Haemophilus parasuis is the causative agent of Glässer’s disease, which was once regarded as a sporadic disease of young, stressed pigs ( Rapp-Gabrielson et al., 2006). However, modern pig production systems have resulted in the emergence of this agent as a major cause of economic loss to the pig industry throughout the world ( Aragon et al., 2012). The emergence of this once sporadic disease has highlighted the need to understand the virulence mechanisms of H. parasuis. A timely review by Drs Mar Costa-Hurtado and Virginia Aragon of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, published in this issue of The Veterinary Journal, provides a comprehensive overview of our current knowledge of the virulence factors of this pathogen ( Costa-Hurtado and Aragon, 2013)...
