[the occurrence of echinococcus granulosis and e. multilocularis in thuringia].the occurrence of e. granulosus and e. multilocularis in the region of thuringia is reported. parasitological investigations showed 1421 e. granulosus metacestodes, 91.7% of them in lungs and 1.3% in livers of cattle, 6% in lungs and 1% in livers of pigs; that means an infestation rate at slaughter of 0.1%-0.3% in cattle and 0.001-0.004% or less in pigs resp. 90.1% of the hydatid cysts proved to be fertile even in a size of 1.5 cm diameter. adult e. granulosus was found post mortem in 2 of 324 d ...19921456463
[seroepidemiological studies on the detection of q fever in sheep in middle thuringia].in a random samples test altogether 4337 sheep of varying ages from several herds of different sizes in the middle region of thuringia were investigated with complement fixing test for the existence of q fever. in 47.1 per cent of the tested herds and in 5 from 8 of the included districts q fever reagents were provable. the serological detection quota of all tested sheep amounts to 1.11 per cent, but the percentage of serological reagents in mother-sheep was 1.36 per cent, in the female young sh ...19921463436
[environmental hygienic aspects of echinococcosis].a literature review on the current situation of echinococcosis in central europe is given. the only final host for echinococcus granulosus in this region ist the dog. the infection rate of dogs with e. granulosus in central europe is less than 1%. according to meat inspection statistics in germany less than 0.008% of sheep, pigs and horses carry larval stages of e. granulosus. parasitologically confirmed is the occurrence of a cattle-dog strain, the cysts of which were found in 0.26% of slaughte ...19921516550

[psoroptic scab control in sheep herds--experiences in use of medications].due to an uncontrolled trade in sheep, the importance of sheep scab has increased recently. alone in thuringia six outbreaks occurred in 1993. now psoroptic mange is endemic in germany. mutual infections between sheep and cattle seem to be extremely rare in the field. outbreaks of sheep scab entails heavy economic losses. therefore, control has to be successful and to aim at eradication. the survivability of the psoroptic mites aside from the host until 48 days has to be considered. eradication ...19957624853
genetic clustering of borna disease virus natural animal isolates, laboratory and vaccine strains strongly reflects their regional geographical origin.the aim of this study was to gain more detailed insights into the genetic evolution and variability of borna disease virus (bdv). phylogenetic analyses were performed on field viruses originating from naturally infected animals, the bdv vaccine strain 'dessau', four widely used laboratory strains and the novel bdv subtype no/98. four regions of the bdv genome were analysed: the complete p40, p10 and p24 genes and the 5'-untranslated region of the x/p transcript. bdv isolates from the same geogra ...200515659758
high frequency of chlamydial co-infections in clinically healthy sheep flocks.the epidemiological situation of ovine chlamydial infections in continental europe, especially germany is poorly characterised. using the german state of thuringia as a model example, the chlamydial sero- and antigen prevalence was estimated in thirty-two randomly selected sheep flocks with an average abortion rate lower than 1%. seven vaccinated flocks were reviewed separately.201121679409
