RACVE awarded with a consolation prize the scientific publication about M. hyopneumoniae infection

Beatriz García Morante, Industrial doctoral student at CReSA, is the author, together with Dr. Marina Sibila, researcher of CReSA, and Dr. Joaquim Segalés, director of the aforementioned research center, of the article “Serology utilization and interpretation for Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae infection diagnosis”, awarded with a consolation prize by the scientific committee of Real Academia de Ciencias Veterinarias (RACVE).

The article, published in the Producción Animal magazine, was presented to the Boehringer Ingelheim Prize for Science Communication of RACVE. This prize aims to promote and recognize the work of veterinarians in the dissemination of advances that occur in the veterinary field, in the fields of production, animal health and welfare.

The presented work briefly introduces the clinical, pathological and epidemiological characteristics of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (M. hyopneumoniae) infection, reviewing the different diagnostic techniques, especially ELISA technique.

The main purpose of this article is to update the information regarding the serological diagnosis of M. hyopneumoniae infection, with particular interest in the utility, advantages and disadvantages, as well as key points for the correct interpretation of the results.

The diagnosis of M. hyopneumoniae infection is complex and requires a combination of several diagnostic tools. The correct interpretation of the results, together with an understanding of the epidemiology of this infection should allow discern whether this pathogen is the causative agent of the problems in the farm and therefore allow decisions to control infection.
