For 80 years the infectivity of salmonid whirling disease has eluded discovery. New findings now show that this myxosporean disease of fish is initiated by what is regarded as an actinosporean produced in a tubificid oligochaete. Experimental results provide evidence that, instead of being considered as representatives of separate classes in the phylum(More)
A survey of the literature and of work being done in vertebrate cell culture shows that there are currently in existence and available to investigators some 61 cell lines representing 17 families and 36 species of fish. The literature of fish virology shows that at least 17 fish viruses have been isolated and that at least 15 others have been visualized by(More)
A new infectious, benign and chronic disease, histopathologically distinct from the viral disease lymphocystis, has been found in the bluegill. The symptoms are much enlarged cells in skin and gill epithelium, filled with basophilic granules. By electron microscopy these granules were shown to be organisms with the morphological characteristics ofBedsonia(More)
Egtved and infectious pancreatic necrosis (IPN) viruses were applied at high multiplicity alone and in combination to RTG-2 cells in liquid medium. Procedures were used which selectively suppressed one or the other virus, and the yields were determined after 64 hours at 15°C. The viruses showed an increase of 280 to 450 times the immediate post-adsorption(More)
Azithromycin, doxycycline, and rifampin, alone or in combination, were tested in vitro against Chlamydia pneumoniae AR-39. The combination of azithromycin plus rifampin showed the strongest activity and produced higher rates of eradication of C. pneumoniae from lung tissues than azithromycin alone in experimental mouse pneumonitis.
