Table 8 Influence on blood parameters of the M. suis status, gestation rank and litter size. A model is built for each outcome. For binary predictors (M. suis status and gestation rank), a positive coefficient means that the risk increases when the predictor is true. For Total-Born (TB), a positive coefficient means that the risk increases for each additional piglet

From: Frequency of infection with Mycoplasma suis in gestating sows using qPCR on ten commercial French herds, and impact of the infection on clinical, haematological and biochemical parameters
