Chlamydophila pecorum found in the intestine and vaginal mucus of asymptomatic ruminants has also been associated with different pathological conditions in ruminants, swine and koalas. Some endangered species such as water buffalos and bandicoots have also been found to be infected by C. pecorum. The persistence of C. pecorum strains in the intestine and vaginal mucus of ruminants could cause long-term sub-clinical infection affecting the animal's health. C. pecorum strains present many genetic and antigenic variations, but coding tandem repeats have recently been found in some C. pecorum genes, allowing C. pecorum strains isolated from sick animals to be differentiated from those isolated from asymptomatic animals. This review provides an update on C. pecorum infections in different animal hosts and the implications for animal health. The taxonomy, typing and genetic aspects of C. pecorum are also reviewed.

Studied the spectral and flux variability of IC 310 from the X-ray band to the
VHE regime. Methods. The daily light curve of IC 310 above 300 GeV has been
Measured with MAGIC from 2009 October to 2010 February. Contemporaneous
Fermi-LAT data (2008-2011) in the 10-500 GeV energy range were also an...
Background. Respiratory infection is one of the most common reasons for hospitalization in adults, and recent evidence suggests many of these illnesses are associated with viruses. Although bacterial infection is known to complicate viral infections, the frequency and impact of mix...
We present the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis (Cnidaria, Anthozoan) as a novel model organism to profile bio-non bio interactions, and show a comprehensive toxicological analysis performed on embryos, larvae and adults treated with fluorescent cadmium-based nanocrystals. Spanning from in vivo bi...
