Inflammatory Cytokines and Acute-Phase Proteins in Cows with Pyometramembers
The development of pyometra in cows depends largely on the state of local immunity of the uterus. The objective of the study was to evaluate the concentration of the following proinflammatory cytokines: tumour necrosis factor (TNF-α) and interleukin-6 (IL-6); anti-inflammatory cytokine: interleukin-10 (IL-10); and acute-phase proteins (APPs): haptoglobin (Hp) and serum amyloid A (SAA), in serum and uterine washings in cows with pyometra and healthy animals.

Coagulation status in dogs with Angiostrongylus vasorum infectionmembers
Angiostrongylus vasorum infection is associated with bleeding tendencies in approximately one-third of clinical cases. The cause of the coagulopathy is poorly understood but may be related to disseminated intravascular coagulation. Thromboelastography is a global evaluation of coagulation and has not been described in a cohort of dogs with this disease. This recently online published study evaluates the coagulation status in dogs with naturally Angiostrongylus infections.

Diagnostic imaging in equine dental diseasesmembers
Computed tomography (CT) uses x-ray beams and reconstructive computer technology to create tomographic slices (sections) of the area being imaged. Computed tomography has higher contrast resolution than conventional radiography allowing for more accurate differentiation of soft tissues and fluids. This report compares both techniques. Very informative!

Ultrasound-guided heart biopsies in standing horsesmembers
Endomyocardial biopsies could be a valuable tool in equine cardiology for diagnosing myocardial disease, which is probably underdiagnosed in horses because of lack of specific diagnostic measures and limitations of currently available diagnostic methods. This fascinating prospective study from the University of Ghent describes a technique for serial right atrial and right ventricular endomyocardial biopsy in standing horses using a percutaneous approach through the jugular vein.

Use and effect of hand antiseptics in veterinary practicemembers
Effective use of hand antiseptics is an important and often underestimated topic in daily practice. This paper is based on a final year dissertation for the B.Sc. (Hons.) programme in Veterinary Nursing and Practice Administration at the University of Bristol and assesses use and effect of hand antiseptics in veterinary clinical practice.


Expression of oxytocin receptors and fetal membrane retention in heavy mares members
Fetal membrane retention can be a life-threatening condition and its incidence exceeds 50% in heavy draught mares. Although fetal membrane retention is commonly treated with repeated injections of oxytocin, based on the suggestion that it is caused mainly by secondary atony of the uterus, this treatment sometimes fails. This led us to ask if expression of oxytocin receptors differs in mares that retain fetal membranes due to secondary uterine atony.
This controlled study using archived tissues tried to determine whether expression of oxytocin receptors in equine placental tissues differs when heavy draught mares expel fetal membranes or retain them because of secondary uterine atony.

ELISA Milk Pregnancy Test in Beef Cowsmembers
Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG) are secreted by the binucleate giant cells of the ruminant placenta and enter maternal circulation at the time of placental attachment. The IDEXX Milk Pregnancy Test (IDEXX, Westbrook, ME) detects a subset of PAG in milk. Although designed as a management tool for dairy cows, there is potential for using the milk PAG test in beef cows. The authors´objective was to compare the performance of the milk PAG ELISA with a gold standard method for pregnancy diagnosis and determine the agreement between milk and serum PAG analysis in lactating beef cows.

Diffusion of mepivacaine to adjacent synovial structures after intrasynovial analgesiamembers
Mepivacaine is one of the substances used for diagnostic analgesia and thus for the diagnosis of lameness in horses. Controversy exists about the specificity of diagnostic analgesia of the digital flexor tendon sheath (DFTS) in horses. The objective of this new crossover Experiment was to evaluate the degree of diffusion of mepivacaine from the equine DFTS to adjacent synovial structures.

Lamellar changes in horses with pituitary pars intermedia dysfunctionmembers
Pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID) has become a very popular problem in horses, especially in obese animals, and it is commonly associted with laminitis. But hoof lamellar pathology in affected horses has not been described previously. This new study describes the histomorphometry and pathological lesions in hoof lamellar tissue of animals that had PPID with or without concurrent laminitis, with reference to age-matched controls. We hypothesised that lamellar lesions consistent with laminitis would be associated with PPID, even in animals without current or historical laminitis.
