disease threats to the endangered iberian lynx (lynx pardinus).the iberian lynx, (lynx pardinus), is the most endangered felid in the world. to determine whether sympatric carnivores are reservoirs of pathogens posing a disease risk for the lynx, evidence of exposure to 17 viral, bacterial and protozoan agents was investigated in 176 carnivores comprising 26 free-living lynx, 53 domestic cats, 28 dogs, 33 red foxes (vulpes vulpes), 24 egyptian mongooses (herpestes ichneumon), 10 common genets (genetta genetta) and 2 eurasian badgers (meles meles) in the are ...200918555712
a serological survey of infectious disease in yellowstone national park's canid community.gray wolves (canis lupus) were reintroduced into yellowstone national park (ynp) after a >70 year absence, and as part of recovery efforts, the population has been closely monitored. in 1999 and 2005, pup survival was significantly reduced, suggestive of disease outbreaks.200919756151
infectious canine hepatitis in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in the united kingdom.the pathological findings are described in three cases of infectious canine hepatitis in free-ranging red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in england. the foxes died after short periods of clinical illness. mild jaundice and hepatic congestion were evident grossly. on histopathological examination, intranuclear inclusion bodies were visible in hepatocytes, in association with hepatocyte dissociation and necrosis, as well as in renal glomeruli, renal tubular epithelial cells and vascular endothelial cells. ...201020097890
serosurvey for canine distemper virus, canine adenovirus, leptospira interrogans, and toxoplasma gondii in free-ranging canids in scandinavia and svalbard.prevalence of antibodies reactive to canine distemper virus (cdv), canine adenovirus type 1 (cav-1), leptospira interrogans serovars canicola and icterohaemorrhagiae, and toxoplasma gondii were examined in free-ranging scandinavian canids. sampling included 275 red foxes (vulpes vulpes) from mainland norway, 60 arctic foxes (vulpes lagopus) from the high-arctic islands of svalbard, and 98 wolves (canis lupus) from the joint swedish-norwegian population. methods used included virus neutralization ...201020688639
serological and molecular epidemiology of canine adenovirus type 1 in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in the united kingdom.canine adenovirus type 1 (cav-1) causes infectious canine hepatitis (ich), a frequently fatal disease which primarily affects canids. in this study, serology (elisa) and molecular techniques (pcr/qpcr) were utilised to investigate the exposure of free-ranging red foxes (vulpes vulpes) to cav-1 in the united kingdom (uk) and to examine their role as a wildlife reservoir of infection for susceptible species. the role of canine adenovirus type 2 (cav-2), primarily a respiratory pathogen, was also e ...201627796367
infectious canine hepatitis in red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in wildlife rescue centres in the uk.outbreaks of infectious canine hepatitis are described in red foxes ( italic! vulpes vulpes) at two wildlife rescue centres in the uk. disease occurred in two-month-old to four-month-old juvenile foxes, which were held in small enclosures in groups of three to eight animals. the foxes died or were euthanased after a short clinical course, sometimes including neurological signs and jaundice, with a high case fatality rate. four red foxes submitted for postmortem examination had enlarged, congeste ...201627001767
molecular epidemiology of canine adenovirus type 1 and type 2 in free-ranging red foxes (vulpes vulpes) in date, no studies exist regarding the presence of canine adenovirus (cadv) infection in foxes in italy. furthermore, the majority of worldwide investigations regarding the presence of cadv in foxes have been carried out using common serological assays which are unable to differentiate between cadv type 1 and cadv type 2. to assess the presence of viral infection in italian red foxes (vulpes vulpes), thirty-two subjects shot during the regular hunting season in the province of pisa (tuscany, it ...201323201241
detection of canine adenovirus 1 in red foxes ( vulpes vulpes) and raccoons ( procyon lotor) in germany with a taqman real-time pcr assay.we developed a real-time (rt)pcr assay based on taqman probe technology for the specific detection of canine adenovirus 1 (cadv-1). the assay is able to detect three 50% tissue culture infectious dose/ml in cadv-1-containing cell culture supernatant. viral genomes were not amplified of canine adenovirus 2 or of several bovine, porcine, and avian adenoviruses. in silico analysis provided no indication of amplification of other heterologous genomes. the sensitivity of the real-time assay exceeded ...201728581363
novel adenoviruses detected in british mustelids, including a unique aviadenovirus in the tissues of pine martens (martes martes).several adenoviruses are known to cause severe disease in veterinary species. recent evidence suggests that canine adenovirus type 1 (cav-1) persists in the tissues of healthy red foxes (vulpes vulpes), which may be a source of infection for susceptible species. it was hypothesized that mustelids native to the uk, including pine martens (martes martes) and eurasian otters (lutra lutra), may also be persistently infected with adenoviruses. based on high-throughput sequencing and additional sanger ...201728749327
