Bacterial respiratory disease in pigs takes place all over the world. It usually becomes worse due to stress from poor
ventilation and temperature change, as well as secondary infection after viral infection. It causes economic damages
arising from death and reduced productivity. Typical pathogens include Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App),
Actinobacillus suis (A. suis), Haemophilus parasuis (H. Parasuis) and Streptococcus suis (S. Suis).
Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App), a pathogen for pleuropneumonia, causes sudden death in adult and immature pigs
Actinobacillus suis (A. suis) normally stays in porcine tonsil, nasal cavity, or vagina, and it causes acute sepsis,
pneumonia, arthritis, abortion and swine erysipelas in poor immune status or worse management condition.
Haemophilus parasuis (H. parasuis), the Causal Body of Glasser's Disease, causes respiratory pneumonia and systemic
polyserositis. A growing pig usually shows symptoms such as sneezing, anorexia, high fever, a weight loss, joint swelling,
conjunctivitis, etc. During chronic progression, mortality rate as high as 10~50% has been reported.
Streptococcus suis (S. suis) infection causes porcine respiratory disease most frequently among Streptococcus species
and also develops into pneumonia, meningitis, arthritis, chronic bronchitis, etc.
