diseases of guinea-pigs.information on diseases of guinea-pigs is generally available in research institutes and breeding establishments. when dealing with an individual patient it is tempting to extrapolate from this pool of information, without realising that a number of factors can affect the disease situation in a colony which need not apply to the individual animal kept as a pet--or vice versa. thus diseases may appear as an explosive outbreak in a group of cavies kept under uniform conditions while a single anima ...1976820055

[the temperature-induced early and late development of resistance to the bactericidal action of blood serum in yersinia pseudotuberculosis].y. pseudotuberculosis strains were grown at 6 degrees-8 degrees c and then incubated at 37 degrees c. 3-6 hours later serum resistance appeared in the strains having plasmid virulence and producing outer membrane polypeptide with a molecular weight of 120 kd, known as p1. 10-12 hours later serum resistance appeared in the strain having the virulence plasmid, but not producing p1, as well as in strains in which the plasmid was eliminated.19921414100

enteritis in sheep, goats and pigs due to yersinia pseudotuberculosis infection.the features of naturally occurring yersinia pseudotuberculosis serotype iii infections in 16 sheep, one goat and 3 pigs, and y. pseudotuberculosis serotype i infections in 3 goats, are described. affected animals usually had diarrhoea and were in poor condition or emaciated. a number were moribund or dead when submitted for necropsy. thickening of the caecal and colonic mucosa was the only gross lesion attributable to y. pseudotuberculosis infection, with liver or other visceral abscesses not b ...19902098020
special features of distribution of yersinia pseudotuberculosis in japan.the incidence of yersinia pseudotuberculosis isolation from humans, animals, water, and pork in japan is presented on the basis of a review of the literature and serotyping of 633 strains referred to our laboratory. most of the strains belonged to serogroup 4b, followed in frequency of isolation by serogroups 3, 1b, 5b, 5a, and the others, whereas serogroup 1a has not been detected. although strains were isolated from 11 species of animals, none were isolated from birds.19892656752
[campylobacter jejuni infections in slaughterhouse workers].complement fixing (c.f.) antibodies to campylobacter jejuni were detected in 83 slaughterhouse workers and 83 blood donors. workers were aged 18-65 years (mean, 41.7 +/- 12.3) and had worked in the slaughterhouse for 2-40 years (mean, 17.5 +/- 5.1). c.f. antibodies were detected according to mosimann's method and by including five antigens: campylobacter jejuni, yersinia enterocolitica types 03 and 09, yersinia pseudotuberculosis and brucella. positive titers were found in 12.1% of workers and i ...19883154982
