Coccidiosis: Protozoan infection found in animals and man. It is caused by several different genera of COCCIDIA.Eimeria: A genus of protozoan parasites of the subclass COCCIDIA. Various species are parasitic in the epithelial cells of the liver and intestines of man and other animals.Isospora: A genus of protozoan parasites found in the intestines of birds, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals, including man. The oocysts produce two sporocysts, each with four sporozoites. Many species are parasitic in wild and domestic animals.Eimeria tenella: A species of coccidian protozoa that mainly infects domestic poultry.Coccidiostats: Agents useful in the treatment or prevention of COCCIDIOSIS in man or animals.Coccidia: A subclass of protozoans commonly parasitic in the epithelial cells of the intestinal tract but also found in the liver and other organs. Its organisms are found in both vertebrates and higher invertebrates and comprise two orders: EIMERIIDA and EUCOCCIDIIDA.Isosporiasis: Infection with parasitic protozoa of the genus ISOSPORA, producing intestinal disease. It is caused by ingestion of oocysts and can produce tissue cysts.Robenidine: An anticoccidial agent mainly for poultry.Poultry Diseases: Diseases of birds which are raised as a source of meat or eggs for human consumption and are usually found in barnyards, hatcheries, etc. The concept is differentiated from BIRD DISEASES which is for diseases of birds not considered poultry and usually found in zoos, parks, and the wild.Intestinal Diseases, Parasitic: Infections of the INTESTINES with PARASITES, commonly involving PARASITIC WORMS. Infections with roundworms (NEMATODE INFECTIONS) and tapeworms (CESTODE INFECTIONS) are also known as HELMINTHIASIS.Chickens: Common name for the species Gallus gallus, the domestic fowl, in the family Phasianidae, order GALLIFORMES. It is descended from the red jungle fowl of SOUTHEAST ASIA.Protozoan Vaccines: Suspensions of attenuated or killed protozoa administered for the prevention or treatment of infectious protozoan disease.Oocysts: Zygote-containing cysts of sporozoan protozoa. Further development in an oocyst produces small individual infective organisms called SPOROZOITES. Then, depending on the genus, the entire oocyst is called a sporocyst or the oocyst contains multiple sporocysts encapsulating the sporozoites.Feces: Excrement from the INTESTINES, containing unabsorbed solids, waste products, secretions, and BACTERIA of the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM.Antigens, Protozoan: Any part or derivative of any protozoan that elicits immunity; malaria (Plasmodium) and trypanosome antigens are presently the most frequently encountered.Cattle Diseases: Diseases of domestic cattle of the genus Bos.

In humans, the digestive system includes the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT and the accessory glands (LIVER; BILIARY TRACT; PANCREAS).ATP-Binding Cassette Transporters: A family of MEMBRANE TRANSPORT PROTEINS that require ATP hydrolysis for the transport of substrates across membranes. The protein family derives its name from the ATP-binding domain found on the protein.Eimeriida: An order of parasitic organisms in the class COCCIDIA. Families include CRYPTOSPORIDIIDAE; EIMERIIDAE; and SARCOCYSTIDAE.Intestine, Small: The portion of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT between the PYLORUS of the STOMACH and the ILEOCECAL VALVE of the LARGE INTESTINE. It is divisible into three portions: the DUODENUM, the JEJUNUM, and the ILEUM.Neoplasm Proteins: Proteins whose abnormal expression (gain or loss) are associated with the development, growth, or progression of NEOPLASMS. Some neoplasm proteins are tumor antigens (ANTIGENS, NEOPLASM), i.e. they induce an immune reaction to their tumor. Many neoplasm proteins have been characterized and are used as tumor markers (BIOMARKERS, TUMOR) when they are detectable in cells and body fluids as monitors for the presence or growth of tumors. Abnormal expression of ONCOGENE PROTEINS is involved in neoplastic transformation, whereas the loss of expression of TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEINS is involved with the loss of growth control and progression of the neoplasm.TracheitisBirds: Warm-blooded VERTEBRATES possessing FEATHERS and belonging to the class Aves.Air Sacs: Thin-walled sacs or spaces which function as a part of the respiratory system in birds, fishes, insects, and mammals.Enteritis: Inflammation of any segment of the SMALL INTESTINE.VirginiaMinority Health: The concept covering the physical and mental conditions of members of minority groups.Clostridium perfringens: The most common etiologic agent of GAS GANGRENE.

Cryptosporidium, enterocytozoon, and cyclospora infections in pediatric and adult patients with diarrhea in Tanzania. (1/479)

Cryptosporidiosis, microsporidiosis, and cyclosporiasis were studied in four groups of Tanzanian inpatients: adults with AIDS-associated diarrhea, children with chronic diarrhea (of whom 23 of 59 were positive [+] for human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]), children with acute diarrhea (of whom 15 of 55 were HIV+), and HIV control children without diarrhea. Cryptosporidium was identified in specimens from 6/86 adults, 5/59 children with chronic diarrhea (3/5, HIV+), 7/55 children with acute diarrhea (0/7, HIV+), and 0/20 control children. Among children with acute diarrhea, 7/7 with cryptosporidiosis were malnourished, compared with 10/48 without cryptosporidiosis (P < .01). Enterocytozoon was identified in specimens from 3/86 adults, 2/59 children with chronic diarrhea (1 HIV+), 0/55 children with acute diarrhea, and 4/20 control children. All four controls were underweight (P < .01). Cyclospora was identified in specimens from one adult and one child with acute diarrhea (HIV-). Thus, Cryptosporidium was the most frequent and Cyclospora the least frequent pathogen identified. Cryptosporidium and Enterocytozoon were associated with malnutrition. Asymptomatic fecal shedding of Enterocytozoon in otherwise healthy, HIV children has not been described previously.  (+info)

