  1. Immunohistological demonstration of Rhodococcus equi in a trotter foal.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(9):335 (2009) PMID 19813451

    A 3-month-old female trotter foal was euthanized due to severe dyspnoea. Pathomorphologically a chronic granulomatous to necrotizing pneumonia was found and Rhodoccocus (R.) equi was isolated microbiologically. An immunohistological method using a murine monoclonal antibody against a 15-17 kDa a...
  2. [Mortality in free living siskins (Spinus spinus Linnaeus, 1758) due to Salmonella typhimurium, phage type DT104 and DT013].

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(9):326 (2009) PMID 19813449

    This report deals with an enzootic due to Salmonella Typhimurium in two free living Eurasian siskins (Spinus spinus Linnaeus, 1758). Other birds in the vicinity of the siskins were not affected. Clinical signs consisted of non-specific symptoms such as ruffled plumage, apathy and reduced food in...
  3. A first case of ehrlichiosis in a horse in Poland.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(9):330 (2009) PMID 19813450

    The study was aimed at determining the cause of a disease in a horse exhibiting symptoms of fever, joint effusion, weakness, and extravasations on the mucous membranes. Blood was drawn from the animal for haematological and biochemical molecular tests. The PCR technique revealed the presence of ...
  4. Expression of heat shock proteins in tissues from young pigs exposed to transport stress.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(9):321 (2009) PMID 19813448

    The objective of the present study was to investigate the role of heat shock proteins (Hsps) as potential stress response marker in several organs of transported pigs. Constitutive (Hsp90, Hsp70 and Hsp27) and inducible (Hsp72 and Hsp86) Hsps expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, liver and kidney...
  5. Treatment of septicaemia and severe bacterial infections in foals with a new cefquinome formulation: a field study.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(9):316 (2009) PMID 19813447

    A multicentre field study was conducted in accordance with VICH Guideline on Good Clinical Practice (VICH 2000) to confirm the efficacy and safety of a new formulation of cefquinome for the treatment of naturally occurring severe bacterial infections and septicaemia in foals. Thirty-nine foals s...
  6. Mouse intestine colonization ability of Campylobacter coli strains.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(7):255 (2009) PMID 19753795

    Campylobacter coli is an etiological agent of gastrointestinal and extraintestinal infections in man and animals, and can be found as a commensal in gastrointestinal tract of animals. In this study, we aimed to determine differences among C coli strains in colonization of the intestinal tract of...
  7. Influence of ram presence (permanent vs. intermittent) on estrus parameters and behaviours in Kivircik ewes.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(7):260 (2009) PMID 19753796

    The present study was undertaken to investigate the effects of type of ram presence (permanent vs. intermittent) on estrus onset, estrus duration and frequency of sexual behaviours in Kivircik ewes. During the breeding season, 20 multiparous Kivircik ewes were divided into two groups of permanen...
  8. Role of live yeasts in rumen ecosystem.

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(7):244 (2009) PMID 19753793

    For many years, ruminant nutritionists and microbiologists have been interested in manipulating the microbial ecosystem of the rumen to improve production efficiency by domestic ruminants. Antibiotic ionophores have been used successfully for this purpose. However, the use of antibiotics in anim...
  9. [Examination of the compatibility of a Salmonella Typhimurium-live vaccine Salmoporc for three day old suckling piglets].

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(7):249 (2009) PMID 19753794

    The present study intended to investigate the compatibility of the orally applicated Salmonella Typhimurium live vaccine Salmoporc on day 3 and 21, respectively. Piglets which only received saline solution orally were used as negative control. During eight hours following vaccination, fecal cons...
  10. Investigations into effects on performance and glutathione peroxidase activity in broilers when increasing selenium contents of complete diets appropriate to animals' selenium requirements by adding different selenium compounds (organic vs. inorganic).

    DTW. Deutsche tierarztliche Wochenschrift 116(6):233 (2009) PMID 19537046

    The aim of this study was to compare the effects of inorganic and organic selenium compounds supplementations to diets containing adequate selenium in broilers on performance, carcass traits, plasma and tissue glutathione peroxidase activity. A total of 150 one-day-old broilers were randomized i...
