Mycobacteria causing human cervical lymphadenitis in pastoral communities in the Karamoja region of Uganda
TLDR
The isolation of M. bovis confirms the human infection with zoonotic mycobacteria in areas where consumption of raw milk and meat is routine and also confirms their increasing role in human disease and the occupational risk of infection in the transhumant ecosystem in the absence of safe drinking water and environmental contamination.

Lymphocyte subpopulations and neutrophil function in calves during the first 6 months of life.
TLDR
The present study shows that the T-cell subpopulations are present in peripheral blood of calves at levels comparable with adult values, while the B-cell population increases significantly with age, and indicates that the neutrophilic granulocytes are functional and able to mount an effective response in young calves from the first week of life. Expand
Hematologic values in calves during the first 6 months of life.
TLDR
Age-specific reference intervals for calves from birth to 6 month of age are needed for RBC count, MCV, MCHC, red cell distribution width, and platelet and lymphocyte counts. Expand
Seroprevalence of brucellosis and its associated risk factors in cattle from smallholder dairy farms in Zimbabwe
TLDR
The implementation of stamping out policy, bleeding and testing animals before movement and promoting the use self-contained units are likely to significantly reduce the public health risks associated with Brucella infections in cattle. Expand
Herd-level factors for Brucella seropositivity in cattle reared in smallholder dairy farms of Zimbabwe.
TLDR
Investigation in smallholder dairy cattle herds from Gokwe, Marirangwe, Mushagashe, Nharira, Rusitu and Wedza areas of Zimbabwe found keeping mixed breed herds, stocking density and herd size as independently associated with increased counts of seropositive cattle in a herd. Expand
Characterisation of isolates of Staphylococcus aureus from acute, chronic and subclinical mastitis in cows in Norway
TLDR
It appears that the majority of S. aureus isolates recovered from cases of bovine mastitis in Norway are genetically closely related and express common phenotypical characteristics. Expand
Characterisation of mycobacteria isolated from slaughter cattle in pastoral regions of Uganda
TLDR
Isolation of environmental mycobacteria could explain the high avian or non specific tuberculin reactor patterns commonly observed in pastoral cattle and suggests their pathogenic or opportunistic role in the infection of cattle with disseminated bovine tuberculous lesions. Expand
Repeatability of flow cytometric and classical measurement of phagocytosis and respiratory burst in bovine polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
TLDR
Five methods for measurement of phagocytosis and respiratory burst activity of bovine blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes were evaluated and showed that the Phagotest, Bursttest, cytochrome c and iodination assays gave repeatable results when samples were run in the same setup on the same day. Expand
Pathogenic Escherichia coli found in food.
TLDR
Strains causing non-enteric disease are less known as being transmitted to humans with food as a vector, but the importance of some of these diseases, should implicate further research on what role food plays in spreading these organisms. Expand
Rapid isolation of K88+ Escherichia coli by using immunomagnetic particles
TLDR
The MAb-K88 IMP test is promising as a rapid method for isolation and identification of K88+ E. coli from a mixed culture. Expand
