Avian viral surveillance in Victoria, Australia, and detection of two novel avian herpesviruses
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2018-03-23)
Viruses in avian hosts can pose threats to avian health and some have zoonotic potential. Hospitals that provide veterinary care for avian patients may serve as a site of exposure of other birds and human staff in the ...
Vaccine efficacy against Indonesian Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1: systematic review and meta-analysis
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2017-09-05)
Indonesia has implemented multiple strategies to control Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza H5N1 (HPAI/H5N1), including the licensure and use of multiple vaccine formulations. The continuous drift of Indonesian HPAI/H5N1 ...
Description of Cloacina atthis sp. nov. from the stomach of the euro (Macropus robustus) (Marsupialia: Macropodidae) from Western Australia based on morphological and molecular criteria
A new species of strongyloid nematode from the genus Cloacina (Chabertiidae: Cloacininae) is described from the stomach of the hill kangaroo or euro (Macropus robustus) (Marsupialia: Macropodidae) from Western Australia. ...
Illthrift in suckling lambs secondary to umbilical infections and possible implication of cryptosporidiosis as a risk factor.
Illthrift was observed in 20/60 lambs aged 40-45 days in a dairy sheep flock in Greece. Cryptosporidiosis had been diagnosed and successfully treated with halofuginone lactate a month earlier. Parasitological examinations ...
EIMERIA TAGGARTI N. SP., A NOVEL COCCIDIAN (APICOMPLEXA: EIMERIORINA) IN THE PROSTATE OF AN ANTECHINUS FLAVIPES
(AMER SOC PARASITOLOGISTS, 2018-02-01)
A novel coccidian species was discovered in the prostate of an Antechinus flavipes (yellow-footed antechinus) in South Australia during the period of postmating male antechinus immunosuppression and mortality. This novel ...
Complete genome sequence of the avian pathogenic Escherichia coli strain APEC O78.
Colibacillosis, caused by avian pathogenic Escherichia coli (APEC), is a significant disease, causing extensive animal and financial losses globally. Because of the significance of this disease, more knowledge is needed ...
Comparative Metabolomics of Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma gallisepticum Reveals Fundamental Differences in Active Metabolic Pathways and Suggests Novel Gene Annotations
(AMER SOC MICROBIOLOGY, 2017-09-01)
Mycoplasmas are simple, but successful parasites that have the smallest genome of any free-living cell and are thought to have a highly streamlined cellular metabolism. Here, we have undertaken a detailed metabolomic ...
Natural recombination in alphaherpesviruses: Insights into viral evolution through full genome sequencing and sequence analysis
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2017-04-01)
Recombination in alphaherpesviruses was first described more than sixty years ago. Since then, different techniques have been used to detect recombination in natural (field) and experimental settings. Over the last ten ...
