Pig fetuses inoculated at 45 days gestation with virulent porcine parvovirus (PPV) were harvested 10 days later. Virus was extracted, inactivated with binary ethylenimine and the antigen suspension emulsified with mineral oil adjuvant. One dose of this vaccine, or two doses with a 14 day interval, stimulated high and long lasting serum antibody titres in(More)
Virus localisation and lesions were studied in 14-one-week-old piglets following combined intranasal-oral inoculation with a British isolate of 'pneumotropic' porcine coronavirus (PCV) and were compared with the effects of transmissible gastroenteritis virus (TGEV) infection in five piglets. Unlike TGEV-infected piglets, all PCV-inoculated piglets remained(More)
Serum samples from pig herds in Great Britain have been examined for antibodies to influenza virus since 1968. Antibodies to H3N2 virus strains have been found since 1968 and the serological data presented here suggests that H3N2 virus strains continue to persist in the pig population. An outbreak of acute respiratory disease occurred in a 400-sow unit. The(More)
Porcine epidemic diarrhoea type II was reproduced in experimental pigs of various ages by oral dosing with minced intestine from a naturally occurring case of the disease. Virus-like particles which probably represent an unidentified coronavirus were seen by electron microscopy in the faeces and intestinal epithelium of infected animals.
The current generation of antidepressant drugs acts predominantly by targeting the serotonin transporter (SERT). The original trend to do this selectively (e.g., with SSRIs or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) has given way to combining various additional pharmacologic mechanisms with SERT inhibition, including dual actions by single drugs (e.g.,(More)
