Demands for health, performance and welfare in pigs, as well as the desire for consumer protection and reduced antibiotic use, require optimal measures in advance of disease development. This includes, in principle, the use of genetically more resistant lines and breeding animals, whose existence has been proven for a wide range of pathogen-host interactions. In addition, attempts are being made to identify the gene variants responsible for disease resistance in order to force the selection of suitable populations, also using modern biotechnical technics. The present work is intended to provide an overview of the research status achieved in this context and to highlight opportunities and risks for the future.The evaluation of the international literature shows that genetic disease resistance exist in many areas of swine diseases. However, polygenic inheritance, lack of animal models and the influence of environmental factors during evaluation render their implementation in practical breeding programs demanding. This is where modern molecular genetic methods, such as Gene Editing, come into play. Both approaches possess their pros and cons, which are discussed in this paper. The most important infectious diseases in pigs, including general diseases and epizootics, diseases of the respiratory and digestive tract and diseases of the immune system are taken into account.

Abstract (Expand)

Cerebral dyspraxia associated with hemodialysis is a progressive, fatal syndrome. Patients suffer from a combination of psychiatric and neurological signs and symptoms. Psychiatric manifestations include anxiety, depression, paranoid ideation, and a progressive dementia with impaired concentration, decreased memory, personality changes, and hallucinations. Neurological findings include deliberate speech, stuttering, dysarthria, dyspraxia of speech and movement, tremulousness, myoclonic activity, asterixis, and seizures. These symptoms are aggravated during and immediately following dialysis. Patients usually die within 6 months of its onset. The etiology is unknown. Treatment efforts have failed to reverse its course. Recognition of this syndrome is highlighted so that informed, critical decisions can be made as to whether to continue dialysis therapy.
