Early Detection of Toxoplasma gondii Infection In Mongolian Gerbil By Quantitative Real-Time PCR.

J Parasitol 2019 02;105(1):52-57

2   Department of Immunity and Biochemistry, Institute of Parasitic Disease, Zhejiang Academy of Medical Sciences, Hangzhou, 310013, China.

Toxoplasmosis, caused by Toxoplasma gondii, is associated with several clinical syndromes, including encephalitis, chorioretinitis, and congenital infection. Toxoplasma gondii is a ubiquitous apicomplexan parasite found in both humans and animals. Mongolian gerbils, which are more susceptible to both high- and low-virulence Toxoplasma strains compared with mice, are considered useful models for assessing diagnosis and treatment methods for toxoplasmosis, as well as infection by and host defense to this organism.

Metal nanoparticles restrict the growth of protozoan parasites.

Artif Cells Nanomed Biotechnol 2018 22;46(sup3):S86-S94. Epub 2018 Jul 22.

b National Research Center for Protozoan Diseases, Obihiro University of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine , Obihiro , Hokkaido , Japan.

The Trypanosoma and Toxoplasma spp, are etiological agents of diseases capable of causing significant morbidity, mortality and economic burden, predominantly in developing countries. Currently, there are no effective vaccines for the diseases caused by these parasites; therefore, therapy relies heavily on antiprotozoal drugs. However, the treatment options for these parasitic diseases are limited, thus underscoring the need for new anti-protozoal agents. Read More

Parasitic diseases of camels in Iran (1931-2017) - a literature review.

Parasite 2017 15;24:21. Epub 2017 Jun 15.

Institute of Parasitology, Department of Pathobiology, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Veterinaerplatz 1, 1210 Vienna, Austria.

Parasitic diseases of camels are major causes of impaired milk and meat production, decreases in performance or even death. Some camel parasites also represent a threat to human health. About 171,500 one-humped camels (Camelus dromedarius) and 100-300 two-humped camels (Camelus bactrianus) live in Iran. Read More

The common zoonotic protozoal diseases causing abortion.

J Parasit Dis 2016 Dec 14;40(4):1116-1129. Epub 2015 Mar 14.

Veterinary Research Division, Department of Zoonosis, National Research Center, El-Tahrir Street, Dokki, Post Box: 12622, Giza, Egypt.

Toxoplasmosis, neosporosis, sarcosporidiosis (sarcocystosis) and trypanosomiasis are the common zoonotic protozoal diseases causing abortion which caused by single-celled protozoan parasites; , spp and respectively. Toxoplasmosis is generally considered the most important disease that causing abortion of both pregnant women and different female animals throughout the world, about third of human being population had antibodies against . The infection can pass via placenta, causing encephalitis, chorio-retinitis, mental retardation and loss of vision in congenitally-infected children and stillbirth or mummification of the aborted fetuses of livestock.

Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP): early detection of Toxoplasma gondii infection in mice.

Parasit Vectors 2012 Jan 3;5. Epub 2012 Jan 3.

Institute of Parasitic Diseases, Zhejiang Academy of Medical Sciences, Hangzhou, China.

Background: Toxoplasmosis is a widespread zoonotic parasitic disease that occurs in both animals and humans. Traditional molecular assays are often difficult to perform, especially for the early diagnosis of Toxoplasma gondii infections. Here, we established a novel loop-mediated isothermal amplification targeting the 529 bp repeat element (529 bp-LAMP) to detect T. Read More

A survey of abortifacient infectious agents in livestock in Luzon, the Philippines, with emphasis on the situation in a cattle herd with abortion problems.

Acta Trop 2008 Mar 23;105(3):269-73. Epub 2007 Dec 23.

Department of Disease Control, Graduate School of Veterinary Medicine, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Hokkaido 060-0818, Japan.

In the Philippines, insufficient consideration has been given to the implementation of systematic control measures against major abortifacient infectious agents in livestock. To elucidate the epidemiology of abortifacient infectious agents in livestock, the prevalence of four abortifacient agents was assessed. Initially, a total of 96 cattle including 17 cows with history of abortion were examined in a herd in Luzon at the request of the farm owner. Read More

Seroprevalence of antibodies to Neospora caninum and associated abortion in dairy cattle from central Thailand.

Vet Parasitol 1999 Sep;86(1):49-57

National Institute of Animal Health, Bangkhen, Bangkok, Thailand.

A total of 904 sera from dairy cattle in 11 provinces of central Thailand were tested for antibodies to Neospora caninum employing the indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT). Fifty four (6%) cattle were positive in IFAT, titres of 1:200 (16 cattle), 1:400 (9 cattle), 1:800 (14 cattle), 1:1600 (7 cattle), 1:3200 (6 cattle) and two positives. No significant difference was observed among the provinces. Read More

Trans R Soc Trop Med Hyg 1993 May-Jun;87(3):322-4

Department of Parasitology, Faculty of Medicine, Chiang Mai University, Thailand.

Blood samples from cows and pigs were tested for possible cross-reactivity with a monoclonal antibody-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kit designed for detection of human malaria sporozoites in mosquitoes. The results revealed that 4 of 16 cows (25%) reacted positively with both Plasmodium falciparum (2A10) and P. vivax (NSV3) monoclonal antibodies and 8 (50%) were positive with NSV3 only. Read More
