host-feeding patterns of aedes albopictus (diptera: culicidae) at a temperate north american site.precipitin tests and elisa were used to investigate host-feeding patterns of 172 blood-fed aedes albopictus (skuse) collected at potosi, mo, during the summers of 1989 and 1990. one hundred ten (64.0%) mosquitoes had fed on mammals, 29 (16.9%) on birds, and none on turtles or snakes. thirty-three (19.2%) mosquitoes failed to react in all tests. eighty-six (78.2%) of the 110 mammalian feeds were positive for lower taxa as follows: rabbit, 24.5%; deer, 14.5%; dog, 13.6%; human, 8.2%; squirrel, 7.3 ...19938433336

prevalence of neospora hughesi and sarcocystis neurona antibodies in horses from various geographical locations.parasite-specific antibody responses to neospora antigens were detected using the immunofluorescent antibody test (ifat) and immunoblot analysis in select equine populations. for comparison, a naturally infected neospora hughesi horse and an experimentally inoculated neospora caninum horse were used. in addition, all samples were tested for antibodies to sarcocystis neurona by immunoblot analysis. a total of 208 samples was evaluated. the equine populations were derived from five distinct geogra ...200111223207
dioxin. a case in point.the dangers posed by herbicidal chemicals to organisms and the environment are pointed out in this review of their development beginning in world war ii. in particular, the toxic results of the spraying of dioxin (agent orange) in vietnam are detailed, with corroborating data from clinical and field studies and reports of related industrial accidents. despite a recent ban imposed on all dioxin-containing herbicides by the environmental protection agency, widespread domestic use of herbicides con ...19807246507

diagnosis of west nile virus infection in horses.the north american west nile virus (wnv) epizootic, which began in 1999, has caused significant morbidity and mortality in horses. because experimental infection has failed to consistently produce encephalitis in inoculated horses, investigation of naturally occurring cases was used to optimize strategies for diagnosis of this disease. although wnv rna could be detected by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr) performed on whole blood collected from both clinically affected ho ...200414974840

reproductive outcomes of mothers with potential exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin.animal laboratory studies have demonstrated that 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (tcdd) has fetotoxic and teratogenic effects at low doses. tcdd contamination of soil in nine residential areas of eastern missouri began in 1971 when several horse arenas and dirt roads were sprayed for dust control with a mixture that contained waste oil and dioxin. the authors conducted an epidemiologic investigation to determine if adverse human reproductive outcomes are associated with exposure to soil cont ...19883394706
sarcocystis neurona reacting antibodies in missouri feral domestic cats (felis domesticus) and their role as an intermediate host.sarcocystis neurona is the parasite associated with equine protozoal myeloencephalitis (epm). recently, cats (felis domesticus) have been implicated as a potential intermediate host in the life cycle of s. neurona. this study was initiated to determine whether cats have antibodies that react to s. neurona antigens similar to antibodies from horses with epm, and to evaluate the role of cats as intermediate hosts in the parasite's life cycle. nine feral cats were used for analysis. only one had an ...200211826870
