Analysis of haematological and biochemical blood parameters after electrical cardioversion of atrial fibrillation in dogs

micro- and macro-reentrant circuits are involved in maintaining the arrhythmia ( 5 , 17 , 18 ). Its self-perpetuating nature leads to electrical and eventually structural remodelling expressed as a shortened atrial refractory period, atrial refractoriness dispersion, calcium overload, disseminated tissue fibrosis, and hypertrophy and dilatation of the atria ( 15 ). A rapid ventricular response rate, in many cases exceeding 260 bpm, results from very effective conduction within the atrioventricular node in dogs ( 3 ). It is often the cause of sudden development of

Lack of association between Epstein–Barr virus and mammary tumours in dogs

positive for human papilloma virus (HPV) and mouse mammary tumour virus (MMTV) gene sequences, demonstrating that individual or multiple viruses could be present in breast cancer ( 8 ). Most recently EBV was shown to infect mammary epithelial cells in vitro suggesting that the virus could play a role in the early steps of malignant transformation through the so-called “hit-and-run” mechanism ( 13 ). Canine mammary tumours have epidemiological, histopathological, and molecular resemblance to human breast cancer and dogs have been proposed as a useful animal model to
