The agent of so-called “salmon poisoning disease” of dogs on the Pacific Coast of the USA, first reported by Cordy and Gorham (1950), is an intracytoplasmic, rickettsia-like, sometimes pleomorphic microorganism found particularly in the reticulo-endothelial cells of lymphoid tissues of infected Canidae. It is transmitted in nature to members of the Canidae by ingestion of fish containing encysted cercariae of the intestinal fluke, Nanophyetus salmincola. The natural, developmental cycle of this… Expand

TLDR
There appeared to be a tendency for the peak of the gamma globulin component to become bifid during the course of infection in the gerbil, such that one peak could be considered to have a migration rate similar to that observed for the infected cotton rat, golden hamster or Chinese hamster. Expand
Leishmania donovani: antibody response to chicken ovalbumin by infected golden hamsters.
TLDR
The individual antibody response to ovalbumin (OA) was studied in groups of hamsters infected with Leishmania donovani and below this level of parasitization the anti-OA titers of the infected animals were lower despite increased concentrations of gamma globulin in their serum as shown by electrophoretic studies.

Studies on Trichostrongylus axel (Cobbold, 1879). III. Blood and plasma volume, total serum protein, and electrophoretic serum fractionation in infected and uninfected calves.
TLDR
The sequence of events with respect to blood and plasma volumes in infected animals appears to be a development of polycythemia hypovolemia which, if the animal survives, develops into an oligocythemic hypovolesmia, and at a point in the transition from the former to the latter condition, a state of simple hypOVolemia will thus exist.

Pathogenesis of anaemia in hamsters infected withLeishmania donovani
TLDR
It would appear that the erythrocytes adsorb immune complexes on their surfaces and become liable to enhanced phagocytosis by the macrophages of the liver and the spleen in hamsters infected with Leishmania donovani. Expand

Immune complex glomerulonephritis in experimental kala‐azar II: Detection and characterization of parasite antigens and antibodies eluted from kidneys of Leishmania donovani‐infected hamsters
TLDR
The eluted immunoglobulins showed specificity for L. donovani antigens and hamster immunoglOBulins (rheumatoid factor‐like activity) and were recognized only by the anti‐amastigote serum. Expand
Cellular blood constituents and serum protein fractions of the chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera).
TLDR
The hematology and serum proteins of the chinchilla are described and significant individual variation was detected in the levels of albumin and globulin and the ratio of these two fractions. Expand
Immunosuppression associated with visceral leishmaniasis of hamsters
TLDR
Elimination of the parasite burden by glucantime therapy restored responsiveness of lymphocytes to parasite antigens and immunosuppression was demonstrated during the course of Leishmania donovani infection of outbred and inbred hamsters. Expand

On the anatomy and systematic position of the causative agent of so-called salmon poisoning.
TLDR
It appears that Nanophyetus salmincola has no genital sucker or similar organ and no seminal receptacle and has a conspicuous cirrus pouch, and the eggs proved to be much smaller than the suckers and not the contrary, as is shown on Chapin's illustration. Expand
CLASSIFICATION OF RICKETTSIAE PATHOGENIC TO VERTEBRATES

  • 1953
TLDR
It is shown that the conjunctival inclusions reported by Uhlenhuth and Boing, in cases of hog cholera, had nothing to do with this disease, but were rickettsias probably causing an independent conjunctivitis, and the first cases of psittacosis or ornithosis in pigeons were described. Expand
The life history of the salmon poisoning fluke Troglotrema salmincola (Chapin)

The reproductive system of the living fluke and the stages of the life cycle of this fluke are illustrated and details of anatomy recorded. Expand

TLDR
There is no adequate substitute for the precise, bibliographic reference to the rickettsial agents of diseasc provided by application of the binomial system, and there is no question of its utility as applied to this group of pathogens. Expand
Cultivation of Rickettsia prowazeki in Dead Chick Embryos
TLDR
Chick embryos which were killed by chilling on the 3rd day of development and were thereafter maintained at 37°C for 16 days still contained living cells that multiplied abundantly in dead chick embryos which contained surviving cells. Expand
