Abstract

A number of studies have demonstrated a link between the detection of potentially pathogenic Escherichia coli strains and economic loss in the swine industry. E. coli strains belong to different commensal or pathogenic clonal groups, the latter being characterized by the presence of specific virulence genes.

A number of studies have demonstrated a link between the detection of potentially pathogenic Escherichia coli strains and economic loss in the swine industry. E. coli strains belong to different commensal or pathogenic clonal groups, the latter being characterized by the presence of specific virulence genes.
