Costing the morbidity and mortality consequences of zoonoses using health-adjusted life years
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2015)
Governments are routinely involved in the biosecurity of agricultural and food imports and exports. This involves controlling the complex ongoing threat of the broad range of zoonoses: endemic, exotic and newly emerging. ...
Seroprevalence and Risk Factors for Taenia solium Cysticercosis in Rural Pigs of Northern Peru
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2012)
Taenia solium is a cestode parasite that causes cysticercosis in both humans and pigs. A serological survey was undertaken to assess the seroprevalence and risk factors associated with porcine cysticercosis in the rural ...
Did transmission of Helicobacter pylori from humans cause a disease outbreak in a colony of Stripe-faced Dunnarts (Sminthopsis macroura)?
(BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2011-02-07)
Since the discovery that Helicobacter pylori causes a range of pathologies in the stomachs of infected humans, it has become apparent that Helicobacters are found in a diverse range of animal species where they are frequently ...

(SOC GENERAL MICROBIOLOGY, 2003-09-01)
The complete genome of Mycoplasma gallisepticum strain R(low) has been sequenced. The genome is composed of 996,422 bp with an overall G+C content of 31 mol%. It contains 742 putative coding DNA sequences (CDSs), representing ...
Development and Host Compatibility of Plasmids for Two Important Ruminant Pathogens, Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma agalactiae
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2015-03-06)
Mycoplasma bovis is a cause of pneumonia, mastitis, arthritis and otitis media in cattle throughout the world. However, despite its clinical significance, there is a paucity of tools to genetically manipulate it, impeding ...
Endothelial Dysfunction in an Ovine Model of Collagen-Induced Arthritis
Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) induces systemic inflammation, producing a range of co-morbidities including cardiovascular disease. An early vascular change is endothelial dysfunction, characterized by reduced ...
The role of the NTPDase enzyme family in parasites: what do we know, and where to from here?
(CAMBRIDGE UNIV PRESS, 2012-07-01)
Nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolases (NTPDases, GDA1_CD39 protein superfamily) play a diverse range of roles in a number of eukaryotic organisms. In humans NTPDases function in regulating the inflammatory and immune ...
The MUC1 mucin specifically inhibits activation of the NLRP3 inflammasome
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2016-04-01)
MUC1 is a cell membrane-associated mucin, expressed ubiquitously on the mucosal epithelia as well as by immune cells, that limits the inflammatory response to multiple pathogens. We have recently shown that MUC1 controls ...
