E-mail: falustiza@ayv.unrc.edu.ar ABSTRACT The enterotoxigenic and porcine enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (ETEC and PEPEC) strains are agents associated with swine neonatal diarrhea, causing economic losses in swine production.
The main goal of this study was to identify virulence genes of ETEC, verotoxigenic (VTEC) and PEPEC in intestinal strains responsible for swine diseases, by molecular typing using PCR in newborn piglets from an intensive farm system.
Two hundred and sixty seven rectal sw...
