Abstract

Septicaemia is the main cause of hospitalization and mortality amongst foals in the neonatal period (i.e. <1 week of age). In septicaemia, bacteria present in the blood and lipopolysaccharide or endotoxin components of bacteria give rise to an uncontrolled inflammatory reaction. Three main cytokines are liberated, tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interleukin-1 (IL-1) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). TNF-α, IL-1 and IL-6 act synergistically and are responsible for most clinical symptoms. In neonates, most infections are caused by opportunistic pathogenic bacteria arising from the genital tracts of mares, the digestive system, skin or the environment. These infections may be acquired in utero, during birth or after birth. The digestive and respiratory tracts, together with the umbilical cord, are the main routes of entry for bacteria. Gram negative bacteria account for...
