TLDR
Data suggests that knowledge of viral loads could be useful for the management of elephants before or during clinical illness, and sequential infection with both EEHV1 subtypes occurs in Asian elephants, suggesting that they do not elicit cross-protective sterilizing immunity. Expand
Solitarial premotor neuron projections to the rat esophagus and pharynx: implications for control of swallowing.
TLDR
The synaptic link between buccopharyngeal and esophageal premotor neurons provides an anatomic pathway for the central initiation of esophagal peristalsis and its coordination with the pharyngeAL phase of swallowing. Expand
Transsynaptic localization of pharyngeal premotor neurons in rat
We determined the anatomy and connectivity of the brainstem circuit controlling the buccopharyngeal phase of swallowing, using pseudorabies virus to identify linked circuits of neurons. PharyngealExpand
Localization of nitric oxide synthase in the brain stem neural circuit controlling esophageal peristalsis in rats.
TLDR
NADPH staining in both somata and terminals of esophageal premotor neurons suggests that NO is involved in neurotransmission in the central subnucleus and at the site of synaptic contact between esophagal prem motor neurons and motoneurons in the compact formation of the nucleus ambiguus. Expand
Expression and localization of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator mRNA and its protein in rat brain.
TLDR
The presence of CFTR in neurons localized to these regions of brain controlling homeostasis and energy expenditure may elucidate the pathogenesis of other nonpulmonary and gastrointestinal manifestations which commonly are observed in children with cystic fibrosis. Expand
Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator protein expression in brain.
TLDR
Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator protein expression in neurons and coated vesicles suggests a possible effect on neuropeptide vesicle trafficking by mutant CFTR. Expand
Electrocardiography of the Asian Elephant (Elephas maximus)
TLDR
With increasing age, there was a trend toward a slower heart rate and significantly longer P waves, and clinicians must be aware of how age and body weight may affect the ECG. Expand
Immune responses of Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) to commercial tetanus toxoid vaccine.
TLDR
The great majority of elephants had titers prior to booster vaccination, and following revaccination all elephants demonstrated anamnestic increases in titers, indicating that this species does respond to tetanus vaccination. Expand
Reference intervals for acute phase protein and serum protein electrophoresis values in captive Asian elephants (Elephas maximus)
TLDR
Serum samples from 35 clinically healthy Asian elephants were analyzed using automated assays for C-reactive protein, serum amyloid A, and haptoglobin and SPEP to establish reference intervals for each protein fraction. Expand

TLDR
A 6-year-old castrated dromedary camel presented with a non-healing, severely pruritic, ulcerative fibrotic plaque located at the medial canthus and a diagnosis of cutaneous habronemiasis was made. Expand
