Echinococcosis/hydatidosis in western Iran.
Fertility rates of different types and forms of cysts isolated from infected animals and the viability of protoscolices were determined, showing higher fertility rate than the cysts of liver and lungs of goats, cattle and buffaloes.
A study on intestinal helminthes of dogs, foxes and jackals in the western part of Iran.
The intestinal content of 83 stray dogs, 22 red foxes and 10 golden Jackals collected from the West Azarbaijan, Kordestan and Kermanshah provinces in the west of Iran, were studied for the presence of helminth parasites.

Molecular analysis of the ITS1 region of rDNA derived from human, sheep and camel isolates were in agreement with the morphological findings and based on the PCR-RFLP method, the sheep and human isolates appeared to pertain to the same genotype and the camel isolate were appeared toPertain to a different genotype.
Latent Toxoplasmosis and Human
New findings about importance of latent toxoplasmosis (except in immunocompromised patients) in alterations of behavioral parameters and also its role in the etiology of schizophrenia and depressive disorders, obsessive–compulsive disorder, Alzheimer's diseases and Parkinson's disease, mental retardation and intelligence quotients are reviewed.
Ultrastructural and molecular characterization of Sarcocystis isolated from camel (Camelus dromedarius) in Iran
The results indicated that only microcysts were observed in muscle samples of camel Sarcocystis, which is the first for molecular information (DNA sequence and RLFP digestion pattern) reported for the first time in Iran and the world.
Efficacy of biogenic selenium nanoparticles against Leishmania major: in vitro and in vivo studies.
Based on in vitro and in vivo studies, biogenic Se NPs can be considered as a novel therapeutic agent for treatment of the localized lesions typical of cutaneous leishmaniasis.
Molecular detection of Neospora caninum in house sparrows (Passer domesticus) in Iran
This study is the first molecular evidence of N. caninum DNA in bird hosts in Iran and highlights the role of the house sparrow (Passer domesticus) in maintaining and spreading N.caninum infection to canines in the feral and domestic environment.
Immune responses against excreted/secreted antigens of Toxoplasma gondii tachyzoites in the murine model.
Exretory secretory antigens of Toxoplasma gondii, especially ESA-F(2) should be of value for the development of new strategies for immunization against toxoplasmosis were evaluated in immunization of inbred female Balb/c mice.
Fasciola hepatica in the human eye.
During intraocular surgery of a 44-year-old woman from Guilan Province in north Iran, a small flat parasite was removed from the anterior chamber angle of the left eye and it was identified as Fasciola hepatica.
Impaired reproductive function of male rats infected with Toxoplasma gondii
The results of the study showed sperm motility, viability and concentration rates were significantly decreased temporary after infection up to 70 days, suggesting that toxoplasmosis can cause impermanent impairment on the reproductive parameters of male rats.
