  • Emu oil suppresses inflammatory responses of RAW 264 macrophages via
           inhibition of NF-κB signaling

    • Authors: Adachi; Takuya, Ogura, Eren, Yamamoto, Kumiko, Ito, Minoru, Niwa, Koichi
      Abstract: Title: Emu oil suppresses inflammatory responses of RAW 264 macrophages via inhibition of NF-κB signaling
      Authors : Adachi, Takuya; Ogura, Eren; Yamamoto, Kumiko; Ito, Minoru; Niwa, Koichi: Emu oil has been shown to alleviate several symptoms of inflammation in animal models, but mechanisms mediating the process are unknown. We investigated the influence of emu oil on the production of inflammatory mediators in the murine macrophage cell line RAW264 to elucidate anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Stimulation with a combination of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and interferon-γ (IFN-γ) increased production of nitric oxide, interleukin 6 and prostaglandin E2 in RAW264 cells, and emu oil inhibited the increase in these mediators. Western blot analysis showed that emu oil inhibited phosphorylation of the regulatory protein IκB-α and inhibited NF-κB nuclear import induced by LPS and IFN-γ. These results suggest that emu oil suppresses inflammatory responses of RAW264 by inhibiting NF-κB signaling.

  • Aqueous humor SPARC concentration in canine glaucomas

    • Authors: Kubo; Akira, Miyasho, Taku, Nakamura, Kozo, Ito, Yosuke, Endo, Yusuke, Masuko, Arisa, Hayashi, Miri, Maehara, Seiya, Nakade, Tetsuya
      Abstract: Title: Aqueous humor SPARC concentration in canine glaucomas
      Authors : Kubo, Akira; Miyasho, Taku; Nakamura, Kozo; Ito, Yosuke; Endo, Yusuke; Masuko, Arisa; Hayashi, Miri; Maehara, Seiya; Nakade, Tetsuya: This study was conducted to identify new objective parameters to diagnose and etiologically differentiate canine glaucomas. In the first phase, proteomic analysis was performed by two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (2D-PAGE) and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MS) on the aqueous humor of each single eye of five healthy dogs, three dogs with primary glaucoma, and three dogs with secondary glaucoma. Secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) was identified as a protein that was expressed in all healthy dogs but not in any of glaucomatous dogs. In the second part of the study, we examined SPARC concentrations in the aqueous humor of each single eye of 13 healthy dogs, 14 dogs with primary glaucoma and 13 dogs with secondary glaucoma by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The SPARC concentration was numerically lower with primary glaucoma (0.486 ± 0.047 ng/ml, mean ± standard error) and numerically higher with secondary glaucoma (0.738 ± 0.089 ng/ml) compared to the control eyes (0.637 ± 0.081 ng/ml). Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis confirmed the ability of the aqueous humor SPARC concentration to differentiate between primary and secondary glaucomas (AUC = 0.72). Thus, 2D-PAGE and MS might be valuable tools for screening of the aqueous humor proteins in canine glaucoma, and the SPARC concentration has a clinical potential in the etiological classification of canine glaucomas.

  • Sequence type and primary structure of the vru gene upstream region of
           Streptococcus uberis isolated from bovine clinical mastitis in Japan

