- ... Infections of sheep with the gastrointestinal nematode Teladorsagia circumcincta are characterised by increased concentrations of IgA, eosinophilia and mastocytosis but the interactions between these immune responses are unclear. We investigated the kinetics of the parasite-specific IgA and eosinophil responses in controlled infections in lambs to determine if there were any associations with subs ...

- ... Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) is a natural infection of domestic cats, which produces a disease with many similarities to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in man. The virus is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in pet cats worldwide. As such an effective vaccine is desirable both for its use in veterinary medicine and also as a model for the development of an HIV vacci ...
