Histopathological findings of the piglets. a BSF0 group. Mild and multifocal mucosal lymphoplasmacytic inflammation (arrow), as well as focal and moderate gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) activation (arrowhead), are observed in the ileum. 5× haematoxylin-eosin stain. b BSF5 group. Stomach shows mild and multifocal mucosal lymphoplasmacytic inflammation (arrow) along with focal and moderate GALT activation (arrowhead). 5× haematoxylin-eosin stain. c BSF10 group. Liver, centrolobular zone. Moderate and multifocal vacuolar degeneration of the hepatocytes (arrowheads) is identified. 20× haematoxylin-eosin stain. d BSF0 group. Moderate and multifocal interstitial lymphoplasmacytic inflammation (arrow) and tubular steatosis (arrowhead) are observed in the kidneys. 10× haematoxylin-eosin stain
