reduction in morbidity due to diarrhea in nursing beef calves by use of an inactivated oil-adjuvanted rotavirus-escherichia coli vaccine in the outbreak of neonatal diarrhea occurred among beef calves (2000 animals) from one large argentinian farm in 1985. rotavirus was detected in 78% (106/136) and enterotoxigenic escherichia coli in 1.5% of the samples (2/136) obtained from sick calves. in comparison rotavirus was identified in only 1.6% (1/63) of the samples from clinically healthy calves. the rotavirus strain responsible for the outbreak was characterized as serotype 6 belonging to group a. in the following three years the protec ...19921313621
effect of dietary regimen on rotavirus-escherichia coli weanling diarrhea of piglets.previously, we induced weanling diarrhea in piglets by infecting them with rotavirus followed by hemolytic enteropathogenic escherichia coli. we postulated that rotavirus, by damaging the epithelium of the small intestines, produced an enteroenvironment which favored the selection and growth of enteropathogenic e. coli. furthermore, diet might affect the enteroenvironment and influence the course of the disease. to test this, newly weaned 3-week-old piglets were assigned to one of four dietary r ...19836343425
