Brucellosi canina: la situazione epidemiologica in Europa

Brucella canis è uno dei numerosi agenti patogeni responsabili della discospondilite nel cane; le infezioni richiedono una gestione specifica. Poco si sa sulla situazione epidemiologica in Europa. Lo scopo dello studio è sto quello di ottenere informazioni sui casi di brucellosi nei cani in Europa.


Nell’articolo dal titolo “Efficacia e sicurezza di un prodotto spot-on a base di imidacloprid e moxidectina nel trattamento della capillariosi nasale del cane”, pubblicato su Summa 10/2018 a pagina 44, la nota finale “Il presente articolo è stato pubblicato precedentemente su Veterinary Parasitology, 2017, vol. 116, Suppl 1, pp. 65-74”, è da modificarsi in “Il presente articolo è stato pubblicato precedentemente su Parasitology Research, 2017, vol. 116, Suppl 1, pp. 65-74”. Ce ne scusiamo con gli autori e i lettori.
