perinatal exposure to low doses of pcb 153 and pcb 126 affects maternal and neonatal immunity in goat kids.pregnant does (10 goats/group) were dosed orally either with polychlorinated biphenyl (pcb) 153 (98 microg/kg body weight/d) or pcb 126 (ng/kg body weight/d) dissolved in corn oil or with corn oil only (control group) from gestation day (gd) 60 until delivery. an additional group (n = 5) of pregnant does received the synthetic estrogen diethylstilbestrol (des; 0.4 microg/kg body weight/d) by intramuscular injection using the same treatment schedule as for the pcb groups. blood samples for immune ...200616291567
molecular cloning of cd18 of bison, deer and elk, and comparison with that of other ruminants and non-ruminants.pneumonia caused by mannheimia haemolytica is an important disease of cattle, domestic sheep, bighorn sheep and goats. leukotoxin (lkt) produced by m. haemolytica is cytolytic to all leukocyte subsets of these species. lkt utilizes cd18, the beta subunit of beta(2)-integrins, as its functional receptor on leukocytes of these species. cytotoxicity assays revealed that leukocytes from bison, deer, and elk are also susceptible to lkt-induced cytolysis. the availability of cdna encoding cd18 of biso ...201020176404
potential pathogens carried by spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica hispanica) in southern spain.the spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica hispanica) population of southern spain was surveyed for potential pathogens associated with the conjunctiva, external ear canal, as well as reproductive and upper respiratory tracts. we sampled 321 ibex (131 adult males, 100 adult females, and 90 yearlings); these included 271 apparently healthy animals and 50 that were naturally infected with sarcoptes scabiei. a total of 688 bacterial isolates were identified (377 gram-negatives, 225 gram-positives, and 86 my ...200616870855
experimental contact of bighorn sheep (ovis canadensis) with horses and cattle, and comparison of neutrophil sensitivity to pasteurella haemolytica cytotoxins.peripheral blood neutrophils from horses, cattle, and rocky mountain bighorn sheep (ovis canadensis canadensis) were evaluated for susceptibility to cytotoxin-dependent lysis of different biotypes and serotypes of pasteurella haemolytica of domestic sheep, cattle, bighorn sheep, or mountain goat (oreamnos americana) origin utilizing a cytotoxicity assay which measures the degree of bacteria cytotoxin-killing of neutrophils. all isolates of p. haemolytica (biotypes a and t) were noncytotoxic to h ...19969359057
mannheimia haemolytica leukotoxin-induced cytolysis of caprine (capra hircus) leukocytes is mediated by the cd18 subunit of beta2-integrins.mannheimiosis is the major respiratory disease among some ruminants, whereas it is not pathogenic for other mammals, an observation that has been attributed to a specific interaction between mannheimia haemolytica leukotoxin (lkt) and bovine or ovine cd18 subunit of lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (lfa-1) and mac-1. we therefore hypothesized that lkt utilizes cd18 as its receptor on caprine leukocytes as well. we have transiently transfected the beta2-integrins-deficient k-562 cell line ...200818775487
experimental infection of peste des petit ruminant virus and mannheimia haemolytica a2 in goats: immunolocalisation of mannheimia haemolytica antigens.nigerian strain of peste des petit ruminant (ppr) virus and mannheimia haemolytica (mh) biotype a serotype 2, was used successfully to reproduce a concurrent disease in west african dwarf goats. the development of the various pathological features were studied at regular intervals following infection. the acute inflammatory reaction which had developed by day 3 after initial infection was characterised by flooding of the alveoli by neutrophils, oedema, hemorrhage and syncytial cells together wit ...201020617380
a retrospective study of hepatic abscesses in goats: pathological and microbiological examination of 658 goats showed that 17 (2.5%) exhibited hepatic abscesses. the following bacteria were isolated: corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis (58.9%), escherichia coli (11.8%), corynebacterium sp. (11.8%), pasteurella haemolytica (5.9%), proteus sp. (5.9%) and staphylococcus aureus (5.9%). hepatic abscesses occurred more frequently in adult animals. eleven of the 17 goats (64.7%) were older than 12 months of age. four goats (23.5%) were 12 months of age and only two (11.8%) we ...19892920279
how mannheimia haemolytica defeats host defence through a kiss of death mechanism.mannheimia haemolytica induced pneumonias are only observed in goats, sheep and cattle. the bacterium produces several virulence factors,whose principal ones are lipopolysaccharide and leukotoxin. the latter is cytotoxic only for ruminant leukocytes, a phenomenon that is correlated with its ability to bind and interact with the ruminant beta2-integrin lymphocyte function-associated antigen 1. this paper globally reviews all the information available on host-pathogen interactions underlying respi ...200515720968
antimicrobial susceptibility patterns and sensitivity to tulathromycin in goat respiratory bacterial isolates.bacterial pneumonia is a common and often life-threatening respiratory problem in both meat and dairy goats. options for approved antibiotic therapy in goats to combat these bacterial infections are severely limited and frequently drugs must be used in an extra-label manner. tulathromycin, a triamilide macrolide antimicrobial drug shown to be effective against swine and cattle respiratory bacterial agents, has been identified as a potentially useful drug in caprines. the present study was conduc ...201122078276
efficacy of doxycycline in a goat model of pasteurella pneumonia.the clinical efficacy of doxycycline (doxycen, cenavisa, spain), a long-acting preparation, was evaluated for treatment of pasteurella haemolytica infection in 6 goats. one goat was not infected and served as a control. the disease was induced by intratracheal inoculation of 10(7) to 10(9) cfu of p. haemolytica. confirmation of respiratory disease was based on evidence of appropriate clinical signs. before and after initiation of doxycycline treatment on day 10, each goat was examined daily. thr ...19979291074
