Abstract

Background: Serum antibody detection has potential as a complementary diagnostic tool in animal tuberculosis (TB) control, particularly in multi-host systems. The objective of the present study was to assess the specificity (Sp) of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) based on the new...

Abstract

Feline aelurostrongylosis, caused by the metastrongylid nematode Aelurostrongylus abstrusus, is an underestimated respiratory parasitosis. Its diagnosis currently mainly relies on the isolation of first stage larvae from fresh faecal samples. The aim of our study was to develop a serological test...

Abstract

Coxiella burnetii is the etiologic agent of Q fever. It may occur as two different morphological forms, a large cell variant (LCV) and a small cell variant (SCV). The SCV is characterized by unique resistance to physical and chemical factors and may survive in the environment for many months. The...

Abstract

Serological tests for Coxiella burnetii (the causative agent of Q fever) antibodies are usually based on enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) although this method is not thoroughly evaluated. The objective of this study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity of an ELISA for detection ...

Abstract

Specialised veal producers that purchase and raise calves from several dairy herds are potentially at high risk of delivering Salmonella-infected animals to slaughter. However, the true prevalence of Salmonella infected veal producing herds and the prevalence of infected calves delivered to...

AbstractFull Text

Background: Bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) is an important pathogen in cattle. The ability of the virus to cross the placenta during early pregnancy can result in the birth of persistently infected (PI) calves. These calves shed the virus during their entire lifespan and are the key...

Abstract

A milk and a serum ELISA for detection of antibodies against Mycobacterium avium ssp. paratuberculosis (MAP) were evaluated against the complement-fixation test (CFT) and culture of faecal samples from 580 cows collected between August 1996 and December 1996. Milk and serum were obtained...

Abstract

Several studies have shown a clear correlation between insufficient uptake of maternal derived antibodies, failure of passive transfer (FPT), and health problems among newborn calves. Therefore there is a need for objective measurement of the immune status of newborn calves. Several quick tests are ...

Abstract

Suggested therapy protocols for ehrlichiosis in Swedish dogs, cats, horses, cattle and sheep are described based on a review of published studies as well as on unpublished clinical data. The new, unnamed, Ehrlichia species isolated and described from Swedish dogs, cats and horses is similar to, but ...

Abstract

To detect bovine diarrhoea virus (BDV)-specific antibodies in cattle serum, plasma and bulk milk, a simple, reliable and rapid blocking ELISA (Ceditest) was developed using 2 monoclonal antibodies (WB112 and WB103) directed to different highly conserved epitopes on the non-structural peptide NS3 of ...
