Disease relevance of Pleuropneumonia


High impact information on Pleuropneumonia


Chemical compound and disease context of Pleuropneumonia

  • Contagious bovine pleuropneumonia is a major threat for cattle in Africa. Since 1956 the T1/44 strain has been used as a vaccine, and later on, T1sr, a streptomycin-resistant variant that gives fewer post-vaccinal reactions had been developed [11].
  • Capsular polysaccharide conjugate vaccines against contagious bovine pleuropneumonia: Immune responses and protection in mice [12].
  • A latex agglutination test for field diagnosis of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia [13].
  • Medication with feed containing 400 mg and 800 mg oxytetracycline/kg failed to prevent pleuropneumonia in the challenged pigs, and the mortality rates in these groups were two out of 10 and one out of nine pigs, respectively [14].
  • Variations in urinary gamma glutamyl transferase/urinary creatinine ratio in horses with or without pleuropneumonia treated with gentamicin [15].
