Effects of protein a in detection of canine distemper virus
through immunosensor construction.
Two of the most important infectious agents associated with raccoons include raccoon roundworm (Baylisascaris procyonis; Kazacos 1982, Kazacos 2001, LoGiudice 2003) and canine distemper virus
(CDV; Roscoe 1993, Mitchell et al.
Detection of canine distemper virus
in 100% of Paget's disease samples by in situreverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction.
Morbillivirus immunohistochemistry was conducted with a murine monoclonal antibody against canine distemper virus
nucleoprotein (VMRD Inc.
Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent assay for evaluation of antibody to canine distemper virus
Recent studies showed that similar amino acid changes could affect virulence and infectivity of different Canine distemper virus
(family Paramyxoviridae, genus Morbillivirus) strains, but such changes are often neutralized by compensatory mutations that preserve the biologic activity of H protein (15).
Accuracy of a point-of-care ELISA test kit for predicting the presence of protective canine parvovirus and canine distemper virus
antibody concentrations in dogs.
Canine parvovirus (a highly contagious virus that can cause severe vomiting and bloody diarrhea; most often seen in puppies between six weeks and six months of age, it is expensive to treat and fatal without treatment); canine distemper virus
(a severe, airborne virus that can cause permanent brain damage, vomiting and diarrhea); canine adenovirus (also called infectious hepatitis, it causes vomiting, diarrhea, severe liver damage and death); and rabies (a virus that causes changes in temperament, inability to swallow, convulsions and death and is transmissible to other animals and humans) are considered core vaccines for dogs.
In the first scientific test in seals of two vaccines for canine distemper virus
(CDV), Dutch scientists have successfully inoculated six of the animals.
Influenza A virus was isolated from a 4-month-old dog co-infected with canine distemper virus
Now a Dutch research group says it has discovered the apparent cause: another virus, canine distemper virus
(CDV) or a close relative.
Immunohistochemistry of brain samples was negative for canine distemper virus
, canine adenovirus, Borna disease virus, Toxoplasma gondii, and Neospora canium (data not shown).
veterinary organizations strongly suggest that dog owners have their animals vaccinated routinely as a means of protecting them against infection by three potentially deadly viruses: canine parvovirus (CPV), canine distemper virus
(CDV) and canine adenovirus (CAV).
Canine distemper virus
(CDV; family Paramyxoviridae, genus Morbillivirus) constitutes one such threat and has caused outbreaks in a diverse range of wild mammals: black-backed jackals (Canis mesomelas) (2); lions (Panthera leo) (3); spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta) (4); fennecs (Vulpes zerda); rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) (5); and aquatic species, including Lake Baikal seals (Phoca sibirica) and Caspian seals (Phoca caspia) (6).
Using PCR-based methods, we excluded the following as causative agent: mink enteritis virus, canine distemper virus
, Aleutian mink disease virus, mink orthoreovirus, and mink coronavirus.
