Lawsonia intracellularis is a bacteria that causes proliferative enteropathy in pigs. The goal of this study is to aid in the development of a novel and more effective vaccine that will allow for differentiation between infected and vaccinated animals, as well as reducing shedding. This vaccine will have numerous positive impacts including decreased mortality, reduced pathogen shedding and reduced usage of antibiotics.
