To investigate the degree of genetic variability of bovine leukemia virus (BLV) strains circulating in Croatia, 29 isolates from the six largest dairy farms were examined by PCR for a segment of the gp51 env gene, followed by DNA sequencing and phylogenetic analysis. The nucleotide sequences were compared with other previously characterized BLV strains from(More)
At the end of the last century, human trichinellosis was an important public health problem in the eastern parts of Croatia. Moreover, the majority of clinically infected people were registered in Vukovar-Srijem County (up to 60% of all human cases registered in Croatia). Also, 95% of all Trichinella positive swine carcasses originated from Vukovar-Srijem(More)
The aim of this study was to perform a diagnosis and molecular characterisation of bovine leukosis virus (BLV) on a Croatian dairy farm. For that purpose we compared the diagnostic tools used in our study, made sequence and phylogenetic analysis of our BLV and tried to describe the diffi culties in the process of EBL eradication on the examined farm after(More)
