Vet Microbiol 2021 Apr 17;255:109017. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Department of Veterinary Science, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Miyazaki, Miyazaki, 889-2192, Japan; Graduate School of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, University of Miyazaki, Miyazaki, 889-2192, Japan; Center for Animal Disease Control, University of Miyazaki, Miyazaki, 889-2192, Japan. Electronic address:

Bovine coronavirus (BCoV) is one of the agents causing bovine respiratory disease complex (BRDC), with single infection tending to be mild to moderate; the probability of developing pneumonia in BRDC may be affected by viral and bacterial combinations. Previously, we reported that bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) infection enhances adherence of Pasteurella multocida (PM) to cells derived from the bovine lower respiratory tract but that BRSV infection in cells derived from the upper respiratory tract reduces PM adherence. In this study, we sought to clarify whether the modulation of bacterial adherence to cells derived from the bovine upper and lower respiratory tract is shared by other BRDC-related viruses by infecting bovine epithelial cells from the trachea, bronchus and lung with BCoV and/or PM.

Herd immunity drives the epidemic fadeout of avian cholera in Arctic-nesting seabirds.

Sci Rep 2021 Jan 13;11(1):1046. Epub 2021 Jan 13.

Department of Veterinary Pathology, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, S7N 5B4, Canada.

Avian cholera, caused by the bacterium Pasteurella multocida, is a common and important infectious disease of wild birds in North America. Between 2005 and 2012, avian cholera caused annual mortality of widely varying magnitudes in Northern common eiders (Somateria mollissima borealis) breeding at the largest colony in the Canadian Arctic, Mitivik Island, Nunavut. Although herd immunity, in which a large proportion of the population acquires immunity to the disease, has been suggested to play a role in epidemic fadeout, immunological studies exploring this hypothesis have been missing.
