Blockade of p-selectin reduces neutrophil infiltration into the murine testis after ischemia-reperfusion-injury.
Germ cell specific apoptosis after ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) induced testicular injury is dependent on neutrophil recruitment to the testis. Intravascular adhesion molecules like the P- and E- selectins play an important role in this recruitment.The purpose of this study was to inhibit neutrophil r...
[Implementation of cross-compliance in the area of animal welfare].
We will expect a discharge by Decision (EC) 2006/778. A controlling system was installed to ensure that cross compliance rules are applied consistently, for example by making subsequent controls by controlling institutions....
["Reasonable cause"--an undefined legal term for the justification of the killing of equids].
Killing of a vertebrate animal in Germany is allowed or not punishable only if a "reasonable cause" can be identified (Article 17 No. 1 TierSchG). A legal definition of the term "reasonable cause" does not exist. Currently the following definitions of the "reasonable cause" for the killing of equids...
Review of genetic aspects of radiological alterations in the navicular bone of the horse.
Navicular disease or podotrochlosis has long been known to cause forelimb lameness in horses. It had been proposed that the development of podotrochlosis has similarities to the human osteoarthritis (OA) complex. Alterations of the navicular bone can be made visible early in life only on the basis o...
The influence of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids feeding on composition of fatty acids in fatty tissues and eggs of laying hens.
The paper deals with supplementation of hen diet with oils with increased content of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and occurrence of fatty acids (FA) in fatty tissues and eggs of laying hens after the respective supplementation. The experiment was carried out on 30 laying hens of ISA BR...
[Status of law-making on animal welfare].
Since the last report there have been major revisions of laws and ordinances. Deliberations on rules of Community law were also continued.

Organization of risk analysis in the EU and the new EU food regulation.
Given the scope and magnitude of the food supply in modern societies, there is no way to ensure that all foods are kept free from potential sources of contamination. Instead, food safety is enhanced by systematically concentrating upon minimizing opportunities for contamination at every point from f...
[Detection of Haemophilus parasuis and Mycoplasma hyorhinis in swine and association of those pathogens with clinical and pathological-anato...
In routine diagnostic it is difficult to detect a Haemophilus parasuis infection causing a polyserositis. In the presented study, a detection method by means of PCR, from collective swabs of the serosal surfaces from animals, with and without fibrinous serositis, was investigated. A significant asso...
[Case report: Libyostrongylus douglassii-associated proventriculitis in ostriches in Germany].
Cases of Libyostrongylus douglassii-associated proventriculitis in an adult female ostrich and two ostrich chicks occurring on two farms in different federal states of Germany are described. The adult bird was recently bought and kept under quarantaine conditions without contact to other animals of...
[How the bovine viral diarrhea virus outwits the immune system].
I interferon. In addition, persistently infected cells are resistant to the induction of apoptosis by double-stranded RNA and do not produce interferon when treated with this pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP) that signals viral infection. Moreover, when treated with interferon, cells pers...
