synthesis of 5-amino-1-(5-deoxy-beta-d-ribofuranosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamide and related 5'-deoxyimidazole ribonucleosides.5-amino-1-(beta-d-ribofuranosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamide (1, aica ribonucleoside) was converted in two steps to 5-amino-1-(5-deoxy-5-iodo-2,3-o-isopropylidene-beta-d-ribofuranosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamide (3) which was hydrogenated in the presence of pd/c to yield 5-amino-1-(5-deoxy-2,3-o-isopropylidene-beta-d-ribofuranosyl)imidazole-4-carboxamide (4). the dehydration of 4 yielded 5-amino-1-(5-deoxy-2,3-o-isopropylidene-beta-d-ribofuranosyl)imidazole-4-carbonitrile (7). the compounds 3, 4, and 7 w ...1975172632
clinical and immunologic responses of calves with colostrally acquired maternal antibody against parainfluenza-3 virus to homologous viral infection.exposure of colostrum-deprived calves and calves with colostrally acquired maternal antibody to aerosols of parainfluenza-3 (pi-3) virus resulted in signs of infection, leukopenia, and shedding of virus from the nasal passages. however, infection was not as severe in calves with colostrally acquired maternal antibody as it was in colostrum-deprived calves which did not have antibody to pi-3 virus before they were exposed. all calves responded immunologically to pi-3 virus, as indicated by resist ...1975168795
local and systemic response after simultaneous intranasal inoculation of temperature-sensitive mutants of parainfluenza 3, ibr and bovine adenovirus 3.triple seronegative calves were exposed by the nasal route to three (ts) mutants of bovine respiratory viruses (pi3, ibr, adeno3). after a single exposure, they responded with significant levels of serum antibodies to the three viruses. nasal antibodies were demonstrated for pi3 and adenovirus antigens. the failure to demonstrate nasal antibodies to ibr may be due to lack of sensitivity of the procedure used. when reexposed six weeks later, calves had sharp increases in levels of serum antibodie ...1975165126
immune response of cattle to intranasally or parenterally administered parainfluenza type 3 virus vaccines.the principal significance of pi-3 virus in the bovine respiratory disease complex would seem to be its role in predisposing the respiratory tract to bacterial infection by (5) disrupting the integrity of the superficial mucosa and (3) producing a more favourable milieu for bacterial growth. attention has therefore been given to establishing local immunity to preclude infection of superficial cells of the mucosa. criteria used to evaluate the degree of such immunity are (5) presence of specific ...1975165124
contribution to the study of the parainfluenza antigens.from epidemiological data it appeared that an epidemic of parainfluenza type 1 occurred in lyons in october-november 1967. thereafter a few sporadic cases were detected. then in 1970 strains were isolated which showed a change in the hemagglutinin antigen. the persistence of antibodies in the population is shorter than that of the other parainfluenza viruses (i. e. parainfluenza 3); it is not known if reinfections with parainfluenza 1 occur since there are cross-reactions by cf test between para ...1975165116
meaning of circulating antibody titers in the infections of parainfluenza 3 virus and rs virus.it is generally accepted that secretory antibodies play a very important role in the prevention of respiratory infections, but it is also considered that the circulating antibody level is a very significant indication of the establishment of infections. in parainfluenza 3 and rs virus infections, reinfections are very common but seem to depend more or less upon circulating antibody levels. there is a correlation between circulating antibody level and infection rate in parainfluenza 3 infection i ...1975165115
investigation of factors of probable significance in the pathogenesis of pneumonic pasteurellosis in cattle.six groups of ten beef calves six to eight months of age were shipped from western canada and observed untreated for one week after arrival. the following parameters were measured daily: body temperature, plasma fibrinogen, nasal bacterial mean colony counts of pasteurella hemolytica and pasteurella multocida, total and differential leukoyte counts, packed cell volumes and the following, twice during the week: serum and nasal antibody titres to p. hemolytica and parainfluenza-3 virus. the lungs ...1975164992

components of parainfluenza-3 virus, slp-strain, reacting in assays of cell-mediated immunity in cattle.parainfluenza-3 virus was isolated by affinity chromatography, including a purification step with immobilized lectin vicia erwilia. the peplomers of disintegrated virus were similarily isolated using another carbohydrate-specific lectin vicia crotalaria. the whole virion and the peplomers were both active as antigens in the leucocyte migration inhibition, lymphocyte stimulation and skin hypersensitivity tests. the remaining virus material, freed of detergents used for virus disintegration and co ...1977194552
maintenance of viability and comparison of identification methods for influenza and other respiratory viruses of humans.a comparison of hanks balanced salt solution, veal infusion broth (vib), and charcoal viral transport medium for maintaining viability of type a influenza virus indicated approximately equal survival of virus on all three media at -70 and 4 degrees c, whereas at 25 degrees c virus survived best in vib. vib supplemented with bovine serum albumin was used as transport medium in a community-wide surveillance of febrile respiratory disease for influenza viruses. unfrozen throat swab specimens were p ...1977195979
correlation of exposure to various respiratory pathogens with farmer's lung disease.complement-fixing antibodies (cfa) to a panel of microorganisms commonly associated with respiratory disease were measured in a number of agricultural populations. the panel included mycoplasma pneumoniae, influenza viruses a and b, parainfluenza virus types 1, 2, and 3, adenovirus, and respiratory syncytial virus. the agricultural populations were grouped according to a clinical history of farmer's lung disease (fld) and the presence of antibodies to the thermophilic actinomycetes (ta). farmers ...1977197136
