Moredun Scientific to develop model of pig respiratory infection

Moredun Scientific has been awarded a SMART proof of concept grant from the Technology Strategy Board to develop an experimental model of the bacterial infection which causes porcine enzootic pneumonia in pigs.

Mycoplasma hyopneumonia infection has been identified as the primary contributor to porcine enzootic pneumonia. An experimental model which can mimic infection by M. hyopneumonia will advance research into possible vaccines and therapies for this costly livestock disease.
