Antibodies against rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus (RHDV) from 352 red fox (Vulpes vulpes) sera collected in Germany (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern) in 1993 were tested by a blocking enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test kit. Ninety samples with positive or suspected results also were analyzed by the hemagglutination inhibition test (HIT). Eighteen serum(More)
The influence of the hapten-protein ratio on the induction and kinetics of specific IgG1 and IgG2 anti-hapten and anti-carrier antibody synthesis, and the sensitivity of these reactions to cyclophosphamide (CY) and 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP), were studied following immunization with two different dinitrophenylated bovine gamma-globulin (DNP20-BGG and(More)
Serum activities and concentrations, respectively, of early pregnancy factor (EPF), early pregnancy associated protein (EPAP), beta-hCG, estradiol, progesterone and 17-hydroxyprogesterone were estimated in 20 healthy primigravidae within the tenth to twelfth completed gestational week before and after therapeutic abortion. EPF, beta-hCG and estradiol(More)
Ziel dieser Arbeit war es zu prüfen, ob eine hohe Schwermetallbelastung (Cd, Pb) und bei ausgewählten Individuen eine hohe Belastung mit Organohalogenverbindungen (PCB) eine Veränderung von ausgewählten Parametern des Gesundheitsstatus (Immunstatus, Virusexposition) bei freilebenden Rehen bedingt. Hierzu wurden extrem belastete Gebiete (Regionen im Raum(More)
Maternal bovine EPF activity can be reduced to one single polypeptide enriched and identified from serum of cows in early pregnancy. The relative molecular weight of this active polypeptide was estimated at 67 kDa. This bovine EPF was labelled by 125I and peroxidase. In parallel investigations of non-pregnant animals a 67-kDa polypeptide was additionally(More)
There were 151 serum samples of the zoological species of hoofed animals from the Bovidae, Cervidae and Equidae families examined for the presence of haptoglobin (Hp). In the majority of samples the Hp levels were close to the ones defined in the related species of domestic animals (86.49, 52.38 and 69.7% in particular families, respectively). In females(More)
On the Hrdĕjovice farm belonging to the Agricultural Co-operative Farm Dukla Hosín, district Ceské Budĕjovice, three groups of new-born calves housed in different ways were compared as to the occurrence of the Cryptosporidium coccidia, scours and as to the overall health condition. Cryptosporidium infections and scours were observed in all 19 calves,(More)
