Background: Measurement of CSF albumin aids diagnosis in human medicine but technical difficulties related to its low CSF concentration prohibit its routine use in veterinary medicine. High-resolution electrophoresis (HRE) has been described but often results in non-interpretable integration profiles preventing albumin determination. Fraction quantification using HRE may be more precise after concentration (cHRE) using a membrane microconcentrator technique but has not been evaluated in CSF with total protein levels below 20mg/dL. Immunoturbidimetry is routinely used for human CSF albumin measurement and was recently applied on canine samples with encouraging results. Objective: The purpose of this study was to compare HRE (including the use of a concentration step) and immunoturbidimetric assay for the measurement of albumin levels in normal canine CSF. Methods: 30 CSF specimens from 15 healthy dogs were evaluated. CSF total protein was measured by the pyrogallol red methoda and CSF albumin was determined by HREb (n=15), cHREc (n=30) and immunoturbidimetric assayd (n=30). Validation of the human immunoturbidimetric assay was performed using a purified canine albumin standarde. Results: Mean CSF total protein was 17.5 (range 7-39) mg/dL. HRE integration profiles were non-interpretable in all unconcentrated specimens. However, clear distinction of the major protein fractions was achieved for all cHRE specimens. CSF albumin levels were measureable in 29/30 specimens using immunoturbidimetry. Excellent correlation (Pearson r=0.92, p<0.001) was found between the two techniques. Conclusion: Immunoturbidimetry and cHRE may be used for routine measurement of CSF albumin. [less ▲]

Cyprinid herpesvirus 3 (CyHV-3), also known as Koi herpesvirus, is the etiological agent of a mortal disease in common and koi carp. Recently, we investigated the entry of CyHV-3 in carp using bioluminescence imaging and a CyHV-3 recombinant strain expressing luciferase (LUC). We demonstrated that the skin is the major portal of entry after inoculation of carp by immersion in water containing CyHV-3. While this model of infection mimics some natural conditions in which infection takes place, other epidemiological conditions could favour entry of virus through the digestive tract. Here, we investigated whether ingestion of infectious materials mediates CyHV-3 entry through the digestive tract. Carp were fed with materials contaminated with the CyHV-3 LUC recombinant (oral contamination) or immersed in water containing the virus (contamination by immersion). Bioluminescence imaging analyses performed at different times post-infection led to the following observations: (i) the pharyngeal periodontal mucosa is the major portal of entry after oral contamination, while the skin is the major portal of entry after contamination by immersion. (ii) Both modes of inoculation led to the spreading of the infection to the various organs tested. However, the timing and the sequence in which some of the organs turned positive were different between the two modes of inoculation. Finally, we compared the disease induced by the two inoculation modes. They led to comparable clinical signs and mortality rate. The results of the present study suggest that, based on epidemiological conditions, CyHV-3 can enter carp either by skin or periodontal pharyngeal mucosal infection. [less ▲]

The pathogenesis of canine sino-nasal aspergillosis (SNA) and lymphoplasmacytic rhinitis (LPR) remains poorly understood. The innate immune system is implicated in the etiology of human chronic rhinosinusitis. Therefore, we hypothesized that dysfunction in innate immunity could be implicated in the pathogenesis of SNA and LPR. Expression of messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding Toll-like receptors (TLRs) 1 to 10 and NOD-like receptors (NODs) 1 and 2 in nasal mucosal biopsies from SNA or LPR dogs was compared with mucosa from healthy controls. Gene expression was quantified using quantitative real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction normalized against multiple housekeeper genes. All TLR and NOD genes were quantified in all samples. SNA was associated with significantly increased expression of TLRs 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10; and NOD2, relative to controls. LPR was associated with significantly increased expression of TLRs 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8, relative to controls. There was significantly more expression of TLRs 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and NOD2 in SNA dogs than in LPR dogs. The significance of these differences in the pathogenesis of these diseases is yet to be determined. [less ▲]
