  1. An outbreak of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in Ngamiland district of north-western Botswana.

    Veterinary Record 143(2):46 (1998) PMID 9699252

    An outbreak of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) was detected in Botswana in 1995 after more than half a century of freedom from the disease. Lung tissues, pleural fluids, nasal swabs and serum samples were examined in laboratories in Botswana, South Africa and Namibia and the findings were c...
  2. Detection of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae by PCR on field strains from healthy and diseased pigs.

    Current Microbiology 46(6):443 (2003) PMID 12732952

    We investigated whether primers able to specifically amplify a 0.7-kb DNA fragment from the conserved cpx genes could be applied to analyze A. pleuropneumoniae field isolates. The specific cpx primers were tested on 120 strains of A. pleuropneumoniae and other NAD-dependent field isolates from healt...
  3. Effect of some cultural factors on T1 broth vaccine for contagious bovine pleuropneumonia.

    Tropical Animal Health and Production 15(3):144 (1983) PMID 6353721

    The effect of some aspects of buffering capacity, glucose concentration, length of incubation and extent of exposure to air during the preparation of live Mycoplasma mycoides var. mycoides strain T1 broth culture vaccine was investigated. A consistently good vaccine was obtained using 0.07 M phospha...
  4. [Improvement and acceleration of the diagnosis of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia by direct detection of the microbe using polymerase chai...

    Berliner und Muenchener Tieraerztliche Wochensc... 111(7-8):268 (1998) PMID 9741182

    A diagnostic procedure is described for the detection of Mycoplasma mycoides subsp. mycoides SC, the causative agent of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia. DNA extracted from clinical samples was investigated by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using at least 2 different primer pairs, one species-...
  5. CCPP: antibodies to F38 polysaccharide in Mali goats.

    Veterinary Record 127(14):353 (1990) PMID 2260241

  6. Molecular cloning and expression of a surface lipoprotein of Mycoplasma capricolum as a potential antigen for serological diagnosis.

    Veterinary Research Communications 31 Suppl 1:257 (2007) PMID 17682889

  7. Ulcerative balanitis and vulvitis of Dorper sheep in South Africa: a study on its aetiology and clinical features.

    Journal of the South African Veterinary Associa... 76(4):197 (2005) PMID 16642715

    Ovine ulcerative balanitis and vulvitis in sheep of the Dorper breed has been observed in South Africa since 1979. Its aetiology has not been conclusively resolved, and there is some discrepancy in descriptions of its clinical features. In order to identify the pathogenic micro-organism/s that contr...
  8. Passive haemagglutination and complement fixation as diagnostic tests for contagious caprine pleuropneumonia caused by the F-38 strain of my...

    Research in Veterinary Science 35(1):1 (1983) PMID 6622834

    Passive haemagglutination and complement fixation tests were used to assess the antibody response of goats to the F-38 strain of mycoplasma. The passive haemagglutination test was found to have a positive correlation (r:0.89) with the complement fixation test in detection of antibody to strain F-38....
  9. Optimum age to vaccinate for contagious caprine pleuropneumonia.

    Veterinary Record 123(22):572 (1988) PMID 3212905

  10. Dealing with animal disease emergencies in Africa: prevention and preparedness.

    Revue scientifique et technique (International ... 18(1):59 (1999) PMID 10190205

    Emergency preparedness planning for animal diseases is a relatively new concept that is only now being applied in Africa. Information can be drawn from numerous recent disease epidemics involving rinderpest, contagious bovine pleuropneumonia (CBPP) and Rift Valley fever. These examples clearly demon...
