North Sinai deserts were surveyed for the predominant plant cover and for the culturable bacteria nesting their roots and shoots. Among 43 plant species reported, 13 are perennial (e.g. Fagonia spp., Pancratium spp.) and 30 annuals (e.g. Bromus spp., Erodium spp.). Eleven species possessed rhizo-sheath, e.g. Cyperus capitatus, Panicum turgidum and… (More)
During a survey for helminth parasites among stray cats in Assiut area, microfilariae were detected. The morphology of the microfilarias was described.
A total of 200 patients with acute and chronic hepatic diseases and 100 apparently normal cross-matched controls were examined for the parasitic cause. The IHAT showed 3% had hydatid cysts, 3% had fascioliasis and 53.5% had schistosomiasis. However, no eggs were detected in the fascioliasis patients and only 4 & 3 cases showed S. mansoni and S. haematobium… (More)
Out of 150 Egyptian bats (Pipistrellus Kuhli) hunted in the premises of Sohag City, 60 (40%) were harbouring typanosomes of the subgenus Megatypanum (Hoare, 1964). They were T. M. heybergi (Rodhian, 1923), T. M. possoai (Dean and Sugary, 1963) and T. M. magadermae (Wenyon, 1990).
Fasciola and Schistosoma spp. are digenetic trematodes that have a major detrimental impact on human health worldwide. It is not unusual to find common molecules among parasites of different species, genera, or phyla. In this study Sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) was used to identify the common proteins of adult… (More)
