The emergence of classical BSE from atypical/Nor98 scrapie
(Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2019-12-16)
Atypical/Nor98 scrapie (AS) is a prion disease of small ruminants. Currently there are no efficient measures to control this form of prion disease, and, importantly, the zoonotic potential and the risk ...
Retrospective study on transmissible viral proventriculitis and chicken proventricular necrosis virus (CPNV) in the UK
(Avian Pathology, 2019-10-21)
Chicken proventricular necrosis virus (CPNV) is a recently described birnavirus, which has been proposed to be the cause of transmissible viral proventriculitis (TVP). The understanding of the epidemiology ...
Similar frequency of Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV‐3) detection in serum samples of pigs affected by digestive or respiratory disorders and age‐matched clinically healthy pigs
(Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, 2019-09-04)
Porcine circovirus 3 (PCV‐3) has been identified in pigs affected by different disease conditions, although its pathogenicity remains unclear. The objective of the present study was to assess the frequency ...
Myxoma virus jumps species to the Iberian hare
(Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, 2019-07-19)
The study of myxoma virus (MYXV) infections in the European rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) has produced one of the most accepted host–pathogen evolutionary models. To date, myxomatosis has been limited ...
Molecular detection of Treponema species organisms in foremilk and udder cleft skin of dairy cows with digital dermatitis
(Tropical Animal Health and Production, 2019-09-13)
Identification of reservoirs and transmission routes of digital dermatitis (DD)-associated Treponema spp. is considered an effective means for controlling DD infection in dairy cows. The objective of ...
Coinfection with Entamoeba polecki and Brachyspira hyodysenteriae in a pig with severe diarrhea
(Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, 2019-02-09)

Diagnostic accuracy of two DNA‐based molecular assays for detection of porcine circovirus 3 in swine population using Bayesian latent class analysis
(Letters in Applied Microbiology, 2019-09-28)
Molecular‐based tools sometimes are the only laboratory techniques available to detect a recently discovered agent, and their validation without the existence of previously described ‘gold standard’ ...
Fatal Photobacterium damselae-induced enteritis in a leatherback turtle Dermochelys coriacea
(Diseases of Aquatic Organisms, 2019-08-08)
Stranded leatherback turtle Dermochelys coriacea complete pathology reports are rare, and the cause of mortality is difficult to determine in many cases. We conducted a complete pathological study of a ...
