[study of the antigenic relationship of different strains of the rabies group viruses].in neutralization tests in animals close antigenic relationship between human virus of acute encephalomyelitis (aem) and viruses (297 and 598 sg strains) isolated from wild rodents in czechoslovakia was first established. at the same time, poor antigenic relationship of human aem virus to viruses isolated in africa from bats (lagos bat) and from shrews (yban 27377) was demonstrated. certain differences in the antigenic properties of viruses isolated in africa and in czechoslovakia were found. t ...197554997
use of the hemadsorption phenomenon for determining virus and neutralizing antibody titers of rabies.chicken embryo cells infected with the hep flury strain of rabies virus adapted to tissue culture produced a hemadsorption (had) phenomenon by using goose erthyrocytes. the optimal conditions for had included the incubation of cell cultures at 37c for 3 days after virus inoculation, the use of a 0.4% suspension of goose erythrocytes in phosphate buffer adjusted at ph 6.2, and adsorption of erythrocytes at 4c. this phenomenon was inhibited with anti-rabies serum. virus titer obtained with the had ...197657927
[newly developed virusvaccines in veterinary medicine (author's transl)].newly developed vaccines in veterinary medicine can be classified into two categories. the first category comprises inactivated vaccines produced by "classical" methods such as inactivation of the virus by formalin and the use of a1(oh)3 as adjuvant. besides, this category also includes live vaccines from attenuated virus. thus, all of these vaccines represent no genuinely new developments and owe their origin to the fact that the importance of several virus diseases of animals has grown in the ...1978566007

a method for simultaneous detection and identification of brazilian dog- and vampire bat-related rabies virus by reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification present, the sporadic occurrence of human rabies in brazil can be attributed primarily to dog- and vampire bat-related rabies viruses. reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (rt-lamp) was employed as a simultaneous detection method for both rabies field variants within 60 min. vampire bat-related rabies viruses could be distinguished from dog variants by digesting amplicons of the rt-lamp reaction using the restriction enzyme alwi. amplification and digestion could both ...201020403387
immunohistochemical study of rabies virus within the central nervous system of domestic and wildlife species.immunohistochemistry using a commercial polyclonal antibody for lyssavirus was applied to 39 archival cases of rabies. paraffin blocks from 13 different species were available, including 3 dogs, 4 cats, 1 pig, 6 cattle, 4 horses, 1 llama, 7 skunks (mephitis mephitis), 7 raccoons (procyon lotor), 1 bat (myotis species), 1 white-tailed deer (odocoileus virginianus), 1 bobcat (lynx rufus), 2 gray foxes (urocyon cinereoargenteus), and 1 red fox (vulpes vulpes). all cases had previously been diagnose ...201020484176
analysis of chinese rabies virus isolates from 2003-2007 based on p and m protein genes.phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequences or deduced amino acid sequences of phosphoprotein (p protein), matrix (m) protein, and glycoprotein (g protein) genes of 18 chinese isolates of rabies virus (rabv) from 2003-2007 showed that these isolates formed a separate monophyletic lineage consisting of sub-lineages a and b. compared with laboratory-fixed strains, recent chinese isolates of sub-lineage b contained val or ala instead of met69 in p protein, which is involved in generating truncate ...201020545436
rabies virus strains circulating in bhutan: implications for control.summarywe report a molecular epidemiological study of rabies virus (rabv) strains circulating in animal populations in bhutan, and investigate potential origins of these viruses. twenty-three rabv isolates originating from dogs and other domestic animals were characterized by sequencing the partial nucleoprotein (n) gene (395 bp). phylogenetic analysis was conducted and the bhutanese isolates were compared with rabies viruses originating from other parts of the world. phylogenetic analysis showe ...201021108870
presence of antibodies against rabies in wild boars.serum samples of 746 shot wild boars collected throughout slovenia during the hunting season of 2005/2006 were examined for the presence of antibodies against rabies virus: 541 samples were collected in areas subjected to yearly antirabies vaccination, and 205 samples were collected in areas where preventive antirabies vaccination was not practised. using a modified enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa), in 209 out of 746 sera (28%) the levels of antibodies against rabies virus were higher t ...201121354950
porcine teschovirus polioencephalomyelitis in western canada.beginning in 2002, a small number of pig farms in western canada began reporting 4-7-week-old pigs with bilateral hind-end paresis or paralysis. low numbers of pigs were affected, some died, most had to be euthanized, and those that survived had reduced weight gains and neurological deficits. necropsies revealed no gross lesions, but microscopic lesions consisted of a nonsuppurative polioencephalomyelitis, most severe in the brain stem and spinal cord. the lesions were most consistent with a vir ...201121398466
establishment of a stable cho cell line with high level expression of recombinant porcine ifn-ß.a cho cell clone (cho-poifn-ß) with stable porcine ifn-ß expression under control of cmv promoter was selected under g418 pressure. in a 25cm(2) cell culture flask (5 ml culture medium), the cumulative protein yield of recombinant poifn-ß reached 2.3×10(6) iu/ml. this cells clone maintained stable expression for at least 20 generations even in the absence of g418 selection pressure. the expressed recombinant poifn-ß could induce the expression of porcine mx protein in pk15 cells, and activate th ...201121459017
