Compatibility of Biomphalaria alexandrina, Biomphalaria glabrata and a hybrid of both to seven strains of Schistosoma mansoni from Egypt.
Each of the three studied Biomphalaria snails had different rates of infection and different values of total periodic cercarial production with various strains of S. mansoni, and the longevity of cercariae-shedding B. glabrata and the hybrid snails was much longer than that of B. alexandrina.

Observations on Sudanese camel nasal myiasis caused by the larvae of Cephalopina titillator.
Bacteriological examinations revealed the presence of Pasteurella haemolytica and Klebsiella ozaenae as possible causes of pneumonia, and Corynebacterium species which could possibly cause pyogenic infections locally. Expand
Biomphalaria glabrata: a new threat for schistosomiasis transmission in Egypt.
This is the first report on the infestation of irrigation and drainage systems at Giza, Qalyoubiya and Kafr El Shiekh Governorates, with Biomphalaria glabrata (the snail host of Schistosoma mansoniExpand
The first record of Angiostrongylus cantonensis from Egypt.
A survey of eight species of freshwater gastropods collected from natural water courses and of three species of wild rats caught from the same areas revealed respectively, that the ampullarid snail Lanistes carinatus acts as the intermediate host transmitting this parasite, and that the rat Rattus norvegicus is its definitive host.

Microscopic and Molecular Detection of Camel Piroplasmosis in Gadarif State, Sudan
The presence of piroplasmosis in camels from the Eastern region of the Sudan is confirmed using microscopical (blood film) and molecular technique (PCR) and PCR technique showed higher sensitivity than microscopy. Expand
Invasion of the Nile Valley in Egypt by a hybrid of Biomphalaria glabrata and Biomphalaria alexandrina, snail vectors of Schistosoma mansoni.
The hybrid snail was found naturally infected with S. mansoni thus giving indication that it is presently participating in schistosomiasis mansoni transmission in Egypt. Expand
Inhibitory Effect of Mediterranean Sage and Rosemary on Clinical and Community Isolates of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus
The potential therapeutic implications of the ethanol extract from Rosemary and Mediterranean sage in the treatment of MRSA infections are suggested and showed antagonistic effect on MRSA strains. Expand
Progress towards implementation of ACT malaria case-management in public health facilities in the Republic of Sudan: a cluster-sample survey
The national scale-up of diagnostics should present an opportunity not only to expand existing testing capacities but also to implement effective support interventions to bridge the health systems gaps and support corrective case-management measures, including the discontinuation of artemether monotherapy treatment.

Rare occurrence of mupirocin resistance among clinical Staphylococcus isolates in Jordan.
Molecular typing by Eric-PCR method revealed heterogenicity of the genetic make up of the MupL and MupH strains, which indicates that staphylococci with MupA-carrying genes are present in Jordanian hospitals, but thank to the limited use of mupirocin, they remain rare. Expand
Despite the diagnostic and preventive advances resulting from extensive research and a greater understanding of the disease, babesiosis continues to have significant medical impact as a confounding variable in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme disease and as a potential threat to the blood supply, especially in the United States.
