Fatal infection in three Grey Slender Lorises (Loris lydekkerianus nordicus) caused by clonally related Trueperella pyogenes
The results suggest that the same isolate contaminated the animal’s facility and subsequently caused cross infection between the three different Grey Slender Loris cases, the first epidemiological approach concentrating on T. pyogenes using MLSA.
Phenotypical and Genotypical Properties of an Arcanobacterium pluranimalium Strain Isolated from a Juvenile Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis reticulata)
To the authors' knowledge, the present study is the first phenotypic and genotypic characterization of an A. pluranimalium strain isolated from a giraffe, and the species identity could be confirmed by phenotypical investigations and MALDI-TOF MS analysis.
Trueperella pyogenes as cause of a facial abscess in a grey slender loris (Loris lydekkerianus nordicus)--a case report.
A Trueperella (T.) pyogenes strain isolated from an abscess on the left side of the face of a six year old grey slender loris could successfully be identified phenotypically, by MALDI-TOF MS analysis and genotypically using T.pyogenes 16S-23S rDNA intergenic spacer region specific oligonucleotide primers.

A pleomorphic Gram-negative, motile coccobacillus was isolated from the gills of a wild-caught bluespotted ribbontail ray after its sudden death during quarantine, marking the first report of a natural Brucella infection in a saltwater fish extending the host range of this medically important genus.
Isolation of canine Anaplasma phagocytophilum strains from clinical blood samples using the Ixodes ricinus cell line IRE/CTVM20
Outbreak with clonally related isolates of Corynebacterium ulcerans in a group of water rats
The results indicate that water rats represent a suitable new host species that is prone to infection and must be regarded as a reservoir for potentially zoonotic Corynebacterium ulcerans.
Expanding the host range: infection of a reptilian host (Furcifer pardalis) by an atypical Brucella strain
Evidence is provided that reptiles as the remaining poikilothermic vertebrate class also represent susceptible hosts for atypical Brucella, indicating potential zoonotic agents for these strains.
Pterygodermatites nycticebi infections in golden lion tamarins (Leontopithecus rosalia rosalia) and aye-ayes (Daubentonia madagascariensis) from a German zoo.
Continuous cockroach control strategies and regular treatments of primates are currently performed to prevent further P. nycticebi infections in prosimian primates' cockroach-eating habits.

Jellies are typically considered difficult organisms to raise in the lab by many scientists. This is due to their requirements for constant water current and the absence of corners. In the wild,…
