The imunopathogenesis of equine infectious anemia
Chapters address lentivirus tropism and disease, macrophages in HIV-1 infection, intracellular mechanisms for lentiviral restriction, simian-HIV and simian immunodeficiency virus models of HIV disease, host and viral determinants of feline immunodeficiency virus cell tropism and pathogenicity, equine infectious anemia
virus and its pathogenesis, the bovine lentivirus infections, and lentivirus coinfections and superinfections, among other topics.
Diagnostics capabilities include serology (eg, equine infectious anemia
, brucellosis, toxoplasmosis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, and babesiosis); rabies testing (suspect animals involved with human exposure, rabies serology of animals destined for international movement); and infectious disease surveys (eg, leptospirosis).
