A RT-PCR assay for the rapid recognition of border disease virus. (1/20)A reverse transcription--polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method was developed for the specific detection of border disease virus (BDV), using the primers PBD1 and PBD2 flanking a 225 bp DNA fragment, selected from the 5'noncoding region of the pestivirus genome. In tests on 70 pestiviruses it was shown to be BDV-specific. A closed, one-tube nested RT-PCR method employing general pestivirus outer primers (324 and 326), and the same BDV-specific inner primers (PBD1 and PBD2) in conjunction with a BDV-specific fluorogenic TaqMan probe also detected only BDV and was more sensitive. BDV-specific RT-PCR was used in combination with a PCR specific for bovine viral diarrhoea virus type 2 (BVDV2) to ascertain whether virus stocks contained mixtures of BDV and BVDV2. It was shown that the ovine pestivirus strains 175375 and 59386 were originally BDV, but after subculture had become contaminated with BVDV2. This explains a previously reported discrepancy in the genetic typing of 59386. Although the BDV-specific RT-PCR can also detect BDV in clinical samples, the assay is likely to be most useful for the rapid typing of laboratory pestivirus strains. (+info)
Experimental model of Border Disease Virus infection in lambs: comparative pathogenicity of pestiviruses isolated in France and Tunisia. (2/20)Pestiviruses have been isolated from live sheep pox Tunisian vaccines. Vaccination with these vaccines caused outbreaks of Border Disease in Tunisia. In order to study more precisely the pathogenicity of these isolates, three groups of eight four month old lambs from a pestivirus-free flock were infected by the intratracheal route with a French strain (AV) and two Tunisian isolates (SN3G and Lot21). Clinical, hematological, immunological and virological parameters were evaluated. The three groups developed mild fever and leucopaenia by day 3 to 6 post infection (pi). The differences in the weight curves were not significant. Viruses were isolated from the peripheral blood buffy coat cells by day 4 to 9 pi. Antibodies were present on day 16 pi following infection by the French strain and on day 21 pi with the Tunisian isolates. The results demonstrated that SN3G and Lot21 are almost similar to the French strain used as the reference strain. In field conditions, they could induce economical losses in naive flocks, alone or in association with other pathogens. (+info)
Cell phenotypes in the efferent lymph of sheep persistently infected with Border disease virus. (3/20)The prefemoral efferent lymphatics of sheep persistently infected (PI) with Border disease virus (BDV) were cannulated in order to study the effects of the virus on cells of the immune system. Efferent lymphocytes recovered from PI sheep were phenotyped using a panel of monoclonal antibodies (MoAb) specific for ovine cell-surface markers and compared to lymphocytes recovered from normal, healthy controls. PI sheep had an increased percentage of cells expressing the T cell-associated molecules CD5, CD4, CD8 and T19, also an increase in cells expressing CD1 and a population of cells expressing low levels of the T19 molecule which was not present in control sheep. The lymphocytes were examined for the presence of BDV using virus-specific MoAb. On average 8.5% of the efferent lymphocytes from PI sheep carried virus antigen. BDV antigen was also found in the mononuclear cells and connective tissue of lymph nodes indicating widespread virus dissemination within the lymphoid system of PI sheep. (+info)
Cytopathic and non-cytopathic biotypes of border disease virus induce polypeptides of different molecular weight with common antigenic determinants. (4/20)Ten monoclonal antibodies have been raised against lysates of cells infected with cytopathic border disease virus (BDV). These antibodies all recognize non-cytopathic BDV and react with a number of different strains of bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV). Studies with radiolabelled cell lysates show that all the antibodies precipitate two polypeptides of apparent Mr 80,000 and 130,000 from cells infected with cytopathic virus and a single polypeptide of apparent Mr 120,000 from cells infected with non-cytopathic virus. Two of the monoclonal antibodies react on immunoblots and show the same pattern of reactivity indicating that these three polypeptides are antigenically related. (+info)

Detection of Border disease virus in fetuses, stillbirths, and newborn lambs from natural and experimental infections. (6/20)The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) antigen detection in blood or fetal fluids and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) amplification in tissues for routine laboratory diagnosis of Border disease virus (BDV) infection. Samples from 67 fetuses, 6 stillbirths, and 11 lambs from 25 commercial flocks with suspicion of BDV abortion and 3 fetuses, 7 stillbirths, and 15 lambs obtained from an experimental infection with a local isolate (BDV genotype 4) were investigated. Presence of BDV was detected by RT-PCR in 7.9% of fetuses, 50% of stillbirths, and 50% of lambs from the commercial flocks analyzed, corresponding to 8 of the 25 farms (32%). A similar percentage of the lambs and stillbirths from the experimental infection were positive by RT-PCR of tissue samples (54.5%), and the highest positivity was detected in lymph node, thyroid gland, and kidney. The current study revealed that RT-PCR analysis of stillbirths and lambs with clinical symptoms is more suitable than the analysis of fetuses to confirm the presence of BDV in a flock. Pestiviral antigen was detected by antigen ELISA in a high proportion of fetuses (24/58) and stillbirths (3/4) from commercial flocks, but in lambs, the presence of colostral antibodies masked the detection of the antigen by ELISA. Nevertheless, in lambs from the experimental infection that were not fed colostrum, antigen ELISA was less efficient than RT-PCR in detecting viral presence in stillbirths and lambs. Antigen ELISA is therefore recommended for fetuses with advanced autolysis that can adversely affect RNA integrity. (+info)

Experimental infection of pigs with Border disease virus isolated from Pyrenean chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica). (8/20)Between 2001 and 2007, several outbreaks of disease associated with Border disease virus (BDV) infection were reported in the central Pyrenees (northeast Spain) and were associated with a major reduction in chamois (Rupicapra pyrenaica) populations. At the same time, wild boars (Sus scrofa) from the same area were found to be seropositive to this pestivirus, without showing clinical signs. The present study examines the susceptibility of domestic swine and the course of the infection with a BDV strain isolated from naturally infected chamois. Twenty pigs were inoculated with 1 x 10(7) TCID(50) (50% tissue culture infective dose) by oronasal route, and 16 control pigs received Eagles sterile Minimal Essential Medium. Serologic (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and virus neutralization test) and reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction assays were performed on serum samples obtained at 0, 3, 7, 10, 14, 21, and 31 days postinoculation (dpi). All infected pigs were viremic from 3 to 14 dpi. After 14 dpi, all infected animals developed an antibody response against the homologous virus. Clinical signs or histologic lesions were not observed in inoculated pigs. The present work demonstrates the susceptibility of domestic swine to a BDV strain of chamois origin. (+info)
This condition is most commonly found in sheep and goats that are raised on overgrazed pastures or those that are fed moldy or contaminated feed. The worm that causes border disease is a type of liver fluke, which is a parasite that lives in the animal's liver and lungs.
