Cytological and bacteriological sampling from filters used for embryo recovery to evaluate the uterine status of donor mares.

Acta Vet Hung 2018 Sep;66(3):462-473

3 Centro Militar de Cría Caballar de Ecija, Cría Caballar de las F.A.S. , Ecija (Sevilla) , Spain.

While testing for uterine bacterial infection is usually performed prior to artificial insemination (AI), samples taken during or after embryo flushing are generally not assessed either in subfertile and old mares or in fertile mares, even though knowledge of the status of the uterine environment in which the embryo is to develop would help to predict the outcome of embryo transfer programmes. The presence of bacteria and inflammatory cells in the liquid retained in the filter after uterine flushing in donors was determined at the moment of embryo recovery. Primarily, a group of mares (n = 8) displaying evident clinical signs of endometritis was selected to evaluate the cytological and bacteriological findings in filters after uterine flushing and in uterine cotton swabs.

Is twin pregnancy, calving and pregnancy loss predictable by serum pregnancy-specific protein b (pspb) concentration 28-35 days after ai in dairy cows?

Acta Vet Hung 2018 Sep;66(3):451-461

3 National Agricultural Research and Innovation Center, Research Institute for Animal Breeding, Nutrition and Meat Science , Gesztenyés u. 1, H-2053 Herceghalom , Hungary.

Double ovulation occurs more frequently in multiparous cows with high milk production than in primiparous cows and the rate of twin pregnancy/calving is increasing worldwide. Diagnosis of twin pregnancy is possible by ultrasound at the time of early pregnancy examination [28-34 days after artificial insemination (AI)]. Pregnancy proteins are also well-known indicators of gestation. Read More

Adenoviruses of the most ancient primate lineages support the theory on virus-host co-evolution.

Acta Vet Hung 2018 Sep;66(3):474-487

1 Institute for Veterinary Medical Research, Centre for Agricultural Research, Hungarian Academy of Sciences , Budapest , Hungary.

The scarcity or complete lack of information on the adenoviruses (AdVs) occurring in the most ancient non-human primates resulted in the initiation of a study for exploring their abundance and diversity in prosimians and New World monkeys (NWMs). In order to assess the variability of these AdVs and the possible signs of the hypothesised virus-host co-evolution, samples from almost every family of NWMs and prosimians were screened for the presence of AdVs. A PCRscreening of 171 faecal or organ samples from live or dead, captive or wild-living prosimians and NWMs was performed. Read More

Glomerulosclerosis in transgenic rabbits with ubiquitous Venus protein expression.

Acta Vet Hung 2018 06;66(2):281-293

Animal Biotechnology Department, NARIC Agricultural Biotechnology Institute , Szent-Györgyi A. u. 4, H-2100 Gödöllő , Hungary.

Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a potential cause of nephrotic syndrome both in humans and pet mammals. Glomerulopathy was reported earlier in green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgenic (TG) mice, but glomerulosclerosis has not been examined in GFP TG rabbits so far. In the present study, the potential manifestation of FSGS was investigated in both Venus TG rabbits generated by Sleeping Beauty (SB) transposition and age-matched control New Zealand White (NZW) rabbits.

1 National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre, Research Institute for Animal Breeding, Nutrition and Meat Science , Gesztenyés u. 1, H-2053 Herceghalom , Hungary.

The early detection of pregnancy and the determination of fetal numbers have economic benefits in sheep production because of the seasonal breeding patterns where missing a breeding opportunity means the loss of one productive year. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the B6-HRP ELISA for ovine pregnancy-specific protein B (oPSPB) measurement in the detection of pregnancy and estimation of fetal numbers in different sheep breeds. BioPRYN® ELISA assay kit was used for the detection of pregnancy in the experimental animals. Read More

Laboratory for Bacterial Zoonoses and Molecular Diagnosis of Bacterial Diseases, Department for Bacteriology and Parasitology, Croatian Veterinary Institute , Savska cesta 143, 10000 Zagreb , Croatia.

The most recent data on the incidence of brucellosis in Southeast Europe prove the persistence of this zoonosis in the area, regardless of constant efforts at controlling it as one of the most dangerous zoonoses. Forty-three Brucella melitensis strains were collected from cattle, sheep, goats and humans from Croatia as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina between 2009 and 2015. The strains were identified and genotyped in order to determine their epidemiological background. Read More
