Abstract

Antimicrobial resistance is primarily a problem in human medicine but there are unquantified links of transmission in both directions between animal and human populations. Quantitative assessment of the costs and benefits of reduced antimicrobial usage in livestock requires robust quantification of ...

AbstractFull Text

Since two years, low levels of Prednisolone have been reported in bovine urine by a number of laboratories in EU Member states. Concentrations vary but are reported to be below approximately 3 microgram/liter. The mechanism of formation of Prednisolone was investigated. Conversion of Cortisol by...

Abstract

Traditional methods for the diagnosis of parasitic helminth infections of livestock have a number of limitations, such as the inability to distinguish mixed-species infections, a heavy reliance on technical experience and also sub-sampling errors. Some of these limitations may be overcome through...

Abstract

The targeting of mcrA or 16S rRNA genes by quantitative PCR (qPCR) has become the dominant method for quantifying methanogens in rumen. There are considerable discrepancies between estimates based on different primer sets, and the literature is equivocal about the relationship with methane...

Abstract

In several short-term studies, genetically modified (GM) plants registered in the EU were considered as safe. However, possible effects of a long-term feeding have not been studied. Hence, 36 lactating Simmental cows were fed on GM maize MON810 or on the isogenic counterpart for 24 months. Samples...

AbstractFull Text

In the field of molecular diagnostics, there is a lack of high-yield extraction methods for pure mycobacterial DNA from complex matrices like faeces. Therefore, we have developed a new, high-yield DNA extraction method combined with quantitative real-time PCR (HYDEqPCR) for amplification of...

AbstractFull Text

Prednisolone and methylprednisolone are synthetic glucocorticoids widely used in veterinary medicine for their anti-inflammatory activities. Besides, these compounds have been used as growth promoters in cattle. In order to protect the consumer against the potential harmful residues present in the...
