As could be expected, all pigs from CHG group died after the challenge, showing the clinical symptoms of Glasser's disease: high temperature, limb incoordination, swollen joints, severe dyspnea, and coughing.
A previous study reported by our group [5] showed a high IL-1a expression in the brain of a pig dying as a consequence of Glasser's disease. In the current report, we wanted to know how IL-1[beta] responded to infection, and our results allowed us to assure that pigs suffering from Glasser's disease expressed high amounts of this cytokine.
Finally, the protection conferred by NPAPT vaccines was enough to prevent an inflammatory reaction mediated by CCL-2, CXCL-8, IL-1[alpha], IL-1[beta], IL-6, TNF-[alpha], and IL-10, making NPAPT antigen a suitable candidate to control Glasser's disease caused by H.
