Wounds caused by fights between elephants, foreign bodies, or improper use of management and restraining tools and devices, are a frequent medical issue requiring treatment in captive elephants in Asia (Phuangkum et al. 2005; YAGASU 2005; Fowler & Mikota 2006; Fahrimal & Sudarwati 2006). As a result of the above-described wounds, several cases of tetanus from atypical wound infection have been identified in captive elephants in Sumatra during the past years.

Tuberculosis in Elephants: Antibody Responses to Defined Antigens of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Potential for Early Diagnosis, and Monitoring of Treatment

TLDR
Antibody levels to certain antigens gradually decreased in response to antitubercular therapy, suggesting the possibility of treatment monitoring in elephant TB.

Immune responses of Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) to commercial tetanus toxoid vaccine.

EVALUASI RESPON ANTIBODI SAPI DAN KERBAU TERHADAP VAKSIN CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS TIPE A DENGAN MENGGUNAKAN ELISA

TLDR
The ELISA was used to evaluate vaccination results on cattle andbuffaloes againstenterotoxaemiacaused by Clostridiumperfringens typeA.

The Rise of EIA/ELISA

Elsewhere in this issue of Clinical Chemistry , Lequin (1) tells the story of how, in the late 1960s, enzyme immunoassay (EIA)/ELISA was conceived and how the technology subsequently found wide

The rise of EIA/ELISA.

TLDR
The proposal to explore the potential of enzymes linked to antigens or antibodies for immunochemical reactions with a colorimetric endpoint found approval and was used as the model analyte for exploration, which failed to develop an EIA-based dip-and-read pregnancy color test, in spite of much effort.

Isolation and characterization of serum immunoglobulin classes of the ostrich (Struthio camelus).

TLDR
The ostrich immunoglobulins were not recognized by monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies against immunoglOBulins of many species of animals tested, nor by antibodies against chicken immunoglobeulins.

The application of biotechnology to the diagnosis and control of animal diseases.

TLDR
In vitro methods can be used to monitor the immune response in an animal and, in particular, to measure the development of immunological memory and can estimate more accurately the quality and duration of an induced immune response without using animals for testing.

The application of biotechnology to the diagnosis and control of animal diseases.

TLDR
In vitro methods can be used to monitor the immune response in an animal and, in particular, to measure the development of immunological memory and it is now possible to estimate more accurately the quality and duration of an induced immune response without using animals for testing.

Biology, Medicine, and Surgery of Elephants

TLDR
The book’s chapters are well thought out; the first 2 provide an excellent introduction by presenting the evolution and taxonomy of elephants, and a history of elephants in captivity.