    • Authors: Watanabe; Atsushi, Kawai, Kazuhiro, Hata, Eiji, Goto, Shinya, Shinozuka, Yasunori, Kurumisawa, Tomomi, Koyama, Yoshikazu, Chikayama, Yukio, Kiku, Yoshio, Nagasawa, Yuya, Hayashi, Tomohito
      Abstract: Title: Sequence type and primary structure of the vru gene upstream region of Streptococcus uberis isolated from bovine clinical mastitis in Japan
      Authors : Watanabe, Atsushi; Kawai, Kazuhiro; Hata, Eiji; Goto, Shinya; Shinozuka, Yasunori; Kurumisawa, Tomomi; Koyama, Yoshikazu; Chikayama, Yukio; Kiku, Yoshio; Nagasawa, Yuya; Hayashi, Tomohito: In the present study, we investigated the variability of bovine clinical mastitis isolates of Streptococcus uberis in Japan by multilocus sequence typing. We also investigated the variations in the primary structure of the vru gene upstream region of the isolates to elucidate the association of this region with the occurrence of clinical mastitis. Eighty-two isolates were recovered from 62 dairy farms in Japan; these isolates were associated with 57 sequence types (STs), including 54 novel STs to which 78 isolates belonged. Thirty isolates with ST1003 (one of the novel STs) and related STs at the triple-locus variant level accounted for 37% of the isolates examined. A total 16 (20%) isolates were assigned to clonal complexes (CC143 and CC86) that are major in New Zealand and Australia. Seventy-one of the 82 isolates had 1, 3, 4 or 5 bp deletions in the vru gene upstream region in comparison with the corresponding region in the S. uberis virulent strain 0140J and the remaining 11 isolates had no deletions. These results suggest that S. uberis is a diverse mastitis-causing pathogen, and the integrity of the vru gene upstream region is not necessarily conclusive for the occurrence of bovine clinical mastitis.

  • Severe soft tissue infection with septic shock caused by Streptococcus
           canis sequence type 9 harboring M-like protein allele 1 in a miniature
           dachshund

    • Authors: Murata; Yoshiteru, Tsuyuki, Yuzo, Hayashi, Daisuke, Murata, Shigeki, Fukushima, Yasuto, Yoshida, Haruno, Takahashi, Takashi
      Abstract: Title: Severe soft tissue infection with septic shock caused by Streptococcus canis sequence type 9 harboring M-like protein allele 1 in a miniature dachshund
      Authors : Murata, Yoshiteru; Tsuyuki, Yuzo; Hayashi, Daisuke; Murata, Shigeki; Fukushima, Yasuto; Yoshida, Haruno; Takahashi, Takashi: We report a case of Streptococcus canis-induced severe soft tissue infection (SSTI) in the left hindlimb of a miniature dachshund (male/13-year-old), with septic shock. The dog underwent immediate exploration/debridement of necrotic area in the hindlimb, with imipenem administration after culture sampling. The pathogen was isolated from necrotic tissue and blood, and then identified using mass spectrometry/molecular characterization (sequence type 9 harboring M-like protein allele 1). The dog experienced recurrent soft tissue inflammation in the hindlimb 115 days after onset and received ampicillin treatment, after which the dog was cured without further recurrence. This is the first report of an animal cured of SSTI in Japan. S. canis should be considered a causative bacterium when examining/treating animals with SSTI and recurrence.

  • Inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 by povidone-iodine products: implications for
           effective mouth rinsing and gargling

    • Authors: Kariwa; Hiroaki, Sawa, Hirofumi, Kobayashi, Shintaro
      Abstract: Title: Inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 by povidone-iodine products: implications for effective mouth rinsing and gargling
      Authors : Kariwa, Hiroaki; Sawa, Hirofumi; Kobayashi, Shintaro: Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted mainly via droplets and contact. The implementation of infection control measures is important to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases. Thus, the ability of several povidone-iodine (PVP-I) products to inactivate SARS-CoV-2 was evaluated based on their in vitro inactivation efficacy. PVP-I solutions such as Isodine Gargle® (ethical and consumer products), Isodine Gargle C®, and Isodine Nodo Fresh® for 30 or 60 s decreased the viral infectivity level from 2-4 × 106 TCID50/ml to below the detectable level (> 99.9% reduction). Our results indicate that the use of Isodine® mouthwash and gargle products is an effective infection control measure against SARS-CoV-2.

