Histopathological investigations in goats seropositive to caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus infection

Histopathological investigations in goats seropositive to caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus infection

The lungs, lymph nodes, synovial membrane, mammary gland and central nervous system (CNS) collected from six 3-5 year old goats seropositive, by agar gel immunodiffusion, to the caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV) were macro- and microscopically examined. Histopathology showed lymphocytic interstitial pneumonia, hyperplastic lymphoreticulitis, proliferative lymphomacrophagic synovitis, and incipient interacinar and periductal fibrous proliferation in the mammary gland.

Goats seropositive (n=4) and seronegative (n=4) for caprine arthritis encephalitis virus (CAEV) were used for embryo production. Fluorogestone acetate (45 mg) sponges were placed intravaginally and left for 11 days. The goats received 50 mg of clo...

Twelve attempts were made to isolate caprine arthritis-encephalitis virus (CAEV) from the uterine flushings of serologically positive superovulated does mated to serologically positive bucks. Embryos were transferred to eight serologically negativ...

Bone-marrow samples were collected from 48 CAEV-seropositive, symptomless goats (30 kids, 18 adults). The samples were formalin-fixed and processed for histological examination. In addition, all samples were examined immunohistochemically with a m...
