Abstract

To investigate the Schmallenberg virus (SBV) in Turkey, 116 aborted fetuses from sheep (60), goats (12), and cattle (44) collected from different regions of Turkey were analyzed by real-time PCR. SBV RNA was detected in aborted fetuses of sheep and cattle from the Marmara region, which borders the...

Abstract

Background: In the presented study we investigated the development of the humoral immune response against LSDV during the process of re-vaccination of cattle over a time span of 5 months. In addition, the performance of different serological techniques for antibody detection against LSDV was...

Abstract

Competitive-ELISA (c-ELISA) is the most widely used serological test for the detection of Bluetongue virus (BTV) viral protein 7 (VP7) antibodies (Ab). However, these BTV c-ELISAs cannot to distinguish between IgG and IgM. IgM Ab are generated shortly after the primary immune response against an...

Abstract

Bluetongue virus (BTV) hitherto consisted of 26 recognized serotypes, of which all except BTV-26 are primarily transmitted by certain species of Culicoides biting midges. Three variants of an additional 27th bluetongue virus serotype (BTV-27v01-v03) were recently detected in asymptomatic goats in...

Abstract

Encephalitis can be caused by several infectious agents, including bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. In many cases, the causative agent cannot be identified, because the pathogens are unknown or detection methods are not routinely available. In our case, a 15-month-old cow developed central...

Abstract

In analogy to the related Akabane virus, transmission of Schmallenberg virus (SBV) by contaminated semen has primarily been considered negligible. However, the potential economic consequences for stock-bull breeders prompted the investigation of reliable diagnostic methods for SBV-RNA detection in...

Abstract

Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a contagious viral disease of sheep and goats common in Africa and Asia. Its high morbidity and mortality has a devastating impact on agriculture in developing countries. As an example, an Asian lineage IV strain of PPRV was responsible for mass fatalities among...

Abstract

Two important components of control programs for Bovine herpesvirus type 1 (BoHV-1), a major pathogen of cattle, are the detection of outbreaks and vaccination with glycoprotein E (gE)-deleted marker vaccines. In addition to serology, rapid and accurate investigation of BoHV-1 and genetic...

Abstract

A novel orthobunyavirus was first detected in German dairy cows in autumn 2011 and was subsequently found in the brains of malformed lambs, kids and calves in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Italy, Great Britain, Luxembourg and Spain. For rapid detection of this novel virus, named...

Abstract

Three commercial anabolic preparations consisting of 17 beta -oestradiol plus testosterone, oestradiol plus trenbolone, or zeranol were implanted in female calves and the urinary oestrogens subsequently assayed by a radio receptor test. Another test involved the subcutaneous injection of a calf...
