2 Abstract: The experiment was carried out on 90 apparently healthy parasite free 80-100 g catfish (Clarias gariepinus), used for determining the immune response of ich infected fish, they were divided into 6 groups of 15 fish each, 1 group is naive fish (control negative), the 2 group I/P injected with excised skin st nd 
The main diseases of African clary catfish when grown in closed water supply installation and cage farms
In this paper, an analysis of the literature on the diseases of Clarias catfish (Clarias gariepinus) carried out. The main bacterial, parasitological and viral diseases that are characteristic of theExpand
Occurrence of Ichthyophthiriasis in Pangasianodon hypophthalmus (Sauvage, 1878) Cultured in Net-Cages of Maithon Reservoir, Jharkhand, India
TLDR
The outbreak of ichthyophthiriasis resulting from I. multifiliis infection might be associated with lowered water temperature during January and February 2015, which leads to death of the infected fish species. Expand
Incidence of White Spot Disease in Freshwater Ornamental Fishes imported to Pakistan
TLDR
The variable infection rate and mean intensity in these four fish types indicates that, there is probably more than one strain of I. multifiliis which differs in its pathogenicity and virulence to different varieties of goldfish. Expand
Influence of Garlic (Allium sativum) and Mother worth (Matricaria chamomilla) Extract on Ichthyophtirius multifilus Parasite Treatment in Sail Fin Molly (Poecilia latipinna) Ornamental Fish
TLDR
Herbal extract can be noted as safe and optional chemicals to treat fish ectoparasites, Ichthyophtirius multifilus instead of chemical medicine like formalin which are eventually harmful to consumers and environment. Expand
Protection of goldfish (Carassius auratus) against Ichthyophthirius multifiliis by immunization with live theronts, trophonts and sonicated trophonts.
TLDR
There was a positive correlation between higher levels of anti - Ich antibodies and host survival in the immunized fish. Expand
Essential oils to control ichthyophthiriasis in pacu, Piaractus mesopotamicus (Holmberg): special emphasis on treatment with Melaleuca alternifolia.
TLDR
The in vitro results demonstrated that all tested EOs showed a cytotoxic effect against I. multifiliis compared to control groups, and the potential positive effect of M. alternifolia EO against two emergent opportunistic bacteria in South America Edwardsiella tarda and Citrobacter freundii was discussed. Expand
Evaluation of salinomycin isolated from Streptomyces albus JSY-2 against the ciliate, Ichthyophthirius multifiliis
TLDR
In vivo test demonstrated that the number of I. multifiliis trophonts on Erythroculter ilishaeformis treated with SAL was markedly lower than that of control group at 10 days after exposed to theronts (P < 0.05), and in vitro antiparasitic assays revealed that SAL could be 100% effective against I.Multifunctionalis. Expand
Nano formulations as curative and protective agent for fish diseases: Studies on red spot and white spot diseases of ornamental gold fish Carassius auratus
TLDR
The fishes showed immediate cure from infection and the infection was not observed for more than one year till the death of the fish and hence a one time dose may give life long protection at very low concentration (10ng/g body weight) by simple bathing method. Expand
Antiparasitic efficacy of dihydrosanguinarine and dihydrochelerythrine from Macleaya microcarpa against Ichthyophthirius multifiliis in richadsin (Squaliobarbus curriculus).
TLDR
Investigation of the antiparasitic activity of crude extracts and pure compounds from the leaves of Macleaya microcarpa revealed that dihydrosanguinarine and dihydrochelerythrine were effective against I. multifiliis, a holotrichous protozoan that invades the gills and skin surfaces of fish and can cause morbidity and high mortality in most species of freshwater fish worldwide. Expand
Serum adenosine deaminase and xanthine oxidase activities in silver catfish naturally infected with Ichthyophthirius multifiliis: The influence of these enzymes on inflammatory and oxidative status.
TLDR
The most important finding is that upregulation of seric XO activity leads to an excessive formation of uric acid, which contributes to oxidative and inflammatory processes. Expand

Immunization of rainbow trout fry with Ichthyophthirius multifiliis sonicate: protection of host and immunological changes
TLDR
Challenges 22 days after immunization with sonicated formalin-killed trophonts of the fish parasitic ciliate Ichthyophthirius multifiliis showed a relative protection represented by significantly fewer established parasites and lower prevalence in the immunized groups compared to the controls. Expand
Protection of goldfish against some common ectoparasitic protozoans using Ichthyophthirius multifiliis and Tetrahymena pyriformis for vaccination
TLDR
Goldfish vaccinated with live tomites of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis and Tetrahymena pyriformis developed protective immunity not only against the I. multifili is but also towards other ectoparasitic protozoans which are commonly found in the tropics. Expand
Ichthyophthiriasis in carp, Cyprinus carpio L.: fate of parasites in immunized fish
TLDR
Differences in the response to parasite exit from immunized and previously unexposed control fish skin are discussed, with particular reference to the mode of protection and the fate of parasites encountering immune fish. Expand
Immunization of channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus Rafinesque, against Ichthyophthirius multifiliis (Fouquet): killed versus live vaccines
TLDR
The response of fish vaccinated with live parasites indicates that animals injected intraperitoneally can develop surface immunity and that i.p. injeetion is a suitable route of administratio n for potential /. Expand
Acquired resistance of black mollies Poecilia latipinna to infection by Ichthyophthirius multifiliis.
TLDR
Incomplete resistance to infection was established, the degree of which did not depend on the intensity of the initial infection; resistance was maintained for longer periods, however, by those fish with higher initial levels of infection. Expand
Partial cross protection against Ichthyophthirius multifiliis in Gyrodactylus derjavini immunized rainbow trout.
TLDR
Fish partly immune to the ectoparasitic monogenean G. derjavini became less infected and experienced lower mortality than naive fish when exposed to I. multifiliis infections, suggesting that non-specific factors including complement could be partly responsible for the host response against infections with this ciliate. Expand
Antibody-mediated effects on parasite behavior: Evidence of a novel mechanism of immunity against a parasitic protist.
The parasitic ciliate Ichthyophthirius multifiliis is well known in commercial aquaculture as the etiological agent of 'white spot', a disease that afflicts a wide range of fresh-water fish. WhileExpand
Passive immunization of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) against the ciliated protozoan parasite Ichthyophthirius multifiliis by use of murine monoclonal antibodies
TLDR
Antibodies against these proteins immobilize the parasite in vitro, suggesting a potential role for the i-antigens in protective immunity in fish, and for the development of a vaccine against I. multifiliis. Expand
Sustained growth of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis at low temperature in the laboratory.
TLDR
Low-temperature growth is proposed as an improved method for stable maintenance of I. multifiliis cultures in the laboratory, with no discernible changes in viability, antigenicity, or infectivity. Expand
The Early Development of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis in Channel Catfish in Vitro
TLDR
Ex vivo conditions suitable for studying early trophont development in excised tissues of channel catfish Ictalurus punctatus within the first 48 h are established and infection and shape transformation of the theronts were not observed on BF-2 cells. Expand
