Haematological findings in 158 dairy cows with toxic mastitis with a focus on the leukogram

The leukogram has significant diagnostic value and may aid in the modification of treatment when needed, particularly leukopenia, lymphopenia and degenerative left shift.

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.

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.

Clinical utility of plasma progesterone and blood and plasma glucose concentrations in predicting parturition in Holstein cows.

It is concluded that a decrease in plasma [prog] is currently the most accurate test for predicting calving within 24 h and measurement of [gluc]b is a promising new test for the cow-side prediction of parturition in dairy cows due to its accuracy, practicality, and low cost.



Is it the systemic inflammatory response syndrome or endotoxemia in horses with colic?

The results in Bristol confirmed that the troublesome Phage Type 80 Staphylococcus which was isolated in 1953 by Rountree and Freeman in Australia has enhanced virulen.

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.

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.

Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome in Humans and Animals

A comparative review will provide information regarding the history and pathophysiology of MODS in humans and discuss how MODS affects each major organ system in animals.

This concise evidence-based review highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the current data to inform the practicing clinician as to which patients are likely to derive significant benefit from corticosteroid treatment, while waiting for more definitive guidance from future multicenter, prospective, randomized, controlled trials designed to better answer these important therapeutic questions.

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.
