Transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus induces neutralizing antibodies when virulent or attenuated (Bohl, 1981). In contrast, efective swine protection is only induced by virulent strains of the virus (Moxley and Olson, 1986), probably because these strains induce IgA or other serum factors that transfer protection to newborn littermates (Aynaud et al., 1986).
