contagious equine metritis eradicated from japan.contagious equine metritis (cem), a contagious venereal disease of horses, invaded japan in 1980 and spread in the thoroughbred population of the hidaka-iburi district of hokkaido. to eradicate cem, we ran a program aimed at detecting taylorella equigenitalis, the causal agent, in carrier horses by using the pcr test, followed by culling or treatment. in 2001, the first year of the program, 12,356 thoroughbred racing stallions and mares were tested and 11 carriers were found. four, two, one, and ...201122123306
antimicrobial resistance and genetic characteristics of salmonella typhimurium isolated from horses in hokkaido, this study, we examined the antimicrobial susceptibility of 16 salmonella typhimurium isolates obtained from horses, and applied several genetic methods, namely polymerase chain reaction (pcr) for detecting class 1 integrons, multiplex pcr for detecting multidrug resistant s. typhimurium definitive phage type 104 (mr-dt104), and fluorescent amplified-fragment length polymorphism (faflp). seven isolates with an ampicillin, chloramphenicol, streptomycin, sulfonamide, and tetracycline (acssut) t ...200919721370
nosological study of borna disease virus infection in race investigate the prevalence of diseases in the borna disease virus (bdv) antibody positive race horses, we undertook seroepidemiological studies of bdv infection on 125 culled race horses in hokkaido, japan. the serological study disclosed the presence of antibodies only to bdv-p40 or -p24 in 19.2% (24/125) and 3.2% (4/125) of culled horses, respectively. antibodies to both bdv-p40 and -p24 were found in 24.0% (30/125) of these horses. of particular note was the finding that locomotorium disor ...200211750144
antigenic and genetic analysis of h3n8 influenza viruses isolated from horses in japan and mongolia, and imported from canada and belgium during 2007-2010.a/equine/kanazawa/1/2007 (h3n8), a/equine/hokkaido/i828/2008 (h3n8) and a/equine/mongolia/1/2008 (h3n8) were isolated from infected horses. a/equine/yokohama/aq19/2009 (h3n8) and a/equine/yokohama/aq13/2010 (h3n8) were isolated from horses imported from canada and belgium examined at the animal quarantine service in yokohama, japan. in the present study, these five isolates were genetically and antigenically analyzed. phylogenetic analysis of hemagglutinin (ha) and neuraminidase (na) genes showe ...201121505822
