epidemiology of viral pathogens of free-ranging dogs and indian foxes in a human-dominated landscape in central india.there is an increasing concern that free-ranging domestic dog (canis familiaris) populations may serve as reservoirs of pathogens which may be transmitted to wildlife. we documented the prevalence of antibodies to three viral pathogens, canine parvovirus (cpv), canine distemper virus (cdv) and canine adenovirus (cav), in free-ranging dog and sympatric indian fox (vulpes bengalensis) populations in and around the great indian bustard wildlife sanctuary, in maharashtra, central india. a total of 2 ...201425135467
phylogenetic analysis of canine parvovirus partial vp2 gene in india.a total of 85 samples (58.0 %) were found to be positive for canine parvovirus (cpv) by pcr assay (hfor/hrev primers) out of 158 suspected faecal samples of dogs collected from various states/union territories of india. nine cpv isolates could be obtained in a-72 cell line. the sequencing of the partial vp2 gene of cpv identified the predominant cpv strain as cpv-2a (ser297ala) with one cpv-2b (ser297ala) and another cpv-2a variant strain (ser297gly). several non-synonymous and synonymous mutati ...201424174279
assessing demographic and epidemiologic parameters of rural dog populations in india during mass vaccination campaigns.mass vaccination of dogs is a mainstay for efforts to control rabies and other viral pathogens. the success of such programs is a function of the ability to vaccinate sufficient proportions of animals to develop herd immunity. however, fully assessing success in reaching target vaccination-levels and in understanding the outcome of mass vaccination efforts is hindered if insufficient information is available on the demographics of dog populations and the prevalence of the targeted pathogens. whi ...201323664490
