Spirochaetes are a phylum of corkscrew-shaped bacteria that cause diseases in humans and animals, like syphilis in humans, swine dysentery (diarrhea) in pigs, and digital dermatitis (Mortellaro hoof disease) in cattle.
During the 8th conference on Spirochaetal infections in animals and humans, spirochete researchers from all over the world will gather online to discuss the latest developments in this field.
Dr Lammers of Intracare contributes with two oral presentations on our non-antibiotic veterinary medicinal products against spirochaetal diseases.
On Thursday September 2nd he will present the research behind the Intra Hoof-fit program during the Treponema foot session in a presentation entitled “The non-antibiotic treatment and prevention of Treponema-associated hoof diseases in dairy cattle.”
During the Antimicrobial resistance in Brachyspira session on Friday he will show the clinical trial data behind our non-antibiotic Intra Dysovinol in “Treatment of clinical Brachyspira hyodysenteriae infections with chelated zinc in a pig infection model and under field conditions.”
