ecology of staphylococcus aureus: characterization of strains from chicken.the majority of s. aureus strains isolated from beak-swabs and pathological processes in chicken shows coagulation of human plasma (not of bovine plasma), crystal violet-type a, hemolysine-type a, formation of fibrinolysin, not formation of dnase and reactions with the experimental phage a1591. because of the absence of dnase-formation and the reaction-specificity for phage a1591 we propose to designate these strains as host-specific variety gallinae of s. aureus. the strains from chicken are co ...1977610065

diversionary role of hoofed game in the transmission of lyme disease determine whether the presence of ungulates may inhibit transmission of the agent of lyme disease (borrelia burgdorferi) while promoting the abundance of its european vector tick (ixodes ricinus), we compared the feeding density of subadult ticks on roe deer (capreolus capreolus), red deer (cervus elaphus), fallow deer (dama dama), and wild sheep (ovis ammon) near berlin and in brandenburg state, germany. the prevalence of spirochetal infection in these ticks was compared with that in ticks s ...19938517488
[diagnostic measures on the occasion of a q-fever epidemic in a sheep flock in berlin].this report gives an account of a q-fever infection in flocks of sheep, taking into consideration the epidemiological aspects. in the inner organs, and particularly in the central nervous system of affected animals, rickettsial as well as chlamydial agents were directly demonstrated by immunofluorescence and specific staining methods, as well as by isolation via cell culture. serological examination showed antibodies against both agents in sheep from flocks where the outbreak occurred.19958594853

[dangerous dogs in berlin in comparison to the dog population--ways to reduce the dangerousness of dogs].the law for handling and control of dogs in berlin of september 29, 2004 was enacted to prevent the risks for humans and animals when ever they have contact with dogs. "dangerous dogs" are defined by this law. there are 10 breeds of dogs supposed to be dangerous due to specific characteristics of their breed ("listed breeds"). the dangerousness of a dog's breed is not identical with the dangerousness of an individual dog. the subject of this study is to examine the potential dangerousness of dog ...200617172131
