Coccidiosis of domestic rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus) in Egypt: light microscopic study
This study is the first to report coccidia in domestic rabbits in Egypt and six species of Eimeria were reported for the first time.
A redescription of Haemogregarina damiettae Ramadan et al. 1996 naturally infecting the Acanthodactylus boskianus from Egypt, with new merognic data
Haemogregarina damiettae was previously described form Acanthodactylus boskianus in Egypt, and the description was base only on the blood stages with no data on the tissue stages. In the present
Redescription of Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 as Choleoeimeria zarudnyi n. comb. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae)
Based on the morphological features of the exogenous stages and the endogenous development of the present parasite, its generic affiliation is revised and Eimeriazarudnyi Alyousif & Al-Shawa, 2003 is transferred to the genus Choleoeimeria.
A New Sarcocystis Species (Apicomplexa: Sarcocystidae) from the Rock Gecko Bunopus tuberculatus in Saudi Arabia
This is the first description of a Sarcocystis species from this gecko, which was found in skeletal muscles of the tail and fore and hind limbs in 3 of 30 geckos in Saudi Arabia.
Anticoccidial activities of Chitosan on Eimeria papillata-infected mice
Chitosan showed anti-inflammatory and protective effects against E. papillata infection as indicated by a reduction in both oocyst output and in the number of parasite developmental stages following CS treatment.
Choleoeimeria saqanqouri sp. nov. (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) Infecting the Gallbladder of Scincus scincus scincus (Reptilia: Scincidae) from Egypt
Undescribed species of tetrasporocystic coccidia was found in the gallbladder of Scincus scincu scincus from South Sinai, Egypt and described as Choleoeimeria saqanqouri sp.n.
Ultrastructural and molecular characteristics of Kudoa crenimugilis n. sp. infecting intestinal smooth muscle of fringelip mullet Crenimugil crenilabis in the Red Sea.
The parasite had a significant histopathological impact since the developing plasmodia replaced normal muscle tissue and was associated with the myolysis of local muscle fibres and the inflammatory infiltration of lymphocytes and macrophages, confirming the evaluative association between Kudoa species infecting the same organs.
