The objective of this experiment was to compare vaccination schedules for ewes and their lambs to raise antibody concentrations to epsilon-toxin of Clostridium perfringens, the causative agent of enterotoxemia. Half of 200 Finnsheep x Dorset ewes were vaccinated with C. perfringens type D toxoid vaccine 3 wk before lambing. Serum samples were obtained from 20 ewes that were to be vaccinated and 20 ewes that would remain unvaccinated before treatment and at wk 2, 1, and 0 before the start of… Expand
ANTIBODY RESPONSE TO EPSILON TOXIN OF CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS IN CAPTIVE RED DEER (CERVUS ELAPHUS) OVER A 13-MONTH PERIOD
TLDR
Evaluated the serologic responses in red deer over a 13-mo period after vaccination with a multivalent clostridial vaccine, containing an aluminium hydroxide adjuvant to determine the protective antibody titers to challenge and how long this immunity might persist after vaccination. Expand
Cinética dos anticorpos de origem colostral contra a toxina épsilon de Clostridium perfringens tipo D em cordeiros
TLDR
It is concluded that vaccination of pregnant ewes 30 days before parturition allowed the transfer of colostral antibodies specific enough to guarantee the immunity considered protective of the newborn lamb against enterotoxemia until its entry into the feedlot, with 60 days of age. Expand
Comparison of immune responses following the administration of Enterotoxaemia vaccine in sheep and goats.
TLDR
In conclusion, immune response of goats against enterotoxaemia vaccine was of short duration compared with the sheep indicating frequent use of v accine for better immunity. Expand
Vaccination of ewes and lambs against parainfluenza3 to prevent lamb pneumonia
TLDR
Testing the effectiveness of vaccination against parainfluenza3 to prevent pneumonia in lambs in a flock in which over 9% of 2657 lambs born alive in the previous 2 years had died of Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica pneumonia found the effect of vaccination was not statistically significant. Expand
Responses of pregnant ewes and young lambs to ovalbumin immunization, antiovalbumin antibody transfer to lambs, and temporal changes in antiovalbumin antibody1,2
TLDR
The results support recommendations to vaccinate ewes against common pathogens during late pregnancy and to ensure that lambs receive adequate colostrum soon after birth. Expand
Maturity of the Lamb Immune System
TLDR
The effect of age on the immunological competency of sheep in order to determine the optimal schedule for vaccinating lambs was determined and an increase in lymphocyte production in vaccinated animals in response to vaccines was seen. Expand
Preparation and Evaluation of Alum Precipitate and Oil Adjuvant Multivalent Vaccines Against Clostridium perfringens
Enterotoxaemia is one of the hazardous diseases of the livestock. In Pakistan prophylaxis failure is due to the vaccination with type D monovalent vaccine. There is a need to develop a cost effExpand
Genotyping of isolates of Clostridium perfringens from vaccinated and unvaccinated sheep
TLDR
Evaluated the enterotoxaemia vaccine effects in reducing isolates of intestinal clostridia genus specifically C. perfringens isolates and found vaccination against enterotoxinaemia had a significant effect. Expand
Distribution and antimicrobial resistance patterns of Clostridium Perfringens isolated from vaccinated and unvaccinated goats
TLDR
Vaccination with enterotoxaemia in goats indicated non-significant effect (P), and C. perfringens type C and type E were not detected positive in both vaccinated and unvaccinated goats. Expand

Clostridial vaccination efficacy on stimulating and maintaining an immune response in beef cows and calves.
TLDR
In conclusion, titers for clostridial diseases in 50- to 53-d-old calves can be enhanced if dams are vaccinated approximately 4 mo before calving, and 120 d between clastridial vaccinations seems to be too long for adequate protection. Expand
The relation between the rabbit potency test and the response of sheep to sheep clostridial vaccines.
TLDR
Rabbits provide a suitable model for the assessment of potency of sheep clostridial vaccines, and the response of both species to Cl tetani antigen was similar in terms of serum antitoxic values. Expand
Quantification of bovine IgG, IgM and IgA antibodies to Clostridium perfringens B-toxin by enzyme immunoassay II Systemic effects of maternally derived antibodies on immunization of newborn calves.
TLDR
It is recommended that calves be vaccinated at three days postpartum with a secondary booster administered not later than sixty-three days, and neonatal immunization in the presence of maternal antibody was demonstrated efficacious with respect to production of primary and secondary antibody responses.

Differences in signs and lesions in sheep and goats with enterotoxemia induced by intraduodenal infusion of Clostridium perfringens type D.
TLDR
A difference between the lambs and goat kids in the lesions caused by experimentally induced enterotoxemia may explain the discrepancies reported between sheep and goats in clinical signs, response to treatment, and efficacy of vaccination observed in naturally induced entertoxemia in the 2 species.

TLDR
Two reversed solid-phase radioimmunoassays have been developed for quantitative determination of antibodies against Clostridium perfringens type D epsilon toxin and allow the rapid and inexpensive screening of large groups of vaccinated sheep, and are very suitable for measuring small amounts of Cl. perfringen D Epsilon antibodies with a small experimental error.

TLDR
Two of the monoclonal antibodies, M26/2 and M27/12, neutralized epsilon toxin in the mouse lethality assay and are considered suitable as reagents to detect epsilus toxin in assay procedures. Expand
