Multiplex PCRs for Identification of Escherichia coliVirulence Genes
PCRs were developed to detect 11 Escherichia colivirulence genes and successfully identified genes in E. coli from the feces of four dogs. Expand
Sensitivity and specificity of radioimmunoassay of serum trypsin-like immunoreactivity for the diagnosis of canine exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.
It was concluded that assay of serum TLI is a highly sensitive and specific test for the identification of dogs with EPI. Expand
Relative IgA deficiency and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in German shepherd dogs.
Comparable findings in German shepherd dogs with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth provided indirect evidence that local immunity might be defective in this breed, since these luminal bacteria would be expected to stimulate mucosal IgA production. Expand
Isolation and characterization of C-reactive protein from the dog.
Using calcium-dependent affinity chromatography on Sepharose-bearing, covalently-coupled pneumococcal C-polysaccharide, a protein was isolated from the serum of dogs that had undergone generalExpand
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth in dogs with chronic intestinal disease.
It is suggested that SIBO may be observed in dogs of many breeds, without an obvious primary cause, and that, although results of indirect tests may be suggestive of SIBO, bacterial culture of duodenal juice samples remains necessary for definitive diagnosis. Expand
A survey of the diagnosis and treatment of canine exocrine pancreatic insufficiency
Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency in German shepherd dogs was diagnosed by assay of low serum concentration of trypsin-like immunoreactivity, and the use of dietary manipulation and antibiotics were frequently reported to be useful adjunctive therapies. Expand
Sequential study of pancreatic structure and function during development of pancreatic acinar atrophy in a German shepherd dog.
Findings indicate that in German Shepherd Dogs, pancreatic acinar atrophy may involve interference with normal intracellular processing of zymogen granules, which precedes progressive and eventual rapid loss of exocrine pancreatic tissue. Expand
Relative deficiency of serum IgA in the german shepherd dog: a breed abnormality.
Findings suggest that production of IgA by gut associated lymphoid tissue may be abnormally low in the German shepherd dog. Expand
The prevalence of enteric pathogens in diarrhoeic Thoroughbred foals in Britain and Ireland
A survey of normal and diarrhoeic foals in Britain and Ireland from 1987 to 1989 revealed a significantly higher prevalence of Group A rotaviruses and Aeromonas hydrophila in diarrhoea, and diagnostic tests for rotavirus in the faeces showed electron microscopy and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (PAGE) to have similar sensitivity.
