wild brown rats (rattus norvegicus) as a zoonotic risk on farms in england and wales.fear of wild rats as carriers of disease is embedded within our culture. surprisingly little is actually known about parasites in wild rat populations. in recent studies aimed to rectify this omission, farms in england and wales were surveyed to identify parasite species present in the rat populations. rats were found to be infected with numerous zoonotic parasites, including cryptosporidium, pasteurella [correction of pasturella], listeria, yersinia, coxiella, and hantavirus. these findings sug ...19968820193
diversity of avian pasteurella multocida strains based on capsular pcr typing and variation of the ompa and omph outer membrane proteins.one hundred avian pasteurella multocida isolates recovered from cases of fowl cholera and related infections in england and wales over a 13-year period were characterised by capsular pcr typing and analysis of outer membrane protein (omp) profiles. sixty-eight percent of the strains were of capsular type a, 14% were type f, 5% were type d, 4% were type b and 9% were untypable. nineteen distinct omp profiles (omp-types) were identified based mainly on molecular mass heterogeneity of the heat-modi ...200312458166
genetic diversity among pasteurella multocida strains of avian, bovine, ovine and porcine origin from england and wales by comparative sequence analysis of the 16s rrna gene.genetic diversity among 86 pasteurella multocida isolates was investigated by comparative sequence analysis of a 1468 bp fragment of the 16s rrna gene. the strains included 79 field isolates recovered from birds (poultry) (22), cattle (21), pigs (26) and sheep (10) within england and wales, four asian isolates associated with bovine haemorrhagic septicaemia, and the type strains of the three subspecies of p. multocida. dulcitol and sorbitol fermentation patterns were also determined to establish ...200415583172
infectious agents associated with respiratory disease in pheasants.in a case-control study of the infectious agents associated with natural outbreaks of respiratory disease in pheasants, 28 batches of birds from sites affected by disease and eight batches of birds from unaffected sites were examined by six veterinary laboratories in england, wales and scotland, and tested for mycoplasmas, other bacteria and viruses. sinusitis was the commonest sign of disease and was associated with mycoplasma gallisepticum as detected by pcr in the trachea (p < 0.05) and conju ...200212054135
