A laboratory cat died 12 days after intraperitoneal inoculation of a 1 ml suspension containing 1.5 x 10(6) blood mononuclear cells from a Florida panther (Felis concolor coryi). Gross, histologic and ultrastructural investigations revealed the cause of death to be infection by Cytauxzoon felis, a protozoal parasite known to cause a rapidly fatal disease(More)
Cytologic samples of popliteal lymph node, proximal femoral bone marrow, and the buffy coat fraction of blood were obtained from 56 dogs. The number of mast cells on 1 slide of each sample was determined by microscopic examination. Eleven of 46 slides of lymph node aspirate contained mast cells (range, 1 to 16; mean, 6.4; median, 5 mast cells/slide).(More)
Encephalitic listeriosis was diagnosed in 2 adult llamas. Both had a multifocal suppurative encephalitis with mixed lymphocytic and neutrophilic perivascular infiltrates. Listeria monocytogenes was cultured from the brain stem of 1 llama using cold enrichment techniques; the other llama was culture negative. Formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded sections of(More)
We hypothesized that xanthine oxidase plays a role in the postischemic reperfusion injury in the equine small intestine. Under anesthesia, four horses and two ponies underwent ischemic strangulating obstructions of segments of the proximal jejunum, mid-jejunum and ileum. Prior to vascular occlusion, and at 1 h and 2 h of ischemia, full-thickness intestinal(More)
A subchronic toxicity study was conducted to evaluate the potential toxicological effects associated with intestinal translocation of a special fine particle size (median particle size 6 microns) microcrystalline cellulose (MCC). Four groups of Sprague-Dawley rats (20/sex/group) received either 0 (control), 500, 2500 or 5000 mg/kg/day MCC (25% w/v in tap(More)
Clostridium spiroforme enterotoxin-mediated diarrhea can be a common cause of mortality among weanling age rabbits. Definitive diagnosis of this disorder requires detection of the causative enterotoxin. Using filtered cecal supernatant from necropsy specimens, antibodies to C. spiroforme and its products and Vero cells, a cytotoxicity assay was performed on(More)
The course of naturally acquired infection with feline immunodeficiency virus was monitored in a cat over an 18-month period after diagnosis. The cat was admitted with diarrhea, poor body condition, a bite wound abscess, gingivitis, chronic fever, and splenomegaly. The cat's condition improved after splenectomy and remained stable for approximately 15(More)
The objective of this study was to determine the frequency of complaints in patients wearing removable partial dentures reporting at Armed Forces Institute of Dentistry Pakistan. The study included One hundred patients (60 males and 40 females) wearing removable partial dentures for at least 6 months. Details of age, gender, medical history and denture(More)
SCID mice inoculated with peripheral blood lymphocytes from a tumor-bearing BLV-positive cow developed lymphosarcomas after 6 months. DNA from the splenic tumor specifically hybridized with a bovine Sstl satellite probe, showing that these tumor cells were of bovine origin. The clonality of the SCID splenic tumor, as measured by the integration pattern of(More)
