Abstract

A total of 50 Actinobacillus suis isolates were studied for their biochemical and antigenic characteristics. Of them, 40 isolates originated from different tissues of diseased pigs, and the other ten isolates were from horses with respiratory problems. There was no major biochemical difference among equine and porcine A. suis isolates. Results of tube agglutination tests showed that porcines isolates were antigenically homogeneous while equine isolates were heterogeneous.
