Norwegian or Crusted Sarcoptic Mange in Two Leishmanial Dogs (Case Reports)

AbstractNorwegian or crusted scabies (N/CS) is a rare skin disease with very few cases reported in the dog or the cat. Two adult, stray dogs were admitted in our clinic with a generalized, multifocal to diffuse and nonpruritic dermatitis that was characterized by severe crusting, scaling, and ulceration. In both instances, leishmaniosis and N/CS were diagnosed by immunofluorescent antibody test serology, lymph node cytology, and skin scrapings in which high numbers of Sarcoptes mites were...

What's New in Antibiotics, Antifungals, and Antivirals for Horses

WHAT’S NEW IN ANTIBIOTICS, ANTIFUNGALS, AND ANTIVIRALS FOR HORSES ANTIBIOTICS Fluoroquinolones The fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics work via inhibition of DNA gyrase (topoisomerase II), which is required for bacterial DNA replication, transcription, repair, and recombination. Resistance is mediated through chromosomal mutations in DNA gyrase (gyrA) which confers cross-resistance to other fluoroquinolones. Fluoroquinolones distribute well to the tissues and penetrate well...

Equine Immune-Mediated Myofascial Syndromes and Equine Lyme Disease

ABSTRACT A pattern of acupuncture point sensitivity has been observed on diagnostic acupuncture point palpation examination (DAPPE) in cases of equine infectious diseases such as equine borreliosis (Lyme disease), equine protozoal myelitis, and equine herpes virus as well as others. Extreme reactivity of all association (Back shu) points, alarm (Front mu) points, acupoints in the cervical, shoulder, thoracolumbar and lumbosacral regions as well as pelvic limb points along the Bladder and...

The Use of Vaccines and Immunostimulants in the Horse

THE USE OF VACCINES AND IMMUNOSTIMULANTS IN THE HORSE Immunology involves the critical interplay between host health and virulent pathogen challenge. The initial element of host protection is a result of intact innate immune function. For instance, disruption to the superficial epithelium or mucosal barriers will provide an opportunity for pathogen challenge and potential disease. Beneath the superficial epithelium lies the innate immune system, which has been carefully designed to...

Immunology III: Evaluation of Cell-mediated Immunity

IMMUNOLOGY III: EVALUATION OF CELL-MEDIATED IMMUNITY Thorough evaluation of vaccine efficacy requires the evaluation of T-cell responses to vaccination in populations of animals over time. This requires assays that can be performed on large numbers of out bred animals. Some assays for T-cell activity are too cumbersome to use for this purpose, for example, assays for T-cell cytotoxicity. Other assays for T-cell activity are inherently more practical for this purpose. Evaluation of T-cell...
