dermatophytes isolated from domestic animals in barcelona, spain.this retrospective study deals with the main samples studied at the mycology diagnostic service of the faculty of veterinary science of barcelona: animals with suspected dermatophytosis. over a ten-year period from 1986 to 1995, 136 dermatophytes were identified from dog and cat cultures submitted for identification and from specimens submitted for mycological examination from a variety of other domestic animals. the most frequent dermatophytes isolated were microsporum canis (55.9%), trichophyt ...19979335154
effects of capture and transport on blood parameters in free-ranging mouflon (ovis ammon).twelve free-ranging mouflon (ovis ammon), eight adults and four lambs, were captured in northeast spain. the animals were transported for 9 hr from the capture site to the wildlife rescue center at vallcalent (lleida), 300 km sw. blood samples were taken at capture and after transport to study the effects on hematologic and biochemical parameters. the rbc, pcv, hb, and alkaline phosphatase values were significantly higher in lambs than in adults, and total protein levels were significantly lower ...19979580218
seroprevalence of babesia ovis in mouflon sheep in spain.a serological survey detected antibodies against babesia ovis in mouflon sheep (ovis musimon) from two different reserves located in catalonia in northeastern spain. an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) was developed using a b. ovis isolate of ovine origin as the antigen. of 50 sera tested, six (12%) showed titres between 1:160 and 1:640 and were considered positive. these results indicate that exposure of mouflon to babesia ovis is common in this region.19989706577

seroprevalence of babesia ovis in sheep in catalonia, northeastern indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) was developed in order to detect antibodies against babesia ovis in different sheep flocks from catalonia, northeastern spain. of the total 2174 sera included in the study, 133 (6.1%) were positive. considerable differences in seroprevalence were detected depending on the geographical areas from which the animals originated. this must have been a consequence of the presence or absence of the vector tick, rhipicephalus bursa, the distribution of which ...19989831951
epidemiology of canine leishmaniosis in catalonia (spain) the example of the priorat epidemiological survey of canine leishmaniosis was conducted in the priorat, a rural region in the northeast of spain, for 10 years (1985-1994). seroprevalence throughout the region, determined by dot-elisa and ifi, was 10.2% (8-12%). forty percent of the dogs studied had a low level of anti-leishmania antibodies, whereas only 50% were seronegative. only one-third of the seropositive dogs had evident symptoms of the disease. annual incidence of the disease was 5.7% and the level of endemicity ...199910392965
[incidence, etiology and epidemiology of brucellosis in a rural area of the province of lleida].this a prospective study of the incidence, etiology and epidemiological profile of human brucellosis in the regions of pallars jussà y sobirà (lleida) for the 1995-1998 period.200010832390
culicoides midges in catalonia (spain), with special reference to likely bluetongue virus vectors.midges of the genus culicoides (diptera: ceratopogonidae) were trapped weekly from may 2001 through december 2002 on two farms in the province of barcelona (spain). dosrius farm was stocked with sheep and goats whereas bellaterra farm had only sheep. this trapping programme was carried out within the framework of an investigation into the occurrence/absence of possible vectors of bluetongue virus (btv) in mainland spain. a total of 30,079 culicoides specimens were collected from 165 light trap c ...200312941013
prevalence of toxoplasma gondii antibodies in red deer (cervus elaphus) and other wild ruminants from spain.serum samples from 441 red deer (cervus elaphus) and 161 other wild ruminant species, collected between 1993 and 2005 from six regions of spain were tested for antibodies against toxoplasma gondii by the modified agglutination test (mat). antibodies to t. gondii (mat 1:25 or higher) were detected in 15.6% of red deer. statistically significant differences were observed among sampling sites with seroprevalence in red deer from catalonia (42.2%) being significantly higher compared with other spani ...200616359801
molecular profiling and comparison of field transmissible spongiform encephalopathy cases diagnosed in catalunya.molecular profiling of the proteinase k resistant prion protein (prp(res)) is a technique that has been applied to the characterisation of transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (tse) strains. an interesting example of the application of this technique is the ability to differentiate, at the experimental level, between bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) and scrapie infection in sheep, and to distinguish between classical and atypical bse and scrapie cases. twenty-six bse cases and two scrap ...200716690334
seroprevalence of neospora caninum in non-carnivorous wildlife from spain.serum samples from 1034 non-carnivorous wildlife from spain were tested for antibodies to neospora caninum by competitive screening enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) and confirmed by an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat). high agreement was observed between results in both techniques (kappa value higher than 0.9). prevalences of n. caninum antibodies positive by both techniques were 11.8% of 237 red deer (cervus elaphus), 7.7% of 13 barbary sheep (ammotragus lervia), 6.1% of 33 ro ...200716962706
seroprevalence of babesia ovis in spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) in catalonia, northeastern spain.a serologic survey was carried out in order to detect antibodies against babesia ovis in a large population of spanish ibex (capra pyrenaica) from a hunting reserve in catalonia, northeastern spain. for this purpose, an indirect fluorescent antibody test (ifat) was developed using a b. ovis isolate of ovine origin as antigen. of the total 475 sera tested, 155 (32.6%) showed titres between 1:160 and 1:1280 and were considered positive. these results reveal that exposure of spanish ibex to b. ovis ...19989637213
