Causes: (A) Antigenic toxins: Produced by bacteria and to less extent by helminthes parasites. Antigenic toxins are divided into:-Exotoxins: Which are diffused in the surrounding media this toxin may be ingested or may be produced by heavy growth in the bowel e.g. enterotoxaemia, or from growth in tissues as in black leg, black disease. -Endotoxins: They are lipopolysaccharides and are found within the cell as a part of cell wall. They find their way into the medium and into the systemic… Expand

Relationship between hepcidin and oxidant/antioxidant status in calves with suspected neonatal septicemia
Hepcidin may play a significant role in nutritional immunity and the pathogenesis of diseases, and the changes in the TAS and TOS levels were found to be statistically significant. Expand
Haematological findings in 158 cows with acute toxic mastitis with a focus on the leukogram
The hypothesis that the leukograms of surviving and non-surviving cows differ was rejected and theLeukogram has not sufficient prognostic potential to be used in the decision to treat or not to treat a cow with ATM. Expand


Is it the systemic inflammatory response syndrome or endotoxemia in horses with colic?
The mechanisms underlying the response of the horse's innate immune system to key structural components of the microorganisms that initiate these conditions are highlighted, including how some of those responses differ from other species. Expand

The Immunopathology of Sepsis: Pathogen Recognition, Systemic Inflammation, the Compensatory Anti‐Inflammatory Response, and Regulatory T Cells
The heterogeneous nature of this syndrome and the difficulty of modeling it in vitro or in vivo has both frustrated the advancement of new therapies and emphasized the continuing importance of patient‐based clinical research in this area of human and veterinary medicine. Expand
Pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of neonatal sepsis
Sepsis is a major cause of death in neonatal foals and, in recent years, significant progress in the understanding of the underlying pathophysiology has been made, but prevention remains difficult and focuses on early recognition while prophylactic use of antimicrobials is discouraged. Expand

Use of analgesic drugs for pain management in sheep
B Balanced analgesia using more than one class of drug, such as an α2 agonist and N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonist, with the combination selected for the circumstances, probably provides the best analgesia for severe pain. Expand
