Abstract

Mycoplasma agalactiae (Ma) is the main causative agent of ovine contagious agalactia, which is a serious disease of small ruminants. In endemic areas, its most common clinical situation consists of chronically infected herds, and asymptomatic infected individuals represent an epidemiological risk...

Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to assess the presence of Mycoplasma agalactiae (Ma), the main causative agent of ovine contagious agalactia (CA), in semen of naturally infected rams. Therefore, semen samples from 167 rams residing in three different artificial insemination (AI) centers of a...

AbstractFull Text

Recent results in goat male populations pointing to the real risk of their participation in the transmission of mycoplasmoses. New studies are needed to clarify the epidemiological role played by the rams as carriers of these bacteria. This study was designed to detect the presence of Mycoplasma...

AbstractFull Text

To know the status of Mycoplasma spp. infections in the herds of the "Asociación Española de Criadores de la Cabra Malagueña (CABRAMA), we designed an epidemiology surveillance program based on the study of: (1) the health status of the herds (by microbiological and PCR procedures conducted to...

Abstract

The presence of goat males carriers of the main causal agents of contagious agalactia, Mycoplasma agalactiae (Ma) and Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri (Mmc), is a high risk factor for the spread of the infection in artificial insemination centres. The present study was designed to assess the...

Abstract

Many goat artificial insemination (AI) centers in Spain have adopted new measures to control contagious agalactia (CA). To avoid the introduction of male goats carrying mycoplasma organisms subclinically in their external ear canal (auricular carriers) in these centers, two ear swabs and a blood...

Abstract

Male goats admitted to artificial insemination centres come from herds that have shown no clinical symptoms of contagious agalactia (CA) for the last 6 mo. However, prior reports suggest that this control measure may not be completely effective. This study was designed to detect the presence of...

Abstract

Contagious agalactia affects goats and is caused by several species of mycoplasma including Mycoplasma agalactiae and Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. capri (Mmc). Male goats, latently infected with M. agalactiae and Mmc, were identified at a dairy goat breeding artificial insemination centre. In three...

Abstract

Contagious agalactia (CA) is among the most significant diseases affecting small ruminant populations in Mediterranean countries. This study was designed to detect the excretion in semen of CA-causing mycoplasmas in goats (Capra hircus) reared in Spain, where the disease is considered endemic....
