Description

SpecLinx-50 by Bimeda is a lincomycin-spectinomycin antibiotic combination originally developed for use in chicks. However, recent research has uncovered it's high effectiveness as an off-label product for swine and the treatment of Mycoplasma hyorhinis and Mycoplasma hyosynoviae.

Mycoplasma hyorhinis is often found as a commensal in the respiratory tract of pigs, and rarely in the skin of humans. It is thought to facilitate and exacerbate the development of diseases such as porcine enzootic pneumonia and porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS).

Rarely, it may cause mycoplasma arthritis, mycoplasmal polyserositis or mycoplasma septicaemia in piglets without the involvement of other bacteria. This presents as polyarthritis or polyserositis.

Mycoplasma hyosynoviae organism is located in the upper respiratory tract nose and tonsils of pigs. It may be present in some herds and cause no clinical signs and yet in others cause severe disease.

Infection with or without disease takes place in the young growing pig from approximately 8 to 30 weeks of age and particularly so in the gilt when first introduced onto a farm, or in the early stages of pregnancy.

It is very uncommon in older sows because they develop a strong immunity resulting from repeated exposure to the organism. Mycoplasma hyosynoviae infects joints and tendon sheaths rather than the respiratory system.
