Abstract

A retrospective evaluation of data on antibodies to respiratory viruses in Beira antelopes was
conducted due to the occurrence of chronic “Fibrinous Pleuropneumonia Syndrome” (FPPS) in
Beira antelopes at Al Wabra Wildlife Preservation, to detect an indication for a virological problem
contributing to the susceptibility of Beiras to infection with Mycoplasma spp. Data on Speke’s
gazelles at AWWP were evaluated for comparison. From the 5 tested respiratory viruses BHV-1,
BVD, ADENO-3, PI-3 and BRSV, significant antibody titres were only found for BRSV and PI-3.
Speke‘s gazelles were found to have higher antibody titres for both viruses than the Beira
antelope, with respiratory signs noted in accordance with virological findings In Beira, the often
fatal respiratory syndrome appears unlikely to be related to any of these viruses.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
