Endotoxins

Of special interest to pig farmers is the involvement of endotoxins in, for example, the mastitis-metritis-agalactia complex in sows or the sudden death syndrome in piglets. These are just two examples of endotoxin-associated diseases which can cause financial losses and more work for farmers.

However, endotoxins do not cause diseases independently, except in the case of septic infections. Rather, they represent the consequence of an underlying illness or a “system overload”.
