The aetiological agent of epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE) is still unknown although a bacterial infection seems the most likely hypothesis. In this study, amplification of the V5 and V6 regions of 16SrDNA from four virulent and two non-virulent caecal samples was performed using a pyrosequencing platform. The virulent samples did not group in the same cluster. The bacterial flora identified was both different and richer than the cultivable bacterial flora. These findings highlight the need for biomolecular techniques to identify the aetiological agent of ERE. [less ▲]

The aetiology of epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE) is still unknown despite ten years of continuous research. A putative bacterial aetiology is the basis of current research. The fractionation of the reference inoculum (TEC4) is a major step towards finding the potential bacterial agent(s). In this study, TEC4 was fractionated by different techniques: centrifugation on discontinuous sucrose gradient, cell adherence and chloroform/ethanol treatment. The different fractions were inoculated into SPF rabbits and analyzed with classical bacteriological techniques. ERE was reproduced with two of the six fractions obtained. Four species never previously cultured from TEC were identified in the process but, to date, none of them seems to be the aetiology of ERE. [less ▲]

La pathologie représente un poids économique important en élevage rationnel du lapin de chair. En effet, un quart des lapereaux meurent entre la naissance et la vente. Chez les reproductrices, sur trois femelles entrant dans une bande, une meurt avant la 3ème mise bas, une autre est réformée pour cause de performances insuffisantes (infertilité) ou problème sanitaire, une seule assure une production. Deux syndromes principaux sont classiquement identifiés chez le lapin : le syndrome respiratoire qui domine chez les adultes et le syndrome digestif, plus fréquent chez les lapins en croissance. Dans cette synthèse nous ferons le point sur les principales maladies infectieuses pouvant être rencontrées dans les élevages rationnels et sur les recherches développées au cours de ces dernières années concernant les agents étiologiques impliqués.
