Gut Ischemia, Oxidative Stress, and Bacterial Translocation in Elevated Abdominal Pressure in Rats
It is concluded that elevated intraabdominal pressure in the rat leads to intestinal ischemia, oxygen free radical production, and bacterial translocation.
The effect of organic acids on the control of porcine post-weaning diarrhoea.
Organic acids and especially lactic acid are a useful tool in controlling PWDS and had reduced incidence and severity of diarrhoea, and performed significantly better than the negative control group (P<0.05).
The effect of probiotic LSP 122 on the control of post-weaning diarrhoea syndrome of piglets.
It was concluded that the high dosage schedule of LSP 122, providing 10(7)viable spores of B. licheniformis per g of feed, is a very useful agent for the control of PWDS due to ETEC.
PCR detection and prevalence of alpha-, beta-, beta 2-, epsilon-, iota- and enterotoxin genes in Clostridium perfringens isolated from lambs with clostridial dysentery.
Clostridium perfringens isolated from lambs with dysentery were analysed by a DNA amplification technique, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), to determine the prevalence of the alpha-, beta-, beta 2-, epsilon-, iota- and enterotoxin genes, revealing the epidemiological use of PCR toxin gene typing of C. perfringen.
The effect of organic acids on the control of post-weaning oedema disease of piglets.
Both organic acids and medication with 50 p.p.m. of ENR for a 10-day period are useful in controlling and/or preventing post-weaning oedema disease.
[Natural and experimental infection of rodents (Rattus norvegicus) with Salmonella gallinarum].
Thirty five (35) rats (Rattus norvegicus) were trapped in the area of four egg producing poultry farms and were examined for Salmonella spp., micro-biologically. The samples were taken from liver,
Study of microbiological and molecular typing aspects of paratuberculosis in sheep and goats in Northern Greece.
Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis, an acid-fast bacterium is the agent of Johne's disease, an intestinal disease that causes poor nutrient intake in ruminants. During the period 1987-2003,
[Salmonella infection sources in poultry flocks in northern Greece].
From the present study, it seems that rats, chicken and eggs are important for the salmonella dissemination.
