Their collective work has helped characterize important pathogenic factors associated with Moraxella bovis and identified genes encoding these factors (Angelos et al.
Randomized controlled field trial to assess efficacy of a Moraxella bovis pilin-cytotoxin-Moraxella bovoculi cytotoxin subunit vaccine to prevent naturally occurring infectious bovine keratoconjunctivitis.
Cloning and characterization of a Moraxella bovis cytotoxin gene.
The following bacteria were isolated and identified following the methods and techniques described by Barrow and Feltham : Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Moraxella bovis, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Streptococcus pyogenes (Group A), and Trueperella (Arcanobacterium) pyogenes (Table 2).
This paved the way for active or passive introduction of pathogenic bacteria in the hair follicles and meibomian glands (Staphylococcus aureus, Moraxella bovis, and Streptococcus pyogenes Group A).
Moraxella bovis and Staphylococcus aureus were isolated from the infected material extracted from meibomian gland lesions.
