During the 26th IPVS congress in Rio de Janeiro this past month, a number of presentations were given by University of Minnesota speakers, sharing the latest in swine research. Cipriano de Abreu from the MycoLab received two best presentation awards for his talks: "Mycoplasma hyorhinis detection in dams and piglets during lactation" and "An experimental aerosol infection model for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae in pigs."
While Fabio Vannucci was a member of the scientific committee, a vast number of UMN faculty members and graduate students gave presentations:
- "Evaluation of air filters in swine farms as a surveillance method to assess the spread of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome and influenza A viruses," Gustavo Lopez
- "The path ahead on Mycoplasma control," Maria Pieters
- "Changes in the upper and lower respiratory microbiome during early Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection in pigs," Maria Pieters
- "Sow mortality: Removal reasons and factors associated with increased mortality," Guilherme Preis
- "Distinguishing viable from non-viable Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae by PCR," Maria Pieters
- "Multi-farm long-term investigation of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection in processing fluids," Maria Pieters
- "Assessing Senecavirus A shedding and transmission in growing pig populations," Guilherme Preis
