prevalence and characteristics of pasteurella multocida in commercial turkeys.the oropharyngeal regions of 680 meat turkeys and 55 breeder turkeys from nine outbreak farms, three history-outbreak farms, and 19 nonoutbreak farms in ohio, indiana, and pennsylvania were cultured to determine the prevalence of pasteurella multocida in turkeys. pasteurella multocida was recovered from 32 out of 105 turkeys belonging to outbreak farms. pasteurella multocida was not recovered from either history-outbreak or nonoutbreak farms. characterization via capsular and somatic serotyping, ...200111332480
evaluation of pasteurella multocida isolated from rabbits by capsular typing, somatic serotyping, and restriction endonuclease analysis.the goal of this study was to characterize pasteurella multocida isolated from rabbits. five hundred and fifty-three apparently healthy rabbits were sampled for this study. nasal swabs were collected from each rabbit for p. multocida isolation and identification. isolates were further characterized by capsular and somatic antigens and genomic dna fingerprinting. thirty-nine p. multocida isolates were recovered from 553 rabbits (7%). capsular typing was done by depolymerization of p. multocida ca ...200415053362
survey of pathogens and blood parasites in free-living determine the disease prevalence of free-living passerines, 1709 passerines were sampled from 38 different field sites in ohio. choanal and cloacal swabs were collected from each bird and cultured for the presence of pasteurella multocida, salmonella spp., and escherichia coli by standard microbiologic techniques. in addition, the serum from each bird was analyzed for the presence of antibodies to mycoplasma gallisepticum, mycoplasma synoviae, newcastle disease virus, and avian influenza viru ...199910494426
fecal shedding and antimicrobial susceptibility of selected bacterial pathogens and a survey of intestinal parasites in free-living waterfowl residing in metropolitan parks in central ohio were surveyed for the fecal shedding and antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of campylobacter jejuni, escherichia coli, salmonella spp., and pasteurella multocida. in addition, a survey for intestinal parasites was also conducted in these same waterfowl to determine parasite burdens in free-living waterfowl. prevalences of 67%, 50%, and 0.2% of e. coli, c. jejuni, and salmonella spp., respectively, were observed for all water ...200111332473
