serum antibody prevalence for herpesvirus sylvilagus, bacillus piliformis and california serogroup arboviruses in cottontail rabbits from pennsylvania.a serologic survey of 60 eastern cottontail rabbits (sylvilagus floridanus) from three counties in pennsylvania was conducted in march 1983. serum antibody prevalences for herpesvirus sylvilagus and la crosse virus (california serogroup) were less than 4%. there was no evidence of previous exposure to either jamestown canyon or snowshoe hare viruses (california serogroup). antibody to trivittatus virus (california serogroup) was found in 60% of the 20 cottontails from york county. no cottontails ...19883373643
the enteritis complex in domestic rabbits: a field study.a study of the causative agents of enteritis in domestic rabbits from 44 different accessions is described. in descending order of frequency, the organisms most commonly demonstrated were intestinal and hepatic coccidia (eimeria species), escherichia coli, clostridium spp., salmonella, bacillus piliformis, and rotavirus. the species of eimeria identified included those moderately pathogenic and coccidia of low pathogenicity. using seven antisera against known enterpathogenic strains of e. coli, ...199317424177
tularemia, plague, yersiniosis, and tyzzer's disease in wild rodents and lagomorphs in canada: a review.information related to infection of wild rodents or lagomorphs in canada by francisella tularensis, yersinia pestis, other yersinia spp., and clostridium piliforme was searched for this study. reports on tularemia in humans linked to these species came from diagnostic databases, literature, wildlife health specialists, and public health agencies. tularemia has been diagnosed in 8 species of wild rodent and 2 species in the genus lepus in canada. tularemia occurred in wild animals, or in humans a ...200920190973
evaluation of available diagnostic methods for clostridium piliforme in laboratory rabbits (oryctolagus cuniculus).recent literature has indicated that animals seropositive for clostridium piliforme may have negative findings on polymerase chain reaction (pcr) testing. this study examines and reports on the results of serology, pcr and histopathology tests performed on a group of 20 laboratory rabbits seropositive for c. piliforme using the latest available diagnostic methodologies. the presence of the organism was not confirmed by either pcr or histopathology in this group of 20 for c. piliforme seropositiv ...201019535389
protein and antigenic heterogeneity among isolates of bacillus piliformis.protein and antigenic heterogeneity among isolates of bacillus piliformis, the etiologic agent of tyzzer's disease, were investigated. the seven isolates utilized in this study were originally isolated from naturally infected animals of different animal species and diverse geographical locations. isolates were propagated in mammalian cell lines, and bacterial extracts were prepared. protein and antigenic profiles were compared among isolates, using coomassie blue-stained polyacrylamide gels and ...19902318527
development of a high-sensitivity nested pcr assay for the detection of clostridium piliforme in clinical samples.tyzzer's disease has been reported in numerous animal species, including rodents and lagomorphs such as the rabbit. because the organism cannot be cultivated on artificial media the diagnosis of the aetiological agent clostridium piliforme is rather difficult and is based on the identification of typical gross lesions and histological demonstration of the characteristic intracellular bacteria at the periphery of the necrotic foci. to address the limitations of c. piliforme detection a nested pol ...201019493689

an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for detection of anti-bacillus piliformis serum antibody in rabbits.an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) is described for the detection of rabbit serum antibody directed against the causative agent of tyzzer's disease, bacillus piliformis. ninety-four percent agreement was found between the elisa and an indirect fluorescent antibody test. the sensitivity of the elisa was 95% and its specificity was 92% as compared to the indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat). the rabbit origin b. piliformis isolate used in this elisa was found to be cross-reactive by ...19873599886
