First report of a ranavirus associated with morbidity and mortality in farmed Chinese giant salamanders (Andrias davidianus).
The virus, provisionally designated as Chinese giant salamander virus (CGSV), was isolated from tissue homogenates of diseased salamanders following inoculation of epithelioma papilloma cyprini cells and Sequence analysis of the MCP genes showed that the isolated virus was a ranavirus with marked sequence identity to other members of the genus Ranavirus.

This is the first report of S. agalactiae as a pathogen of ya-fish, and the virulence tests were conducted by intraperitoneal injection of the isolated strain GY101 in ya- fish, crucian carp and the Nile tilapia.
Outbreaks of vibriosis associated with Vibrio mimicus in freshwater catfish in China
The results of this investigation indicate that V. mimicus was the causative agent of the natural epizootic in freshwater catfish and is the first report of Vibrio mimicus infection associated with mass mortality in freshwaterCatfish.
Isolation and characterization of Streptococcus agalactiae from Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in China
Characteristics based on morphological, physiological and biochemical tests show that the eight strains isolated from the outbreak epidemical diseased tilapias from Hainan Province, China were suggested to Streptococcus agalactiae, which hinted that the species had become an important potential bacterial agent of tilapia in the south of China.
Plant polysaccharides used as immunostimulants enhance innate immune response and disease resistance against Aeromonas hydrophila infection in fish.
The results suggest that FCPS, RIPS, and SCPS used as immunostimulants are capable of enhancing immune responses and disease resistance against A. hydrophila in crucian carp, and thatFCPS was the most effective.
Effect of selenium supplementation on aflatoxin B₁-induced histopathological lesions and apoptosis in bursa of Fabricius in broilers.
The results indicate that sodium selenite in diet can protect chicken from AFB 1-induced impairment of humoral immune function by reducing bursal histopathological lesions and percentages of apoptotic bursAL cells.
Effects of Sodium Selenite on Aflatoxin B1-Induced Decrease of Ileac T cell and the mRNA Contents of IL-2, IL-6, and TNF-α in Broilers
It was concluded that 0.3 mg/kg AFB1 could reduce the cellular immune function of the ileum mucosa, but 0.4  mg/kg supplemented dietary selenium showed protective effects on AFB1-induced immunologic injury.
Effects of Dietary Selenium on Histopathological Changes and T Cells of Spleen in Broilers Exposed to Aflatoxin B1
Sodium selenite could improve the cellular immune function impaired by AFB1 through increasing the relative weight of spleen and percentages of splenic T cell subsets, and alleviating histopathological spleen damage.
The mitochondrial and death receptor pathways involved in the thymocytes apoptosis induced by aflatoxin B1
This is the first study to demonstrate that mitochondrial and death receptor pathways involved in AFB1 induced thymocytes apoptosis in broilers.
Hepatoprotective potential of isoquercitrin against type 2 diabetes-induced hepatic injury in rats
Results indicated that treatment with isoquercitrin protects against hepatic injury by T2DM, and shows a dose dependent effect on histology and hepatocytes.
