equine onchocerciasis in queensland and the northern territory of australia.investigations were conducted on the taxonomy, distribution in the carcase, pathology and transmission of onchocerca spp. in equids from queensland and the northern territory. examination of small groups of horses and ponies revealed high infection rates with o. cervicalis, while lesser numbers were infected with o. gutturosa. o. reticulata was not found. neither of the australian species is likely to be of economic importance to the horsemeat industry. the findings support the belief that o. ce ...19836639515
characterisation of wongorr virus, an australian orbivirus.sequence analyses of vp3 gene segments of wongorr virus isolates from the northern territory of australia were compared with the cognate gene segments from picola and paroo river viruses. previous serological investigations had demonstrated some relationships between these viruses, however vp3 gene sequence and phylogenetic analyses placed these viruses within the same serogroup which was distinct from other described orbivirus serogroups. a polymerase chain reaction (pcr) was developed for the ...19968879140

peruvian horse sickness virus and yunnan orbivirus, isolated from vertebrates and mosquitoes in peru and australia.during 1997, two new viruses were isolated from outbreaks of disease that occurred in horses, donkeys, cattle and sheep in peru. genome characterization showed that the virus isolated from horses (with neurological disorders, 78% fatality) belongs to a new species the peruvian horse sickness virus (phsv), within the genus orbivirus, family reoviridae. this represents the first isolation of phsv, which was subsequently also isolated during 1999, from diseased horses in the northern territory of a ...200919766284
Hendra virus infection dynamics in Australian fruit bats.Hendra virus is a recently emerged zoonotic agent in Australia. Since first described in 1994, the virus has spilled from its wildlife reservoir (pteropid fruit bats, or 'flying foxes') on multiple occasions causing equine and human fatalities. We undertook a three-year longitudinal study to detect virus in the urine of free-living flying foxes (a putative route of excretion) to investigate Hendra virus infection dynamics. Pooled urine samples collected off plastic sheets placed beneath roosting ...201122174865
clinical observations on equine phycomycosis.during a clinical study of equine phycomycosis in tropical northern australia 3 specific forms of phycomycosis were identified. of 266 cases diagnosed in 5 different laboratories, hyphomycosis caused by hyphomyces destruens was responsible for 76.7%, basidiobolomycosis caused by basidiobolus haptosporus for 18.0%, and entomophthoramycosis caused by conidiobolus coronatus for 5.3%. most cases of hyphomycosis were observed between march and july, that is after the monsoonal wet summer, but were ca ...19826890342
