Isolation of a leptospire
belonging to the serogroup Tarassovi.

sepsis," Anesthesia & Analgesia, vol.
The MAT was performed with a panel of live leptospire
reference cultures obtained from the Royal Tropical Institute (World Health Organization/Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations Collaborating Centre for Reference and Research on Leptospirosis) in Amsterdam (Australis, Autumnalis, Bataviae, Canicola, Celledoni, Grippotyposa, Icterohaemorrhagiae, Javanica, Pomona, Pyrogenes, Hardjoprajitno, Patoc, Tarassovi and Djasiman) and from the IMR (Melaka, Terengganu, Sarawak, Lai, Hardjobovis and Copenhagani).
Several human diseases are due to Leptospire
The experimental infection of calves with a British leptospire
of the Pomona serogroup.
So, in the present study, an IgM-Dot ELISA in a strip form for the detection of leptospire
specific IgM antibodies has been standardized and evaluated.
species determination was successful for 85 (83%) patients and corresponded to 1 of the following 6 pathogenic species: L.
MAT uses whole leptospire
as antigen and detects both lg M and lg G antibodies.
It is included in a group of proteins that has not yet been described in the leptospire
OMP family, and its function is still undetermined (CULLEN et al.
All patients had blood samples collected at the hospital for leptospire
culture and serologic testing; convalescent-phase serum samples were obtained during follow-up for 509 (73%) patients.
Given the importance of these agents in swine reproduction, the goal of this study was to investigate whether PCV2, PPV, and leptospires
were involved in the increasing numbers of fetal mummification in the pig farms of Southern Brazil.
