Molecular Detection and Characterization of Tick-borne Pathogens in Dogs and Ticks from Nigeria
The results of this study indicate that human and animal pathogens are abundant in dogs and their ticks in Nigeria and portray the potential high risk of human exposure to infection with these agents.

During their passage through the digestive tract of sterile grown maggots, the majority of E. coli was destroyed in the midgut, indicating that the feces were either sterile or contained only small numbers of bacteria.
Antibacterial substances of low molecular weight isolated from the blowfly, Lucilia sericata
All three molecules revealed antibacterial activity when tested against Micrococcus luteus and/or Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and the effect was even more pronounced when these molecules were tested in combination and caused lysis of these bacteria.
