Summary of "Morphological and molecular diagnosis of Eimeria sp. that caused fatality in a red-necked wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) in Korea."

A red-necked wallaby (Macropus rufogriseus) in the Republic of Korea, introduced from Australia, died in 12 d after exhibiting anorexia and diarrhea. Postmortem examination revealed that the wallaby died due to coccidiosis by Eimeria sp. Morphologically, Eimeria sp. identified closely resembled E. mykytowyczi. The 18S rRNA sequence analysis showed that Eimeria sp. identified in this study has a 98.5% identity with that in Australian red kangaroo (M. rufus). However, owing to insufficient molecular information on marsupial-specific Eimeria, exact species could not be determined. Phylogenetically, Eimeria sp. identified in this study belonged to clade five of the marsupial group.

Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is caused by Andes virus (ANDV) and related hantaviruses in the Americas. Despite a fatality rate of 40%, the pathogenesis of HPS is poorly understood and factors a...

Heat stress reduces Eimeria spp. infection and interferes with C. perfringens infection via activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis.

Heat stress has a relevant effect on animal health and productivity. Stress and environmental changes can contribute to disease development, such as avian necrotic enteritis (NE). The goal of this stu...

Estimates of case-fatality ratios of measles in low-income and middle-income countries: a systematic review and modelling analysis.
