The objective of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the occurrence of porcine parvovirus (PPV), Aujeszky’s disease virus (ADV), transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV), porcine respiratory coronavirus (PRCV), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and swine influenza virus (SIV) in selected wild boar populations in Germany (n(More)
Seroepidemiological evidence had suggested that pseudorabies (Aujeszky's disease) virus (PrV) infections occur in the European wild boar population in eastern Germany, although attempts to isolate the causative agent had failed. In 1995 and 1996, five virus isolates were recovered from latently infected wild boar originating from two regions where the(More)
The purpose of this paper is to define diagnostic procedures for wild boar after the completion of oral immunisation against classical swine fever (CSF). Epidemiological analysis of CSF in wild boar in Germany demonstrated that it is vital to carry out virological investigations on all animals found dead, sick or involved in traffic accidents. In principle,(More)
A new series of donor-bridge-acceptor (D-B-A) compounds consisting of π-conjugated oligofluorene (oFL) bridges between a ferrocene (Fc) electron-donor and a fullerene (C60 ) electron-acceptor have been synthesized. In addition to varying the length of the bridge (i.e., mono- and bi-fluorene derivatives), four different ways of linking ferrocene to the(More)
Using the Maedi-Visna virus strain WLC1 (Weybridge) and different cell lines of sheep plexus chorioideus we were able to establish and improve a production procedure of MV-antigen for use in immunodiffusion assay. Our attention was focused mainly on the efficient virus multiplication in cell cultures and on standardisation of the procedure to find a method(More)
