Redescription of Neospora caninum and its differentiation from related coccidia.
The authors redescribe the parasite, distinguish it from related coccidia, and provide accession numbers to its type specimens deposited in museums. Expand
Naturally-Occurring Neospora caninum Infection in an Adult Sheep and Her Twin Fetuses
Histopathological examination of the ewe revealed N. caninum tissue cysts and focal gliosis with mononuclear cell cuffings in an adult sheep, the first report of N.Caninum infection in twin ovine fetuses and in anAdult sheep. Expand
Neuropathological studies of chickens infected with highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.
Findings suggest that viral infection of the vascular endothelium and subsequent involvement of ependymal cells play important roles in the pathogenesis of the central nervous system lesions of chickens inoculated with avian influenza virus strains. Expand
Pathological studies of chickens experimentally infected with two highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.
Findings suggested that cardiovascular system involvement played an important role in the pathogenesis of these virus infections. Expand
Isolation of Neospora caninum From the Brain of a Pregnant Sheep
Neospora caninum was isolated from the brain of a naturally infected pregnant sheep by inoculation of immunodeficient mice with a homogenate of the brain tissue. The ewe showed no clinical signs.Expand
Necrotizing meningoencephalitis in pug dogs in Japan.
The three cases, which were diagnosed as pug dog encephalitis, resembled those previously reported in the United States of America, Switzerland and Italy. Expand
Genetically modified Shiga toxin 2e (Stx2e) producing Escherichia coli is a vaccine candidate for porcine edema disease.
A mutant that retained immunogenicity but lost Vero cell cytotoxicity was constructed, which produced genetically modified toxin (Stx2e*) by replacing glutamate with glutamine at position 167 and arginine with leucine at position 170 of the A subunit, showing that YT106 might be a good candidate of a live attenuated vaccine strain to protect against ED.

Toxoplasma gondii Does Not Persist In Goldfish (Carassius auratus)
Results suggest that T. gondii does not persist in fish, and the survival period of tachyzoites inoculated into goldfish muscle was bioassayed in mice and through PCR analysis. Expand
Pigmented cutaneous papillomatosis (pigmented epidermal nevus) in three pug dogs; histopathology, electron microscopy and analysis of viral DNA by the polymerase chain reaction.
Three cases of pigmented cutaneous papillomatosis in pug dogs were investigated histopathologically, immunohistochemically and electron microscopically and DNA analyses with the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) were performed in two cases. Expand
Evaluation of the effect of preoperative chemotherapy in bone sarcomas. 99mTc-HMDP scintigraphy in 34 cases.
The authors quantitatively analyzed images of 99mTc-HMDP bone scintigraphy in 34 bone sarcomas before and after preoperative chemotherapy to identify good scintigraphic responders and found a positive correlation between the histological effect and the alteration ratio. Expand
