Abstract

Canine Leptospira vaccines contain inactivated strains of pathogenic Leptospira, the causative agents of leptospirosis. For an effective response to vaccination, activation of the innate immune system via pattern recognition receptors such as TLRs is crucial. However, it is not known which TLRs are ...

Abstract

Dogs are asymptomatic chronic carriers of Leptospira spp. and excrete these bacteria in their urine, resulting in environmental contamination and potentially leading to zoonotic transmission. Although a previous study in Sri Lanka detected anti-Leptospira antibodies in companion dogs, the urinary...
