Abstract

Although prevalent, the exact impact of infectious diseases on reproductive failures remains to be determined. Among them, leptospirosis has commonly been reported as cause of abortions on outbreaks. Nevertheless, the majority of the animals present a chronic, silent form of the disease, which is...

Abstract

Leptospirosis is a cosmopolitan infectious disease that causes severe reproductive disorders in cattle, especially those related to abortion. This disease has rodents as main reservoirs; however, cattle are responsible for maintenance of the disease. Thus, the aim of this study was to identify the...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to describe the strategies of the control of an outbreak of leptospiral infection in dairy cattle in Maranhão State, Northeastern Brazil. In the period from January to July 2015, 18 (17%) out of 106 cows presented abortion, six (5.7%) stillbirth, and 12 (11.3%)...

AbstractFull Text

The present study investigated the occurrence of Leptospira spp. infection in cattle, feral cats and rodents in the Fernando de Noronha Island, Brazil. Blood samples were collected from 88 cattle, 200 feral cats and 150 rodents and the sera were screened by MAT (serogroups: Australis, Autumnalis,...

Abstract

Bovine leptospirosis causes substantial reproductive failure in cattle, mainly due to infections with serovar (sv) Hardjo infection. Notwithstanding, other serovars from the serogroup (sg) Sejroe could also have important roles in bovine leptospirosis. The objective was to investigate genetic...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify Leptospira in urine samples of cattle by direct sequencing of the secY gene. The validity of this approach was assessed using ten Leptospira strains obtained from cattle in Brazil and 77 DNA samples previously extracted from cattle urine, that were positive by...

AbstractFull Text

For a long time, it has been stated that urine leptospiral shedding is intermittent, which was observed primarily by culturing. However, culturing presents serious limitations, mainly low sensitivity, and failure on detection of leptospires cannot be neglected. PCR presents several advantages,...

Abstract

Cases of hemolytic anemia in beef cattle in an extensive breeding system in Mato Grosso and Rondônia have been monitored since 2008. The affected animals presented weakness, pale or icteric mucosas, blackened urine, prostration and anorexia. The outcome of these cases often is death, principally if ...
