Field and laboratory observations suggest that Schmallenberg virus was circulating in Belgium during the summer 2012 despite a very high herd immunity. Further studies will be conducted to determine whether we are observing the last cases of this epizootic or if the above calves announce a transition to endemicity. [less ▲]

In the summer-fall of 2011, a nonspecific febrile syndrome characterized by hyperthermia, drop in milk production and watery diarrhea was reported in adult dairy cows from a series of farms located in North-West Europe. Further, in November 2011, an enzootic outbreak of abortion, stillbirth and birth at term of lambs, kids and calves with neurologic signs and/or head, spine or limb malformations emerged throughout several European countries. Both syndromes were associated with the presence in the blood (adults) or in the central nervous system (newborns) of the genome of a new Shamonda-like orthobunyavirus provisionally named Schmallenberg virus after the place where the first positive samples were collected. The clinical, pathological, virological and epidemiological facts that were made publicly available during the first 6 months after the emergence are presented here. Current knowledge of the epidemiology of the phylogenetically closest relatives of the newcomer (Shamonda, Aino and Akabane viruses) is not exhaustive enough to predict whether the current outbreak of Schmallenberg virus is the prelude to endemicity or to a 2 years long outbreak before the infection burns out when serologically naïve animals are no longer available. In the future, cyclic epizootic reemergences are a possibility too, either synchronized with a global decrease of herd immunity or due to antigenic variants escaping the immunity acquired against their predecessors. The latter hypothesis seems unlikely because of the wide array of biologic constraints acting on the genome of viruses whose life cycle requires transmission by a vector, which represses genetic drift. The remarkable stability of the Shamonda virus genome over the last forty years is reassuring in this regard. [less ▲]

For several decades, the bovine was subject to various hemorrhagic syndromes which causes have historically been found. Since the mid-2000s, a new hemorrhagic syndrome seems to emerge with a significant epidemiological consistency, suggesting a common etiology, although unknown at present. The affected animals were calves of less than 30 days, of all races born to mothers without specific parity. We noticed a very sporadic disease (1/10.000) but lethal to 99%. The characteristic lesions are multifocal hemorrhages, hyperthermia, melena, we noted medullar aplasia systematically. These calves are vironegative for BTV, enzootic bovine leukosis and BVDV. No viral or bacterial agent could be isolated. It seems that most of these calves were born from dams vaccinated against BVDV. The track of an immune dysfunction is the most serious for the moment.

Bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) infection is an important cause of outbreaks of respiratory disease among calves. This virus commonly induces mild to severe respiratory signs but, in a substantial proportion of cases, is also reported to be associated with paroxystic respiratory distress syndrome (PRDS). The pathogenesis of this 'malignant' clinical form has not been fully elucidated. The present study aimed at determining whether mast cell (MC) degranulation plays a role in the physiopathologic cascade leading to the PRDS. Paired serum samples were taken in herds during outbreaks of severe respiratory diseases (acute sera) and 3 weeks after (convalescent sera). Based on seroconversion to BRSV and clinical picture, 67 pairs of sera were selected from calves with a BRSV-associated PRDS for circulating MC tryptase determination. A MC metachromatic score was measured in post-mortem lungs from animals died from a BRSV-associated PRDS (principals) and compared with reference scores obtained from healthy lungs (controls). Levels of tryptase were significantly higher in acute sera (26.6+/-12.4 mug/l) compared to convalescent sera (8.4+/-7.8 mug/l; P < 0.001). Metachromatic scores yielded significantly different results between controls and principals (P < 0.01), demonstrating a significant disappearance of metachromatic granules from lung MCs in principals. Taken together, these data demonstrate the presence of an extensive MC degranulation in BRSV-associated PRDS. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of histamine on the contractile elements of the respiratory tract in neonatal calves and young adult cattle. SAMPLE POPULATION: Samples of trachealis muscle, bronchi, and intrapulmonary arteries and veins dissected from the respiratory tracts of healthy bovids (2 to 8 days and 16 to 20 months old). PROCEDURE: Histamine cumulative concentration-effect curves (10(-6) to 10(-3) M) were constructed in duplicate smooth muscle samples mounted in organ baths. Contractile responses to histamine were compared with reference contractions elicited by methacholine (10(-5) M) for airways or KCl (127 mM) for vessels. RESULTS: In young adult cattle, trachealis muscle had a substantial contractile response to histamine (84% of methacholine-induced contraction), whereas bronchi reacted slightly (15 and 20% for large and small bronchi, respectively). Although contractile responses to KCl were comparable in arteries and veins, histamine-induced contractions were greater for intrapulmonary veins than for arteries (202 vs 48% of KCl-induced contraction). In neonatal calves, histamine-induced contraction of veins also exceeded that of arteries (230 vs 54% of KCl-induced contraction); however, unlike in young adult cattle, histamine produced notable contraction of large and small bronchi (48 and 60% of methacholine-induced contraction, respectively). CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Compared with intrapulmonary arteries, intrapulmonary veins have greater contractile responses to histamine in neonatal and young adult cattle. Data suggest loss of histamine responsiveness in bronchial smooth muscle as neonatal calves grow to young adults. Venodilation may be useful in treatment of lung edema in cattle. [less ▲]

