Epizootic Rabbit Enteropathy: experimental transmission and clinical characterization.
In late 1996 in France, a severe digestive disease appeared in fattening domestic rabbits. Named the Epizootic Rabbit Enteropathy (ERE), this digestive syndrome has become the main cause of mortalityExpand

Relationships between microflora and caecal fermentation in rabbits before and after weaning.
Some microbiological and biochemical parameters of caecal content were studied in 15- to 49-d-old rabbits that were slaughtered sequentially. The ammonia level did not differ before weaning (11.5Expand

Effects of Age and Dietary Fibre Level on Caecal Microbial Communities of Conventional and Specific Pathogen-Free Rabbits
Caecal community structure in conventional and specific pathogen-free (SPF) rabbits was assessed by performing dot-blot hybridization with 16S rRNA targeted oligonucleotide probes. The variation ofExpand

Infectious agents associated with epizootic rabbit enteropathy: Isolation and attempts to reproduce the syndrome
Abstract Epizootic rabbit enteropathy (ERE), a highly lethal (30–80% mortality) disease of broiler rabbits aged 6–14 weeks, first appeared in 1997 in French intensive enclosed rabbitries and isExpand

Development of molecular assays for the identification of the 11 Eimeria species of the domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus).
Coccidiosis are the major parasitic diseases in poultry and other domestic animals including the domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus). Eleven distinct Eimeria species have been identified in thisExpand

Eimeria magna: pathogenicity, immunogenicity and selection of a precocious line.
A precocious line (PrEmag) of Eimeria magna in rabbits was obtained by selecting for early development of oocysts. The prepatent period was shortened by 46 h. The pathogenicity of PrEmag wasExpand

Endogenous development of Eimeria intestinalis in rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus).
The endogenous life cycle of a pure strain of Eimeria intestinalis was studied by light and electron microscopy in coccidia-free rabbits. Four schizont generations could be observed: the first one,Expand

Effect of a high fibre intake on the resistance of the growing rabbit to an experimental inoculation with an enteropathogenic strain of Escherichia coli
Response to an experimental infection with an enteropathogenic E. coli O103 strain (EPEC) was assessed in growing rabbits given a high or a low dietary fibre diet (200 and 120 g acid-detergent fibreExpand
