Abstract

This publication contains the papers presented at a seminar on atrophic rhinitis in pigs held in Copenhagen 25th-26th May, 1983 under the auspices of the programme for the Coordination of Agricultural Research of the Commission of the European Communities. Atrophic rhinitis is a classic disease in igs, but general agreement about its definition has not been obtained. The disease in its severe form is economically important and continuously causes economic loss to pig production throughout the world, especially under intensive husbandry systems. The purpose of the seminar was to summarize available knowledge on the disease and particularly to present recent achievements concerning its aetiology and pathogenesis. The time seemed appropriate for bringing a group of European research workers together in order to stimulate future work aiming at a better understanding of the complex mechanisms behind the development of atrophic rhinitis, which might again lead to better strategies for control.
