Abstract

A systematic review was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of vaccination to reduce Salmonella prevalence in market weight finisher swine. To identify relevant studies, online databases and selected conference proceedings were searched. Two reviewers independently assessed the relevance screening and methodological quality of studies. Data of characteristics of study population, intervention, outcome, statistical analysis, and results were extracted. Four clinical trials and 21 challenge studies were identified for the final review as they described vaccination to reduce Salmonella in swine Present evidence suggests that vaccination is associated with reduced Salmonella prevalence in swine.
