OBJECTIVES To investigate the diagnostic value of electroencephalography (EEG) in dogs with epilepsy, applying human criteria for EEG abnormalities observed with this disorder. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty-six dogs with a clinically established diagnosis of epilepsy were investigated with electroencephalography (EEG) in order to evaluate the diagnostic(More)
The human definitions of epilepsy and seizure classification were applied rigidly to epileptic dogs to investigate whether the distribution of the seizure types and epilepsies of dogs is comparable to that of human beings. Sixty-three dogs were referred because of recurrent (> 2) epileptic seizures. Only dogs without previous or ongoing antiepileptic(More)
It was shown that of four syngeneic, murine tumors investigated, only those that evoked the generation of a state of concomitant anti-tumor immunity were susceptible to endotoxin-induced regression. Moreover, the temporal relationship between the generation of concomitant immunity and the onset of susceptibility to endotoxin-induced regression points to the(More)
The results of this paper are consistent with the hypothesis that progressive growth of the Meth A fibrosarcoma evokes the generation of a T-cell-mediated mechanism of immunosuppression that prevents this highly immunogenic tumor from being rejected by its immunocompetent host. It was shown that it is possible to cause the regression of large, established(More)
It was shown that although intravenous administration of bacterial endotoxin caused extensive hemorrhagic necrosis of four different syngeneic murine tumors, only two of these tumors subsequently underwent complete regression: the two that were shown to be immunogeneic as classically defined. An immunologic basis for endotoxin-induced regression was further(More)
Dogs with spontaneous occurring epilepsy with partial seizures express symptomatology resembling what is found in humans with partial epileptic seizures. Questionnaires on clinical signs from 70 dogs, with a confirmed diagnosis of epilepsy with partial seizures with or without secondary generalization, were reviewed in order to characterize and classify(More)
BACKGROUND Translation of experimental stroke research into the clinical setting is often unsuccessful. Novel approaches are therefore desirable. As humans, pet dogs suffer from spontaneous ischaemic stroke and may hence offer new ways of studying genuine stroke injury mechanisms. AIMS The objective of this study was to compare clinical symptoms and(More)
A nine-year-old, neutered female beagle was presented with a history of progressive myoclonic jerks. Clinical signs included mental depression and paroxysmal jerks of the head and forelimbs, apparently elicited by changes in light, noise or movements. Electroencephalographic findings were in accordance with myoclonus epilepsy. Postmortem histopathological(More)
BACKGROUND The Belgian shepherd Groenendael and Tervueren is believed to be at higher risk of developing epilepsy than dogs of the common population. This epidemiological study was designed to estimate the prevalence of epilepsy in the Danish population of Groenendael and Tervueren born between 1995 and 2004. Furthermore, it was the intention to describe(More)
The first cases of early-onset progressive polyneuropathy appeared in the Alaskan Malamute population in Norway in the late 1970s. Affected dogs were of both sexes and were ambulatory paraparetic, progressing to non-ambulatory tetraparesis. On neurologic examination, affected dogs displayed predominantly laryngeal paresis, decreased postural reactions,(More)
