Monoclonal antibody against recombinant Fasciola gigantica cathepsin L1H could detect juvenile and adult cathepsin Ls of Fasciola gigantica.
Cathepsin Ls (CatLs), the major cysteine protease secreted by Fasciola spp., are important for parasite digestion and tissue invasion. Fasciola gigantica cathepsin L1H (FgCatL1H) is the isotype expressed in the early stages for migration and invasion. In the present study, a monoclonal antibody (MoA...
In vivo antimalarial evaluation of MAMA decoction on Plasmodium berghei in mice.
The use of decoctions of different plant materials is common practice in antimalarial ethnomedicine in Africa. Scientific evaluation of such herbal combinations to verify the claims is important. The study has evaluated the antimalarial efficacy of MAMA decoction (MD), a multicomponent herbal prepar...
MOLECULAR SURVEY OF APICOMPLEXA IN PODARCIS WALL LIZARDS DETECTS HEPATOZOON, SARCOCYSTIS AND EIMERIA SPECIES.
Abstract The occurrence of Apicomplexan parasites in Podarcis wall lizards from the Iberian Peninsula and Balearic islands was studied by amplification and sequencing of the 18S rRNA gene. Species from three genera, Hepatozoon, Sarcocystis and Eimeria were detected. The phylogeneti...

Abnormalities on cephalic hooklets of advanced third-stage larvae from Gnathostoma Owen, 1836 (Nematoda: Gnathostomidae) collected from Mexi...
Morphological abnormalities were observed on the cephalic bulb hooklets of advanced third-stage larvae (AdvL(3)) of genus Gnathostoma. The larvae were obtained from the fish "Mexican rivulus" Millerichthys robustus collected from a seasonal pond near Tlacotalpan, Veracruz, Mexico. The abnormalities...
Helminth parasites from the stomach of conger eel, Conger conger, from Madeira Island, Atlantic Ocean.
Geographic variations in the diversity and prevalence of helminth parasites of fish can provide important clues as to the relatedness of fish populations. In the present work, the stomachs of 64 conger eels, Conger conger, collected during 1999 and 2000, were examined for the presence of parasites....

TRYPANOSOMA CF.VARANI IN AN IMPORTED BALL PYTHON (PYTHON REGINUS) FROM GHANA.
Peripheral blood from a ball python (Python reginus) imported from Ghana was cultured in Barbour-Stoenner-Kelly (BSK) medium for Borrelia spp. isolation, resulting in the prominent appearance of free, and clusters of, trypanosomes in a variety of morphological forms. The molecular ph...
Control of Coccidiosis due to Eimeria bovis and Eimeria zuernii in Calves with Toltrazuril under Field Conditions in Comparison with Diclazu...
I (57 animals) received 15 mg toltrazuril per kg body weight, group II (54 animals) 1 mg diclazuril per kg body weight and group III (53 animals) served as shamtreated controls. The assessment of efficacy was based on oocyst excretion of E. bovis and E. zuernii (opg) throughout the study (three to f...
