[ecology of thelazia spp. in cattle and their vectors in italy].the genus thelazia (spirurida, thelaziidae) includes a cosmopolitan group of eyeworm spirurids responsible for ocular infections in domestic and wild animals and transmitted by different species of muscids. bovine thelaziosis is caused by thelazia rhodesi desmarest 1828, thelazia gulosa railliet & henry 1910, and thelazia skrjabini erschow 1928, which occur in many countries; t. gulosa and t. skrjabini have been reported mainly in the new world, while t. rhodesi is particularly common in the old ...200415305729
occurrence of thelazia lacrymalis (nematoda, spirurida, thelaziidae) in native horses in italy.a survey on the prevalence of thelazia spp. in the province of bari (apulia region, italy) in slaughtered native horses was conducted from june 20, 1995 to april 3, 1996. both eyes from 409 ten-month- to 4-year-old native animals were examined. sixty horses (14.7%) were found parasitized by thelazia lacrymalis. three hundred-sixty one parasite specimens (220 females, 99 males and 42 larvae) were collected with a mean count burden of 6.0-5.1 (range 1 to 20) per head. t. lacrymalis specimens were ...199910870558

genetic characterization of equine influenza viruses isolated in italy between 1999 and 2005.during local respiratory disease outbreaks, occurring in 2003 and 2004 in horse training stables within race-tracks in rome, and on a stud horse farm in bari in 2005, four strains of equine influenza (ei) virus were isolated. all outbreaks occurred in flu-vaccinated horses. here, we are reporting the results of the genetic characterization of these isolates, together with that of another ei virus strain isolated in 1999 from a dead foal presenting pulmonary lesions. alignment and phylogenetic an ...200817889395
an outbreak of equine influenza virus in vaccinated horses in italy is due to an h3n8 strain closely related to recent north american representatives of the florida december 2005, equine influenza virus infection was confirmed as the cause of clinical respiratory disease in vaccinated horses in apulia, italy. the infected horses had been vaccinated with a vaccine that contained strains representatives from both the european (a/eq/suffolk/89) and american (a/eq/newmarket/1/93) h3n8 influenza virus lineages, and the h7n7 strain a/eq/praga/56. genetic characterization of the hemagglutinin (ha) and neuraminidase (na) genes of the virus from the outbreak, ind ...200717197135
report in europe of nasal myiasis by rhinoestrus spp. in horses and donkeys: seasonal patterns and taxonomical considerations.two species of rhinoestrus (i.e. rhinoestrus purpureus (brauer) and rhinoestrus usbekistanicus gan) cause nasal myiasis in horses, donkeys and zebras. in the past 15 years myiasis caused by r. purpureus has been reported in egypt and by r. usbekistanicus in senegal and niger, both in horses and in donkeys. with the aim to investigate the presence of this myiasis in autochthonous horses and donkeys from southern italy and to study the seasonal trend of larval infection, 212 native horses were nec ...200415158558
