The article discusses information concerning the study of equine influenza A viruses (AIV) which is a highly infectious respiratory pathogen of horses. It is reported that there is few information on the seroprevalence and geographical distribution of AIV infections in Mexico after having conducted a study to estimate the number of infected horses. It is concluded that seroprevalence in southern Mexico is moderate compared to the horses in the north-east of the country.

    We evaluated West Nile virus (WNV) seroprevalence in dogs and cats in Shanghai, China. Seventeen of the 367 dogs (4.6%) and 46 of the 309 cats (14.9%) tested positive for WNV antibodies. A higher WNV seroprevalence was found with outdoor and rural pets than with indoor and urban pets. However,...

    Background: Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is a contagious viral disease of small ruminants in Africa and Asia. In 1999, probably the largest survey on PPR ever conducted in Africa was initiated in Ethiopia where 13 651 serum samples from 7 out of the 11 regions were collected and analyzed by...
