Abstract:  One pregnant captive Irrawaddy dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris), with a body length of 225 cm, was found dead on 8 June 2009. The dolphin was anorexic and circling at the bottom of the pool before death. Laboratory tests revealed an increased leukocyte count and decreased platelet count; increased erythrocyte sedimentation rate; and slightly decreased red blood cell count, hemoglobin, and hematocrit. Alkaline phosphatase, creatinine, and glucose were significantly decreased. Moreover… 
Cutaneous nodules in Irrawaddy dolphins: an emerging disease in vulnerable populations.
TLDR
Cutaneous nodules in vulnerable populations of Irrawaddy dolphins Orcaella brevirostris from Malaysia, India, and Bangladesh were detected and consisted of thick collagen bundles covered by a moderately hyperplasic epithelium and were diagnosed as fibropapillomas.

The alpha C protein mediates internalization of group B Streptococcus within human cervical epithelial cells
TLDR
Findings suggest a role for the alpha C protein in interaction with epithelial surfaces and initiation of infection in Group B Streptococcus.
POOR PERINATAL OUTCOME ASSOCIATED WITH MATERNAL BRUCELLA ABORTUS INFECTION
Concentration-dependency of beta-lactam-induced filament formation in Gram-negative bacteria.
TLDR
The induction of filament production may lead to additional risks during empirical treatment of severe infections, and beta-lactam antibiotics with dose-related affinities for penicillin-binding protein (PBP)-3 and PBP-1 are investigated.
Evolution of the common cetacean highly repetitive DNA component and the systematic position of Orcaella brevirostris
TLDR
The phylogenetic information obtained in this study identified the Irrawaddy dolphin (Orcaella brevirostris) as a delphinid and did not support a close relationship of this species with the Monodontidae.
Evaluation of platelet count and its association with plateletcrit, mean platelet volume, and platelet size distribution width in a canine model of endotoxemia.
TLDR
Evaluating platelet count and its relations with platelet indices in a canine model of endotoxemia found potential value in the diagnosis and monitoring of dogs and humans with endot oxemia.
A survey on the faunal diversity of Savar Upazila, Dhaka, Bangladesh.
TLDR
Landfilling, deforestation, poaching, industrial effluents and current jal were identified as major threats to the faunal diversity of Savar area.
The oxidative effect of bacterial lipopolysaccharide on native and cross-linked human hemoglobin as a function of the structure of the lipopolysaccharide.
TLDR
The data suggest that the physiological effectiveness of hemoglobin solutions now being developed for clinical use may be decreased by the presence of lipopolysaccharide in the circulation of recipients.
Relative strength of the mitogenic and interleukin-2-production-inducing activities of staphylococcal exotoxins presumed to be causative exotoxins of toxic shock syndrome: toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 and enterotoxins A, B and C to murine and human T cells.
TLDR
Investigation of the activities of these four exotoxins to induce proliferation and interleukin 2 production in murine and human lymphocytes by using in vitro culture systems suggested that SEA, SEB and SEC are possibly involved as causative exOToxins in the development of the pathological changes observed in TSS.
