INTRODUCTION To determine seroprevalence and risks factors for T. gondii in women with early miscarriage, Sera of 76 women were analyzed infection by indirect enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Seropositive cases were further examined histopathologically for evidence of Toxoplasma gondii organisms. MATERIAL AND METHODS Demographic data were(More)
Subclinical infection of chicken anemia virus (CAV) at 4 to 6 weeks of age, after maternal antibodies have waned, is implicated in several field problems in broiler flocks. In order to understand the pathogenesis of subclinical infection with CAV, an immunopathological study of CAV-inoculated 4-week-old SPF chickens was performed. Sixty 4-week-old SPF(More)
In the winter of 2010-2011, an outbreak of highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAIV) infection occurred in wild and domestic birds in Japan. Tufted ducks were found dead in an urban area of Toyota City, Koriyama, Fukushima Prefecture. Two tufted ducks were examined histopathologically, immunohistochemically and molecularly. Gross findings included(More)
Hydatid disease is a re-emerging disease that infects human and animals world-wide. Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) is the most common form of the disease. In Egypt, CE is an endemic disease and several reports have indicated an increasing prevalence rate of the CE infection in animals and humans in the last few years. The aim of the current study is to(More)
Bioactive peptides such as bradykinin potentiating factor (BPF), have, anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory and ameliorative effects in chronic diseases and play a potential role in cancer prevention. It is known that the liver and kidney accumulate inorganic mercury upon exposure, which often leads to mercury intoxication in these organs. In(More)
We investigated the immunomodulatory and parasiticidal effects of garlic extract on coccidiosis caused by Eimeria vermiformis infection in male ICR mice. One group received garlic extract daily until the end of the experiment by the oral route from 10 days prior to oral infection with 300 sporulated E. vermiformis oocysts (infected-garlic+). The other group(More)
A three-and-a-half year-old female Rahmani ewe was presented suffering from nervous symptoms. Grossly, a large cyst measuring 7 × 4 cm and weighing 145 g occupied the dilated left lateral ventricle. The overlying cerebral tissue was thin, atrophied and congested. It tore easily, and the cyst was evacuated spontaneously. Microscopically, liquefactive(More)
Chicken anaemia virus (CAV) is the most important confounding pathogen in Marek's disease virus (MDV) infection. The effect of CAV co-infection at 4 weeks of age after inoculation of virulent MDV (vMDV, KS strain) or very virulent MDV (vvMDV, Md/5 strain) in 1-day-old chicks was investigated by pathological and immunohistochemical studies. CAV increased the(More)
Lead is a heavy toxic metal widely distributed in the environment. Lead exposure in Egypt remains a health challenge among children and among traffic controllers, and is manifested by anemia and poor performance. Recently, natural herbs are believed to protect the body against lead-induced hepato- and nephrotoxicity. Garlic extract, calcium carbonate, and(More)
The pathogenesis of the co-infection of CAV to MDV is complicated. In order to investigate the impact of CAV on the transformation phase of MD, MDV and, subsequently, CAV, were inoculated at 1day and 4weeks of age, respectively. Chickens were divided into six groups; vvMDV, vvMDV-CAV, vMDV, vMDV-CAV, CAV and a control group. The CAV inclusions and antigens(More)
