pulmonary pneumocystosis in nonhuman primates.pulmonary infection with pneumocystis carinii was detected in two aged owl monkeys (aotus trivirgatus) and two young chimpanzees (pan troglodytes). the clinical histories of the owl monkeys were similar and included progressive weight loss, anorexia, failure to thrive, and death. one of the owl monkeys had no concurrent disease, whereas the other had been experimentally inoculated with treponema pallidum 44 months before death. in both chimpanzees, an underlying myeloproliferative malignant neop ...1976814879
experimental syphilis in the chimpanzee. immunoglobulin class of early antibodies reactive with treponema pallidum. 19704193893
automated, quantitative microhemagglutination assay for treponema pallidum automated, quantitative microhemagglutination assay for antibodies to treponema pallidum was developed by using t. pallidum-sensitized erythrocytes and an automatic serial-dilution instrument. reactivity was found in sera from 54 rabbits and 6 chimpanzees infected with t. pallidum. reactivity was also found in sera from animals infected with t. pertenue, t. carateum, and t. cuniculi. no reactivity was found in sera from 75 normal rabbits or from 129 rabbits immunized with cultivatable trepone ...19694907009
screening wild and semi-free ranging great apes for putative sexually transmitted diseases: evidence of trichomonadidae infections.sexually transmitted diseases (stds) can persist endemically, are known to cause sterility and infant mortality in humans, and could have similar impacts in wildlife populations. african apes (i.e., chimpanzees, bonobos, and to a lesser extent gorillas) show multi-male mating behavior that could offer opportunities for std transmission, yet little is known about the prevalence and impact of stds in this endangered primate group. we used serology and pcr-based detection methods to screen biologic ...201526119266
