Experimental infection of young specific pathogen-free cats with Bartonella henselae.
Eighteen 12-week-old specific pathogen-free cats, blood culture- and serum antibody-negative for Bartonella henselae, were randomly allocated to groups and were intravenously inoculated with 10(10) or with saline, developed histopathologic lesions that apparently resolved, and developed B and T lymphocyte responses to infection.

Epstein-Barr virus-associated gastric carcinomas: relation to H. pylori infection and genetic alterations.
Distinct clinicopathologic and genetic pathways exist in gastric LELCs, in which EBV may play a more important role than H. pylori infection, providing additional evidence of etiological and genetic heterogeneity for GC. Expand
DNA-mediated vaccination against infectious bursal disease in chickens.
The results indicate that the constructed plasmid pCR3.1-VP243-STC as a DNA vaccine provided efficacious protection for chickens against IBDV infection. Expand
Serovar distribution and antimicrobial susceptibility of swine Salmonella isolates from clinically ill pigs in diagnostic submissions from Indiana in the United States
Aims:  To determine serovar distribution and levels of antimicrobial susceptibility of Salmonella isolated from clinically ill pigs in diagnostic submissions.
Effect of ascorbic acid supplementation on the immune response of chickens vaccinated and challenged with infectious bursal disease virus.
Dietary supplementation of ascorbic acid may ameliorate the immunosuppression caused by IBDV vaccination and improve humoral and cellular immune responses. Expand
Fibronectin Attachment Protein Homologue Mediates Fibronectin Binding by Mycobacterium avium subsp.paratuberculosis
The results indicate that a FAP homologue mediates the attachment of FN to M. avium subsp. Expand
Effect of dietary antibacterial peptide and zinc-methionine on performance and serum biochemical parameters in piglets
The results indicated that antibacterial peptide and zinc methionine were effective in improving growth performance, enhancing immune function, blood vessel function and antioxidant enzyme activity of piglets. Expand
Existence of gene 5 indicates close genomic relationship of Turkey coronavirus to infectious bronchitis virus.
The results indicate the existence of gene 5 in the genome of TCV and a close relatedness of the TCV gene 5 to the IBV gene5 in location and nucleotide sequence. Expand
Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis Fibronectin Attachment Protein Facilitates M-Cell Targeting and Invasion through a Fibronectin Bridge with Host Integrins
Results indicate that targeting and invasion of M cells by M. paratuberculosis in vivo is mediated primarily by the formation of an FN bridge formed between FAP-P of M. avium subsp. Expand
Fibronectin Attachment Protein Is Necessary for Efficient Attachment and Invasion of Epithelial Cells by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis
Results indicate that the interaction between FN and FAP-P facilitates attachment and internalization of M. avium subsp. Expand
