Epidemiological field studies of animal populations. (1/378)

Numerous survey designs have been developed for epidemiological field studies of human populations, most of which are also applicable to field studies of animal poulations. Each design has its own advantages and disadvantages. The final design selected for a particular study depends upon such factors as the overall purpose of the study, the geographic dimensions of the study area, the diseases incidence or prevalence and species to be studied as well as the planned use for the data. Population dynamics including the distribution and density of the species to be studied are factors that should also be considered in the initial design of a study. A surveillance system, using mailed questionnaire data and a subsequent survey using direct interviews of validate the data in a statewide study of swine birth defects are used to illustrate some of the techniques that can be applied to domestic animal populations in a fairly large geographic area. The type of data collected, its use and its limitations are also considered.  (+info)

Studies on time-kill kinetics of different classes of antibiotics against veterinary pathogenic bacteria including Pasteurella, Actinobacillus and Escherichia coli. (2/378)

A systematic analysis of the bacteriostatic/bactericidal effect of several antibiotics used in veterinary medicine was carried out by time-kill kinetic analysis using P. haemolytica, P. multocida, A. pleuropneumoniae, and E. coli. The antibiotics tested were enrofloxacin, danofloxacin, erythromycin, tilmicosin, penicillin G, ceftiofur and tetracycline. Unexpectedly, the antibiotics well characterized as bacteriostatic agents against human pathogens such as tetracycline and macrolides, showed bactericidal activity against P. haemolytica and A. pleuropneumoniae. In contrast, tetracycline and erythromycin were bacteriostatic and tilmicosin was bactericidal against P. multocida. In addition, P. multocida was killed by fluoroquinolones at a slower rate than the other bacteria. Spectrum analysis revealed that ceftiofur and tilmicosin were good substrates of the universal efflux pump, AcrA/B, but penicillin and tetracycline were not. The fluoroquinolones were modest substrates for AcrA/B.  (+info)

An antiserum raised against the recombinant cytoplasmic tail of the human CD43 glycoprotein identifies CD43 in many mammalian species. (3/378)

Leukosialin or CD43 is a heavily O-glycosylated transmembrane protein expressed on all cells of the haematopoietic cell lineage with the exception of red blood cells and mature B cells. This antigen has been identified in human, mouse and rat with monoclonal antibodies. Although orthologues of many human and rodent leucocyte cell surface antigens have been described in recent years, CD43, despite its abundance on human and rodent cells, remained uncharacterized in other vertebrate species. The comparison of CD43 amino acid sequences from human, mouse and rat indicated a high level of homology in the cytoplasmic domain. A serum, (p.aCD43cp) raised against the recombinant cytoplasmic tail of the human CD43, was shown not only to recognize human CD43, but it bound to putative CD43 orthologues in many mammalian species. CD43 was found to be expressed in the same leucocyte subpopulations and circumstantial evidence suggested that CD43 is also regulated similarly during leucocyte ontogeny in all species investigated. As CD43+ cells were readily observed in fixed tissues, the p.aCD43cp serum may be used as a reliable reagent for the verification of the haematopoietic origin of infiltrations and, used together with other reagents, for the serological characterization of normal and pathological lymphoid tissues and lymphoid infiltrations in experimental work and in animal disease.  (+info)

Proteoglycan turnover during development of spontaneous osteoarthrosis in guinea pigs. (4/378)

OBJECTIVE: The study was performed to clarify the metabolic background of the variations in proteoglycan concentrations, relating to ageing and the spontaneous development of osteoarthrosis in guinea pigs. METHODS: Six-, 9- and 12-month-old Hartley guinea pigs were injected intraperitoneally with Na2(35)SO4. The incorporation and degradation of various proteoglycans were analyzed in different areas of tibial articular cartilage during the development of osteoarthrosis. RESULTS: Proteoglycan synthesis was most active in the uncalcified cartilage of 6-month animals and highest in the medial compartment with its presumably higher load. The breakdown of proteoglycans decreased with age. The onset of osteoarthrosis was associated with decreased synthesis of large and small proteoglycans, while the rate of degradation remained unchanged. CONCLUSION: During onset of osteoarthrosis the synthesis of large proteoglycans gradually becomes insufficient to compensate for the simultaneous degradation. This differs from findings in more rapidly progressing, experimental secondary osteoarthrosis, where a substantial increase in the rate of degradation is more conspicuous.  (+info)

Development of an ELISA for detection of myxoma virus-specific rabbit antibodies: test evaluation for diagnostic applications on vaccinated and wild rabbit sera. (5/378)

