Bovine Endocarditis Associated with Mycoplasma bovis

Publication date: August 2019Source: Journal of Comparative Pathology, Volume 171Author(s): T. Kanda, S. Tanaka, M. Suwanruengsri, E. Sukmawinata, R. Uemura, R. Yamaguchi, M. SueyoshiSummaryMycoplasma bovis is a microorganism associated with pneumonia, mastitis, arthritis and otitis media of cattle; however, there are no reports of this organism causing bovine endocarditis. Five adult cattle with endocarditis characterized by caseated lesions (diameter 5–12 cm) of the endocardial surface of the left atrium, but without lesions in heart valves or affecting the right side of the heart, were identified in slaughterhouses in Japan. M. bovis was successfully isolated from the lesions and M. bovis antigen was detected immunohistochemically within the lesions. The results suggest that the lesions may have been associated with M. bovis alone. To our knowledge, this is the first demonstration of bovine endocarditis associated with M. bovis.

This study compares the performances of three SF PPP models, namely the GRoup and PHase Ionospheric Correction (GRAPHIC) model, GRAPHIC with code observation model, and an ionosphere-constrained model, and evaluated the contribution of the QZSS to the SF PPP of GPS/BDS/GLONASS/Galileo systems. Moreover, the influence of code bias on the SF PPP of the BDS system is also analyzed. A two-week dataset (DOY 013–026, 2019) from 10 stations of the MGEX network is selected for validation, and the results show that: (1) For cut-off elevation angles of 15, 20, and 25°, the convergence times for the static SF PPP of GLONASS...

Nakayama, the Japan Environment and Children’s Study (JECS) GroupAbstractCongenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT) include a broad group of birth defects. Exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) is suspected to be one of the risk factors for CAKUT, and the use of personal care products (PCPs) is a source of EDC exposure. Therefore, this study aimed to inves...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewReduction of serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) levels by statins, ezetimibe and proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) inhibitors has been shown to significantly reduce cardiovascular events risk. However, fasting and postprandial hypertriglyceridemia as well as reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) remain as residual risk factors of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases (ASCVD). To treat patients with hypertriglyceridemia and/or low HDL-C, drugs such as fibrates, nicotinic acids, and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have been used. However, fibrates w...
