Prevalence and management factors contributing to Cryptosporidium and Giardia infection in pre-weaned and post-weaned calves in Johor, Malaysia Muhid, Aida (2009) Prevalence and management factors contributing to Cryptosporidium and Giardia infection in pre-weaned and post-weaned calves in Johor, Malaysia. Masters by Research thesis, Murdoch University. The present study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in pre-weaned and post-weaned dairy calves and to identify management factors contributing to infection with these parasites. The role of dairy calves as a source of environmental contamination and identification of the potential risk factors contributing to the prevalence of the organism in farms was also investigated. A total of 240 animal faecal samples were collected from 16 farms in Johor, which is in the southern part of Peninsular Malaysia. PCR amplification detected 65 Cryptosporidium positives giving a total prevalence of 27.1% (95% CI: 21.5%, 32.7). PCR amplification detected 30 Giardia positives giving a total prevalence of 12.5% (95% CI: 8.3%, 16.7%).

Le droit des animaux est au cœur des débats des législateurs et des défenseurs des animaux dans de nombreuses grandes villes européennes. Girone, en Calatalogne, au nord-est de l'Espagne, a été la première à mettre noir sur blanc ces droits. Des projets de loi assurant un droit aux animaux sont en gestation un peu partout en Europe. En Suisse, les animaux ne seront plus traités comme des objets et bénéficient désormais d'un droit de protection qui devrait pousser à la réflexion plus d'un maître avant de se lancer dans l'aventure de l'adoption ou de l'acquisition d'un animal. Balade toutes les 6 heures ou 100 euros d'amende ! En Espagne, plus précisément dans la ville de Girona, les chiens ont vu leur condition s'améliorer. Cet arrêté pris le 14 avril 2009 fait suite au règlement des problèmes de voisinage et vise à instaurer un modus vivendi plus agréable entre possesseurs et non possesseurs de chien.

CDC EID AOUT 2006 Au sommaire: New World Hantavirus in Humans, French Guiana, S. Matheus et al. Heartland virus (HRTV) is a recently described phlebovirus initially isolated in 2009 from 2 humans who had leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. Serologic assessment of domestic and wild animal populations near the residence of 1 of these persons showed high exposure rates to raccoons, white-tailed deer, and horses. To our knowledge, no laboratory-based assessments of viremic potential of animals infected with HRTV have been performed. We experimentally inoculated several vertebrates (raccoons, goats, chickens, rabbits, hamsters, C57BL/6 mice, and interferon-α/β/γ receptor–deficient [Ag129]) mice with this virus. All animals showed immune responses against HRTV after primary or secondary exposure. However, neutralizing antibody responses were limited.

REVISTA BRASILEIRA DE PARASITOLOGIA VETERINARIA; v. 20, n. 4, p. 269-273, OCT-DEC 2011. Detection of Cryptosporidium parvum oocy (Reference retrieved automatically from Web of Science through information on FAPESP grant and its corresponding number as mentioned in the publication by the authors.) AbstractThe aim of this study was to produce a conjugate containing anti-Cryptosporidium parvum polyclonal antibodies and standardize a Direct Immunofluorescence Assay (DIE) for detecting C parvum oocysts in fecal samples from calves. In order to obtain anti-C parvum polyclonal antibodies, two New Zealand rabbits were immunized with a purified solution of C. parvum oocysts and Freund's adjuvant. Purification of the immunoglobulin G (IgG) fraction was performed by means of precipitation in ammonium sulfate and chromatography using a DEAE-cellulose column.

GMO FREE EUROPE 09/02/10 Bt brinjal approval key to progress in Indian GM rice trials Mahyco in bio-safety research stage. M.R. Subramani Chennai, Feb. 7 The Government's decision whether to allow or not allow commercial cultivation of Bt brinjal holds the key for further trials in genetically modified (GM) rice. “Bt brinjal is the first product that has come up for approval. “At least, 25 separate trials are being held in GM rice. As the Government is holding public hearings on permitting commercial cultivation of Bt brinjal, the Genetic Engineering Approval Committee (GEAC) has put on hold permission for trials of genetically modified cereals, including corn. Among the firms that are into GM rice trials are Bayer Bioscience, Avesthagen and Mahyco. Years of trials According to GEAC's December 9 meeting note, Maharashtra Hybrid Seeds Company (Mahyco) has completed three years of multi-location field trials since 2005 with cry1AC gene that is being used in Bt cotton and Bt brinjal. The Review Committee on Genetic Manipulation has to be satisfied with the package first.

