock, by development of accurate diagnostic tests, implementation of regular testing, development of vaccines that limit infection, eliminate its effects and reduce transmission, and by implementing rigorous biosecurity protocols.

Control of mycoplasmoses is an important goal for the global pig industry, and recent eradication efforts attest to the level of determination in some countries to achieve this goal. However, the limitations we still face in effectively controlling porcine mycoplasmoses is one of the leading reasons for using antimicrobials in pig farms. Total disease control should be achievable with sufficient ongoing research and development to enhance our tools for control and their application in the field.
