Technical Note: Autovaccines against mycoplasmas in farm rabbits.

 S. Boucher, L. Nouaille, I. Albizu, R. Baselga


Farm rabbits are affected by respiratory and reproductive disorders that compromise their health and the productivity of the farm. In two earlier papers we highlighted the role of mycoplasmas in these processes and the present article evaluates the usefulness of autovaccines to control mycoplasmosis. On a commercial rabbitry with 800 females, 428 kits were vaccinated, leaving 3,622 as controls. A lower mortality was observed among the vaccinated kits, with a significant (P<0.01) decrease in the presence of lung lesions.
