phylogenetic analyses of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus isolates from germany in 2006 and 2007 suggest at least three separate introductions of h5n1 spring 2006, highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (hpaiv) of subtype h5n1 was detected in germany in 343 dead wild birds, as well as in a black swan (cygnus atratus) kept in a zoo, three stray cats, one stone marten (martes foina), and in a single turkey farm. in 2007 (june-july) the virus reoccurred in 96 wild birds at six geographically separate locations in the southeast of germany. in addition, a backyard mixed duck and goose holding was affected. real-time rt-pcr [hoffmann, b., harder ...200818031958
serological survey and risk factors for toxoplasma gondii in domestic ducks and geese in lower saxony, obtain estimates for the prevalence of toxoplasma gondii infection in ducks and geese in germany, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (elisa) were established based on affinity-purified t. gondii tachyzoite surface antigen 1 (tgsag1) and used to examine duck and goose sera for t. gondii-specific antibodies. the results of 186 sera from 60 non-infected ducks (anas platyrhynchos) and 101 sera from 36 non-infected geese (anser anser) as well as 72 sera from 11 ducks and 89 sera from 12 geese inoc ...201121719198
