Despite the fact that enteric redmouth disease (ERM) in farmed rainbow trout is one of the most devastating disease problems, little is known about the initial route of infection and pathogenicity of the aetiological agent, Yersinia ruckeri. In order to determine the initially infected organs, optical projection tomography (OPT), a novel three-dimensional(More)
The effect of oral vaccines against bacterial fish diseases has been a topic for debate for decades. Recently both M-like cells and dendritic cells have been discovered in the intestine of rainbow trout. It is therefore likely that antigens reaching the intestine can be taken up and thereby induce immunity in orally vaccinated fish. The objective of this(More)
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs exhibit differences in their ability to suppress polymorphonuclear leucocyte (PMN) functions in different species. The present study investigated the in-vitro and ex-vivo effects of phenylbutazone and flunixin on leukotriene-B4-directed migration of canine PMN. Furthermore, in-vitro comparison was made to indomethacin(More)
The present study investigated in vitro the qualitative and quantitative neutrophil function-activating properties of the most important non-cytokine participants in the acute inflammatory cell response. Apart from the results obtained with leukotriene (LT) D4, similar qualitative relationships were found for the several mediators tested regarding effects(More)
