Examination of the role of Mycoplasma bovis in bovine pneumonia and a mathematical model for its evaluation.
The authors screened 34 large cattle herds for the presence of Mycoplasma bovis infection by examining slaughtered cattle for macroscopic lung lesions, by culturing M. bovis from lung lesions and at
Mycoplasmoses in poultry.
TLDR
The eradication of mycoplasma infection can be achieved through improvements in hygiene and management practices, therapeutic treatment of breeder layers and/or of hatching eggs and better monitoring procedures.
Use of valnemulin in the control of Mycoplasma bovis infection under field conditions
TLDR
The calves medicated with valnemulin gained weight more quickly, had fewer cases of Mycoplasma infection and fewer respiratory signs, and required fewer treatments with antibiotics than those in the placebo group.
Mycoplasma gallisepticum Invades Chicken Erythrocytes during Infection
TLDR
Surprisingly, M. gallisepticum Rlow was detected in the bloodstream of infected chickens by nested PCR, as well as by differential immunofluorescence and interference contrast microscopy that showed that mycoplasmas were not only on the surface but also inside chicken erythrocytes.
Evaluation of two commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kits for the detection of Mycoplasma gallisepticum antibodies.
Sensitivity and specificity of two commercial Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits, rapid slide agglutination (SA) and haemagglutination inhibition (HI) tests
Mycoplasmal arthritis and meningitis in calves.
TLDR
A disease entity slightly different from, and appearing at an earlier age than, the syndrome known as mycoplasmal pneumo-arthritis was diagnosed in sucking calves, which caused huge economic losses due to a substantial reduction of the calf crop on the farm involved.
Role of the GapA and CrmA Cytadhesins of Mycoplasma gallisepticum in Promoting Virulence and Host Colonization
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the major role played by the GapA and CrmA proteins in M. gallisepticum host colonization and virulence in chickens infected via aerosol with hemadsorption-negative mutants.
Concept and application of a computational vaccinology workflow
TLDR
A computational workflow for implementing computational vaccinology covering aspects from vaccine target identification to functional characterization and epitope selection supported by a Systems Biology assessment of central aspects in host-pathogen interaction is presented.
