Abstract

New ideas for diagnostics in clinical parasitology are needed to overcome some of the difficulties experienced in the widespread adoption of detection methods for gastrointestinal parasites in livestock. Here we provide an initial evaluation of the performance of a newly developed automated device...

Abstract

Rift valley fever virus (RVFV) is a causative agent of a viral zoonosis that constitutes a major clinical burden in wild and domestic ruminants. The virus causes major outbreaks in livestock (sheep, goats, cattle and camels) and can be transmitted to humans by contaminated animal products or via...

Abstract

Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) has been used in human and veterinary medicine as a skin testing for evaluating in vivo cell-mediated immune responses (CMIR). Whereas CMIR is a key process to control intracellular pathogens, its value at identifying cattle exposed to the abortigenic...

Abstract

The diagnosis of Johne's Disease by isolating Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis from feces requires 6 months and high-cost reagents, and therefore an indirect technique like ELISA, is often being used to avoid these obstacles. The aim of this work was the production of a rabbit anti-deer...

Abstract

Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), poses a risk of infection for livestock, humans, and wildlife. An interferon (IFN)-γ release assay has been used with tuberculin skin tests to detect bTB; however, infected animals may still be missed. Previous studies have...

Abstract

Bovine mastitis is a major health problem that affects dairy cows and has a negative impact on milk production. The presence of microRNAs in biofluids, such as blood and milk, could play a pivotal role in the detection of bovine mastitis. The purpose of the current study was to determine the levels ...

Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) in small ruminants is a neglected disease despite its major impact on goat and sheep production and the global public health. The awareness of the role of small ruminants in the epidemiology of animal TB has increased in the last two decades, however, there is a lack of...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to estimate the performance of the peptide magnetic separation PCR test (PMS-PCR) for the diagnosis of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) in sub-clinically infected dairy cattle. Twenty-one herds were randomly selected from a source population of 131...

Abstract

Antibody-detecting tests for Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP) have low sensitivity and imperfect specificity for detection of infection. Sensitivity increases as the disease progresses. Aside from infection status and stage of disease, several factors affect test performance. These...

Abstract

Digital dermatitis (DD) is linked to severe lameness, infertility, and decreased milk production in cattle. Early detection of DD provides an improved prognosis for treatment and recovery; however, this is extremely challenging on commercial dairy farms. Computer vision (COMV) models can help...