Symptoms: The symptoms of border disease can include weight loss, anemia, coughing, difficulty breathing, and a thickened, irregular border to the hoof. The affected animals may also have a rough, scaly coat and may lose their appetite.
Diagnosis: Border disease is typically diagnosed based on a physical examination of the animal and laboratory tests, such as blood tests or X-rays. The presence of liver flukes in the animal's liver and lungs can be confirmed through these tests.
Treatment: Treatment for border disease typically involves the use of anti-parasitic drugs to kill the liver flukes. In severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary to provide supportive care, such as intravenous fluids and oxygen therapy.
Prevention: Preventing border disease involves taking steps to reduce the risk of infection with liver flukes. This can include providing animals with clean water and a balanced diet, avoiding overgrazing of pastures, and using anthelmintic drugs to control internal parasites.
Prognosis: The prognosis for animals with border disease is generally good if the condition is diagnosed and treated early. However, if left untreated, the condition can be severe and potentially fatal.
There are several types of pestivirus infections, including:
1. Bovine viral diarrhea (BVD): This is one of the most common pestivirus infections in cattle, and it can cause a range of symptoms, including diarrhea, fever, and weight loss.
2. Border disease: This is a serious pestivirus infection that affects sheep and goats, and it can cause severe symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, and death.
3. Maedi-visna: This is a progressive pestivirus infection that affects sheep and goats, and it can cause weight loss, anemia, and death.
4. Sumatran sheep virus: This is a rare pestivirus infection that affects sheep and goats in Indonesia, and it can cause severe symptoms such as fever, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Pestivirus infections are transmitted through direct contact with infected animals or contaminated feces and urine. They can also be spread through blood transfusions and contaminated needles.
Diagnosis of pestivirus infections is typically made through a combination of clinical signs, laboratory tests, and serology. Treatment is primarily supportive, and may include antibiotics for secondary bacterial infections.
Prevention of pestivirus infections includes vaccination, strict biosecurity measures, and proper handling and disposal of animal waste.
In summary, pestivirus infections are a group of viral diseases that can affect cattle and other ruminants, causing a range of symptoms and potentially leading to severe illness and death. Diagnosis is made through laboratory tests and serology, and treatment is primarily supportive. Prevention includes vaccination, biosecurity measures, and proper waste handling.
Sheep diseases can be caused by a variety of factors, including bacteria, viruses, parasites, and environmental factors. Here are some common sheep diseases and their meanings:
1. Scrapie: A fatal neurological disorder that affects sheep and goats, caused by a prion.
2. Ovine Progressive Pneumonia (OPP): A contagious respiratory disease caused by Mycobacterium ovipneumoniae.
3. Maedi-Visna: A slow-progressing pneumonia caused by a retrovirus, which can lead to OPP.
4. Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD): A highly contagious viral disease that affects cloven-hoofed animals, including sheep and goats.
5. Bloat: A condition caused by gas accumulation in the rumen, which can lead to abdominal pain and death if not treated promptly.
6. Pneumonia: An inflammation of the lungs, often caused by bacteria or viruses.
7. Cryptosporidiosis: A diarrheal disease caused by Cryptosporidium parvum, which can be fatal in young lambs.
8. Babesiosis: A blood parasitic disease caused by Babesia oviparasites, which can lead to anemia and death if left untreated.
9. Fascioliasis: A liver fluke infection that can cause anemia, jaundice, and liver damage.
10. Anthrax: A serious bacterial disease caused by Bacillus anthracis, which can be fatal if left untreated.
Sheep diseases can have a significant impact on the health and productivity of flocks, as well as the economy of sheep farming. It is important for sheep farmers to be aware of these diseases and take appropriate measures to prevent and control them.
The disease is typically transmitted through close contact with infected animals, and can be spread through respiratory droplets, contaminated feces, or contaminated surfaces. The virus can also be transmitted from dam to fetus during pregnancy, causing congenital BVD.
BVD-MD is characterized by acute diarrhea, vomiting, and fever, as well as mucosal lesions in the gastrointestinal tract. In severe cases, it can lead to dehydration, electrolyte imbalances, and even death.
Diagnosis of BVD-MD is typically made through a combination of clinical signs, laboratory tests such as PCR or ELISA, and histopathological examination of tissue samples. There is no specific treatment for the disease, but supportive care such as fluids, electrolytes, and antibiotics may be provided to manage symptoms.
Prevention of BVD-MD includes vaccination of animals at risk, strict biosecurity measures, and separation of infected animals from healthy ones. Control programs should also include testing of animals for the presence of the virus and monitoring of herds for signs of the disease.
