Antibiotic residues in foods of animal origin have gained a lot of attention in recent years as public health and food safety concerns have grown. A cross-sectional study was conducted to investigate the antibiotic residues in animal-derived food commodities in Bangladesh. A number of 159 animal derived food commodities were analyzed by Thin Layer...

Peste des petits ruminants (PPR) is an acute, highly contagious, world organization for animal health (OIE) notifiable and economically important transboundary viral disease of sheep and goats associated with high morbidity and mortality and caused by PPR virus. This research work was done in 2016-2017 by executing, surveillance and clinical invest...

Infections in poultry cause economic loses and in some cases human health problem worldwide. The most common infections are associated with salmonellosis, colibacillosis, campylobacteriosis, and others. Infections caused by these pathogens, often through poultry products, are also serious public health issues. The practice of phage therapy, which u...

Zearalenone (ZEA) is a non-steroidal estrogenic mycotoxin produced by Fusarium species. The toxicity of ZEA has been evaluated for reproductive and developmental effects; however, there is little evidence about its acute toxicity or general immunotoxicity. In the present study, immune regulatory functions were investigated in mice that had been exp...

Aim: To develop emerging diagnostic technique for bovine tuberculosis and to identify its potential risk factors. Materials & methods: Bacterial genomic DNA was isolated from bovine milk and human sputum samples and subjected to PCR using specific primer pairs. PCR results were validated using bacteriological cultures. Results: PCR amplificati...

Ducks are the natural reservoir of influenza A virus and the central host for highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1), while domestic ducks rearing in semi-scavenging system could serve as re-assortment vessels for re-emerging new subtypes of influenza viruses between birds to human. Avian influenza virus (AIV) surveillance in Bangladesh has been...

Mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON), a secondary metabolite produced by Fusarium fungi, is a contaminant in wheat, barley, and corn worldwide. It has been suggested that DON exhibits toxicity in various organs. Due to the lack of immunotoxicity data for DON, we investigated the differential immunomodulatory effects of DON in mice. DON was orally adminis...

The mycotoxin citrinin can cause mycotoxic nephropathy, cytotoxicity and genotoxicity. To investigate the immune modulatory effects, CTN was orally administered to female BALB/c mice at the dose of 1, 5, or 10mg/kg body weight for 14days, and several immunotoxicity tests were performed. The populations of F4/80(+) cells and CD19(+) cells were signi...

This study was conducted to isolate and identify organisms responsible for subclinical mastitis (SCM) in goats and sheep for the determination of point prevalence of SCM and antibiotic sensitivity of the identified organisms. For this purpose 50 each of lactating sheep and goats were examined with the commercially available Leucocytest (R) SCM dete...
Article
Fascioliasis, one of the most economically important helminth infestations of goats worldwide can be diagnosed using fecal examination and ELISA of serum samples. The aims of the present study were to compare ELISA and fecal examination for diagnosis of fascioliasis and to estimate the point prevalence of Fasciola gigantica in goats from two select...

Five 25-yr-old crocodiles (Crocodylus johnstoni and Crocodylus porosus) were diagnosed with Aeromonas hydrophila-associated septicemia accelerated by improper thermoregulation. At necropsy, pulmonary congestion and pleural effusion were the main lesions in the thorax. Necrotizing enteritis, intestinal hemorrhage, fibrinous serositis, hepatitis, and...

3,3'-Diindolylmethane (DIM), a major product of indole-3-carbinol derived from vegetables of the genus Brassica, exhibits chemotherapeutic activity and various immune modulatory effects in animal models and in vitro studies. Although extensive studies have only focused on DIM's beneficial effects, the toxic effects of DIM on the immune systems have...
Article
A 25-yr-old male freshwater crocodile (Crocodylus johnstoni) was diagnosed with pulmonary mycobacteriosis caused by Mycobacterium szulgai. Necropsy revealed fibrinous exudate in the right pleural cavity and white miliary nodules in the right lung lobe. Histopathologic examination revealed well-demarcated granulomas consisting of multinucleated gian...
