Prevalence of Campylobacter spp. in a cross-sectional study of dogs attending veterinary practices in the UK and risk indicators associated with shedding.
Campylobacteriosis is a major cause of gastroenteritis in humans and some studies have suggested that dog ownership is a risk factor for the condition. To determine the prevalence, speciesExpand

Identification and sequence determination of the capsid protein gene of feline calicivirus
SummaryWe have determined 4380 bases of the sequence from a cDNA clone containing the 3′ end of feline calicivirus strain F9. We find four candidate open reading frames of which three are completeExpand