PLANETE ANIMAUX 11/10/14 Débat : l’animal, un meuble comme les autres ? Un débat très intéressant a eu lieu jeudi 9 octobre à Paris, en présence notamment de la députée Laurence Abeille et de Brigitte Gothière (L214). Le sujet abordé était celui de la place de l’animal dans notre société, selon que ce dernier soit de compagnie ou dédié à la consommation humaine. Les conditions d’élevage des animaux en France ont particulièrement été discutées, et des arguments très pertinents ont été énoncés. Le rendez-vous était donné dans un amphithéâtre d’AgroParisTech (établissement d’enseignement supérieur spécialiste des sciences et des industries du vivant et de l’environnement, formant entre autres les éleveurs de demain). Pourquoi opposer l’animal à l’humain ? Laurence Abeille Laurence Abeille prend, la première, la parole. Jean-Pierre Digard répond que dans cette problématique du droit des animaux, « on voit le point de vue des bêtes mais on oublie l’Homme ». Domestication : échange ou asservissement ?

PLOS 10/04/12 Epidemiology and Molecular Relationships of Cryptosporidium spp. in People, Primates, and Livestock from Western U Abstract Background Cryptosporidium is one of the most common parasitic diarrheal agents in the world and is a known zoonosis. Methodology/Principal Findings Diagnostic PCR revealed a prevalence of Cryptosporidium of 32.4% in humans, 11.1% in non-human primates, and 2.2% in livestock. Conclusions/Significance Cryptosporidium may be transmitted frequently among species in western Uganda where people, livestock, and wildlife interact intensively as a result of anthropogenic changes to forests, but the parasite may undergo more host-specific transmission where such interactions do not occur. Author Summary Cryptosporidium is a common gastrointestinal parasite known for its zoonotic potential.

CHINA GLOBAL TIMES 26/03/10 Court rejects lawsuit over GM rice: lawyer By An Baijie A Beijing lawyer's request to sue the Ministry of Agriculture, in order to force it to release scientific data about genetically modified (GM) rice, was rejected by a local court. Wei Rujiu, 40, head of the Beijing Weirujiu Law Firm, told the Global Times Tuesday that he tried to file papers with Beijing No. 2 Intermediate People's Court on March 17 but the court turned him away. He attempted to collect data about the experiments that were done to show GM rice would be safe for consumers. A court official surnamed Jiang confirmed Thursday to the Global Times that intermediate courts are not obligated to accept such lawsuits because the lawyer did not prove a direct relationship with the ministry. He suggested the lawyer apply to other relevant government departments for a solution, Jiang said, without naming the departments. Wei said although he didn't have any direct relations with the ministry, GM rice poses potential harm to his health. The issue has divided the public.

AFP 30/10/14 Assemblée nationale Les animaux reconnus comme des « êtres vivants doués de sensibilité » Paris, 30 oct 2014 (AFP) - L'Assemblée nationale a adopté jeudi soir une disposition, déjà votée par les députés en avril, qui reconnaît aux animaux la qualité symbolique « d'êtres vivants doués de sensibilité », rejetant les amendements écologistes pour aller plus loin ou Ump pour restreindre sa portée. Au terme d'un débat animé mais moins vif que lors du premier passage dans l'hémicycle, les députés ont voté l'article alignant le code civil, qui considère les animaux comme « des biens meubles », sur les codes pénal et rural qui les reconnaissent déjà comme « des êtres vivants et sensibles ». « Sous réserve des lois qui les protègent, les animaux sont soumis au régime des biens corporels », est-il aussi écrit. L'Assemblée avait initialement introduit un amendement en ce sens porté par le député PS des Hautes-Pyrénées Jean Glavany dans le projet de loi de modernisation et de simplification du droit, ensemble de mesures juridiques très diverses qu'avait déjà voté le Sénat.
