Vasileiou, M. de las HerasABSTRACTVaccination programs against Ovine Respiratory Complex (ORC) in lambs should be accompanied by non-specific preventive measure, e.g., establishment of proper management and husbandry conditions. Implementing a vaccination plan against ORC requires: involvement of all farm staff, recording data, a positive cost:benefit analysis and continuous monitoring over time. Licensed vaccines for sheep are only against Mannheimia haemoly...

WilsonAbstractLawsonia intracellularis is an obligate intracellular microorganism and the causative agent of porcine proliferative enteropathy. Due to its obligate intracellular nature, characterization of antigens and proteins involved in host-pathogen interaction and immune recognition have been difficult to achieve using conventional microbiological techniques. In this work, we used 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis coupled with Western-immuno...

With the continued failure of clinical trials of therapies for Alzheimer's disease, largely immunotherapies, that aim to clear amyloid-β, a growing faction of researchers are rejecting the amyloid hypothesis. In that mainstream view of the condition, the accumulation of amyloid-β causes the early stages of Alzheimer's, but in addition to disrupting the function of neurons, it also causes immune cells in the brain to become inflammatory, dysfunctional, and senescent. This in turn sets the stage for the aggregation of tau protein into neurofibrillary tangles, which causes widespread cell death and the much more sev...
