    A 5-year-old boy underwent total plasma exchange to remove anti-neuronal anti-Hu autoantibodies as a complication of neuroblastoma, leading to autonomic bowel dysfunction. Total plasma exchange (TPE) resulted eventually in a reduction of autoantibody levels, but, more importantly, led to...

    Chlamydophila ( C.) abortus is the most common infectious abortigenic agent in small domestic ruminants in Switzerland. In contrast, the knowledge about chlamydiae in wild ruminants is scarce. As interactions between livestock and Alpine ibex ( Capra i. ibex) occur on alpine pastures, the...
