Immunogenicity and Linked Recognition of
Like several other bacterial pathogens,
Protective effects of an experimental sporozoite-based immunization strategy against Theileria equi
Theileria equi is a tick-transmitted apicomplexan hemoparasite parasite of equids with a worldwide distribution and a cause of equine piroplasmosis, a World Organization of Animal Health (OIE) reportable disease. Although ...
Growth of Mannheimia haemolytica:Inhibitory agents and putative mechanism of inhibition
Pneumonia is the most important disease of bighorn sheep (BHS). Pathogens detected in pneumonic BHS lungs include Mannheimia haemolytica, Bibersteinia trehalosi, Pasteurella multocida and Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae. Although ...
Factors involved in the proliferation of blaCMY-2 plasmid-bearing Escherichia coli in cattle
Third-generation cephalosporins are a crucial component of the antibiotic arsenal for human and veterinary medicine. Resistance to third-generation cephalosporins is often conveyed by blaCMY-2 plasmids. The prevalence of ...
Immune response of bighorn sheep to Mannheimia haemolytica
Bighorn sheep (BHS; Ovis canadensis) are more susceptible to Mannheimia haemolytica-caused pneumonia, than domestic sheep (DS; Ovis aries). The objective of this study was to elucidate the basis for enhanced susceptibility ...
THE ROLE OF LIPID ANTIGENS IN THE PROTECTION AGAINST RHODOCOCCAL PNEUMONIA
Rhodococcus equi is an actinomycete bacterium that is closely to Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is also an important cause of pneumonia in young horses worldwide. Like M. tuberculosis, R. equi persists within macrophages ...
COMPARATIVE INVESTIGATION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEMS OF TWO OVINE SPECIES (OVIS ARIES AND OVIS CANADENSIS)
Chapter 1 describes the economic and ecologic significance of respiratory disease in domestic sheep (DS; Ovis aries) and bighorn sheep (BHS; Ovis canadensis) and the need for interspecies comparative immune analyses. In ...
ELUCIDATING MECHANISMS FOR PERSISTENT INFECTION BY THE RELAPSING FEVER SPIROCHETE BORRELIA HERMSII
Relapsing fever is a tick-borne bacterial disease caused by a number of species in the genus Borrelia. Persistence is a key component of the lifecycle of relapsing fever Borrelia as it improves the chance for tick acquisition ...
Vaccination of cattle with Escherichia coli O157:H7-derived proteins results in humoral and cellular immune responses but does not confer protection against subsequent challenge
Escherichia coli O157:H7 is an enteric pathogen of animals and humans that colonizes the gastrointestinal tract and can result in deadly sequelae. Cattle are most frequently colonized at the recto-anal junction and are ...
THEILERIA PARVA: IMMUNOPATHOLOGY, CORRELATES OF PROTECTION, AND VACCINE DEVELOPMENT
East Coast Fever (ECF), caused by the apicomplexan parasite, Theileria parva, kills over a million cattle each year in sub-Saharan Africa. Cattle that develop ECF succumb to respiratory failure-induced pulmonary edema; ...
