Highly Pathogenic H5N1 Influenza Viruses Carry Virulence Determinants beyond the Polybasic Hemagglutinin Cleavage Site
Highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses (HPAIV) originate from avirulent precursors but differ from all other influenza viruses by the presence of a polybasic cleavage site in their hemagglutininsExpand

Schmallenberg virus challenge models in cattle: infectious serum or culture-grown virus?
Schmallenberg virus (SBV), discovered in Europe in 2011, causes mild transient disease in adult ruminants, but fetal infection can lead to severe malformation in cattle, sheep and goats.To elucidateExpand

Anatomical and histologic pathology induced by cervical dislocation following blunt head trauma for on-farm euthanasia of poultry
Abstract The selection of an optimal method for on-farm euthanasia of poultry in cases of emergency killing is still under debate. The preferred approach would spare pain and suffering and wouldExpand
