Polymerization of fibrin in the presence of pulmonary surfactant was recently noted to induce incorporation of phospholipids into the insoluble clot material, thereby effecting severe loss of surface activity (W. Seeger, A. Elssner, A. Günther, H.-J. Krämer, and H. O. Kalinowski. Am. J. Respir. Cell Mol. Biol. 9: 213-220, 1993). In the present study, we(More)
The present study reports the possible vertical transmission of Babesia canis canis from an infected bitch to her puppies. The study concerns a bitch that had developed babesiosis in week seven of pregnancy and her litter, three puppies that exhibited symptoms of the disease in Weeks 8–9 post-partum. In all animals, the infection with protozoa was confirmed(More)
Zinc was determined by means of atomic absorption techniques in the hippocampal formation, the cerebellum, the whole brain, and their subcellular fractions during the postnatal development of rats. Large quantities of zinc were found already in newborn animals. In the whole brain, the zinc amounts increased between the birth and the 15th day of age, whereas(More)
Anaplasma phagocytophilum is an emerging pathogen of horses that is transmitted by Ixodid ticks. Recent studies suggest that multiple strains of A. phagocytophilum may be circulating in wild and domestic animal populations, and these strains may have differential host tropisms and pathogenicity. The organism infects and survives within neutrophils.(More)
The aim of this study was to use a rapid and easy DNA-based test, the loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), for diagnosis of Babesia canis canis infections in dogs. 10 DNA samples of 18S RNA-A and 10 DNA samples of 18S RNA-B of B. canis canis were used in the study. LAMP method could successfully detect DNA in all examined samples down to 0.1 pg(More)
The aim of this study was to perform molecular analysis of canine adenovirus 2 (CAV-2) E1B 19K gene fragment isolated from 20 dogs of various breeds (12 males and 8 females aged 1-9 years), with clinical symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, from the Lubelszczyzna region. Nasal swabs were taken from dogs. DNA of CAV-2 was detected using the PCR(More)
Intra-alveolar clot formation is a common finding in acute and chronic inflammatory lung diseases. Incorporation of lipophilic surfactant components into a growing fibrin clot has recently been reported (Am. J. Respir. Cell Mol. Biol. 1993; 9:213-220). In the present study, we investigated the influence of such surfactant incorporation on the elastic(More)
Trueperella pyogenes is an opportunistic pathogen causing purulent infections in pigs and other animal species. T. pyogenes infections in pigs are local and/or generalized depending on the immune status of the animals, their individual susceptibility and environmental factors. The occurrence of these infections on pig farms causes substantial economic(More)
Incorporation of surfactant into polymerizing fibrin causes loss of surface activity and marked retardation of clot lysis by plasmin (Günther and colleagues, Am. J. Physiol. 1994;267:L618-L624). We compared the efficacy of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA), urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA), activated anisoylated streptokinase-plasminogen(More)
