The purposes of this study were to investigate the levels of lactoferrin in 180 normal and 132 mastitic camel milk samples and to elucidate the effect of age, lactation stage, presence of pathogens, and somatic cell counts (SCC) on the concentration of lactoferrin in camel milk using radial immunodiffusion test. The mean log concentration of lactoferrin from mastitic camels (3.8 ± 0.67) was significantly higher than that in normal camels (2.65 ± 0.88). The mean log concentrations of lactoferrin… Expand

MILK LACTOFERRIN CONCENTRATIONS IN ANATOLIAN BUFFALOES
This study aimed to determine the lactoferrin concentration from healthy and subclinical mastitic buffaloes. Lactoferrin levels were determined in a total of 475 mammary quarter milk samples, 391 ofExpand
MOLECULAR DETECTION OF STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS ENTEROTOXINS ISOLATED FROM MASTITIC SHE-CAMELS
A total of 150 raw milk samples were collected from she camels from Aswan, 100 from individual breed in Daraw and 50 from pastoral camels in Shalateen in Egypt. First, clinical examination revealedExpand
Lactoferrin Concentration in Buffalo Milk
TLDR
This is the first investigation on the levels of Lfe in buffalo milk in reference to daily milk production, lactation stage, parity and SCC, and milk somatic cells count was significantly affected by SCC. Expand
Some Bacteriological and Immunological Studies on Camel’s Milk -
TLDR
The isolated bacteria from camel's milk with special milk constituents that have immunogenic and therapeutic importance to human consumers constitute health hazards for consumers and there is a great need for strict hygienic measures during the production and handling of camel milk. Expand
Camel Mastitis: A Review
TLDR
Economic importance of mastitis includes: loss of milk production and quality with less favorable features, reduction in milk price due to high SCC presence, milk loss because of antibiotic treatment, and veterinary care costs. Expand
The relationship between lactoferrin gene polymorphism and subclinical mastitis in Awassi ewes.
TLDR
Lactoferrin genotype AA could be associated with increased resistance to intramammary infections in Awassi sheep and the outcome of bacterial culture (growth or no growth). Expand
Detection of bactericidal activity of camel's milk compared with raw and processed cow's milk against pathogenic bacteria
TLDR
It can be concluded that milk can be used in vitro as a natural safe way to overcome some pathogenic bacteria instead of using antibiotics. Expand
Microbial safety of traditional camel milk products from North Eastern kenya and functional characterization of selected lactic acid bacteria
TLDR
The Suusac being sold at Eastleigh market in Nairobi from North Eastern Kenya may be responsible for transmission of these pathogens to the consumers and training on food hygiene, improving production technology, hygienic conditions and implementing the food legislations along the value chain can minimize the risk. Expand
Prevalence of Some Milk Borne Bacterial Pathogens Threatening Camel Milk Consumers in Egypt
TLDR
Investigation of the possibility of transmission of 3 milk borne pathogens including Salmonella spp. Expand
Microbial Quality and Safety of Traditional Fermented Camel Milk Product Suusac Sampled from Different Regions in North Eastern, Kenya
TLDR
The Suusac being sold at Eastleigh market in Nairobi from North Eastern Kenya may be responsible for transmission of the pathogens to the consumers and training on food hygiene, improving production technology, hygienic conditions and implementing the food legislations along the value chain can minimize the risk.

Lactoferrin Concentration in Milk of Bovine Clinical Mastitis
TLDR
The results suggest that the decreased levels of LF in peracute E. coli mastitis may be associated with the progress of inflammation in the early phase of mastitis. Expand
Lactoferrin concentrations in milk from normal and subclinical mastitic cows.
TLDR
The results showed that the milk Lf concentration (log) is associated with age of the dairy cow (one-way analysis of variance test, p<0.01) and the mean milk LF concentration ( log) in the latter lactational period tended to be higher than those in the peak and middle periods. Expand
Susceptibilities against bovine lactoferrin with microorganisms isolated from mastitic milk.
TLDR
Prototheca zopfii was highly sensitive to bovine lactoferrin and complete inhibition of this microorganism was observed even at the low concentration of 7 mug/ml, while E. coli and enterococci showed resistance against lact oferrin action and staphylococci showing strain-dependent resistance.

The efficacy of bovine lactoferrin in the treatment of cows with experimentally induced Escherichia coli mastitis.
TLDR
No statistically significant differences between treatment groups were observed in clinical signs such as rectal temperature, rumen motility and general attitude, but a trend for a more rapid elimination of bacteria was seen in the cows treated with enrofloxacin. Expand
Changes in lactoferrin, immunoglobulin G, bovine serum albumin, and alpha-lactalbumin during acute experimental and natural coliform mastitis in cows
An experimentally induced Escherichia coli infection of a bovine mammary gland resulted in a 30-fold increase in lactoferrin (Lf) concentration in the mammary secretion by 90 h postinoculation and aExpand
Lactoferrin research, technology and applications
TLDR
Basic research and technological aspects of the application of lactoferrin are reviewed, including anti-infective, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory effects, and its efficacy is being evaluated. Expand

Abstract Electrophoretic SDS-PAGE analysis of purified camel and bovine milk and blood serum proteins revealed different migration patterns and molecular weights. Camel blood serum was fractionatedExpand
Variation in antimicrobial activity of lactoferricin-derived peptides explained by structure modelling.
TLDR
The location of the beta-strand in relation to the positive charges seems to define the efficiency of the activity of the peptide and may explain the difference in activity obtained between HLP-2 and BLP-2. Expand

The authors concluded that very low SCC during the udder inflammation-free state are associated with increased risk of clinical mastitis. Expand
Antimicrobial peptide of korean native goat lactoferrin and identification of the part essential for this activity.
TLDR
The antimicrobial activity of lactoferrin isolated from Korean native goat (KN goat) milk was studied and its antimicrobial domain was identified using synthetic peptides and it was found that the part with the sequence RRMRK is the region most important for this activity. Expand
