Iowa State University Veterinarian: Volume 1, Issue 1
Specific infectious equine encephalomyelitis and moldy corn poisoning in horses are becoming more prevalent in Iowa yearly. Encephalomyelitis has been described, the etiology determined, the mode of transmission established and the typical clinical and pathological findings resolved.
X-rays were first detected in the year of 1895 by the German physicist, William Conrad Roentgen. The discovery occurred during a systematic search for radiation capable of penetrating materials opaque to ordinary light.
In many instances a given infectious disease common to one species has its counterpart in other host species. Some infections are host specific while others are not. In Table I it will be noted that human Pasteurellosis is the type representative of a number of similar infections in other species. In the case of Brucellosis, the three main types of Brucella organisms are capable of infecting at least five species of hosts.
