1. "PRRS: The sound of the cough"

“Coughs sound different because of subtle differences in the ways that organisms cause damage to the respiratory tract”

Pigs with PRRS have a distinctive cough due to the type of damage inflicted by the virus, we hear from Dr. Greg Stevenson (veterinary diagnostic pathologist at Iowa State University, USA). Combined with information on the number of pigs in a barn that develop coughing over time, this helps us to recognise PRRS and differentiate it from other respiratory pathogens.    (Running time: 38 minutes)


2. M.hyo and SIV: Contrasts for speed of spreading

“Compared to PRRS, Mycoplasma is very slowly transmitted while influenza is a highly transmissible agent” 

After our separate podcast with him about PRRS, veterinary diagnostic pathologist Dr. Greg Stevenson discusses coughing in pigs due to Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and the type-A swine influenza virus.
(Running time: 33 minutes) 


3. APP: Profile of a rapid killer

“It’s like an invading army in the lung, pigs can die from it within a day of infection”

This third podcast interviewing Dr. Greg Stevenson (veterinary diagnostic pathologist at Iowa State University, USA) deals with the incredibly rapid, virulent respiratory disease in pigs caused by Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae or APP.    (Running time: 17 minutes)


4. PRRS: Panel picks latest research award winners

“We would like to have more proposals from the field”

Professor Enric Mateu (UAB/CRESA, Barcelona, Spain) chairs the five-person independent expert panel that judges applications for the annual European PRRS research awards sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim. Here he outlines the three winning proposals in the latest round, each receiving a 25,000 Euros award  and invites more veterinary practitioners to consider applying. 
(Running time: 26 minutes) 


PRRS: Sequencing in practice

“Like a cloud that is spreading, the diversity of the virus is becoming bigger and bigger”

We hear from Dr. Poul Henning Rathkjen of Boehringer Ingelheim Nordic about the practical value of sequencing to identify a PRRS virus and indicate its origins.
(Running time: 28 minutes) 


PRRS: Gilt entry holds the key to herd stability

“The tricky part of herd immunisation is how you introduce your gilts”

Our second podcast with Dr. Poul Henning Rathkjen of Boehringer Ingelheim Nordic covers the herd management procedures that support effective vaccination against PRRS.
(Running time: 19 minutes)
