Modulatory agents derived from plants that have properties like scavenging of free radicals clearly have therapeutic potential against these diseases. The present study was aimed to(More)
A lamb ligated intestinal segment (LIS) test was adapted to determine the enterotoxigenicity of Escherichia coli isolates obtained from fecal and blood specimens from neonatal lambs with overt diarrheal disease. The lamb LIS was distended by 28 of 80 (37%) isolates from fecal specimens from 23 affected lambs. Enterotoxigenic E coli isolations were made from(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by the destruction of articular cartilage and bone in a chronic phase.

In our study, rheumatoid arthritis was induced in Wistar rats by intradermal injections of 100 μl of emulsion containing bovine type II(More)
Twenty-eight foals whose dams were treated IM with ivermectin (200 micrograms/kg of body weight) on the day of parturition were compared with 35 foals whose dams were administered only the vehicle. The effect of ivermectin on the vertical transmission of Strongyloides westeri and foal heat diarrhea was determined by a comparison of results obtained in the 2(More)
Six stallions were subjected to extensive cleansing of the penis and prepuce with water, Ivory Soap and water, or Betadine surgical scrub and water. The stallions were all washed for 14 days, and then allowed 14 days respite. This pattern of washing and resting was repeated consecutively. Swabs were taken from all 7 stallions twice weekly and semen was(More)
