biological properties of a canine distemper virus isolate associated with demyelinating encephalomyelitis.a canine distemper virus (cdv), designated r252, originally recovered from a dog with demyelinating encephalomyelitis was shown to reproduce this disease in gnotobiotic dogs with a high incidence as compared to other cdv strains, which produced an acute fatal infection. in this investigation, r252 was propagated for the first time in vero cells and compared to two known strains of cdv, snyder-hill (sh) and onderstepoort (ond). the results of this study revealed that intracellular r252 accumulate ...197547310
newer knowledge in comparative virology--its contribution to human health other comparative sciences, and despite its recent beginning comparative virology has already contributed useful applications and observations to human health research. teachings derived from the study of marek's disease found application in that of burkitt's lymphoma, and may lead to a possible vaccine against the human disease. equally useful information came from the study of canine distemper in the development of a chorio-allantoic membrane attenuated measles vaccine, and in our knowled ...1975167504
virus infection in demyelinating diseases.several animal and human demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system (cns) are associated with rna or dna viruses. these viruses infect cns cells lytically or persistently. they mainly belong to the group of envelope viruses which derive their envelope partly from the host cell membrane. the process of virus release may result in the appearance of new antigens of virus-infected cells or the incorporation of cell membrane material into the viral envelope. these changes may lead to an imm ...1978211825
mechanisms of heterotypic immunity against canine distemper.hep-2 cells infected with measles virus (mv) for as short as 6 h became refractory to superinfection with canine distemper virus (cdv) but not to vesicular stomatitis virus (vsv). the exact mechanism of such interference is unknown but probably occurs after virus attachment and penetration. these results verify the suggestion that virus interference may be a mechanism of heterotypic protection against canine distemper.1979226395
immunofluorescence studies of canine distemper encephalitis on paraffin-embedded tissue.a paraffin-embedding technique for fluorescent antibody studies of canine distemper encephalitis was developed. specific fluorescence was demonstrated in all brain tissue from dogs with canine distemper, and when compared with tissue on cryostat sections, the paraffin-embedded tissue showed superior preservation of tissue architecture. the preservation of viral antigen was good, and the appearance of fluorescence in gray- and white-matter lesions was described. in gray matter, extensive fluoresc ...1978352204
neutralizing antibodies to canine distemper and measles virus in multiple sclerosis.serum neutralizing antibody to canine distemper virus (cdv) was measured in 142 patients with multiple sclerosis (ms), an equal number of age and sex-matched normal controls, and 75 patients with other neurological disorders. an elevated antibody titer was found in the ms population compared to controls. measles-neutralizing antibody was also found to be elevated in 128 patients with ms. the mean ratio of measles to cdv antibody was similar in the control and ms groups, but a wide range of measl ...1979438844
early events in canine distemper demyelinating encephalomyelitis.the early neuropathological development of demyelinating canine distemper encephalomyelitis (cde) was studied in spf dogs. neural tissues were examined up to 30 days post infection (pi). three phases of activity were observed. the primary event (first observed 8 days pi) was a nonsuppurative encephalomyelitis associated with the initiation of central nervous system (cns) infection by virus-laden lymphocytes. at 24 days pi noninflammatory demyelination occurred in well defined, subependymal foci. ...1979452851

canine distemper virus increases procoagulant activity of macrophages.inflammatory demyelination in canine distemper has been proposed to be due to a "bystander" mechanism, in which macrophages play an important role. in the present work we studied whether infection of macrophages by canine distemper virus (cdv) results in changes of macrophage functions, including fc receptor-dependent and -independent phagocytosis, release of reactive oxygen species (ros), and procoagulant activity (pca). as a source of macrophages, dog bone marrow cells were seeded in teflon ba ...19921519355
correlation between humoral immune responses and presence of virus in the cns in dogs experimentally infected with canine distemper virus.the role of the humoral immune response in clearance or prevention of canine distemper viral encephalitis of dogs infected with a virulent strain of canine distemper virus has been evaluated. dogs that have demyelinating lesions, cdv proteins and infectious virus in their brains demonstrate an impaired humoral immune response. in dogs that recover from infection and contain no demyelinating lesions, viral proteins or infectious virus in the brain, antibodies to the internal proteins of cdv are o ...19911759903
comparison of in vitro replication and cytopathology caused by strains of canine distemper virus of vaccine and field origin.three biological properties of canine distemper virus were examined to determine if any would consistently differentiate field from vaccine strains of the virus. the properties were the ability to (1) infect macrophages and epithelial cells, (2) produce distinct cytopathologic effect in alveolar and peritoneal macrophages and vero cells, and (3) produce pocks on the chorioallantoic membrane of embryonated chicken eggs. four vaccine strains and 5 field isolates were used in the study. the 5 field ...19911892930
analysis of antigenic differences between sixteen phocine distemper virus isolates and other morbilliviruses.monoclonal antibodies against a phocine morbillivirus isolate (pdv 2558/han 88) were able to discriminate sixteen pdv isolates from any other morbillivirus species providing further evidence that pdv should be regarded a new species in the morbillivirus genus.19912069507
detection of canine distemper viral antigen in formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissue of a fitch (mustela putorius), using an immunoperoxidase technique.the present study describes how a naturally infected fitch (mustela putorius) caused an outbreak of canine distemper in a colony of insufficiently vaccinated dogs. the detection of canine distemper virus (cdv) on paraffin sections of different organs of the fitch and one of the dead dogs was achieved using a monoclonal antibody against the nucleocapsid protein (np) of cdv and the avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (abc) technique.19902178907
mass mortality in seals caused by a newly discovered morbillivirus.during a recent disease outbreak among harbour seals (phoca vitulina) in the north and baltic seas, more than 17,000 animals have died. the clinical symptoms and pathological findings were similar to those of distemper in dogs. based on a seroepizootiological study, using a canine distemper virus (cdv) neutralization assay, it was shown that cdv or a closely related morbillivirus (phocid distemper virus-pdv) was the primary cause of the disease. the virus was isolated in cell culture from the or ...19902205971

