Isolation and characterization of Clostridium perfringens 'type A' causing blackquarter-like disease of cattle in Manipur

Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 54(11): 1078-1080
Isolation and characterization of Clostridium perfringens 'type A' causing blackquarter-like disease of cattle in Manipur
Samples were collected from 29 cattle (19 living and 10 dead) between 1977 and 1982 in the Manipur Valley. The cattle ranged from less than 1 year to 5-8 years of age and although blackleg was common in all age groups, younger cattle seemed to be the most susceptible. C. perfringens type A was isolated in pure culture (82.75%) or mixed (17.25%) with C. sporogenes from all 29 cases. Identification was based on cultural and biochemical characteristics.
