Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Moraxella (moraxella) Bovis
A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that is most frequently isolated from bovine eyes in cases of infectious keratoconjunctivitis (KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, INFECTIOUS), but also occurs in unaffected eyes and the nasal cavity of cattle.
Infectious diseases of cattle, sheep, and goats, characterized by blepharospasm, lacrimation, conjunctivitis, and varying degrees of corneal opacity and ulceration. In cattle the causative agent is MORAXELLA (MORAXELLA) BOVIS; in sheep, MYCOPLASMA; RICKETTSIA; CHLAMYDIA; or ACHOLEPLASMA; in goats, RICKETTSIA.
A genus of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria occurring as rods (subgenus Moraxella) or cocci (subgenus Branhamella). Its organisms are parasitic on the mucous membranes of humans and other warm-blooded animals.
Moraxella (branhamella) Catarrhalis
Gram-negative aerobic cocci of low virulence that colonize the nasopharynx and occasionally cause MENINGITIS; BACTEREMIA; EMPYEMA; PERICARDITIS; and PNEUMONIA.
The bovine variety of the tubercle bacillus. It is called also Mycobacterium tuberculosis var. bovis.
Randomized controlled field trial to assess efficacy of a Moraxella bovis pilin-cytotoxin-Moraxella bovoculi cytotoxin subunit vaccine to prevent naturally occurring infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis.
Objective-To evaluate efficacy of a recombinant Moraxella bovis pilin-cytotoxin-Moraxella bovoculi cytotoxin subunit vaccine to prevent naturally occurring infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis (IBK)...
The novel pentasaccharide [p-(trifluoroacetamido)phenyl]ethyl 3-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl-4-O-β-d-glucopyranosyl-6-O-[2-O-(α-d-glucopyranosyl)-β-d-glucopyranosyl]-α-d-glucopyranoside (1), which includ...
Bacteria of the genus Moraxella have been isolated from a variety of mammalian hosts. In a prior survey of bacteria that colonize the rhesus macaque nasopharynx, performed at the Tulane National Prima...
We report a case of septicemia with prolonged, refractory hypotension due to Moraxella osloensis isolated in a non-immunocompromised pediatric patient.
A number of microorganisms are capable of binding immunoglobulins (Igs) in a manner, which excludes binding to conventional antigen binding sites. Interaction of such bacterial proteins with surface i...
This study is to observe the carriage rate ofStreptococcus pneumoniae (S.p.), Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and Moraxella catarrhalis （M.Cat） in healthy Chinese children aged 12-...
To assess the immunogenicity of M. bovis BCG (SSI strain), given intrademally in the standard dose used in clinical practice and to measure the development of the immune response in the fi...
To investigate the genetics and epidemiology of fasting and postprandial lipid, lipoprotein, and apolipoprotein levels.
To study the epidemiology of aortic calcium.
The overall goal of this project is to elucidate the epidemiology of MRSA transmission in the community and test an intervention to prevent MRSA transmission in this setting.
