Survey of owner motivations and veterinary input of owners feeding diets containing raw animal products
Background The practice of feeding of diets containing raw animal products (RAP) to pets (dogs and cats) is discouraged by veterinary organizations and governmental public health organizations. Nevertheless, the practice ...
Multi-scale immunoepidemiological modeling of within-host and between-host HIV dynamics: systematic review of mathematical models
Objective The objective of this study is to conduct a systematic review of multi-scale HIV immunoepidemiological models to improve our understanding of the synergistic impact between the HIV viral-immune dynamics at the ...
Expanding Host Range and Cross-Species Infection of Hepatitis E Virus
Hepatitis E is an important public health disease . Although the mortality rate is less than 1% in the general population, it can reach up to 25% in infected pregnant women. According to the World Health Organization, ...
Cardiovascular and respiratory effects of lumbosacral epidural bupivacaine in isoflurane-anesthetized dogs: The effects of two volumes of 0.25% solution
The purpose of this study was to compare cardiovascular and respiratory effects of two volumes of bupivacaine 0.25% (0.2 mL kg-1—treatment BUP02—and 0.4 mL kg-1 –treatment BUP04) administered epidurally at the lumbosacral ...
Neutrophils and neutrophil serine proteases are increased in the spleens of estrogen-treated C57BL/6 mice and several strains of spontaneous lupus-prone mice
Estrogen, a natural immunomodulator, regulates the development and function of diverse immune cell types. There is now renewed attention on neutrophils and neutrophil serine proteases (NSPs) such as neutrophil elastase ...
Cell-Based Therapies for Joint Disease in Veterinary Medicine: What We Have Learned and What We Need to Know
Biological cell-based therapies for the treatment of joint disease in veterinary patients include autologous-conditioned serum, platelet-rich plasma, and expanded or nonexpanded mesenchymal stem cell products. This narrative ...
Comparison of equine tendon-, muscle-, and bone marrow–derived cells cultured on tendon matrix
Objective—To compare viability and biosynthetic capacities of cells isolated from equine tendon, muscle, and bone marrow grown on autogenous tendon matrix.
Functional Characterization of Detergent-Decellularized Equine Tendon Extracellular Matrix for Tissue Engineering Applications
Natural extracellular matrix provides a number of distinct advantages for engineering replacement orthopedic tissue due to its intrinsic functional properties. The goal of this study was to optimize a biologically derived ...
Fusobacterium Genomics Using MinION and Illumina Sequencing Enables Genome Completion and Correction
(American Society for Microbiology, 2018)
Understanding the virulence mechanisms of human pathogens from the genus Fusobacterium has been hindered by a lack of properly assembled and annotated genomes. Here we report the first complete genomes for seven Fusobacterium ...
Further Characterization of the Capsule-Like Complex (CLC) Produced by Francisella tularensis Subspecies tularensis: Protective Efficacy and Similarity to Outer Membrane Vesicles
Francisella tularensis is the etiologic agent of tularemia, and subspecies tularensis (type A) is the most virulent subspecies. The live vaccine strain (LVS) of subspecies holarctica produces a capsule-like complex (CLC) ...
