A Novel Virus Detected in Papillomas and Carcinomas of the Endangered Western Barred Bandicoot (Perameles bougainville) Exhibits Genomic Features of both the Papillomaviridae and Polyomaviridae
TLDR
A novel virus is detected in lesional tissue from affected western barred bandicoots using multiply primed rolling-circle amplification and PCR with the cutaneotropic papillomavirus primer pairs FAP59/FAP64 and AR-L1F8/AR-L 1R9, and this virus may represent the first member of a novel virus family descended from a common ancestor of the papillsomaviruses and polyomviruses recognized today.
Ventricular and Extraventricular Ependymal Tumors in 18 Cats
TLDR
Clinical signs and pathologic features of ventricular and extraventricular ependymomas and subependymomas in 18 domestic cats examined between 1978 and 2011 included altered mentation or behavior, seizures, circling, propulsive gait, generalized discomfort, and loss of condition.
A NEW EIMERIA SPECIES PARASITIC IN WESTERN BARRED BANDICOOTS, PERAMELES BOUGAINVILLE (MARSUPIALIA: PERAMELIDAE), IN WESTERN AUSTRALIA
TLDR
This is the first formal description of an Eimeria species parasitic in the order Peramelemorphia, and sporocysts from western barred bandicoots examined during routine monitoring of captive breeding colonies and wild populations were frequently found to contain oocysts.
Morbillivirus-associated unusual mortality event in South Australian bottlenose dolphins is largest reported for the Southern Hemisphere
TLDR
It is concluded that the cause for the UME was multifactorial and that CeMV was a major contributor, and the pathology included interstitial pneumonia, lymphoid depletion and syncytia.
Symmetry: the key to diagnosing propeller strike injuries in sea mammals
TLDR
Death was, therefore, due to multiple incised/chop wounds typical of boat propeller injuries with subsequent exsanguination, and the final injury consisted of amputation of the tail.
CCL2-driven inflammation increases mammary gland stromal density and cancer susceptibility in a transgenic mouse model
TLDR
Overexpression of CCL2 in the mammary epithelium resulted in an increased number of macrophages, increased density of stroma and collagen and elevated mRNA encoding matrix remodelling enzymes lysyl oxidase (LOX) and tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases (TIMP).
Plasma biochemistry and urinalysis variables of koalas (Phascolarctos cinereus) with and without oxalate nephrosis.
TLDR
Kalas with oxalate nephrosis from the Mount Lofty Ranges had renal insufficiency, hyperoxaluria, and pathognomonic urinary crystals, which will aid veterinary diagnosis of this disease.
Genetic diversity in the plasticity zone and the presence of the chlamydial plasmid differentiates Chlamydia pecorum strains from pigs, sheep, cattle, and koalas
TLDR
This study sequenced the genome of three C. pecorum isolates from pigs with differing pathologies and identified a third copy of the chlamydial cytotoxin gene, found only in porcine C.Pecorum strains, which provides further insight into the complexity of C.pecorum epidemiology and novel genomic regions that may be linked to host specificity.
Cutaneous Papillomatosis and Carcinomatosis in the Western Barred Bandicoot (Perameles bougainville)
TLDR
The gross, histopathologic, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical findings of a papillom atosis and carcinomatosis syndrome recently identified in the Western barred bandicoot are described.
Fatal aortic oesophageal fistula following oesophageal foreign body removal in a dog.
TLDR
An eight-month-old male Pomeranian was presented with hypovolaemic shock 7 days after successful oesophageal foreign body removal and died, and a 2-mm aortic oesphageal fistula was identified on the ventral aspect of the aorta at the level of heart base that communicated with the overlying Oesophagus.
