prevalence and antigenic differences observed between bovine viral diarrhea virus subgenotypes isolated from cattle in australia and feedlots in the southwestern united states.bovine viral diarrhea virus (bvdv) is divided into 2 different species within the pestivirus genus, bvdv type 1 (bvdv-1) and bvdv type 2 (bvdv-2). further phylogenetic analysis has revealed subgenotype groupings within the 2 types. thus far, 12 bvdv-1 subgenotypes (a-l) and 2 bvdv-2 subgenotypes (a and b) have been identified. the purpose of the current study was to determine the prevalence of bvdv subgenotypes in the united states and australia and to determine if there are detectable antigenic ...201020224075
no evidence of endemic borna disease virus infection in australian horses in contrast with endemic infection in other continents.borna disease virus (bdv) is a unique rna virus that is a cause of neurological disease in horses, sheep and cats. the finding that bdv also infects humans has raised concern related to the impact of infection with this virus. the extent to which bdv may be endemic in geographical regions outside europe is of interest in management of international movement of animals including horses. sera from australian horses (n = 553) sampled in sydney, new south wales (nsw), were analysed for bdv antigen, ...200616328145
borna disease virus: evidence of naturally-occurring infection in cats in europe, borna disease virus (bdv) infection has been linked with staggering disease. the aim of this study was serological investigation for bdv infection in australian cats. de-identified sera were obtained from domestic cats presented at various veterinary clinics. bdv antigen levels were measured by a monoclonal antibody-based elisa. antibody to bdv measured semiquantitatively by elisa was detected in 0.8% of cats from south australia and 3.2% of animals from nsw confirmatory assays for el ...200818771098