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed and compared with 2 reference diagnostic tests (indirect immunofluorescence [IF] and complement fixation) to detect myxoma virus-specific antibodies in sera from 50 rabbits experimentally vaccinated with an attenuated strain of myxoma virus or with a Shope fibroma virus. The ELISA was highly specific (100% specificity) and sensitive (100%, 21 days after homologous vaccination). In a comparison of the ELISA with the IF test in 128 wild rabbits from France, discrepant results were obtained in only 11 (8.6%) animals, which were positive with the ELISA and negative with the IF test. The higher sensitivity and the good specificity of the ELISA was confirmed in a serologic survey of 118 rabbits from 2 Kerguelen (Indian Ocean) islands, where the prevalence of myxomatosis varied considerably. The ELISA is an alternative serologic test for diagnosis, vaccine evaluation, and seroepidemiologic surveys of myxomatosis.  (+info)

Public health response to a potentially rabid bear cub--Iowa, 1999. (6/378)

On August 27, 1999, a 5-6 month-old black bear cub in a petting zoo in Clermont, Iowa, died after developing acute central nervous system signs; the initial direct fluorescent-antibody (DFA) test results available on August 28 indicated the bear had rabies. On August 29, in response to the positive laboratory report, the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) initiated a campaign to identify and inform persons potentially exposed to the bear's saliva. Within 72 hours, IDPH staff verified contact and exposure information for approximately 350 persons. Subsequent testing found no evidence of rabies virus in brain or spinal cord tissues. This report describes the public health response to this potential rabies outbreak and reviews testing procedures and protocols for rabies.  (+info)

Baroreflex sensitivity predicts the induction of ventricular arrhythmias by cesium chloride in rabbits. (7/378)

Previous studies have shown that the autonomic nervous system plays an important role in the genesis of ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with long QT syndrome, and in cesium chloride (Cs)-induced VT in animals. The present study investigated whether baroreflex sensitivity predicts the induction of VT by Cs in the rabbit in vivo. Monophasic action potentials (MAPs) of the left ventricular endocardium were recorded simultaneously with the surface ECG in 27 rabbits. Rabbits were divided into 4 groups based on the Cs-induced ventricular arrhythmias: (1) no ventricular premature contractions (No-VPC group), (2) single or paired VPC (VPC group), (3) monomorphic VT (MVT group), and (4) polymorphic VT (PVT group). Baroreflex sensitivity was significantly lower in the MVT and PVT groups than in the No-VPC and VPC groups. The plasma norepinephrine concentration before Cs injection was significantly higher in the MVT group than in the other 3 groups, and the norepinephrine concentration after Cs injection was significantly higher in the MVT and PVT groups than in the No-VPC and VPC groups. Baroreflex sensitivity was negatively correlated with the norepinephrine concentration before Cs injection. These results suggest that autonomic nervous system dysfunction, as defined by reduced baroreflex sensitivity, and elevated plasma norepinephrine concentrations predict increased susceptibility to Cs-induced VT.  (+info)

In vitro microbiological characterization of novel cyclic homopentapeptides, CP-101,680 and CP-163,234, for animal health use. (8/378)

Two cyclic homopentapeptides, CP-101,680 and CP-163,234 [6a-(3',4'-dichlorophenylamino) analogs of viomycin and capreomycin, respectively], were identified as novel antibacterial agents for the treatment of animal disease, especially for livestock respiratory disease. The in vitro microbiological characterization of both CP-101,680 and CP-163,234 was carried out using their parent compounds, viomycin and capreomycin, as controls. This characterization included antibacterial spectrum, influence of media, inoculum size, pH, EDTA, polymixin B nonapeptide (PMBN), serum, cell-free protein synthesis inhibition, and time-kill kinetics. Our results indicated that the capreomycin analog, CP-163,234, showed slightly improved in vitro potency over the viomycin analog, CP-101,680. Both analogs showed very potent cell-free protein synthesis inhibition activity and were bactericidal against Pasteurella haemolytica, P. multocida and Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae at the level of 4 times and 8 times MICs. CP-163,234 was bactericidal at the level of 4x and 8x MIC against E. coli, but re-growth was observed after 24 hours incubation at both concentrations of CP-101,680.  (+info)

