the delivery of veterinary services to poorer communities: the case of rural orissa, india.this paper presents the results of a field survey on use patterns and demand for clinical veterinary services in one of the poorest states of india, namely, orissa. a demand function was estimated using poisson regression and demand elasticities were obtained for various income groups. the survey shows that large numbers of households, including the poor, pay prices that are significantly higher than those prescribed. there is no targeting of cheaper services towards the poor. the analysis also ...200315005551
isolation of ganjam virus from ticks collected off domestic animals around pune, maharashtra, india.studies on viruses of zoonotic importance in certain villages around pune were undertaken between december 2000 and january 2002. a total of 1,138 adult ticks belonging to six different species were collected off domestic animals and processed for virus isolation. six virus isolates were obtained. all six isolates were identified as ganjam virus by quick complement fixation test and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction using rna nucleocapsid gene amplification. five isolates were from ...200515799531
ganjam virus.ganjam virus (ganv), a member of genus nairovirus of family bunyavirdae is of considerable veterinary importance in india. though, predominantly tick borne, ganv was also isolated from mosquitoes, man and sheep. neutralizing and complement fixing antibodies to ganv have been detected in animal and human sera collected from different parts of the country. thirty three strains of ganv have been isolated from india, mainly from haemaphysalis ticks. the virus replicated in certain vertebrate and mos ...200920090098

diversity analysis of sheep breeds from southern peninsular and eastern regions of india.information is presented on the genetic diversity and relationship among six indian sheep breeds/populations belonging to the southern peninsular and eastern agroecological zones, based on microsatellite markers. parameters of genetic variation, viz., allele diversity, observed heterozygosity, gene diversity and population inbreeding estimates, were calculated for the six breeds. the allele diversity ranged from 6.40 to 7.92, whereas the gene diversity varied from 0.617 to 0.727. the highest all ...201020938738
genomic analysis reveals nairobi sheep disease virus to be highly diverse and present in both africa, and in india in the form of the ganjam virus variant.nairobi sheep disease (nsd) virus, the prototype tick-borne virus of the genus nairovirus, family bunyaviridae is associated with acute hemorrhagic gastroenteritis in sheep and goats in east and central africa. the closely related ganjam virus found in india is associated with febrile illness in humans and disease in livestock. the complete s, m and l segment sequences of ganjam and nsd virus and partial sequence analysis of ganjam viral rna genome s, m and l segments encoding regions (396bp, 70 ...201121511058
