Development of tools to improve the detection of Trypanosoma evansi in Australia
- C. Smuts
There was no specific pattern in serum cytokines or serum biochemistry that could be used to distinguish infected from uninfected animals, or different stages of disease, and attempts were made to determine key cytokine and biochemical patterns that would distinguishinfected from unin infected animals and acute from chronic infections.

Transudate or exudate: can lactate dehydrogenase activity in canine and feline effusions help to differentiate between the 2?
The LDH activity was increased in all effusions collected from animals after death, potentially invalidating its use postmortem and Measurement ofLDH activity may be useful in helping to differentiate between transudates and exudates in cats and dogs. Expand
Lactate Dehydrogenase Activity in Abdominal Fluid From Horses With Colic
LDH activity in abdominal fluid may be a useful prognostic test in horses with colic, but the test method for LDH measurement must be known and remain constant for meaningful interpretation. Expand
Comparison of a qualitative canine C-reactive protein test to a quantitative test and traditional markers of inflammation - Short communication.
The qualitative CRP FASTest was found to be a sensitive test for detecting increased CRP concentration and was positive more frequently than were traditional markers of inflammation. Expand
Rarely used methods for investigating portosystemic shunts in dogs
Background: In dogs with portosystemic shunting (PSS) or chronic liver disease metabolic functions of the liver are disrupted, resulting in increased concentrations of ammonia, amino acids and uric… Expand
LHD in body cavity fluids: Is it diagnostically useful?
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), an enzyme of the anaerobic glycolytic pathway with several isoforms, is found intracellularly in most tissues. Increased LDH is frequently used in human medicine to… Expand
Laboratory methods for evaluating canine portosystemic shunts
In dogs with reduced liver function (portosystemic shunting, parenchymal liver disease), metabolic functions of the liver are disrupted, resulting in increased concentrations of ammonia, amino acids… Expand
Evaluation of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity in body cavity effusions from dogs, cats and horses
- C. Smuts
Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity is often measured in human effusions to help in differentiating between transudates and exudates. Few studies have been performed using samples of effusions from… Expand
Platforms to differentiate exotic pathovars of plant bacteria
This project used proteomics and metabolomics, platforms that identify functional molecules potentially associated with plant - pathogen interactions, to identify biomarkers that differentiate pathovars in species of Xanthomonas, and confirmed the viability of these approaches as platforms to discover novel diagnostic targets.

Evaluation of novel platforms to differentiate pathovars of plant pathogenic bacteria
Proteomics and metabolomics are evaluated, platforms that identify functional molecules potentially associated with plant‐pathogen interactions, to identify biomarkers that differentiate pathovars in Xanthomonas species. Expand
