Contagious equine metritis (CEM) is a venereal disease of horses caused by the bacteria Taylorella equigenitalis. It is spread during breeding or through contact with contaminated objects. This disease occurs very rarely in the United States and does not affect other livestock or Size: 56KB. Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center, Department of Veterinary Science, University of Kentucky, Lexington ABSTRACT: Contagious equine metritis (CEM) has given rise to international concern since it was first rec-ognized as a novel venereal disease of equids in and the etiologic agent was identified as a previously undescribed. Contagious Equine Metritis Introduction: Contagious equine metritis (CEM) is a venereal disease that is spread from horse to horse most often through contact made during the breeding process. Both stallions and mares can be infected with the disease. Contagious Equine Metritis Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM), a uterine infection of horses, has recently appeared in Ceritral Kentucky. This is the first time the disease has been detected in the United States. Kentucky authorities report that two or three stallions may be infected, withpossibly40 mareshavingbeenexposedto thedisease.

  Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM) Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM) is a venereal disease caused by the bacteria, Taylorella equigenitalis affecting only the equine species. It can have significant impacts on reproduction. Treatment of CEM is usually successful. CEM has not been shown to be zoonotic. Contagious equine metritis is a highly contagious, but uncommon, sexually transmitted disease of horses. The disease occurs primarily in Europe and is uncommon in the United States. The disease is caused by infection with Taylorella equigenitalis bacteria, also known as the contagious equine metritis organism. Contagious Equine Metritis Prevention and Control Information about how to prevent and control further spread of Contagious Equine Metritis. Carrier mares (stallions make the disease difficult to control, because they may show no signs of infection. Contagious equine metritis (CEM) is an extremely contagious venereal disease that is acquired primarily via breeding. While this disease can be carried by either mares or stallions, it is the mare that suffers the ill effects of the infection.

A Gram‐negative coccobacillus was isolated from field cases and the disease was reproduced experimentally by inoculating a pure culture of the organism through the cervix of clean pony by: Stud-book(s): SF WFFS (Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome): TBD EVA (Equine Viral Arteritis) - TBD PSSM1 (Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy)- TBD CEM (Contagious Equine Metritis)- TBD Color. CONTAGIOUS EQUINE METRITIS (CEM) Contagious Equine Merits (CEM) is a highly contagious venereal disease of equine and zebra caused by the bacterium Taylorella equigenitalis. It is associated with economic losses due to its detrimental effects on equine reproductive efficiency and the costs related to the treatment and testing for the diseases. Contagious Equine Metritis. Contagious equine metritis is still a big concern for the equine breeding industry as demonstrated by the outbreak in the United States. The disease is primarily caused by Taylorella equigenitalis, although some have reported isolation of T. asinigenitalis from stallions. ,, The disease is asymptomatic in stallions but causes catarrhal endometritis, cervicitis, .
