Researchers and farmers can use this information to define conservation objectives for individual breeds and examine environmental factors that affect extinction risk, such as disease threats. Molecular markers and geographic information come together in landscape genetics, a combination of landscape ecology and population genetics, to provide information on the interaction between landscape and evolutionary processes. Results reveal attributes that affect genetic adaptation to specific environmental stressors such as diseases, parasites, extreme heat, vegetation type, lack of water, or combinations. Recent preliminary studies in Brazil used these tools to identify the regional usage patterns for animal production based on environmental criteria and breed distribution data. The results have been used as a further criterion to optimise in situ, and ex situ conservation schemes and plan expansion and adaptation of production systems. The use of production environment descriptors and climatic and genetic information will help maintain animal production systems in a changing world.</p> 2022-05-07T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Applied Veterinary Research Basal plasma adrenocorticotrophic hormone concentration for diagnosing pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction in horses: Comparative analysis of two systematic reviews 2022-04-20T12:20:12+00:00 Anderson Fernando de Souza André Luis do Valle De Zoppa <p>The use of adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) as a diagnostic tool for pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (PPID) in horses is the subject of numerous scientific research, and two systematic reviews were identified, addressing precisely this topic. This is a rare and curious fact in the veterinary literature, as it allows us to analyze how two groups of independent researchers approached the same problem. This short review aims to carry out a qualitative comparative analysis of these two articles to identify the perception of two different research groups about the effectiveness of ACTH as a diagnostic tool for PPID in horses.</p> 2022-04-20T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Applied Veterinary Research Histological evaluation of <em>Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus</em> tick ovaries subjected to cobalt-60 ionizing radiation 2022-03-28T05:52:37+00:00 Alexandre Antonio Pasqualini Valter Arthur Michelen Barbosa Schiavolin Marina Rodrigues de Abreu Maria Izabel Camargo-Mathias <p>Females of <em>Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus</em> ticks ingurgitated and in the prepost phase were submitted to doses of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 Gy of Cobalt-60 with the aim of evaluating their effects on ovarian morphohistology with consequent establishment of the degree of damage caused to the reproductive organs of this species. For this purpose, 24 hours after exposure to Co-60 (142 Gy/h) the ectoparasites were dissected and had their ovaries removed and prepared for histology with haematoxylin and eosin staining. The results obtained showed that the 5 Gy dose radiation had a morphological aspect similar to the control standard adopted. The histological sections related to doses of 10 and 15 Gy did not cause many changes in the ovaries, except that changes were observed in the calf granules (size, distribution and staining pattern), as well as the extensive presence of cytoplasmic vacuoles in the ovocytes, especially in the region that makes contact with the ovocyte/pedicel, suggesting the occurrence of changes also in the physiology of the organ. In the ovaries exposed to doses of 20 and 25 Gy, severe alterations were observed in the organ as a whole, as well as in the germ cells (oocytes) which suffered alterations in size and shape, distribution of calf granules, involvement of the DNA present in the germinal vesicle (oocyte nuclei), besides the extensive cytoplasmic vacuolization, alterations which made the maturation of these cells impossible and consequently inhibited the production of new individuals.</p> 2022-05-14T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Applied Veterinary Research Management of chronic recurrent prepartum cervico-vaginal prolapse with multiple lacerations in a crossbred cow 2022-03-05T14:43:01+00:00 Gh Rasool Bhat Farooz Ahmad Lone Pawanpreet Singh Nahida Yousuf Masrat un Nisa Jalal U Din Parrah <p>Prepartum prolapse of vagina or vagina along with cervix is an obstetrical emergency arising as a result of number of factors, the most common being hormonal imbalances. Chronic cervicovaginal prolapse may have a genetic trend. In this report we received an emergency at our university referral hospital with a history of recurrent prolapse mass appearing through vulva during a late gestation in a cow. Prolapse mass was reduced, reposed and retained under epidural anesthesia. All the lacerations were sutured with catgut and Buhner’s suture, using infusion set, was applied on vulvar commissures for a period of 10 days. Also, the supportive therapy was advised. The present clinical article reports successful management of chronic recurrent pre-partum prolapse with lacerations in a cow.</p> 2022-04-11T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Applied Veterinary Research
