Antibodies in Danish Cattle Against Myxovirus Para-Influenza Type 3 (Strain Ko-23)

Gegen das Myxovirus Parainfluenza Typ 3 (Stamm KO-23) gerichtete Antikörper bei dänischen Bindern

Antistof mod myxovirus para-influenza type 3 hos kvæg i Danmark

Summary

Eighty paired sera from cattle with present or previous experiences with the mucosal disease complex were studied for antibodies against PI-3 virus. Ten animals with a significant increase in antibodies during the course of the disease were divided into two groups: one resembling mucosal disease, the other virus diarrhea. The question of dual infection or common partial antigens between the viruses is discussed.

Zusammenfassung

Von 80 Rindern wurden doppelte Serumproben entnommen, die auf Gehalt an virusneutralisierenden Antistoffen gegen Parainfluenza Typ 3 (Stamm KO-23) untersucht wurden. Bei 10 Tieren fand sich eine Titersteigerung in zwei Gruppen; die eine Gruppe gleicht mucal disease und die andere kann mit Virusdiarrhöe bezeichnet werden. Das Problem einer doppelten Infektion gegen gemeinsame Antigene bei Virus innerhalb des mucal disease-Komplexes wird diskutiert.

Resumé

Fra 80 kreaturer er der udtaget parrede serumprøver, der er undersøgt for indhold af virus neutraliserende antistoffer mod parainfluenza virus type 3 (stamme KO-23). Hos 10 dyr er fundet en titerstigning. Disse 10 dyr kan klinisk inddeles i to grupper: én der ligner mucosal disease og en anden der må betegnes som virus diarrhoe. Spørgsmålet om dobbelt infektion contra fælles antigener hos virus inden for mucosal disease komplexet diskuteres.
