Twelve calves from over veal calf farm were divided into two groups: group I-6 calves which developed typical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia and group II-6 calves with no symptoms of the disease. Both groups of calves were compared with respect to changes in several hematological parameters. Some functions of peripheral blood leukocytes as random(More)
The aim of this paper was to compare the effect of flumethasone and meloxicam in combination with oxytetracycline on clinical and immunological parameters of calves suffering from enzootic bronchopneumonia. The study was performed on 30 Black-and-White Lowland Breed calves with clinical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia divided randomly into three equal(More)
The study was performed on 18 Black-and-White Lowland Breed calves with clinical signs of enzootic bronchopneumonia divided into three groups and respectively treated with oxytetracycline and meloxicam--Group I (9 animals); oxytetracycline and flunixin meglumine--Group II (3 animals); and oxytetracycline only--Group III (6 animals--control). The following(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate changes in selected parameters of cellular immune response in the conditions of endotoxin fever and pyrogenic tolerance in pigeons. On the first day of observation the experimental birds (n = 18) were intravenously injected with Escherichia coli LPS at a dose of 10 microg/kg b.w., while the control animals (n = 6)(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of Uncaria tomentosa (Vilcacora) on the routine haematological parameters and phenotype of peripheral blood leukocytes and their phagocytic activity in calves. The study was performed on 20 calves, divided into two equal groups. The calves from group I were treated orally with 4200 mg/calf/d of Uncaria(More)
Mycoplasma bovis and Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies mycoides small colony (MmmSC) are causes of bovine mycoplasmosis and contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP), respectively, and are responsible for serious economic losses in cattle around the world. CBPP was last reported in Poland in 1939 but bovine mycoplasmosis is believed to be endemic. A survey of(More)
We examined the effect of a single intravenous dose of flumetasone (SAID) and meloxicam (NSAID) treatment of calves with experimentally-induced localized lung inflammation on immunological and hematological variables such as total protein, gamma globulin, hemoglobin (Hb) concentrations, alkaline phosphatase activity, packed red cell volume (PCV), red blood(More)
A serological study of twenty three European bison (Bison bonasus) derived from Northern-East Poland for the seroprevalence of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis, Mycoplasma bovis, Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC, Mycoplasma agalactiae and Mycoplasma capricolum subsp. capripneumoniae was conducted. Only specific antibodies to M. bovis were(More)
Previous research has shown that decisions about odd numbers take longer than decision about even numbers (the "odd effect"). It has also been shown that females are better at processing linguistic stimuli and males are better at processing spatial stimuli. In the present experiment, male and female subjects made odd versus even classification judgments on(More)
The effect of vaccinating pregnant cows with an inactivated vaccine against Mannheimia haemolytica, BRSV and PI3V infections on selected immune responses in their offspring was examined. Blood samples were collected weekly for 12 weeks from six newborn calves from each of vaccinated (experimental) and unvaccinated (control) dams. Specific antibodies to M.(More)
