Experimental bluetongue virus superinfection in calves previously immunized with bluetongue virus serotype 8.

of a superinfection with bluetongue virus serotype 1 (BTV1) was evaluated on two groups of four calves. One group received a commercial inactivated BTV serotype 8 (BTV8) vaccine. This group and the ...

Diagnostic performance and application of two commercial cell viability assays in foot-and-mouth disease research.

quantitative spectrometric reading to replace the time-consuming and subjective microscopic (MIC) evaluation of the FMD virus-induced cytopathic effect (CPE). Therefore, the diagnostic performance of two ...

Qualitative risk assessment in a data-scarce environment: a model to assess the impact of control measures on spread of African Swine Fever.

in the EU if disease were introduced. The aim was to develop a tool to evaluate how current control or preventive measures mitigate the risk of spread and giving decision makers the means to review how ...

Cross-reactivity of antibodies in some commercial deoxynivalenol test kits against some fusariotoxins.

DONQ, and MYCONTROLDON designed for deoxynivalenol (DON) determination in food and feedstuffs was evaluated against nivalenol, 3-acetylDON, 15-acetylDON, de-epoxy metabolite 1 of DON, DON-3╬▓-glucoside, ...

Sampling strategy, occurrence and diversity of free-living protozoa in domestic refrigerators.

Evaluation of a sampling method to recover free-living protozoa (FLP) from plastic surfaces. Application of the method on different areas inside domestic refrigerators. METHODS AND RESULTS: Plastic coupons ...

A duplex real-time RT-PCR for the detection of bluetongue virus in bovine semen.

evaluated using 89 extended semen samples from 19 bulls showing typical clinical signs of a natural BTV-8 infection. Forty-eight samples were positive, 30 were doubtful and 11 were negative. Infectious BTV-8 ...

No H- and L-type cases in Belgium in cattle diagnosed with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (1999-2008) aging seven years and older.

(PrPres). In these types, the proportion of the un-, mono- and di-glycosylated fragments of PrP (glycoprofile) is also atypical and represents an effective diagnostic parameter. This study evaluated the ...

The positive adjuvant effect of chitosan on antigen-specific cell-mediated immunity after chickens vaccination with live Newcastle disease vaccine.

given by oculo-nasal route to one-day-old chickens with live Newcastle disease (ND) vaccine. The immune response has been evaluated during three independent vaccination experiments on specific pathogen ...

Passive protection afforded by maternally-derived antibodies in chickens and the antibodies' interference with the protection elicited by avian influenza-inactivated vaccines in progeny.

chicks, providing some protection and/or interference with vaccination. The aim of this study was to evaluate the level of protection afforded by MDA against challenge with highly pathogenic avian influenza ...