In recent years, as long as the rapid development of aquaculture, the occurrence of aquatic animal diseases increase year by year, which restrict the sustained, steady, and healthy development of aquaculture. So the rapid diagnosis of aquatic animal disease is particularly important for their prevention and control. In the present work, an Android-based aquatic animal disease diagnostic system has been developed in order to provide more convenient and effective aquatic animal disease diagnostic services to ordinary farmers. The designed system includes the part of the man-machine interface (user interface, expert interface), inference engine, the case base, knowledge base and so on. Interactive interface is a visual display interface. Inference engine was written in the Java programming language. Case base and knowledge base were created using SQLite. The results show that ordinary farmers can easily use this system to realize the convenient, fast, and accurate access to the findings of disease
Animal disease traceability or knowing where diseased and at-risk animals are, where theyve been, and when is important to ensuring a rapid response when animal disease events take place. Although animal disease traceability does not prevent disease, an efficient and accurate traceability system reduces the number of animals and response time involved in a disease investigation; which, in turn, reduces the economic impact on owners and affected communities.. The current approach to traceability in the United States is the result of significant discussion and compromise. Federal policy regarding traceability has been amended several times over the past decade based on stakeholder feedback, particularly from the cattle industry. In early 2010, USDA announced a new approach for responding to and controlling animal diseases, referred to as the ADT framework. Key principles of the 2010 framework include ...

The official medicines control laboratory in an EU country inspects the production and testing documentation of the manufacturer of the veterinary vaccine and certifies the vaccine before it is released on the market.. Evira tests a part of the vaccine batches in the marketplace every year. In addition, a vaccine can be tested by using various tests whenever there is suspicion that a vaccine has caused adverse reactions for an animal or when the efficacy of the vaccine has not been as expected.. Evira does not test all batches but focuses on vaccines that are deemed to constitute the greatest threat to the status of animal diseases in Finland. For example, Finland is free of Newcastle disease in poultry, so live poultry vaccines are tested for the presence of this virus. Any spreading of the virus vaccine to poultry could jeopardise freedom from disease and incur significant costs.. Few veterinary vaccines for sale in Finland ...
The proposed conceptual framework clarifies understanding of the key relationships between elements of mitigation and their technical characteristics, an essential precursor to economic analysis. The effectiveness of mitigation is usually measured in terms of prevalence or incidence reduction. But prevalence and incidence are not in themselves of economic interest. They matter because the lower are prevalence or incidence rates the greater the value, or benefits, obtained as outputs from resources committed to production.. Each of the three stages identified has been presented as a distinct phase in the sequential progression of a given pathogen from its first appearance through to its eventual control. In practice, mitigation for a defined pathogen in a target population (e.g. the poultry population of a country or region) can only be attributed to one stage at a time. However, a national or regional strategy for animal health, such as the EUs, will contain a mix of stages according to the ...

This thesis investigates the feasibility of using spatial survival modelling techniques to develop dynamic space-time predictive models of risk for infectious animal disease epidemics. Examples of diseases with potentially vast socioeconomic impacts include avian influenza, bovine tuberculosis and foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), all of which have received wide coverage in the recent media. The relatively sporadic occurrence of such large scale animal disease outbreaks makes determination of optimal control policies difficult, and policy makers must balance the relative impacts of different response strategies based on little prior information. It is in this situation that the use of mathematical and statistical modelling techniques can provide powerful insights into the future course of an infectious epidemic. The motivating example for this thesis is the outbreak of FMD in Devon in 2001, however we are interested in developing more general techniques that can be applied to other animal diseases. ...

Exotic animal diseases (EADs) are characterized by their capacity to spread global distances, causing impacts on animal health and welfare with significant economic consequences. We offer a critique of current import risk analysis approaches employed in the EAD field, focusing on their capacity to assess complex systems at a policy level. To address the shortcomings identified, we propose a novel method providing a systematic analysis of the likelihood of a disease incursion, developed by reference to the multibarrier system employed for the United Kingdom. We apply the network model to a policy-level risk assessment of classical swine fever (CSF), a notifiable animal disease caused by the CSF virus.

This is the first of a series on digital electroencephalography. The present discussion deals with:. 1. Changing electrode montages for display after recording is completed (so-called remontaging). (To read about the principles of forming electrode derivations and montages visit Holliday and Williams, VNN, 1999.). 2. Changing frequency limits after recording is completed.. 1. Changing Electrode Montages After Recording ("remontaging).. Veterinary EEG recording typically is performed under certain limitations. Because of the cost of equipment, most veterinary laboratories have had polygraphs with only 6 or 8 EEG channels. By comparison, thirty-two channels are now used in routine recordings from human patients and even more in some specialized studies. In addition to monetary limits, there is an inherent limit on the number of electrodes that can be placed on the head of most veterinary patients, whose calvaria are often smaller even than those of children.. If a larger number of EEG channels ...

