The results indicate that PCR with the primer pair Np21/Np6 could provide an efficient tool for large-scale epidemiological studies using brain tissue obtained at necropsy.

The identification of five candidate vaccine antigens that are the targets of MHC class I-restricted CD8(+) CTL from immune cattle provide a basis for developing a CTL-targeted anti-East Coast fever subunit vaccine and orthologs of these antigen may be vaccine targets for other apicomplexan parasites.
Resistance to cerebral malaria in tumor necrosis factor-alpha/beta-deficient mice is associated with a reduction of intercellular adhesion molecule-1 up-regulation and T helper type 1 response.

TNF apparently is required for PbA-induced endothelial ICAM-1 up-regulation and subsequent microvascular pathology resulting in fatal CM, and in the absence of TNF, IC AM-1 and nitric oxide up- regulation are reduced, and P bA infection fails to cause fatal CM.

A natural reassortant HPAI (H5N1) virus containing a H9N2-PB1 gene in poultry in Bangladesh is identified, highlighting the risks for prolonged co-circulation of avian influenza viruses and the need to monitor their evolution.

A Retrospective Study on the Epidemiology of Anthrax, Foot and Mouth Disease, Haemorrhagic Septicaemia, Peste des Petits Ruminants and Rabies in Bangladesh, 2010-2012
The findings of this study can be used in the formulation of more effective disease management and control strategies, including appropriate vaccination policies in Bangladesh.

Given that the coverage in many neighborhoods was below the WHO-recommended threshold level of 70% for rabies eradications and since the CNVR program takes considerable time to implement throughout the entire Dhaka City area, a mass dog vaccination program in the non-CNVR coverage area is recommended to create herd immunity.
A large-scale study of a poultry trading network in Bangladesh: implications for control and surveillance of avian influenza viruses
- N. Moyen, G. Ahmed, G. Fournié

Poultry types need to be discriminated in order to understand the way in which poultry trading networks are shaped, and the level of risk of disease spread that these networks may promote.
Discrimination of Neospora caninum from Toxoplasma gondii and other apicomplexan parasites by hybridization and PCR.

- 1 August 1996
A molecular tool capable of discriminating between the two parasites was developed and dual PCR with primer pairs specific for N. caninum and T. gondii allowed the detection of either parasite in mixed samples.

Identifying the epitopes recognized in six T. parva-immune cattle of different major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genotypes demonstrated that the identified antigens are inherently dominant in animals with the corresponding MHC genotypes.
