specificity in response of vaccinated swine and mice to challenge exposure with strains of erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae of various serotypes.swine and mice were vaccinated with standard erysipelas adsorbate bacterins made from erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae of serotype 2 and were subsequently exposed to pathogenic strains of e rhusiopathiae, serotypes 1, 2, 4, 9, 10, and 11. response to challenge of immunity in swine was determined by presence of urticarial lesions at the sites of intradermal injection of culture; response in mice was determined by the quantal (live-dead) method. after vaccination with standard bacterins, swine and mic ...1979112891
[the student, the cetacean and swine-fever. a minor epidemic after dissection of a globicephale].a whale (globicephalus melas), stranded on the north coast of finistere, was the origin of a minor epidemic of baker-rosenbach erysipeloid. the clinical picture was that usually seen after contamination by marine animals (spiny fish, crabs, molluscs). to our knowledge, this is the first time that a marine mammal has been found to be infected by erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae.1975125872
[immunity against erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae infection by means of active immunization using homologous neuraminidase (author's transl)].neuraminidase may play a role as a pathogenic factor in erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae infection. the protective effect of active immunization with purified neuraminidase was therefore tested in an infection experiment in white mice. mice were immunized 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 times i.p. with erysipelothrix neuraminidase. a control group received 10 injections with physiological saline. the infective dose varied between 7 and 7 x 10(7) cells. while all control animals infected with 7 x 10(1) germs died, ...1976134541
effect of experimentally induced trichinellosis on the infection with erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae in rats.infection with erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae in rats infested 20 days earlier with trichinella spiralis developed more slowly, the clinical and pathoanatomic changes in the joints were expressed to a less extend, and the mortality rate was lower. the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, the precipitin formation and the phagocytic activity of the macrophages did not considerably change. experiments carried out to elucidate this fact did not reveal any antigenic or antagonistic relationships between par ...1978207030
immunological experimental arthritis in pigs. ii. the level of complement in the pigs immunized with the erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae and virus of aujeszky's disease.the level of complement was studied in 3 groups of pigs. one group was immunized with erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae and two remaining groups with virus of aujeszky's disease. the lowest titers, irrespective of the starting level were shown to exist in all the studied groups in the third week after the last dose of the virus.1978219811

corynebacterium equi infection complicating neoplastic disease.corynebacterium equi, a soil-residing diphtheroid pathogenic in horses, swine and cows, caused pulmonary infection with bacteremia in two patients with lymphomas. both patients were being treated with immunosuppressive therapy, as were the patients in three previously reported human cases. unless certain characteristics of these organisms are recognized, they may be regarded as normal flora or contaminating diphtheroids. they could also be mistaken for other gram-positive rods, such as bacillus ...1977326031
[erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae infections. general review of 31 cases of septicemia with endocarditis reported in the literature (author's transl)].erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae is widely distributed in nature (animal, soil). it is commonly known as the causative agent of cutaneous lesions called "erysipeloid of rosenbach". only 31 cases of bacterial endocarditis have been reported in the literature. the etiologic diagnosis of esysipelothrix infection was established by the presence of bacteria in blood cultures or heart-valve cultures. immunological study is unusual owing to the rapid course of the infection. the histologic observation of h ...1977327415
the variable response of bacteria to excess ferric iron in host tissues.the enhancement by exogenous ferric iron, both systemic and local, of the infectivity of 120 strains of bacteria, representing 17 genera, was measured in the skin of guinea-pigs. systemic iron enhanced only 23% of 115 strains, and local iron 49% of 71 strains. systemic iron, by an apparently anti-inflammatory action, depressed the size of lesions produced by 27 of the non-enhanced strains from nine of the genera tested. for most strains, the degree of enhancement was small, ranging from 2- to 8- ...1979372534
[experimental study on erysipeloid arthritis in the rabbit after blockage of lymph drainage].the lymph drainage was radically blocked in 29 rabbits. one to three days after the operation erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae was inoculated subcutaneously into the animals. some control animals were injected with agents of erysipelas and some only with the sterile solution without additional blockade of the lymph drainage. light and electron microscopy as well as immuno-histological tests showed that the erysipelas arthritis developing in rabbits closely resembles human rheumatoid arthritis with e ...1979392987

erysipelas arthritis in swine: concentrations of complement and third component of complement in synovia.concentrations of hemolytic complement and of 3rd component of complement were determined in serums and in synovia of normal and arthritic joints in swine affected with arthritis experimentally produced by the inoculation of erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. mean concentrations of complement in arthritic joints were increased from 24.7 to 37.5 50% hemolytic units of complement per milliliter. third component of complement, expressed as a percentage of the serum concentration, was increased from a me ...19761247196
specific detection and semiquantitation of microorganisms in tissue by nucleic acid hybridization. ii. investigation of synovia from pigs with chronic erysipelothrix arthritis.synovial tissues from animals with chronic erysipelothrix arthritis were examined by a technique based on rna-dna hybridization in an attempt to detect the inducing organism, erysipelothrix insidiosa (ei). twelve synovial specimens from 5 animals whose joints lacked culturable ei also lacked ei detectable by this technique. because the technique is capable of detecting approximately one organism per 50 mammalian cells, it is concluded that no more than this number were present in the involved ti ...19761252268
