antibodies to berne virus in horses and other animals.after inoculation into 2 foals, berne virus induced neutralizing antibody, but did not cause clinical symptoms. in a horizontal study of seropositive mares and their offspring, a decline of maternal antibodies and a sudden synchronous seroconversion in all foals were observed, again without clinical symptoms. the virus is widespread in the swiss horse population and has been so during the last decade; rises in antibody titers were noted in 9% of paired sera sampled at random. positive reactions ...19846506447
[infection with mycoplasma mycoides ssp. mycoides lc (large colony type) in bezoar goat kids (capra aegagrus cretica) in the bern (switzerland) zoo].mycoplasma mycoides ssp. mycoides lc (large colony type) (mml) was isolated from three 2 to 6 weeks old wild goat kids (capra aegagrus cretica) dead of septicemia in a swiss zoo. necropsy revealed peritonitis, pneumonia and enteritis. mml was isolated out of the ear canal of most of the healthy animals in the flock. the high density of the animals, the presence of concomitant diseases and the carriage among healthy animals seem to have been important predisposing factors for the mml-infection.19948091181
