elaphostrongylus cervi in a population of red deer ( cervus elaphus) and evidence of cerebrospinal nematodiasis in small ruminants in the province of varese, italy.thirty-one faecal samples were collected from red deer in the northern area of varese, in the italian region of lombardy, between august and october 2008. the animals had either been hunted or accidently killed. examination for internal parasites showed a prevalence of 45.2% for elaphostrongylus cervi larvae and species identification was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (pcr). ninety-seven faecal samples were also collected from two goat flocks grazing in the same area between december 20 ...201020923583
assessing genetic diversity in italian goat populations using aflp markers.amplified fragment length polymorphism (aflp) markers were used to investigate the genetic variation in a sample of seven goat (capra hircus) populations. a total of 210 individuals (30 per population) were analysed using seven selected aflp primer combinations that produced 219 clear polymorphisms. four autochthonous goat breeds (bionda dell'adamello, frisa, orobica and verzaschese), two primary populations, one from the lombardy alps (val di livo) and the other from sardinia island (sarda) and ...200111683715
microbial composition, including the incidence of pathogens, of goat milk from the bergamo region of italy during a lactation year.sixty samples of raw goat milk intended for caprino cheese-making were collected from ten farms in the bergamo area over a 6-month period. analyses of main microbial groups, somatic cell count (scc) and ph were performed to determine the effect of origin (farm) and lactation period (april - september) on microbial composition and the incidence of pathogens in milk. overall mean values were: standard plate count (spc), 5.0 x 10(4) cfu/ml; yeasts, 2.5 x 10(2) cfu/ml; coliforms, 91 x 10(2) cfu/ml; ...200212222800
[gastrointestinal parasites in goat farms from bergamo province (lombardy, north italy)].a survey on gastrointestinal parasites in goat farms in bergamo province was carried out from may 2005 to january 2006. thirty-one dairy goat farms and 836 adult female goats were examined. faecal sampling was carried out before the antihelminthic treatments, and the sampling times were grouped in three seasonal periods (june-august, september-october and november-march). faecal exams were carried out by a mcmaster method and eggs per gram (epg) were calculated for each gastrointestinal parasite ...200617176948
[case report of elaphostrongylus cervi in a goat in north italy].a case of cerebral nematodiasis in a goat from lombardy (north italy) is described. clinical signs, histopathological lesions and the finding of a nematode in cerebral tissue sections of the affected animal confirmed the diagnosis of infection with elaphostrongylus cervi.200617176957
phenotypic and genotypic characterization of sorbitol-negative or slow-fermenting (suspected o157) escherichia coli isolated from milk samples in lombardy investigate phenotypic and genotypic aspects of sorbitol-negative or slow-fermenting escherichia coli, suspected to belong to o157 serogroup, isolated in italy.200515892748