growth of canine distemper virus in cultured astrocytes: relationship to in vivo persistence and disease.canine distemper virus (cdv) causes an encephalomyelitis in dogs which varies with the viral strain. the cdv cornell a75-17 strain produces a delayed, subacute to chronic, demyelinating cns disease. in contrast, the snyder hill (cdv-sh) strain-associated neurological disease is more acute in onset, is usually non-demyelinating and primarily produces lesions in the gray matter. in these studies we describe the effects of these two virulent and one avirulent cdv strain, rockborn (cdv-ro), on astro ...19902333034
humoral immune responses in seals infected by phocine distemper virus.recently the isolation and characterisation of a morbillivirus which caused high mortality in common seals (phoca vitulina) in 1988 have been reported. because of the clinical and pathological similarity of the disease in seals to that of distemper in dogs, the name phocine distemper virus (pdv) has been proposed. there are marked differences in the virus-induced proteins of pdv compared to other morbilliviruses and the humoral immune response of moribund and dead seals to pdv was restricted to ...19902382048
vaccine-associated canine distemper infection in a litter of african hunting dogs (lycaon pictus).four, 57 days old, african hunting dog puppies (lycaon pictus) from one litter died within three weeks following vaccination with modified-live canine distemper virus (cdv) and killed canine adenovirus type 1, canine parvovirus and leptospira icterohemorrhagiae and canicola. 18 days post vaccination, the animals developed neurologic disease characterized by episodes of grand mal seizures and circling. macroscopic, histological and immunohistochemical studies revealed acute systemic cdv infection ...19902385981
antiserum raised in pigs against canine distemper virus and its utility in diagnostic procedures for morbillivirus infections (canine distemper, phocine distemper, rinderpest).antiserum against canine distemper virus (cdv) was raised in pigs by intranasal inoculation with cdv strains cnd65 and rockborn. immunoglobulin fractions were conjugated with horseradish peroxidase. peroxidase-conjugated anti-cdv immunoglobulin preparations were used for the detection and titration of cdv, seal-derived (phocine) distemper virus (pdv) and rinderpest virus (rpv) in vero cell cultures. for the detection and titration of corresponding neutralizing antibodies a direct neutralizing pe ...19902396484
demyelinating canine distemper encephalomyelitis: measurement of myelin basic protein in cerebrospinal fluid.beagle dogs were experimentally infected with the cornell a75-17 strain of canine distemper virus. at three time points post-infection (pi), immunoreactive myelin basic protein (mbp) was measured in cerebrospinal fluid (csf). levels were correlated with neuropathological findings, interferon in csf and virus isolation from the brain. csf from animals inoculated with cornell a75-17 strain often showed detectable immunoreactive mbp late in the disease course. as anticipated from earlier morphologi ...19872434527

generation of multinucleated osteoclast-like cells from canine bone marrow: effects of canine distemper virus.recent evidence has implicated canine distemper virus (cdv) as a possible aetiologic agent in paget's disease of bone and the canine bone disorder, metaphyseal osteopathy. we have therefore examined the effects of cdv on the formation of multinucleated osteoclast-like cells in cultures of canine bone marrow mononuclear cells. marrow cells from a distemper-infected dog and from five uninfected dogs were cultured in the presence of 1 alpha, 25-(oh)2 vitamin d3 and the number of tartrate resistant ...19957577157
ultrastructural study of unidentified inclusions in the cornea and iridocorneal angle of dogs with pannus.the corneas and/or the iridocorneal angles of 13 dogs were examined morphologically by use of transmission electron microscopy. virologic identification techniques also were used for tissue from 2 dogs. four dogs had clinical signs of chronic superficial keratitis or pannus, 9 dogs had normal eyes. in the tissue from 7 dogs (4 german shepherd dogs with chronic superficial keratitis; 2 german shepherd dogs and 1 mixed-breed dog with normal eyes) we found unusual cytoplasmic inclusions. inclusions ...19957653888
restricted expression of viral surface proteins in canine distemper encephalitis.sixteen dogs with naturally occurring acute and chronic canine distemper virus (cdv) encephalitis were examined immunohistochemically for the presence of the five major cdv-specific proteins in the central nervous system. monoclonal antibodies (mabs) directed against two, three, four and five epitopes of the nucleo- (n), phospho- (p), fusion (f), and hemagglutinin (h) protein, respectively, and a polyclonal monospecific antibody recognizing the matrix (m) protein were used. both core proteins an ...19937687812
canine distemper virus persistence in the nervous system is associated with noncytolytic selective virus spread.canine distemper virus (cdv), a negative-strand rna morbillivirus, causes a progressive demyelinating disease in which virus persistence plays an essential role. the antiviral immune response leads to virus clearance in the inflammatory lesions. however, cdv can replicate and persist outside these inflammatory lesions within the brain. how cdv is capable of persisting in the presence of an effective antiviral immune response is poorly understood. in the present investigation, we studied several ...19957853504