      Abstract: Title: Immunomodulatory effects of Lactobacillus biogenic administration in dogs
      Authors : Hayasaka, Junro; Nunomura, Yuka; Omura, Miki; Katayama, Yukie; Yokota, Tomoko; Osawa, Nanako; Makino, Shinji; Mizutani, Tetsuya; Uchide, Tsuyoshi; Yoshiteru, Murata: Lactobacillus biogenics were administered to four dogs for 56 days. The regulatory T cell (Treg) count was found to be increased in all four dogs on 56 days. On day 112, 56 days after completion of Lactobacillus probiotic administration, the percentage of Tregs was found to be decreased in three dogs. Plasma IgA levels tended to increase after stopping Lactobacillus administration. Metagenomic analysis of bacterial flora found in dog feces revealed that Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes, and Fusobacteria were predominantly found in all 4 dogs. Analysis of fecal microbiomes of species level on day 56 showed that 99 % members of genus Prevotella belonged to species copri. This study demonstrates some of the immunomodulatory effects of Lactobacillus probiotics on dogs.

  • Contrast-enhanced computed tomography characterization of canine rectal
           neoplasms

    • Authors: Tanaka; Toshiyuki, Iimori, Yasumasa, Yamazaki, Hiroki, Nishida, Hidetaka, Akiyoshi, Hideo
      Abstract: Title: Contrast-enhanced computed tomography characterization of canine rectal neoplasms
      Authors : Tanaka, Toshiyuki; Iimori, Yasumasa; Yamazaki, Hiroki; Nishida, Hidetaka; Akiyoshi, Hideo: Differential diagnosis of rectal neoplasms is necessary to determine an appropriate treatment plan. In humans, computed tomography (CT) is used to evaluate colorectal neoplasms. This retrospective study assessed the CT features of canine rectal neoplasms, including seventeen inflammatory polyps, six adenocarcinomas, three B-cell lymphomas and four leiomyomas on triple-phase CT. A mass lesion was observed in all seventeen cases of inflammatory polyps (100%), two of six adenocarcinomas (33%), and all four cases of leiomyoma (100%). Wall thickening was observed in four of six (67%) adenocarcinoma cases and all three (100%) lymphoma cases. The leiomyoma was more likely to show obstruction than inflammatory polyps, adenocarcinomas, and lymphomas. Homogeneous enhancement was detected in zero of seventeen (0%) inflammatory polyp cases, two of six (33%) adenocarcinoma cases, all three (100%) lymphoma cases, and all four (100%) leiomyoma cases in all post contrast phases. Lymphadenopathy was detected in three adenocarcinoma cases (50%) and three lymphoma cases (100%). Inflammatory polyps indicated a heterogeneous radial-enhancement mass. Leiomyomas indicated a homogeneous enhancement mass with bowel obstruction. In wall thickening lesions, adenocarcinoma indicated twolayer thickened annular lesions and lymphoma indicated homogeneous thickened annular lesions but less enhancement than the mucosa. These findings may help confirm the diagnosis and reduce the use of invasive biopsy procedures.

  • Sustained high progesterone concentrations during estradiol-progesterone
           based estrus synchronization protocol in Japanese Black cows affects
           fertility by influencing preovulatory follicle size and its ovulation

