The changes of concentration of serum haptoglobin, body temperature, hematological result and antibody titers were compared in pigs given intravenously injection of E rhusiopathiae and control pigs. Pigs administered with E rhusiopathiae injections showed acute septicemia and arthritis. Also, statistically significant changes observed in the total white cell counts and body temperature. An increased haptoglobin concentration in serum was detected after E rhusiopathiae infection, but not during antibiotics treatment. The results indicated that measurement of the concentration of serum haptoglobin may be useful in the early diagnosis of infectious disease, such as Erysipelas.
