Prevention and control of bovine respiratory disease.
The cattle health industry should continue to identify means of BRD control though the development and use of new technologies with the aim of enhancing resistance, reducing risk factors and decreasing pathogen exposure.
Detection of Antibiotic Resistance and Classical Enterotoxin Genes in Coagulase -negative Staphylococci Isolated from Poultry in Poland
Testing for the presence of the five classical enterotoxin genes showed that CNS strains, as in the case of S. aureus strains, can be a source of food intoxications.
Evaluation of plasma cortisol and TBARS levels in calves after short - term transportation
SUMMARY In the present study calves were subjected to stressful conditions that occure during short - term transportation. In order to describe the influence of transport stress to lipid peroxidation
Tumour necrosis factor-alpha and interleukin-6 concentration in the serum of sows with the MMA syndrome
The results indicate that TNFα and IL-6 are involved in the pathogenesis of the MMA syndrome and that their determinations are useful for early diagnosis and monitoring of the disease.
Bacteriophage therapy to combat bacterial infections in poultry
The progressive increase in the number of multi-drug resistant bacteria and the complete ban on the use of antibiotics in livestock feed in the EU, as well as the partial ban in the US, have led to the growth of research on theUse of bacteriophages to combat bacterial infections in humans and animals.
Assessment of antibiotic susceptibility in Lactobacillus isolates from chickens
The findings indicate that intestinal lactobacilli should be considered a reservoir of resistance genes and that antibiotics must be used prudently in poultry production.
16S-ARDRA and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry as tools for identification of Lactobacillus bacteria isolated from poultry
The MALDI-TOF MS and 16S-ARDRA assays are valuable tools for the identification of avian lactobacilli to the species level and can be used for discrimination of Lactobacillus bacteria from different habitats.
Characterization of heat-shock proteins in Escherichia coli strains under thermal stress in vitro.
The presence of very strong protective adaptation in the bacteria in unfavourable conditions, which is critical for the organism infected by them, is indicated by the localization of Hsps in cell fractions.