    • Authors: Ueno; Daisaku, Goto, Akira, Hazano, Ken, Haneda, Shingo, Matsui, Motozumi
      Abstract: Title: Sustained high progesterone concentrations during estradiol-progesterone based estrus synchronization protocol in Japanese Black cows affects fertility by influencing preovulatory follicle size and its ovulation
      Authors : Ueno, Daisaku; Goto, Akira; Hazano, Ken; Haneda, Shingo; Matsui, Motozumi: Preovulatory follicle (POF) size during estrus synchronization has been reported as one of the factors affecting conception rate in cattle. In present study, to determine the effects of POF size on the fertility of Japanese Black cows, relationship between POF size and conception rates and the effects of progesterone (P4) concentration on POF size were examined. An intravaginal progesterone-releasing device (CIDR) insertion and estradiol benzoate (EB) injection were applied to cows (day 0). At CIDR removal (day 8), the cows were received prostaglandin F2α and subsequently artificially inseminated between days 10 and 11, after EB administration (day 9). The cow that did not ovulate within 3 days after insemination had a small POF (ranging 5 to 8 mm) at CIDR removal, and they did not get pregnant. Cows that ovulated within 3 days were classified based on the POF size as follows: 1) small follicles (SF): POF < 10 mm, 2) medium follicles (MF): 10 ≤ POF < 11 mm, and 3) large follicles (LF): POF ≥ 11 mm. There was no difference in conception rates between SF (78.0%), MF (73.5%) and LF (62.2%). Luteolysis during CIDR treatment occurred in all cows in MF and LF groups, however 39.1% in SF showed no luteolysis. In the cows with non-luteolysis in SF, POF size at CIDR removal was smaller than the luteolysis group in SF, MF and LF groups (P < 0.05). In Japanese Black cows, P4 concentrations during estrus synchronization affects fertility by controlling POF size and its ovulation rate.

           pseudintermedius : a pilot study

    • Authors: Kusumoto; Mizuki, Harada, Kazuki
      Abstract: Title: Evaluation of the screening capacity of commerciallyavailable MRSA-selective media for methicillinresistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius : a pilot study
      Authors : Kusumoto, Mizuki; Harada, Kazuki: This study was conducted to evaluate the screening capacity of nine methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)-selective media for methicillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius (MRSP). We used 10 highlevel oxacillin-resistant MRSP (HLR-MRSP), 10 low-level oxacillin-resistant MRSP (LLR-MRSP), and 20 methicillin-susceptible S. pseudintermedius (MSSP) strains isolated from canine pyoderma. All of the nine media suppressed the growth of all MSSP strains for 48 hr incubation. The detection sensitivity of HLR-MRSP was 90-100% (24 hr) and 100% (48 hr) in all media. Furthermore, the detection sensitivity of LLR-MRSP was 100% (24 and 48 hr) in MRSA Screen Agar (MSA), and 0-60% (24 hr) and 80-100% (48 hr) in the other media. Our findings indicate that MSA might be useful to rapidly screen both HLR-MRSP and LLR-MRSP.

  • Verification of a simplified disk diffusion method for antimicrobial
           susceptibility testing of bovine mastitis isolates

    • Authors: Kurumisawa; Tomomi, Kawai, Kazuhiro, Shinozuka, Yasunori
      Abstract: Title: Verification of a simplified disk diffusion method for antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bovine mastitis isolates
      Authors : Kurumisawa, Tomomi; Kawai, Kazuhiro; Shinozuka, Yasunori: Bovine mastitis is mainly treated with antimicrobials. Determination of antimicrobial treatments based on the results of an antimicrobial susceptibility test is important to reduce the risk of emergence of antimicrobial resistance and to provide effective treatment. In Japan, not only the standardized agar disk diffusion method (standardized-ADD) based on Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines, but also the agar disk diffusion method further simplified (simplified-ADD) are widely used as antimicrobial susceptibility tests for bovine mastitis isolates in the clinical laboratory. However, whether the simplified-ADD is a useful alternative to the standardized-ADD has not yet been sufficiently verified. Therefore, to verify the usefulness of the simplified-ADD, we compared the results of the standardized-ADD and the simplified-ADD using clinical isolates of bovine mastitis. Following testing of 83 isolates from 11 bacterial species, the correlation coefficient of the disk zone diameters in both methods was 0.92, indicating that the simplified-ADD is effective as an alternative method to the standardized-ADD. However, because the disk zone diameter tended to be smaller in the simplified-ADD than in the standardized-ADD, sufficient attention should be paid to this point when determining the treatment for clinical cases of mastitis from the results of the simplified-ADD. The fact that a difference in the results between the two methods was present means that the results cannot be interpreted based on the same criteria. Therefore, determination of the criteria appropriate for the simplified-ADD is needed.
