The Mycoplasma mycoides cluster is made of six species that are closely related both genetically and phenotypically. Two are of particular importance, M. mycoides subsp. mycoides SC causing contagious bovine pleuropneumonia and M. capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae causing contagious caprine pleuropneumonia. The sequences of a putative membrane protein gene(More)
Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia is a serious threat to cattle not only in Africa but also in southern Europe and possibly Asia. It is now present in countries that had been free of the disease for many years, giving rise to doubts about the efficiency of the control strategies. In Africa CBPP is controlled mainly by a vaccination policy that uses variant(More)
A specific PCR test for the identification of the vaccine strains T1, T1/44 and T1sr, was developed. This PCR reaction is based on variations of DNA sequences in a region flanking one IS1296 copy. The specific primer pair MmmSCP1-T1M2 amplifies a 700-bp long DNA fragment in the T1 vaccine strains and gives no amplification with the 60 other Mycoplasma(More)
For the preparation of rabies vaccines, virus was grown in cultures of primary cells (bovine fetal kidney) or heteroploid cell lines (Hak and Vero). Comparative analysis of concentrated and/or purified antigen has shown a good correlation between the protective capacity (as determined by the NIH test for potency) on one hand, and hemagglutinating titer,(More)
Diseases of the periodontium continue to be one of the man's most wide spread afflictions. Periodontitis is one of such which is characterised by a periodontal pocket formed due to the inflammatory disease of gingiva and the deeper periodontal tissues. Local controlled release implants of povidone iodine was prepared using various polymers and stability,(More)
The seeds of Anthurium andreanum bicolour var agnihotri were made to germinate in Murashige and Skoog medium. A single good plantlet developed was further taken as explants and cultured in Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 2 mg/L of 6-Benzylaminopurine and 0.5 mg/L of naphthaleneacetic acid hormone concentrations. After 30 days the plantlets were(More)
