The association of Equine Parvovirus-Hepatitis (EqPV-H) with cases of non-biologic-associated Theiler’s disease on a farm in Ontario, Canada

Publication date: Available online 2 January 2020Source: Veterinary MicrobiologyAuthor(s): John Baird, Birthe Tegtmeyer, Luis Arroyo, Alexander Stang, Yannick Brüggemann, Murray Hazlett, Eike SteinmannAbstractTheiler’s disease was confirmed within a group horses located on a farm in southwestern Ontario during the summer and autumn of 2005. Five sudden deaths occurred between 3 July and 21 August, 2005, none of which were necropsied, however two of the horses showed clinical signs compatible with hepatic encephalopathy prior to death. No horse on the farm had received a biologic product of equine blood origin in the preceding six months. The only biologics used on the property were the administration of killed vaccines for rabies, tetanus and West Nile Virus to all horses 30 days prior to the onset of the first sudden death. Between 22 August, 2005 and 21 October, 2005, a further four horses died suddenly or were euthanized with all having a confirmed histopathologic diagnosis of acute hepatic necrosis. Serum was collected from all horses on the farm on 30 September, 2005 and this was repeated on 29 October, 2005. Equine parvovirus-hepatitis (EqPV-H) DNA was detected by quantitative-PCR in the serum of 61.8% (34/55) of the horses on the farm on either one or both sampling dates with viral loads ranging from

West Nile Virus (WNV) infection is the most common mosquito-borne illness in the United States. Most cases are asymptomatic or with mild symptoms. Older adults are more likely to have central nervous system (CNS) involvement, and a higher risk for mortality.

Background Streptococcus pneumonia is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in adults who are immunocompromised and of advanced age. It is the standard of care to vaccinate all high-risk adults (18-64 years) and adults 65 years and older with 2 pneumococcal vaccines. However, pneumococcal immunization rates remain below the HealthyPeople2020 target goal of 90% nationally and locally.

ConclusionExternal supports and individual medication management strategies were important in supporting medication adherence in this patient group. Perceived need for mobile technology, in addition to existing supports for adherence, was not high. Challenges accessing and maintaining consistent mobile technology and individual preferences should be considered when developing mobile technology ‐based interventions.

Experimental Models of Tauopathy - From Mechanisms to Therapies. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2019;1184:381-391 Authors: Götz JJ, Götz J Abstract Animal models have been instrumental in reproducing key aspects of human tauopathy. In pursuing these efforts, the mouse continues to have a prominent role. In this chapter, we focus on models that overexpress wild-type or mutant forms of tau, the latter being based on mutations found in familial cases of frontotemporal dementia. We review some of these models in more detail and discuss what they have revealed about the underlying pathomechanisms, as well...
