Atopic dermatitis in Norwegian dogs

, : Atopic dermatitis in Norwegian dogs. Nordisk Veterinaermedicin 37(2): 97-106

Of 122 dogs showing clinical symptoms of atopic dermatitis, 65.6% exhibited immediate skin test reactivity to one or more well defined allergen extracts, when intradermal skin tests were performed. The Prausnitz-Küstner test performed on two non-atopic recipient dogs, with serum from affected dogs, showed that "reaginic" antibodies transferred in serum from all affected dogs remained bound within the skin of the recipient dogs for 192 hours. House dust, house dust mite (D. farinae) and human dander were the allergens which most commonly caused immediate skin reactions and West Highland White Terriers and Boxers were the most affected breeds. Age at onset of clinical symptoms proved to be 1-4 year in 72.2% of the dogs.

We studied the demographic responses of Ceriodaphnia dubia exposed to copper at 3 different levels (0.1, 0.2 and 0.4 mg l(-1)) and at 4 exposure periods (3, 6, 12 and 24 hr) in addition to controls (without the heavy metal). The tested levels of C...

In an earlier article the author proposed a model of T cell dynamics in which rising activation rates produced falling T-cell counts. Here I show that, in a model of this type, apoptosis and proliferation must nearly balance. Hence, small perturba...
