animal melioidosis in australia.melioidosis was first diagnosed in australia in sheep in 1949. while it has been considered endemic in tropical australia, there have been animal outbreaks in southwest western australia and southern queensland. infection occurs in many species, with both latency and a wide range of clinical manifestations. some species may develop melioidosis only if immunocompromised. sheep and goats are particularly susceptible, resulting in the requirement for pasteurisation of tropical commercial goat's mil ...200010674644
preliminary report on the northern australian melioidosis environmental surveillance environmental surveillance programme was developed to determine whether water supplies could be a source of burkholderia pseudomallei as noted during previous melioidosis outbreak investigations. water supplies to communities in the three northern australian jurisdictions (western australia, northern territory and queensland) were sampled periodically during 2001 and 2002. water and soil samples were collected from communities known to have had recent culture-positive melioidosis cases and ne ...200415473143
dna fingerprinting of australian isolates of mycobacterium avium subsp paratuberculosis using is900 evaluate additional restriction enzymes for is900 rflp of mycobacterium avium subsp paratuberculosis and examine the genetic diversity among australian isolates for epidemiological studies of johne's disease.200010860159
the isolation and preliminary characterization of a rhabdovirus in australia related to bovine ephemeral fever virus.csiro 368 virus was isolated from blood collected in the northern territory from a healthy cow and electron microscope studies showed that the isolate had rhabdovirus morphology. fluorescent antibody studies and complement fixation tests related the virus to bovine ephemeral fever (bef) virus. neutralization tests in both suckling mice and vero cells showed that the virus was not bef virus. antibodies to csiro 368 virus were found in cattle sera from northern and eastern australia and papua new ...19836612981
differentiation of australian isolates of mycobacterium paratuberculosis using pulsed-field gel examine strain variation amongst australian isolates of mycobacterium paratuberculosis.19979469224
arboviruses recovered from sentinel livestock in northern australia.over 700 arboviruses were recovered between 1981 and 1987 from the blood of sentinel livestock near darwin. twenty-three isolates were made from sheep, goats, swamp buffalo (bubalus bubalis) and horses, and the remainder were from cattle. the isolates have been typed as 27 separate viruses belonging to the bluetongue, epizootic haemorrhagic disease, palyam, simbu, bovine ephemeral fever, tibrogargan and alphavirus groups. ten of these viruses have not been isolated elsewhere in australia and fou ...19883218073
epidemiology of bluetongue in australia: the vertebrate hosts.ruminants became established in australia after european settlement which commenced in the late 18th century. bluetongue (bt) disease has never been suspected in cattle or sheep in this country. the species of ruminants found to have antibodies to bt and epizootic haemorrhagic disease (ehd) viruses are cattle, buffaloes, deer, goats and sheep. no antibodies have been found in pigs, horses, marsupials (kangaroos and wallabies) or humans, even in areas of high prevalence of bt and ehd infection. t ...19852989897
