Research spotlight - A diagnostic approach to confirm Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae “Day Zero” for pathogen eradication

Reprinted as posted on Swine in Minnesota blog December 5, 2023

A recent study led by MycoLab researchers takes new steps to eliminating Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae), a bacterium that causes respiratory illness in pigs. M. hyopneumoniae is one of the most significant bacterial swine pathogens worldwide, impacting animal welfare and causing significant economic losses for the swine industry. The findings from this study demonstrate a diagnostic strategy aimed at helping to eliminate the pathogen from individual herds—and eventually, to eradicate it altogether.