Theoretically, the overall effect of histamine on respiratory smooth muscle is the result of a subtle balance of contraction and relaxation. The aim of the study was to identify histamine type 2 (H2) and 3 (H3) receptor-dependent relaxing mechanisms in the contractile elements of the bovine tracheobronchial tree. In bronchial preparations, histamine induced very weak contractions, which were not exacerbated with the H2-antagonist cimetidine. Moreover, precontracted bronchial rings never relaxed in response to cumulative doses of histamine or amthamine (H2-agonist). In intact tracheal preparations, histamine induced strong contractions that were exacerbated by cimetidine (E-max : + 17.2 +/- 6.6%) but not by thioperamide (H3-antagonist). Precontracted tracheal bundles did not relax in response to cumulative doses of the H3-agonist R-alpha-methylhistamine. The tracheal contractile response was higher in denuded compared to intact preparations (11.0+/-1.2 vs. 6.0+/-1.7 g). Cimetidine effect was dramatically potentiated in denuded tracheal strips (+40.0+/-11.7%). It is concluded that the weak response. of bovine bronchi to histamine is due to a relative scarcity of H1 receptors on bronchial smooth muscle rather than to H2- or H3-dependent relaxation. In the bovine trachea, the smooth muscle possesses relaxing H2 but no H3 receptors. The epithelium exercises a relaxation, which is independent from H2 and H3 receptors.

The effect of platelet-activating factor (PAF) on bovine pulmonary mast cells (MCs) was investigated in calves aged 1-4 months. PAF was administered over a 5-min period at a rate of 50 ng/kg/min to six animals, which were killed approximately 10 min later. No macroscopical lesions were observed in the lung tissue of five control calves. On semi-thin toluidine-blue stained sections, MC cytoplasm showed profuse deep-blue granulation. In the lung tissues of PAF-treated calves, striking interstitial, alveolar and interlobular oedema and emphysema were observed. MC granules occurred at the periphery of the cytoplasm and MC nuclei were easily detectable. Moreover, the number of granules in the MC cytoplasm was remarkably low. A few granules with some metachromatic material were sometimes detected outside the cell limits. Ultrastructurally, the matrix pattern of the MC granules in lung tissues of control calves was either amorphous or granular. In lung tissues of the PAF-treated calves, the granular matrix pattern was pronounced, varying from fine- to coarse-grained, and the MCs were of reduced size, with many filiform processes and exocytotic vesicles. These findings indicate that pulmonary MC degranulation was induced by PAF in healthy calves. [less ▲]

The presence of chymase-like proteinase in bovine mast cells was investigated by an enzyme-histochemical technique (naphthol-AS-D-chloroacetate as substrate) in normal skin, primary bronchus, lung and duodenum. The counts and distribution of chymase-positive and toluidine blue-positive mast cells were compared by means of successive staining. Mast cells with chymase-like activity were detected in all areas, but their proportion was greater in connective than mucosal tissues, with the exception of the skin. These results contrast with those obtained in rodents, in which chymase-like proteinases are detected in all tissues and also in all mast cells. Bovine mast cells are closer to those of human beings, in which chymase-containing mast cells predominate in connective tissues, including skin. The results suggest that more than one chymase subset is present, at least in duodenum. The possible occurrence of dual-specific chymase mast cells, as in other ruminants, is discussed. [less ▲]

Navicular bones from the four limbs of 95 horses, classified in 9 categories, were studied. The effects of age on navicular bone morphometry and histomorphometry were estimated, after adjustment of the data to even out the effects of front and rear limbs, morphometrical type, sex, weight, and size. All the external measurements of the navicular bone decreased significantly with increasing age. From the histomorphometrical data, cortical bone volume decreased with age in most horses, whereas cancellous bone volume and, in particular, the marrow spaces increased. The increase in the cancellous bone volume could have resulted from tunnelling of the internal part of the cortex, which converted it progressively into a porous trabecular-like structure. Trabecular bone volume also decreased with age and the trabecular lattice changed dramatically to become disconnected in aged horses. These observations corresponded closely to those reported for ageing of the skeletal system in humans. However, in sporting horses, the navicular cortical bone volume increased with age and the cancellous bone volume decreased. Exercise appeared to have decreased bone resorption and increased bone formation at the endocortical junction. The cancellous bone architecture was also improved. in that the trabecular lattice and trabecular bone volume remained unchanged in aged sporting horses. Our findings confirmed that exercise may be good practice to prevent age-related bone loss. [less ▲]
