Anaemia in Anaemia in Clostridium chauvoei Clostridium chauvoei infection is masked by infection is masked by haemoconcentration haemoconcentration Anaemia in Clostridium Clostridium chauvoei chauvoei infection is masked by haemoconcentration. infection is masked by haemoconcentration. ABSTRACT Haemoconcentration has been reported in blackleg, but the exact(More)
The role of the vagus nerve and cholinergic mechanisms in the control of the rat gastric mucin and protein (PROT) release in vivo was investigated. Under urethane anaesthesia (1.25 g kg(-1)), the rats had their gastric lumen perfused with saline. Mucus secretion was measured as a function of adherent mucus on the mucosa surface and the luminal content of(More)
The antimalarial effect of the ethanolic stem bark extract of Ficus platyphylla Del was evaluated against Plasmodium berghei infection in mice. Nontreated, experimental control mice died of fulminant parasitemia from day 7 to 9 post-infection but mice treated with the extract at 300 mg/kg showed markedly reduced parasitaemia bouts of 43.50% and a mean(More)
A total of two hundred samples from dialysed neuraminidase of Newcastle disease virus (NDV) Kudu 113 strain were used for the experiment. Fifty samples each were used for various concentrations of paranitrophenyl oxamic acid (PNPO), salicyl oxamic acid (SOA), silver nitrate (AgNO 3) and ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA), to test their inhibition(More)
BACKGROUND Chicken is fast becoming the world's most consumed meat. As a consequence poultry health is more important now than ever before, with pathogens of chickens recognised as serious threats to food security. One such threat are Eimeria species parasites, protozoa which can cause the disease coccidiosis. Eimeria can compromise economic poultry(More)
Human activities such as burning of fossil fuels play a role in upsetting a previously more balanced and harmonious ecosystem. Climate change-a significant variation in the usual pattern of Earth's average weather conditions is a product of this ecosystem imbalance, and the rise in the Earth's average temperature (global warming) is a prominent evidence.(More)
Isolation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) is fraught with challenges including, but not limited to, the cost of limited gradients available for the isolation of PBMCs. Glycerol gradient (1.077 g/ml) was used to isolate PBMCs from adult peripheral blood. The differentiation potential of the isolated cells was assessed by culturing the cells in(More)

ABSTRACT ABSTRACT The mechanisms by which blackleg occur need to be thoroughly investigated for effective treatment, The mechanisms by which blackleg occur(More)
