LP14494-6 Brachyspira sp
Several species of the gram-negative spirochete Brachyspira can cause swine dysentery (SD) including B. hyodysenteriae, B. intermedia, B. innocens, B. murdochii, B. aalborgi, B. alvinipulli, B. suanatina, and a provisional species called Brachyspira hampsonii. B. hyodysenteriae, B. suanatina, and B. hampsonii cause a severe mucohaemorrhagic colitis found mainly in grower and finisher pigs. Brachyspira that are weakly heamolytic causing a mild colitis include B. murdochii, B. intermedia, B. aalborgi, and B. alvinipulli in pigs, chickens and humans. Transmission of Brachyspira sp can occur in several ways including: pigs that have subclinical infection; infection from birds or feral animals that act as potential reservoirs; reduced immunity in a herd; routine diagnostic and control measures are not adhered to; and environmental changes such as a change in diet, co-infections and other stresses that increase norepinephrine levels in the gut that can result in the growth and colonization of some species of Brachyspira. Diagnoses of Brachyspira species are primarily made using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test and/or immune staining.[PMID: 11015363] [https://porcinehealthmanagement.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40813-015-0002-1] [PMID: 27629903] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
