Abstract

Shiga toxigenicity examination was carried out on about 57 isolates of enterotoxaemic Escherichia coli from piglets with edema disease on nine farms. As a result, high pathogenic strains producing a large quantity of shiga toxins was detected from piglets on two farms. There were no correlations among the toxigenicity of isolates, serotypes and long-term edema disease outbreak farms.
