bat

A family of small flying mammals, order Chiroptera.
 
Bat pathogens
Duvenhage virus, Histoplasma capsulatum, Kasokero virus, Mokola virus, Lyssavirus, rabies, salmonellosis, Yuli virus.

Abbreviation for:
behavioural avoidance test

Bivalirudin Angioplasty Trial  A trial comparing bivalirudin/Angiomax to heparin in patients undergoing percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) for unstable angina.
 
Primary endpoint
In-hospital death, acute MI, target lesion revascularisation.
 
Conclusion
Post-PTCA for unstable angina, ASA and bivalirudin/Angiomax has fewer cardiac and haemorrhagic in-hospital events than ASA and heparin; post-PCI infusion of antithrombotics was used in both study groups.

Logistics
Randomised, double-blinded; 4315 patients—2151 heparin + aspirin, 2161 bivalirudin + aspirin.

BAT

Blunt abdominal trauma. See Blunt trauma.

Abbreviation for breath alcohol technician.

All rabies-positive serotine bats came from southern Spain (Huelva, Seville, Murcia, and Badajoz) and were molecularly identified as E.
Endemic circulation of European bat lyssavirus type 1 in serotine bats, Spain.
The serotine bat (Eptesicus serotinus) is considered the main reservoir for European bat lyssavirus type 1 (EBLV1).
In 1989, 5 EBLV1-infected serotine bats were found dead during a survey of natural colonies in Huelva (Andalusia).
Our findings suggest that asymptomatic EBLV1 RNA carriage may be common in serotine bats (2-5,9,13,14).
In the Netherlands, genotype 1 lyssaviruses were eradicated in the early 1990s, but EBLVs are endemic in several bat species; the serotine bat, Eptesicus serotinus, is considered the main reservoir of rabies in this country.
Lyssavirus was detected in 2 species only, the serotine bat and the pond bat, Myotis dasycneme.
The geographic origin of tested and EBLV-positive serotine and pond bats are depicted in Figures 4 and 5, respectively.
From 1984 to 2003, the serotine bat appeared to be the main wildlife reservoir of EBLVs in the Netherlands, as in several other European countries (7).
