The objective of this study was to compare the concentrations of inflammatory cytokines in uterine flush and serum from healthy postpartum dairy cows and cows with clinical or subclinical endometritis. Clinical endometritis was diagnosed by observation of vaginal discharges (>50% pus) and subclinical endometritis was diagnosed by evaluation of uterine cytology (neutrophils >18%) at 4 weeks postpartum. Uterine flush was obtained from 48 cows at 4, 6, and 8 weeks postpartum for evaluation of… CONTINUE READING
