OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy of orally administered tylosin phosphate for prevention and treatment proliferative enteropathy (PE) in pigs. ANIMALS Crossbred pigs weaned at 24 days of age. PROCEDURE Pigs were challenge exposed with an inoculum of Lawsonia intracellularis strain LR189/5/83. Seven control pigs received buffer solution. Of 33(More)
Twelve intestinal spirochete strains of porcine origin were characterized on the basis of their phenotypic properties, by multilocus enzyme electrophoresis, and by pathogenicity testing in gnotobiotic pigs. The spirochetes used included two strains of Serpulina hyodysenteriae (B204 and P18A), two strains of Serpulina innocens (B256 and 4/71), one strain(More)
In a survey of chicken coccidia in France during 1994, samples of litter were collected from 41 farms. On 31 of these farms, eimerian oocysts were abundant enough to allow monitoring of their numbers in the litter. Peak total oocyst counts on these farms ranged from 16,200 to 1,254,000/g of litter, but no coccidiosis was observed. The chickens reared(More)
Faeces samples from calves with diarrhoea in 45 outbreaks were examined for six enteropathogens. Rotavirus and coronavirus were detected by ELISA in 208 (42 per cent) and 69 (14 per cent) of 490 calves respectively; calici-like viruses were detected by electron microscopy in 14 of 132 calves (11 per cent). Cryptosporidium were detected in 106 of 465 (23 per(More)
Actinobacillus seminis was isolated from the semen of five rams on four farms. Four of the rams had abnormal semen and three were also infertile. The isolates of A seminis showed similar phenotypic profiles and electrophoretic protein patterns to the type strain of A seminis but were distinct from Histophilus ovis previously isolated from rams with(More)
The comparative intradermal skin test, in which a delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) response to purified protein derivative of tuberculin (PPD) from Mycobacterium bovis and M. avium is assessed and compared, may be used repeatedly on non-infected animals on farms where bovine tuberculosis (TB) has occurred. A skin test is known to affect subsequent skin(More)
A dysentery syndrome was recognized among the Institute's calves at 18 to 21 days of age. It was reproduced experimentally in gnotobiotic calves with an atypical Escherichia coli (S102-9) isolated from the affected calves. In both natural and experimental disease the calves passed copious bright red blood in the feces and developed diarrhea. Walls of the(More)
This paper reports a naturally occurring case of meningoencephalitis associated with Listeria innocua in a Polled-Dorset ewe. The ewe was one of a housed group of twenty-five, fed ad lib. on wrapped baled silage. L. innocua was isolated after one week from cold enrichment culture of brain and pituitary tissue. Its identity was confirmed by conventional(More)
