Genetic typing of classical swine fever virus.
TLDR
The expanding data-base of CSFV sequences should improve the prospects of disease tracing in the future, and provide a basis for a standardised approach to ensure that results from different laboratories are comparable. Expand
Detection of a novel porcine boca-like virus in the background of porcine circovirus type 2 induced postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome.
TLDR
This study explored the possible presence of other so far unknown DNA containing infectious agents in lymph nodes collected from Swedish pigs with confirmed PMWS through random amplification and high-throughput sequencing and proposed that this is a novel porcine parvovirus, with genetic relationship to bocaviruses. Expand
Phylogeny, classification and evolutionary insights into pestiviruses.
TLDR
A new proposal is presented for the classification of pestiviruses into nine species: BVDV-1, BVDv-2, BVP-3 (atypical bovine pestivirus), Pestivirus of giraffe, Tunisian sheep virus (TSV; previously termed "Tunisian isolates"), Antelope and Bungowannah. Expand
Feline infectious peritonitis. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
The clinical picture of FIP is highly variable, depending on the distribution of the vasculitis and pyogranulomatous lesions, and there are no controlled studies to prove any beneficial effect of corticosteroids. Expand
Studies of porcine circovirus type 2, porcine boca-like virus and torque teno virus indicate the presence of multiple viral infections in postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome pigs.
TLDR
A multiple viral infection in Swedish pigs with postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome might be due to synergistic effects of different viruses acting together, indicating the simultaneous presence of several viruses in this disease complex. Expand
Molecular characterization of ovine pestiviruses.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that sheep may naturally be infected not only with border disease virus (BDV), but also with bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) types I and II, and indicates the inadequacy of the current hostspecies-based nomenclature and classification of pestiviruses. Expand
Detection of a Novel Astrovirus in Brain Tissue of Mink Suffering from Shaking Mink Syndrome by Use of Viral Metagenomics
TLDR
This is one of the first descriptions of an astrovirus found in the central nervous system of animals and may be the etiological agent of the shaking mink syndrome, which was affected by a neurological disorder in Denmark in 2000. Expand
Natural infection of cattle with an atypical 'HoBi'-like pestivirus--implications for BVD control and for the safety of biological products.
TLDR
This study is the first to report a natural infection in cattle with a virus related to this atypical pestivirus that was first isolated from a batch of foetal calf serum collected in Brazil, and suggests that this group of pestiviruses may already be spread in cattle populations. Expand
Feline immunodeficiency. ABCD guidelines on prevention and management
TLDR
Cats infected with FIV may live as long as uninfected cats, with appropriate management, and asymptomatic FIV-infected cats should be neutered to avoid fighting and virus transmission. Expand
Studies of Genetic Relationships between Bovine, Caprine, Cervine, and Rangiferine Alphaherpesviruses and Improved Molecular Methods for Virus Detection and Identification
TLDR
A nested PCR combined with restriction enzyme analysis (REA) of the PCR products was developed for the simultaneous detection and identification of the viruses that were studied, showing a close relationship of all the studied viruses with suid herpesvirus 1. Expand
