  Introduction Influenza A virus (IAV) causes significant epidemics of respiratory disease in humans that result in human deaths and raise public health concerns that require a deeper understanding of IAV epidemiology and control. IAV is shared among animals and people and novel viruses capable of causing pandemics are the result of reassortant viruses from different species. Despite eviden ...

Introduction Among all infectious agents, those transmitted through aerosols are the most difficult to control [1]. The speed of dispersion of airborne infectious agents makes them hard to contain and protect against, and the wide reach of susceptible hosts makes the control of airborne pathogens a priority for public and animal health officials.   Infectious agents travel associated with ...

Introduction Influenza A viruses (IAVs) are Orthomixoviruses able to infect many animal species including birds, pigs and humans [1]. The segmented genome of IAVs allows the exchange of gene segments between IAVs during infection and replication [2] facilitating the emergence of novel IAV reassortants with pandemic potential. The 2009 pandemic IAV contained genes from swine IAVs circulating in ...

  1 Introduction Among all infectious agents affecting swine, airborne pathogens are the most costly and difficult to control (Hyslop 1971). Porcine reproductive respiratory syndrome (PRRS), influenza A (IA), foot and mouth disease (FMD), classical swine fever (CSF) and porcine epidemic diarrhea (PED) viruses are important swine pathogens that spread via aerosols (Sta¨rk 1999). All thes ...

Introduction H. parasuis is considered one of the most important bacterial pathogens affecting pigs. Vaccines and other management strategies have not always been successful in controlling the losses associated to H. parasuis. This bacterium frequently colonizes the mucosal of the swine upper respiratory tract. Oliveira et al., (2004) showed that exposure of young pigs to a low dose of virulent H ...

Introduction Influenza A virus infections (flu) in swine cause respiratory disease and decreased growth performance (Olsen et al., 2006). Different studies have demonstrated that flu is widespread in swine throughout the world, and the constant risk of virus transmission, especially to humans (Maes et al., 2000; Jung et al., 2002; Hayden and Croisier, 2005; Maldonado et al., 2006; Myers et al., 2 ...

Introduction During the period of 1976-2007, 1.4 to 16.7 deaths per 100,000 persons were influenza-associated in the United States each year [1]. In addition to the significant mortality and morbidity associated with influenza virus in the human population, influenza A virus (IAV) is a common pathogen in many animal species, including pigs. Influenza virus has been considered widespread in the Un ...

Information
Dr. Montse Torremorell is an animal health expert with emphasis in infectious swine diseases and strategies to improve the health of swine systems. Her research involves the understanding of influenza virus transmission and the factors that contribute to virus spread and establishment of endemic infections in populations. Understanding influenza virus epidemiology, ecology and control in complex swine systems is a priority of her research. In addition, her research also centers in understanding PRRSV transmission and strategies to prevent and eradicate the virus in geographical regions.
