The most appropriate treatment and the patient's chance of recovery depend on the virus involved and the severity of the inflammation. In acute encephalitis, the infection directly affects the. Among scientists, there exist mixed opinions whether equine influenza viruses infect man. In this report, we summarize a systematic and comprehensive review of the English, Chinese, and Mongolian scientific literature regarding evidence for equine influenza virus infections in man. Searches of PubMed, Web of Knowledge, ProQuest, CNKI, Chongqing VIP Database, Wanfang Data and . EEEV infection is thought to confer life-long immunity against re-infection. It does not confer significant cross-immunity against other alphaviruses (e.g., western equine encephalitis virus), and it confers no cross-immunity against flaviviruses (e.g., West Nile virus) or bunyaviruses (e.g., La Crosse virus).   Natural infection by VACV in horses was reported in Brazil, yet it seems to be a rare event (BRUM et al., ; MATOS et al., ). VACV is the etiological agent of bovine vaccinia, a zoonotic and emerging disease with great importance in dairy cattle and public health in some Brazilian regions (TRINDADE et al., ; KROON et al., ; SANT.

News, author interviews, critics' picks and more. Infectious diseases such as EHV-1 are best dealt with by having a strong immune system in the horse to fight the virus. However, not every horse has a strong immune system, and many horses have quite a bit of stress in their life. This suppresses the immune system. Horses on a show circuit traveling frequently are often very susceptible and may.

The series Virus Infections of Vertebrates is intended to supplement the plethora of monographs devoted to individual viruses.

It was the editors' aim to present a "zoocentric" approach instead of the "virocentric" course most authors follow. This sixth volume in the series provides an up-to-date overview of the main viruses affecting equines.

Part of the "Virus Infections of Vertebrates" series that is intended to supplement the plethora of monographs devoted to individual viruses, this volume provides an overview of the main viruses At the beginning of each chapter, a short family description discussing infections caused by viruses.

Local horse owners are concerned over a virus type infection that is affecting the equine population in Williams. A Flagstaff veterinarian says it is similar to the common cold found in humans. Approximately 75% of the equines infected with the hendra virus succumb to it within 48 hours, and somewhere around half of the humans infected will meet the same fate.

Hendra virus is a rare but deadly virus in Australia, spread by flying fox bats to horses. Infected equines can transmit the virus to other horses, or to humans.

Organized by infectious agent — virus, bacterial and rickettsial, protazoal, and fungal — it includes complete coverage of the individual diseases caused by each type of agent. A section on clinical problems examines conditions such as ocular infections, CNS infections, and skin infections.

EEE virus is a rare cause of brain Virus infections of equines book (encephalitis). Only a few cases are reported in the United States each year. Most occur in eastern or Gulf Coast states. Approximately 30% of people with EEE die and many survivors have ongoing neurologic problems.

Equine Herpesvirus (EHV)/Rhinopneumonitis. With recent outbrea ks of EHV inmost horse owners are somewhat aware of the dangers of this highly contageious virus. EHV is characterized by respiratory infections, paralysis, abortions, inflammation of the spinal cord, and occasionally death in young horses.

Viral infection of the small intestine (viral enteritis) in horses normally affects only the superficial layers of the small intestinal mucosa, particularly the enterocytes of the absorptive villi.

Clinical symptoms of viral enteritis tend to be mild and transitory, and commonly include lethargy, anorexia, and fever. Equine flu or equine influenza is a viral disease of horses characterized by severe nasal discharge, coughing, difficulty in breathing, and caused by Equine Influenza Virus Type-A (H7N7) and Type-B(H3N8).

The disease is contagious and occurs worldwide. Most of the cases, the disease spread from the direct contact of infected horses in equestrian sports. Select from our A to Z list to read all about a disease or condition in one comprehensive overview. Find your topic by first letter.

Cushing’s syndrome occurs when the pituitary gland, which helps control the production of critical hormones in the body, produces too much cortisol, causing such. Equine influenza (horse flu) is the disease caused by strains of influenza A that are enzootic in horse species.

Equine influenza occurs globally, previously caused by two main strains of virus: equine-1 and equine-2 ().The OIE now considers H7N7 strains likely to be extinct since these strains have not been isolated for over 20 years.

Predominant international circulating H3N8 strains are. (1) Background: Equine hepacivirus (EqHV), also referred to as non-primate hepacivirus (NPHV), infects horses—and dogs in some instances—and is closely related to hepatitis C virus (HCV) that has infected up to 3% of the world’s human population, causing an epidemic of liver cirrhosis and cancer.

Similar infection of pancreatic islet cells has been described in goats infected with foot-and-mouth disease virus. Equine rhinitis B virus (formerly equine rhinovirus 2) is the sole member and type species (designated erbovirus A) of the genus Erbovirus, with three recognized serotypes (designated as equine rhinitis B viruses 1, 2, and 3) that.

However, it should be remembered that these viruses cannot be spread from one horse to another and that an infected mosquito is required to cause infection in a horse. Mosquitoes do not become infected with WNV by biting horses because horses do not produce enough virus.

Equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) remains one of the most common viral pathogens affecting horses worldwide presenting as a persistent infection which can establish latency in nerve ganglia (trigeminal ganglion), lymphoid tissues of the respiratory tract and peripheral blood lymphocytes.

EHV-1 infection induces both humoral and cellular immune responses in horses. In addition, co-infection with EHV-5 is common not only in ocular disease, but also in respiratory cases, making it difficult to attribute causation of disease to a particular virus.
