Epidermitis, Exudative, of Swine definition: An acute generalized dermatitis of pigs which occurs from 5 to 35 days of age, characterized by sudden onset, with morbidity of 10 to 90% and mortality of 5 to 90%. The lesions are caused by Staphylococcus hyos but the bacterial agent is unable to penetrate the intact skin. Abrasions on the feet and legs or lacerations on the body frequently precede infection. In acute cases, a vesicular-type virus may be the predisposing factor. The causative organism is inhibited by most antibiotics. (Merck Veterinary Manual, 5th ed)
Swine definition: Any of various animals that constitute the family Suidae and comprise stout-bodied, short-legged omnivorous mammals with thick skin, usually covered with coarse bristles, a rather long mobile snout, and small tail. Included are the genera Babyrousa, Phacochoerus (wart hogs), and Sus, the latter containing the domestic pig (see SUS SCROFA).

Swine, Miniature definition: Genetically developed small pigs for use in biomedical research. There are several strains - Yucatan miniature, Sinclair miniature, and Minnesota miniature.
miniature swine definition: strains of small pigs developed for use in biomedical research.
Minipig definition: A Yucatan, Gottingen, or other pig breed that is bred specifically for its small size. The Minipig weighs between 20-30kg at sexual maturity.

Duroc Pig definition: An older breed of American domestic pig, the Duroc breed is of medium length with a muscular, large-framed body. This pig breed is red-colored with partially drooping ears and is one of the most aggressive breeds of swine.

Hampshire Pig definition: One of the oldest original early American pig strains, the Hampshire pig originated from the Old English breed and was imported to North American in the mid-1800s. The Hampshire pig has black skin and hair covering most of its body with a white portion of skin covering its front limbs and back. The Hampshire pig is one of the larger pig breeds used in biomedical research.
Landrace Pig definition: Developed in Denmark by crossing native pigs with the Large White pig breed. The Landrace pig was imported into the UK in 1949 and disseminated worldwide beginning in the 1950s. This breed is characterized by white skin and the absence of black hair as well as lop ears and a long middle, light forequarter. The Landrace breed is susceptible to Porcine stress syndrome and malignant hyperthermia under anesthetic. This is one of the largest breeds in use in biomedical research.
Hartley Guinea Pig definition: Albino outbred guinea pig belonging to the English (short-haired) breed. The Hartley guinea pig was imported from the Medical Research Council, Millhill, England, to Charles River in 1968 for propagation. The animal is a crepuscular mammalian herbivore that is tailless with short legs and a large head. The Hartley Guinea Pig has a white coat color (acromelanic albino) and red eyes and requires a nutritional source of vitamin C to sustain normal function. The Hartley guinea pig is used as an animal model for studying human diseases and toxins harmful to man, as well as the development of serums and vaccines.
Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome definition: A syndrome characterized by outbreaks of late term abortions, high numbers of stillbirths and mummified or weak newborn piglets, and respiratory disease in young unweaned and weaned pigs. It is caused by PORCINE RESPIRATORY AND REPRODUCTIVE SYNDROME VIRUS. (Radostits et al., Veterinary Medicine, 8th ed, p1048)
Guinea Pig definition: The domesticated guinea pig, Cavia porcellus.
Sus scrofa definition: A species of SWINE, in the family Suidae, comprising a number of subspecies including the domestic pig Sus scrofa domestica.

Gottingen Pig definition: The smallest of the common miniature breeds, this breed is 10-14kg at sexual maturity with a shortened snout and rounded appearance. The Gottingen pig has white skin and hair. It is used in a variety of applications in biomedical research including cardiovascular studies, and its small size makes it an ideal animal model due to its relative ease of handling and smaller housing requirements.
Hanford Pig definition: The largest of the miniature breeds, it reaches 25-40kg at sexual maturity. The Hanford pig is white with an elongated snout and has the largest heart and blood vessels of all pig breeds. It is used in biomedical research, among other things, in the testing of implantable devices in human cardiovascular research.
Dunkin Hartley Guinea Pig definition: Albino outbred guinea pig belonging to the English (short-haired) breed. The Dunkin Hartley guinea pig is a crepuscular mammalian herbivore that is tailless with short legs and a large head. The Dunkin Hartley guinea pig has a white coat color (acromelanic albino) and red eyes and requires a nutritional source of vitamin C to sustain normal function.

Yucatan Pig definition: Originating from Mexico and Central America, this breed has a straight back and no potbelly, short snout, sparse hair coat and medium size ears. The Yucatan pig is slate gray to black in color. Its uses in biomedical research are varied and include diabetes research, cardiovascular research, angiogenesis, and ophthalmological research among others.
