Experimental pigeon paramyxovirus-1 infection in chicken: evaluation of infectivity, clinical and pathological manifestations and diagnostic methods.

Linda Hüppi, Nicolas Ruggli, Sylvie Python, Richard Hoop, Sarah Albini, Christian Grund, Andrea Vögtlin,

Several pigeon paramyxovirus-1 (PPMV-1) outbreaks in feral pigeons were described recently in Switzerland. The potential of PPMV-1 to induce the notifiable Newcastle disease in chickens is discussed controversially. Therefore, in order to study epidemiologically relevant parameters such as the kinetics of PPMV-1 replication and shedding as well as seroconversion after ... Read more >>

Survey on Chlamydiaceae in cloacal swabs from Swiss turkeys demonstrates absence of Chlamydia psittaci and low occurrence of Chlamydia gallinacean.

Barbara Renate Vogler, Michal Trinkler, Hanna Marti, Nicole Borel, Theresa Pesch, Barbara Prähauser, Richard Hoop, Prisca Mattmann, Sarah Albini,

In Switzerland, domestic turkey meat is a niche product. Turkeys are fattened on mixed family-based farms scattered across the country, with most providing access to an uncovered outdoor pasture for the birds. Swiss fattening turkeys may therefore get infected with Chlamydiaceae via wild birds or their faeces, potentially shedding these ... Read more >>

Antimicrobial resistant and extended-spectrum β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli in common wild bird species in Switzerland.

Katrin Zurfluh, Sarah Albini, Prisca Mattmann, Patrick Kindle, Magdalena Nüesch-Inderbinen, Roger Stephan, Barbara R Vogler,

A total of 294 fecal swabs from 294 wild birds in Switzerland were cultivated for antimicrobial resistant (AMR) Escherichia coli. Samples were also subcultivated to detect E. coli with extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL), carbapenemases, and plasmid-mediated aminoglycoside or colistin resistance, respectively. Samples from 17 (5.8%) of the birds contained 19 AMR E. coli, ... Read more >>

Resource-Effective Serosurveillance for the Detection of West Nile Virus in Switzerland Using Abattoir Samples of Free-Range Laying Hens.

Barbara R Vogler, Sonja Hartnack, Ute Ziegler, Davide Lelli, Andrea Vögtlin, Richard Hoop, Sarah Albini,

West Nile virus (WNV) is an important zoonotic pathogen maintained in a natural transmission cycle between mosquitoes and birds as reservoir hosts. In dead-end hosts, such as humans, infection may result in fatal neurologic disease translating into disease and death-related suffering and increased health care costs. In humans, WNV may ...

Peripheral nerve sheath tumor in a subadult golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos).

Morena Bernadette Wernick, Matthias Dennler, Kathrin Beckmann, Martina Schybli, Sarah Albini, Richard K Hoop, Frank Steffen, Patrick Kircher, Jean-Michel Hatt,

A 5-year-old, female golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos) was admitted with tetraplegia that progressed to a nonambulatory, spastic tetraparesis after a few days of treatment. Clinical and radiologic examinations, including radiography, computed tomography scan, and myelography, were indicative of neoplasia involving a spinal nerve root. Postmortem magnetic resonance imaging and necropsy ... Read more >>

Epizootiologic investigations of selected abortive agents in free-ranging Alpine ibex (Capra ibex ibex) in Switzerland.

Nelson Marreros, Daniela Hüssy, Sarah Albini, Caroline F Frey, Carlos Abril, Hans-Rudolf Vogt, Nathalie Holzwarth, Sophie Wirz-Dittus, Martina Friess, Monika Engels, Nicole Borel, Christian S Willisch, Claudio Signer, Ludwig E Hoelzle, Marie-Pierre Ryser-Degiorgis,

In the early 2000s, several colonies of Alpine ibex (Capra ibex ibex) in Switzerland ceased growing or began to decrease. Reproductive problems due to infections with abortive agents might have negatively affected recruitment. We assessed the presence of selected agents of abortion in Alpine ibex by serologic, molecular, and culture ... Read more >>

Development and validation of a Myxoma virus real-time polymerase chain reaction assay.

Sarah Albini, Brigitte Sigrist, Regula Güttinger, Claude Schelling, Richard K Hoop, Andrea Vögtlin,

To aid in the rapid diagnosis of myxomatosis in rabbits, a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the specific detection of Myxoma virus is described. Primers and probe were designed to amplify a 147-bp fragment within the Serp2 gene. The assay was able to detect 23 copies of a synthesized ... Read more >>

Both viral and host factors contribute to neurovirulence of bovine herpesviruses 1 and 5 in interferon receptor-deficient mice.

Carlos Abril, Monika Engels, Anne Liman, Monika Hilbe, Sarah Albini, Marco Franchini, Mark Suter, Mathias Ackermann,

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and bovine herpesviruses 1 and 5 (BHV-1 and BHV-5) can use the same cellular receptor for entry, but only HSV is known to cause disease in mice. We hypothesized that components of either the innate or the adaptive immune system, or a combination of ... Read more >>

Innate immune responses of calves during transient infection with a noncytopathic strain of bovine viral diarrhea virus.

Doris Müller-Doblies, Adrian Arquint, Patrick Schaller, Peter M H Heegaard, Monika Hilbe, Sarah Albini, Carlos Abril, Kurt Tobler, Felix Ehrensperger, Ernst Peterhans, Mathias Ackermann, Alfred Metzler,

In this study, six immunocompetent calves were experimentally infected with a noncytopathic strain of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), and the effects of the viral infection on parameters of the innate immune response of the host were analyzed. Clinical and virological data were compared with the temporal activation of the ... Read more >>

Identification and quantification of ovine gammaherpesvirus 2 DNA in fresh and stored tissues of pigs with symptoms of porcine malignant catarrhal fever.

Sarah Albini, Werner Zimmermann, Felix Neff, Bernhard Ehlers, Hansjürg Häni, Hong Li, Daniela Hüssy, Monika Engels, Mathias Ackermann,

Cases of porcine malignant catarrhal fever were analyzed by a combination of identification and quantitation of ovine gammaherpesvirus 2 DNA in a variety of paraffin-embedded tissues from diseased pigs, serology, and exclusion of primary porcine gammaherpesviruses. In spite of reduced signal due to fixation and paraffin embedding, ovine gammaherpesvirus 2 ... Read more >>

Analysis of the pathogenetic basis for shedding and transmission of ovine gamma herpesvirus 2.

Daniela Hüssy, Fredi Janett, Sarah Albini, Norbert Stäuber, Rico Thun, Mathias Ackermann,

Ovine herpesvirus 2 (OvHV-2), a member of the viral subfamily Gammaherpesvirinae, shares numerous similarities with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8). Both viruses are apathogenic in their healthy original host, may cause lymphoprolipherative diseases, cannot routinely be propagated in cell culture, and may be sexually transmitted. However, the pathways of sexual transmission ... Read more >>
