    • Pathogenic Vibrio isolates from cultured seabass (Lates calcarifer), groupers (Epinephelus spp.) and red snappers (Lutjanus spp.) 

      Palanisamy, V.; Oseko, Norihisa; Chuah, T. T.; Kua, Beng Chu; Vijayenthy, N. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      Heavy mortality of cultured seabass (Lates calcarifer), groupers (Epinephelus spp.) and snappers (Lutjanus spp.) due to bacterial infection is a common problem in Malaysia. All the three species exhibited a wide range of ...
    • Prevalence of yellow head virus in cultured black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon Fabricius) from selected shrimp farms in the Philippines 

      Natividad, Karlo Dante T.; Magbanua, Fe O.; Migo, Veronica P.; Alfafara, Catalino G.; Albaladejo, Juan D.; Nadala, Jr., Elpidio Cesar B.; Loh, Philip C.; Tapay, Lourdes M. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      The prevalence and geographic distribution of Yellow head virus (YHV) in cultured Penaeus monodon in the Philippines was documented by Western blot assay. Fifty-three out of 219 samples (24.2%) were found to be positive ...
    • Production and characterization of a monoclonal antibody against Aeromonas hydrophila 

      Chanphong, Jitkasem; Chinabut, Supranee; Polchana, Jaree; Thompson, Kim D.; Adams, Alexandra (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      A monoclonal antibody (MAb), 8D10, was produced against Aeromonas hydrophila strain 94030 isolated from giant gourami (Osphronemus gourami). This was classified as an IgG2a immunoglobulin by ELISA, and recognised a 41 kDa ...
    • Quorum sensing and its potential application to vibriosis 

      Dunlap, Paul V. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      Quorum sensing is a gene regulatory mechanism by which certain pathogenic and symbiotic bacteria respond to population density and host association. By mediating the ability of bacteria such as Vibrio harveyi to infect ...
    • Recent advances in fish parasitology in Japan 

      Ogawa, Kazuo (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      Recent advances in fish parasitological studies in Japan focus mainly on myxosporean, microsporean and monogenean infections. Myxosporeans: The two-host life cycle has been elucidated for several freshwater species ...
    • Significant diseases of molluscs in the Asia-Pacific region 

      Hine, Peter Michael (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      There have been relatively few studies on the diseases of molluscs in the Asian region, and those that have been carried out are often difficult to access. Therefore, our current knowledge of mollusc diseases in Asia is, ...
    • Studies on the efficacy of Sarafin® (sarafloxacin hydrochloride) on vibrios associated with vibriosis in black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) 

      Pakingking , Rolando, Jr. ORCID; Lacierda, Erlinda; Torres, James L. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      In vitro activity of Sarafin® (sarafloxacin hydrochloride) was determined against 7 luminous Vibrio harveyi isolates and 3 non-luminous Vibrio species (V. parahaemolyticus, V. alginolyticus and Vibrio species) isolated ...
    • Study of bacterial loading in macrophage cells of hybrid catfish 

      Somsiri, T.; Crumlish, M.; Dumrongphol, Y.; Panbanpeaw, A.; Thompson, K. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      Hybrid catfish (Clarias macrocephalus x Clarias gariepinus) farming has developed very successfully in Thailand over the last 10 years. Farmers, however, are still encountering disease problems and, as a result, face ...
    • Swollen hindgut syndrome (SHG) in hatchery-reared Penaeus monodon postlarvae 

      Lavilla-Pitogo, Celia R.; Paner, Milagros G.; Traviña, Remia D. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      In the course of routine microscopic analysis of hatchery-reared Penaeus monodon postlarvae, several batches were found with hindgut abnormalities not previously described in shrimp postlarvae. The abnormality was named ...
    • Vibriosis vaccine development: Immunological characterization of Vibrio alginolyticus 

      Taib, Azizah Nor Mohd; Shamsudin, Mariana Nor; Rozita, Rosli (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      The lipopolysaccharide (LPS) profiles of five Vibrio alginolyticus strains (14, 17, 26, 78 and ATCC 17749) were studied by SDS-PAGE. Strains (ST) 14, 17 and 26 were found to possess high molecular weight bands, suggesting ...
    • Viral infections in Australian freshwater crayfish 

      Edgerton, Brett F. (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      Viral diseases of freshwater crayfish are poorly understood. To date, much of the research in this field has been conducted in Australia and/or on Australian freshwater crayfish species. Cherax tenuimanus, Cherax destructor ...
    • VP2 protein carries neutralization epitopes in blotched snakehead virus (BSNV) 

      John, Kollanoor Riji; Richards, Randolph H.; George, Mulloorpeedikayil Rosalind (Fish Health Section, Asian Fisheries Society, 2002)
      A new aquabirnavirus (BSNV, blotched snakehead virus) was isolated from a persistently infected warmwater fish cell line (BSN) developed from blotched snakehead (Channa lucius). Four polypeptides of molecular mass 112 ...