My research integrates ideas from a number of scientific fields including evolutionary genetics, virology, ecology, and infectious disease epidemiology. I conduct human and animal disease surveillance, virus isolation and characterization (genetic and phenotypic), then conduct large-scale analyses to generate hypotheses that are tested in the laboratory using tissue culture and animal models. I am primarily interested in the roles played by mutation, natural selection, recombination/reassortment and host immune response on virus diversity within an individual, during transmission within a population and during inter-species transmission between hosts. I work mostly on influenza but also study a wide range of respiratory and enteric viruses. My research program is directed at efforts to better understand viral disease ecosystems in Asia, specifically the animal-human interface, to inform and enhance disease control.

Downloadable! We examine the economic tradeoff between the costs of pre-event preparedness and post-event response to the potential introduction of an infectious animal disease. In a simplified case study setting, we examine the conditions for optimality of an enhanced pre-event detection system considering various characteristics of a potential infectious cattle disease outbreak, costs of postevent response actions. We show that the decision to invest in pre-event preparedness activities depends on such factors as probability of disease introduction, disease spread rate, relative costs, ancillary benefits, and effectiveness of mitigation strategies.
The U.S. Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) issued a proposed rule on August 11 to establish general regulations for improving the traceability of U.S. livestock moving interstate if an animal disease event takes place..

The United States agricultural industry generates more than $1 trillion in annual economic activity and provides an abundant food supply for the United States and other countries. Since the 9/11 attacks, the United States government has recognized the vulnerability of the agriculture industry and the potential for the deliberate introduction of animal and plant diseases or agroterrorism. An agroterrorist attack could have enormous economic consequences, disrupt the entire system of critical infrastructure and affect all Americans. The federal and state governments must establish a comprehensive foreign animal disease strategy that is equal to the risk posed by agroterrorism and/or natural outbreaks. Critical elements of this strategy must reconcile conflicting worldviews and existing tensions between the federal and state government to synchronize all remediation efforts while increasing the nations preparedness. Finally, the national strategy must address the population of first responders by ...

FARFA lodged its opposition to ADT on many points:. First, ADTs costs significantly outweigh its benefits. The USDA has failed to provide scientific support justifying these new regulations. Traceability is an unproven approach, particularly in light of the success of tuberculosis and brucellosis vaccination programs. When FARFA submitted a very specific list requesting solid facts and data to support the need for Animal Disease Traceability, the majority of the questions remained unanswered (which sounds either like a case of "We really dont have the answers for that" or maybe even "If we ignore them theyll go away").. Second, FARFA maintains that the agencys Regulatory Impact Analysis is significantly flawed and fails to properly address the costs of the proposed rules.. Its an understatement that government agencies routinely and severely underestimate the costs and impact on those who are regulated. ADT is no exception. The agency is "encouraging the use of lower-cost technology" such ...

The Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP) has begun the process of revising its 18-year-old guidance on adjuvanted vaccines for use in animals. CVMP thinks an update is needed to reflect advances in regulatory understanding of new and classical adjuvants, specifically by revising the criteria for benefit-risk assessments and data requirements for marketing applications.. Members of CVMPs Immunologicals Working Party (IWP) have made the case for change in a draft concept paper. As IWP sees it, the veterinary vaccine industry has developed adjuvants that induce less local and general reactions in animals since the current guidance was released in 1998. Yet, in the absence of updated regulatory advice on adjuvants in veterinary vaccines, manufacturers have shied away from including them in their products. Veterinary vaccine developers reportedly think the current guidance is "inadequate" with regard to new substances.. The European Medicines Agencys (EMA) CVMP wants to change ...

Once every two weeks, community interviewers, usually traveling by bicycle, visit the families. During the first year of the study, researchers visited 1,500 households. They collected data on humans such as fever, diarrhea, and respiratory illnesses and similar disease data for animals. For animals, researchers also recorded reproductive illnesses, nervous system illnesses, mastitis, and death. And they collected socioeconomic data for the families including age of family members, household income, and number of children. If an animal gets sick, the families can call the toll free number and a veterinarian will come out within 24 hours so the family doesnt have to wait until the next scheduled visit.. "One of the big things is that we have been able to simultaneously monitor health in people and the animals they live with," said Mwangi. "This is not the standard approach in the surveillance of infectious diseases ...

Noninfectious diseases cannot be spread from one animal to another. Many of these diseases are similar to noninfectious diseases in humans. Cancer affects many older dogs, cats, and other animals. Pets and many wild animals can suffer from arteriosclerosis. This is a disease in which the blood vessels become blocked. Many animals can also develop cloudy growths, called cataracts, over their eyes.
