[serological studies of the recent infections of austrian horses with the equine arteritis virus].944 serum samples of horses, collected in 1988 and 1989, were examined for the occurrence of antibodies against equine arteritis virus by a microneutralizations test. in 10.9% of all sera reactors could be found. the distribution of seropositive horses varied from 4.6% (salzburg) to 15.7% (lower austria). from tyrol and vorarlberg no samples could be obtained. it was not possible, to correlate clinical symptoms (infertility, respiratory symptoms, fever and edema) with the infection. it is assume ...19911851082
horses and borrelia: immunoblot patterns with five borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato strains and sera from horses of various stud farms in austria and from the spanish riding school in vienna.grazing animals are continuously exposed to tick bites. consequently, one may expect that horses will become infected with the various pathogens carried by ticks including borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato. whether horses may develop clinical disease due to this pathogen is controversially discussed. we were interested to learn about the infection of horses with borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato within one season by studying the dynamics of the humoral immune response in paired blood samples. the ma ...200212141766
detection of bovine torovirus in neonatal calf diarrhoea in lower austria and styria (austria).faeces of 230 calves with and without diarrhoea collected during the winter period 2004/2005 in 100 austrian farms (styria and lower austria) were examined for viral, bacterial and parasitic enteropathogens. torovirus-specific nucleic acid confirmed by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction was found in 12 of 230 calves (5.2%). ten of these calves were clinically ill, several of them showing signs of dehydration and abnormal faecal consistency at the time of sampling. computer assisted ...200616629982
pedigree analysis in the austrian noriker draught horse: genetic diversity and the impact of breeding for coat colour on population structure.the pedigree of the current austrian noriker draught horse population comprising 2808 horses was traced back to the animals considered as founders of this breed. in total, the number of founders was 1991, the maximum pedigree length was 31 generations, with an average of 12.3 complete generations. population structure in this autochthonous austrian draught horse breed is defined by seven breeding regions (carinthia, lower austria, salzburg, styria, tyrol, upper austria and vorarlberg) or through ...200919765161
