Isolates of Fusobacterium necrophorum were obtained from 124 bovine hepatic abscesses (in 119 cattle) and from the ruminal contents of 12 cattle. Three biotypes (A, AB, and B) were found. Type A isolates were most common in hepatic abscesses, and type B isolates were most common in ruminal contents. Virulence studies in mice indicated that type A isolates were more pathogenic than types AB or B isolates. The difference in virulences between types A and B isolates was not related to the toxicity… CONTINUE READING
