Pathogenesis of infectious and parasitic diseases for monogastrics et ruminants (PIPAE)

Understanding the components of livestock health: measuring health status, identifying determinants and indicators.

Context and Issues

  • Massive and non-rational use of anthelmintics in dairy cattle    
  • Rationalization of the use of antibiotics


  • Phenotyping of animal health by combining numerous indicators of variable nature
  • Thorough understanding of the mechanisms that determine health
  • Analysis and understanding of interactions between respiratory pathogens
  • Predictive indicators of health status and susceptibility to diseases  

Target species

  • Cattle
  • Pigs

Application fields

  • Parasitism in dairy cattle
  • Respiratory diseases in suckling young cattle
  • Viral respiratory co-infections in porcine species
  • Robustness of the pig   

Expertise and skills

  • Parasitology
  • Epidemiology
  • Immunology
  • Infectiology
  • Virology
  • Expertise and clinical skills

Current projects

  • IResPig : Immune response in the context of co-infections with respiratory pathogens in pigs
  • SANT'Innov : Innovation in livestock products to reconcile greening and competitiveness: animal health perspective
