PREVALENCE OF ENDOPARASITES IN HORSES AND DONKEYS IN TURKEY
The endoparasites of horses and donkeys of different ages from the Konya region in Turkey, between May 2003 and June 2005 were determined and Parasites were encountered in 100% of animals.
CHANGES IN SELECTED SERUM COMPONENTS IN CATTLE NATURALLY INFECTED WITH THEILERIA ANNULATA
Changes in selected serum components were investigated to elucidate metabolic profile in cattle naturally infected with T. annulata and it has shown that T.annulata infection in cattle is associated with profound biochemical changes.
Haematological and Coagulation Profiles during Severe Tropical Theileriosis in Cattle
Observations revealed that T. annulata infection in cattle is associated with marked changes in haematological and coagulation parameters.
Prevalence and intensity of Oestrus ovis in Akkaraman sheep in the Konya region of Turkey
Slaughterhouse surveys to determine the prevalence and intensity of larval Oestrus ovis Linnaeus (Diptera: Oestridae) in sheep, were conducted monthly for 1 year in Konya, Turkey, and found that the infestation rate was higher in 4–6‐year‐old sheep, at 72.6%.
Chewing lice (Phthiraptera) found on wild birds in Turkey.
Eleven out of totally 31 bird specimens belonging to 23 bird species which were injured or died were found to be infested with at least one chewing louse species, and eighteen lice species were found belonging to 16 genera on infested birds.
Description of breeding sites of Culicoides species (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) in Turkey.
The aim of this study was to describe the breeding sites of Culicoides species in Konya province, Turkey and it was observed that C. circumscriptus, C. festivipennis and C. shaklawensis preferred mud rich in organic matters near the water reservoirs.
Myiasis in animals and humanbeings in Turkey.
Five species; Wohlfahrtia magnifica, Sarcophaga haemorrhoidalis, Lucilia sericata, Calliphora vicina and Eristalis tenax were identified as etiological agent of the myiasis in Turkey between 2006 and 2010.
RNA-transfection of γ/δ T cells with a chimeric antigen receptor or an α/β T-cell receptor: a safer alternative to genetically engineered α/β T cells for the immunotherapy of melanoma
A protocol adaptable to GMP for the expansion of γ/δ T cells and their subsequent RNA-transfection with tumor-specific TCRs or CARs is presented, which may represent a safer complementation to genetically engineered conventional T cells in the immunotherapy of melanoma.
