Title: 
APOPTOTIC NEURONS IN A CAT WITH CEREBELLAR ABIOTROPHY
Author(s): 
H. De Bosschere, M. Bos, R. Ducatelle
Abstract: 
Cerebellar abiotrophy is defined as a premature spontaneous progressive loss of neurons. In an 11-months-old cat with cerebellar abiotrophy, clinical symptoms developed progressively after castration. Histologically a loss of Purkinje cells, granular layer cells and demyelination of white matter were observed. Apoptotic neurons were found using the TUNEL technique. In this case the cerebellar abiotrophy was due to apoptosis of neuronal populations. An episode of anoxia/hypoxia of the nervous system during anesthesia may have played a role in the induction of cerebellar apoptosis.

Title: 
PREVALENCE AND PATHOGENIC SIGNIFICANCE OF CIRCOVIRUS-LIKE INFECTIONS IN RACING PIGEONS (COLUMBA LIVIA)
Author(s): 
P. Tavernier, P. De Herdt, H. Thoonen, R. Ducatelle
Abstract: 
The prevalence of circovirosis in 158 young racing pigeons necropsied in the Avian Diseases Clinic of Ghent University (Belgium) between January and August 1999 was 19%. The highest incidence was observed between March and May. The frequency and nature of concurrent infections, lesions and clinical signs were identical in pigeons that were positive and pigeons that were negative for circovirus infection, though mortality was significantly higher in the former. Findings indicate that circovirosis is an infection that is frequently associated with mortality in young pigeons. Clinical indications for the immunosuppressive effects of circovirus were not found.

Title: 
A SURVEY OF ANTHELMINTIC RESISTANCE ON BELGIAN HORSE FARMS
Author(s): 
P. Dorny, I. Meijer, K. Smets, J. Vercruysse
Abstract: 
A survey to determine the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance of cyathostomes was carried out on 13 horse farms distributed over five different Belgian provinces. Based on faecal egg count reduction tests, resistance to mebendazole (a benzimidazole) was demonstrated on 12 (92%) of these 13 farms. The efficacy ranged from 0% to 100%. The efficacy of pyrantel could be evaluated on only three farms, where the faecal egg count reduction varied from 83% to 96%, which suggested a reduced efficacy of this drug on one farm. The very high prevalence of mebendazole resistance in this study shows that drugs of the (pro-)benzimidazole family should not be used to control cyathostome infections. This survey also demonstrates that the efficacy of anthelmintics used for cyathostome control programmes on horse farms should be routinely evaluated.
