  There are no assays of experimental infection of sheep with Histophilus somni and their immune response. In order to know the humoral immune response of sheep experimentally infected by respiratory tract with H. somni, 19 male, 6 month-old sheep were immuno-suppressed with dexamethasone, 1 day before being inoculated with Parainfluenza 3 virus and during 5 days after viral inoculation. Seven days after viral inoculation, one animal was slaughtered in order to observe lesions caused by the virus. Another 12 animals were inoculated intratracheally with H. somni (1109 UFC mL 1), leaving 6 animals as controls that received same pathway sterile PSS. Heart and respiratory rates were taken, as well as rectal temperature, during 14 days after challenge. Serum and nasal exudate samples were collected to determine IgG, IgM and IgA levels by indirect ELISA test, using H. somni 40 kDa outer membrane protein as antigen. Two sheep from the inoculated group and one from the control group were humanely euthanized every week during 6 weeks. Samples were collected from lung, tonsils, retropharyngeal and mediastinal lymph nodes; bacteriology studies were carried out in duplicate and DNA was extracted to perform PCR with primers designed for 16S ribosomal region in H. somni. Infected animals had temperature and respiratory rate increase, cough and mucopurulent nasal exudate; areas in the apical lung lobule were consolidated and there were adherences as well as. H. somni was isolated from only one animal from retropharyngeal node. Nevertheless, from nasal exudate samples, 11 of 12 infected sheep came out positive by PCR while the 6 non-infected controls were negative. ELISA test results for IgG were significantly different between infected and control animals at days 4 and 7 after inoculation, while no differences were found in IgM and IgA. It was concluded that in sheep experimentally infected, H. somni caused an IgG isotype humoral immune response. The presence of the bacteria could be detected by PCR in 91.66% of the animals. Even though the strain used in this research was previously passed through sheep, it did not cause lesions or signs that could suggest infection and it could not be recovered by bacteriology in most of the infected sheep.

  The present study was aimed to detect B. abortus DNA from aborted cows and differentiated its vaccinal and/or field origin. The PCR technique was used to identify and differentiate S19, RB51and field strains. The research was performed in a dairy farm located in the state of Aguascalientes, Mexico, with reproductive problems and abortions. Cows were vaccinated when calves with RB51, normal dose and revaccinated with RB51reduced dose 8 months before starting the study. The number of revaccinations of each cow, was not known since it is customary to revaccinate in one or more occasions. Samples of milk, blood serum and vaginal exudates were collected from 30 cows that had aborted between day 166 and 260 of gestation, all the abortions occurred 22-30 days before sampling; Card, rivanol and radial immunodiffusion tests were performed for Brucellosis diagnosis. For the bacteriological study samples of milk and vaginal swabs were used. The isolated strains were subjected to PCR using specific primers for RB51, S19 and field strains. From the 30 vaginal exudate samples bacteriological analyzed, we isolated smooth B. abortus biotype 1 was isolated from four cows. Thirteen out of the 30 cows vaginal exudates analyzed by PCR revealed the presence of DNA corresponding to RB51 vaccine, the 13 cows that were positive to RB51 through PCR had negative results in both the bacteriological and serological studies.
