Immunogenicity and Linked Recognition of
Like several other bacterial pathogens,
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 ...
Identification of Dermacentor andersoni saliva proteins that modulate mammalian phagocyte function
Ticks are obligate blood sucking parasites which transmit a wide range of pathogens worldwide including protozoa, bacteria and viruses. Additionally, tick feeding alone may result in anemia, dermatosis and toxin-induced ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
IMMUNIZATION STRATEGIES FOR THE CONTROL OF MANNHEIMIA HAEMOLYTICA PNEUMONIA IN BIGHORN SHEEP
Mannheimia haemolytica is an important pathogen of pneumonia in bighorn sheep (BHS, Ovis canadensis). Leukotoxin is the critical virulence factor of this bacterium. In an earlier study, an experimental vaccine containing ...
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 ...
