outbreaks of pasteurella multocida septicaemia in fallow deer (dama dama). 19827101699
demonstration of ornithobacterium rhinotracheale in pheasants (phasianus colchicus) with pneumonia and airsacculitis.outbreaks of respiratory disease were investigated in reared pheasants (phasianus colchicus) aged approximately 18 to 32 weeks, released into the semi-wild on four shooting estates in southern england. the clinical signs in the affected birds included swelling of the face and eyes, loss of condition, gasping respirations and coughing. the gross pathology findings included sinusitis, airsacculitis, pleural oedema and lung lesions. the histopathological findings in the affected lungs were characte ...201323581445
investigations into an outbreak of corvid respiratory disease associated with pasteurella multocida.the possible cause of disease and mortality in corvids on an outdoor pig unit in the north of england between august 2007 and march 2008 was investigated. nine carrion crows (corvus corone corone) and nine rooks (corvus frugilegus), comprising five live-caught birds with clinical signs of respiratory disease, one live-caught bird without respiratory disease, and 12 birds submitted dead were examined. clinical signs, gross and histopathological examination, microbiology and toxicology indicated t ...201121711193
genetic diversity among pasteurella multocida strains of avian, bovine, ovine and porcine origin from england and wales by comparative sequence analysis of the 16s rrna gene.genetic diversity among 86 pasteurella multocida isolates was investigated by comparative sequence analysis of a 1468 bp fragment of the 16s rrna gene. the strains included 79 field isolates recovered from birds (poultry) (22), cattle (21), pigs (26) and sheep (10) within england and wales, four asian isolates associated with bovine haemorrhagic septicaemia, and the type strains of the three subspecies of p. multocida. dulcitol and sorbitol fermentation patterns were also determined to establish ...200415583172
diversity of avian pasteurella multocida strains based on capsular pcr typing and variation of the ompa and omph outer membrane proteins.one hundred avian pasteurella multocida isolates recovered from cases of fowl cholera and related infections in england and wales over a 13-year period were characterised by capsular pcr typing and analysis of outer membrane protein (omp) profiles. sixty-eight percent of the strains were of capsular type a, 14% were type f, 5% were type d, 4% were type b and 9% were untypable. nineteen distinct omp profiles (omp-types) were identified based mainly on molecular mass heterogeneity of the heat-modi ...200312458166
detection and distribution of toxigenic pasteurella multocida in pig herds with different degrees of atrophic rhinitis.four herds of pigs were selected which had different degrees of clinical atrophic rhinitis and used different specific counter-measures. in two of them, the clinical signs occurred spasmodically and were slight. the sows, suckling pigs and growing pigs in all the herds were sampled for toxigenic pasteurella multocida. in one of the slightly affected herds (herd d), the weaners were moved to a second farm for finishing. no toxigenic p multocida were found at the breeding farm, but 50 per cent of ...19902356600
some aspects of the epidemiology and control of salmonella typhimurium infection in outwintered suckler cows.two outbreaks of salmonella typhimurium infections affected outwintered, spring-calving suckler cows in late pregnancy. the infections spread rapidly both within and between groups of stock on the affected farms, with morbidity in the infected groups varying from 14.5 per cent to over 60 per cent, and mortality in adult cattle varying from 0 to 14.3 per cent. prophylactic measures included the use of antibiotics and killed vaccines against escherichia coli, salmonella dublin, s typhimurium, and ...19921475896
