- Antibiotics for Crohn's Disease. // Medical Update;2003, Vol. 29 Issue 6, p1
Discusses research on the link between Crohn's disease and the Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratubercolosis, or MAP bug. Genetic testing method used in the study; Historical perspective on the MAP infection; Recommended procedures to eliminate the MAP bug; Background on Crohn's disease.
- High prevalence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis IS 900 DNA in gut tissues from individuals with Crohn's disease. Autschbach, F.; Eisold, S.; Hinz, U.; Zinser, S.; Linnebocher, M.; Giese, I.; Löffler, I.; Büchler, M. W.; Schmidt, J. // Gut;Jul2005, Vol. 54 Issue 7, p944
Background and aims: Conflicting results exist about the presence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) specific IS 900 DNA in Crohn's disease (CD) tissues. Therefore, we examined IS 900 in a large number of gut samples from patients with CD (n = 100) and ulcerative colitis...
- Genomic homogeneity between Mycobacterium avium subsp. avium and Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis belies their divergent growth rates. Bannantine, John P.; Qing Zhang; Ling-Ling Li; Kapur, Vivek // BMC Microbiology;2003, Vol. 3, p1
Background: Mycobacterium avium subspecies avium (M. avium) is frequently encountered in the environment, but also causes infections in animals and immunocompromised patients. In contrast, Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (M. paratuberculosis) is a slow-growing organism that is...
- Genomic and phenotypic variability of Mycobaterium avium subspecies. Dadvar, Ehsan // McGill Science Undergraduate Research Journal;2010, Vol. 5 Issue 1, p11
Introduction: Mycobacterium avium complex consists of M. intracellulare and the subspecies of M. avium subsp. avium, M. avium subsp. paratuberculosis and M. avium subsp. hominissuis. Despite their taxonomic relationship, these subspecies are organisms with distinct phenotypes, ranging from...
- Typing of Mycobacterium avium Subspecies paratuberculosis Isolates from Newfoundland Using Fragment Analysis. Podder, Milka P.; Banfield, Susan E.; Keefe, Greg P.; Whitney, Hugh G.; Tahlan, Kapil // PLoS ONE;Apr2015, Vol. 10 Issue 4, p1
Short Sequence Repeat (SSR) typing of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (Map) isolates is one of the most commonly used method for genotyping this pathogen. Currently used techniques have challenges in analyzing mononucleotide repeats >15 bp, which include some of the Map SSRs....
- Pan-genomic analysis of bovine monocyte-derived macrophage gene expression in response to in vitro infection with Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis. MacHugh, David E.; Taraktsoglou, Maria; Killick, Kate E.; Nalpas, Nicolas C.; Browne, John A.; Park, Stephen D. E.; Hokamp, Karsten; Gormley, Eamonn; Magee, David A. // Veterinary Research;Dec2012, Vol. 43 Issue 1, p1
Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis is the causative agent of Johne's disease, an intestinal disease of ruminants with major economic consequences. Infectious bacilli are phagocytosed by host macrophages upon exposure where they persist, resulting in lengthy subclinical phases of...
- Mycobacterium paratuberculosis cervical lymphadenitis... Hermon-Taylor, John; Barnes, Nick; Clarke, Chris; Finlayson, Caroline // BMJ: British Medical Journal (International Edition);02/07/98, Vol. 316 Issue 7129, p449
Discusses the clinical significance of mycobacterium paratuberculosis organism. Histological characteristics of the organism; Drugs used to treat Mycobacterium paratuberculosis infection; How the bacteria occurs in animal infections.
- Seroprevalence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis in elks in Korea. Kim, J-M.; Ku, B. K.; Lee, H-N.; Hwang, I-Y.; Jang, Y-B.; Kook, J. H.; Jung, S-C. // Veterinary Record: Journal of the British Veterinary Association;1/28/2012, Vol. 170 Issue 4, Special section p102
The article presents an overview regarding the seroprevalence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) in elks in various distinct areas of Korea.
- Comparison of PCR Prescreening to Two Cultivation Procedures with PCR Confirmation for Detection of Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in U.S... Ellingson, Jay L. E.; Koziczkowski, Jeffrey J.; Anderson, Jennifer L. // Journal of Food Protection;Oct2004, Vol. 67 Issue 10, p2310
Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis (MAP) is the etiologic agent in Johne's disease in cattle and causes diarrhea, decreased milk production, emaciation, and frequently death. The ability to detect MAP rapidly and accurately is an integral part of herd management. However, detection of...
