Eimeria spp. multiply within the intestinal tract causing severe inflammatory responses. Chitosan (CS), meanwhile, has been shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory activities in different experimental models. Here, we investigated the effect of CS on the outcome of inflammation caused by Eimeria papillata in the mouse intestine. Investigations were undertaken into the oocyst output in feces and developmental stages and goblet cells in intestinal tissue. Assays for lipid peroxidation, nitric oxide… 
Modulation of murine intestinal immunity by Moringa oleifera extract in experimental hymenolepiasis nana
MOE could achieve protection against H. nana infections through decreased TGF-β, IFN-γ and MMC counts versus increased GC counts, T-helper cell type 2 (Th2) cytokines and IgA level.
Immunoprotective Effect of Chitosan Particles on Hymenolepis nana – Infected Mice
Investigation of the potential effect of chitosan particles (CSP) to enhance the immune system against H. nana infection indicated induced reductions in adult worm and egg counts in infected mice after CSP treatment, which could indicate the immunoprotective effect of CSP.
Anticoccidial and Antioxidant Activities of Moringa oleifera Leaf Extract on Murine Intestinal Eimeriosis
It is shown that moringa leaf extract has anticoccidial, anti-oxidant and anti-apoptotic activities in mice infected with Eimeria papillata, and this study evidenced that MLE reduced oxidative damage by decreasing TBARS and iNOS expression, and increasing the GSH and GPX levels.
A multiepitope vaccine encoding four Eimeria epitopes with PLGA nanospheres: a novel vaccine candidate against coccidiosis in laying chickens
The results suggested that the intramucosal route with PLGA nanospheres containing 300 μg of NSLC protein was the most efficient approach to induce protective immunity against the four Eimeria species and PLGAnanospheres loaded with NSLC antigens are potential vaccine candidates against avian coccidiosis.
Influence of Moringa oleifera extract, vitamin C, and sodium bicarbonate on heat stress-induced HSP70 expression and cellular immune response in rabbits
MOE, Vit C, and NaHCO3 can be added to rabbit diets for the amelioration of HS-induced symptoms, and all treatments reversed the effects of HS significantly.
Em14-3-3 delivered by PLGA and chitosan nanoparticles conferred improved protection in chicken against Eimeria maxima
PLGA NPs might be an efficient antigen carrier system (Em14-3-3) to act as a nanosubunit vaccine that can improve protective efficacies in chicken against E. maxima challenge.


Antioxidant and Anti-Inflammatory Activities of Pomegranate (Punica granatum) on Eimeria papillata-Induced Infection in Mice
Investigation of the effects of pomegranate peel extract (PPE) on the outcome of coccidiosis caused by Eimeria papillata in mice showed that PPE treatment significantly attenuated inflammation and injury of the jejunum induced by E. papillATA infections.
The potential role of Phoenix dactylifera on Eimeria papillata-induced infection in mice
It can be hypothesized that date fruit can protect against coccidiosis-induced infection, and this hypothesis can be revealed by the anti-inflammatory activity of date protecting host tissue from injuries induced by the parasite, and hence it is recommended to be used as an excellent food additive.
Protective effect of Azadirachta indica extract against Eimeria papillata-induced coccidiosis
It is revealed that neem as a natural product has protective effects against E. papillata-induced coccidiosis in poultry and induced marked improvements in all of the studied parameters as well as the histopathological features of the jejunum.
Intestinal Intraepithelial Lymphocytes Sustain the Epithelial Barrier Function against Eimeria vermiformis Infection
Results suggest that IEL play important multifunctional roles not only in protection of the epithelium against E. vermiformis-induced change by cytokine production but also in direct interaction with the epithelial barrier when intra-EC junctions are down-regulated.
Immunomodulatory and antiparasitic effects of garlic extract on Eimeria vermiformis-infected mice
Histopathological, immunohistochemical, and gene expression analysis for inflammatory cytokines in ileal tissues showed that the garlic extract treatment impaired intracellular development of E. vermiformis during the early stages by increasing the number of intraepithelial CD8+ T cells and decreasing IL-10 expression.
Murine goblet cell hypoplasia during Eimeria pragensis infection is ameliorated by clindamycin treatment.
The goblet cell (GC) and the intestinal mucus are important in preventing invasion of the mucosa by luminal microorgansisms and recovery of GC numbers was associated with resolution of coccidial infection.
Anti-Eimeria activity of berberine and identification of associated gene expression changes in the mouse jejunum infected with Eimeria papillata
The data suggest that berberine induces hosts to exert anti-Eimeria activity by attenuating the inflammatory and oxidative stress response, by impairing apoptotic processes, and by activating local innate immune responses and epigenetic mechanisms in the host jejunum.
Cytokines and immunological control of Eimeria spp.
Differential miRNA expression in the mouse jejunum during garlic treatment of Eimeria papillata infections
The data indicate that the anti-coccidial activity of garlic is associated with specific changes in the miRNA signature of the mouse jejunum, which may reflect an involvement of miRNAs in garlic-activated pathways to reduce and/or to repair E. papillata-induced tissue injuries.
