clostridium difficile in horses in australia--a preliminary study.during a 24 month period from 2007 to 2009, 174 faecal specimens from horses in australia (predominantly from western australia) were tested for clostridium difficile. c. difficile was isolated from 14 (23ôçè%) of 62 diarrhoeal animals (including 10 foals) and from none of 112 healthy adult horses. these isolates were toxin profiled by pcr for toxin a, toxin b and binary toxin, and ribotyped. ten of the equine isolates were a(+)b(+)cdt(-). other toxin profiles detected were a(-)b(-)cdt(+) (one i ...201121436371
molecular characterization of potentially zoonotic isolates of giardia duodenalis in horses.giardia isolates from eight horses from new york state (ny), usa and two horses from western australia (wa) were genetically characterized at the ssu-rdna and triose-phosphate isomerase (tpi) genes. phylogenetic analysis of the tpi gene provided strong support for the placement of both isolates of giardia from horses in wa and a single isolate from a horse in ny within the assemblage ai genotype of g. duodenalis. another two isolates from horses in ny placed within the assemblage aii genotype of ...200515925726
