Quinolinic acid concentrations are increased in cerebrospinal fluid of Rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) naturally infected with simian retrovirus type-D.
TLDR
The symptoms of SAIDS closely resemble the clinical features of patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) which is caused by infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Characterization of a Pasteurella multocida (serotype B) bovine pneumonic pasteurellosis model and the effect of antimicrobials during peracute infection.
TLDR
This disease model offers potential for use in pharmacokinetic and target tissue drug concentration studies and for dosage titration of drugs intended for treatment of bacterial pneumonias.
Development of a chemotherapeutic model for microfilaricidal drugs to Dirofilaria immitis.
TLDR
It was shown that after residing in the peripheral circulation the microfilariae were able to develop into infective larvae in mosquitoes; therefore, the system may be a reasonable model of the natural microfilaremic state.
Laboratory transmission of dog heartworm (Dirofilaria immitis) by three species of mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae) from eastern Maryland, USA.
TLDR
Three species of mosquitoes from eastern Maryland, USA, were tested for their ability to transmit Dirofilaria immitis (Leidy) from heartworm-positive dogs to recipient dogs with no prior exposure and all 3 test species were found to be capable of transmitting D. immitis to dogs.
Experimental infection of rosellas (Platycercus eximius) with velogenic viscerotropic Newcastle disease virus (VVNDV).
TLDR
The lung and trachea had the highest concentrations of virus in both the tissue suspensions and the swab suspensions, and there was no difference between the two inoculation groups in clinical signs.
