Infestations with the poultry red mite Dermanyssus gallinae represent a major ectoparasite problem in poultry and affects egg and meat production worldwide. The effects of the neem seed product Mite-Stop® against the red poultry mite were investigated. Five primitive poultry farms in two small villages in the Nile Delta and Giza district were selected for(More)
Five new myxosporean species belonging to three different genera were described from the Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in Bahr Shebin, Nile Tributary, Nile Delta, Egypt. These species are: Zschokkella nilei sp. n., Ortholinea africanus sp. n., Triangula egyptica sp. n., Myxobolus fomenai sp. n., and Myxobolus branchiophilus sp. n. Morphometry, light(More)
It is difficult to stop lice propagation just by treating infested heads, since reinfections are possible just a few hours after a successful elimination of all lice from a child’s head by application of an active anti-louse product. Therefore, several products have been developed that claim to have a louse repellent activity; however, definite proofs are(More)
It is well known that chronic exposure to lead (Pb+2) alters a variety of behavioral tasks in rats and mice. Here, we investigated the effect of flaxseed oil (1,000 mg/kg) on lead acetate (20 mg/kg)-induced brain oxidative stress and neurotoxicity in rats. The levels of Pb+2, lipid peroxidation, nitric oxide (NO), and reduced glutathione (GSH) and the(More)
The present study deals with Berlin strains of Histomonas meleagridis, the specimens of which were cultivated in Dwyer’s medium. The light and electron microscopic examination revealed that the cultivated trophozoite stages (reaching about 10 μm in size) appeared more or less spherical, although their surface (covered by a single membrane) showed(More)
Lead is a persistent environmental pollutant, and its toxicity continues to be a major health problem due to its interference with natural environment. In the present study, we have evaluated the effect of flaxseed oil on lead acetate-mediated hepatic oxidative stress and toxicity in rats. Lead acetate enhanced lipid peroxidation and nitric oxide production(More)
In the present study, the efficacy of water-free neem seed extract shampoo Wash Away Louse®, provided by Alpha-Biocare GmbH, Düsseldorf (Germany), was investigated against Sarcoptes scabiei infesting dogs in Egypt. Ten naturally infested dogs were collected from different areas in the Nile delta. The occurrence of lesions, hair loss, and skin inflammation(More)
The paper reports the first detection of besnoitiosis of cattle in Germany. Just 2 years after the first appearance of the African Bluetongue disease (BTD) of cattle in Central Europe, another African agent of disease has arrived in Germany. While it was proven that the BTD virus was transmitted (after its first appearance) by endemic midges of the genus(More)
Histomonas meleagridis is a 10–20 μm-sized flagellated protozoan, causing histomoniasis in gallinaceous birds. Different strains of H. meleagridis from different origins were used to establish clonal cultures, which can be traced back to a single cell. Cells from these clonal cultures were examined by transmission electron microscopy. Results gave detailed(More)
Dogs infested with lice belonging either to the group of Mallophaga (hairlings, i.e., Trichodectes canis) or Anoplura (bloodsucking lice, e.g., Linognathus setosus) were washed with the neem seed preparations MiteStop® or Wash Away Dog. It was found that a single treatment with one of these products killed both motile stages and those developing inside eggs(More)