Cyclospora: an enigma worth unraveling. (2/479)

In part, Cyclospora cayetanensis owes its recognition as an emerging pathogen to the increased use of staining methods for detecting enteric parasites such as Cryptosporidium. First reported in patients in New Guinea in 1977 but thought to be a coccidian parasite of the genus Isospora, C. cayetanensis received little attention until it was again described in 1985 in New York and Peru. In the early 1990s, human infection associated with waterborne transmission of C. cayetanensis was suspected; foodborne transmission was likewise suggested in early studies. The parasite was associated with several disease outbreaks in the United States during 1996 and 1997. This article reviews current knowledge about C. cayetanensis (including its association with waterborne and foodborne transmission), unresolved issues, and research needs.  (+info)

Neospora caninum infection and repeated abortions in humans. (3/479)

To determine whether Neospora caninum, a parasite known to cause repeated abortions and stillbirths in cattle, also causes repeated abortions in humans, we retrospectively examined serum samples of 76 women with a history of abortions for evidence of N. caninum infection. No antibodies to the parasite were detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, immunofluorescence assay, or Western blot.  (+info)

Cyclospora cayetanensis infections in Haiti: a common occurrence in the absence of watery diarrhea. (4/479)

Stool samples from a population-based cohort of mothers and children living in Leogane, Haiti were tested for Cyclospora cayetanensis from January 1997 through January 1998. Data on gastrointestinal symptoms were also collected. During the winter months of January to March, the infection was detected in 15-20% of the persons sampled. Most infections did not appear to be causing diarrhea and most infected persons had few oocysts detectable in concentrates of stool. The infection appears to have marked seasonality, with highest rates during the driest and coolest time of the year. It may be that in this tropical setting, high summer temperature is the critical environmental factor that influences the seasonality of infection. This study demonstrates that Cyclospora infections in Haiti are common in the general population.  (+info)

Pathological and immunological findings of athymic nude and congenic wild type BALB/c mice experimentally infected with Neospora caninum. (5/479)

Neospora is a cyst-forming coccidian parasite that causes abortions and neuromuscular disorders in a wide variety of mammals. Japanese bovine isolate JPA1 was inoculated intraperitoneally into BALB/c nu/ nu (athymic nude) and BALB/c (congenic wild type) female mice to examine the distribution of parasites and resistance mechanisms to Neospora infection. All the athymic nude mice died within 28 days after intraperitoneal injection of 2 x 10(5) JPA1 tachyzoites, whereas all the congenic wild type mice survived without exhibiting any clinical signs. Tachyzoites were identified in the uterus and pancreas and later spread to many other organs. Most tachyzoites identified in the necrotic foci were localized in the epithelium of the venules and capillaries. Nude mice developed high level of serum interferon-gamma and interleukin-6 as infection proceeded. Inflammatory response to Neospora infection might be mediated by Th1-type dependent cellular immunity.  (+info)

Re-descriptions of Isospora ameivae Carini, 1932 in the teiid lizard Ameiva ameiva and isospora hemidactyli Carini, 1936 in the gecko Hemidactylus mabouia, with particular reference to their endogenous stages. (6/479)

Redescriptions are given of the mature oocysts of Isospora ameivae Carini, 1932, from the teiid lizard Ameiva ameiva, and Isospora hemidactyli Carini,1936 from the gecko Hemidactylus mabouia, in north Brazil. The endogenous stages of the two parasites in the small intestine are described. Those of I. ameivae are intracytoplasmic, whereas those of I. hemidactyli are intranuclear.  (+info)

Cyclosporiasis: clinical and histopathologic correlates. (7/479)

Although the histopathologic changes associated with Cyclospora cayetanensis infection have been previously described, the histopathology and the appearance of various life cycle stages have not been correlated with severity, stage, and duration of clinical disease. We report a prospective clinical investigation of disease characteristics and histopathologic findings in three otherwise healthy, immunocompetent patients with symptomatic C. cayetanensis infection, the duration of which ranged from 6 to 60 days. Varying degrees of gross and microscopic gastrointestinal inflammation were seen before treatment. An electron-dense phospholipid membrane/myelin-like material was variably present both before and after treatment. The greatest amount of myelin-like material was seen in the patient with prolonged disease. The results of our study suggest that inflammatory changes associated with C. cayetanensis infection may persist beyond parasite eradication. It is intriguing to speculate that the myelin-like material is a marker for persistent inflammation, but further study and confirmation are needed.  (+info)

Cyclospora cayetanensis among expatriate and indigenous populations of West Java, Indonesia. (8/479)

From January 1995 through July 1998, we investigated the occurrence of Cyclospora cayetanensis infection associated with gastrointestinal illness or diarrhea in foreign residents and natives of West Java, Indonesia. We found that C. cayetanensis was the main protozoal cause of gastrointestinal illness and diarrhea in adult foreign residents during the wet season. The parasite rarely caused illness in the indigenous population or in children.  (+info)

After hours upon hours of reading, discussions with other chicken keepers, and experiments and experiences with my own chickens, it has come to be my opinion that back yard chicken keepers make a huge mistake when they buy into the idea that you can prevent coccidiosis by keeping an immaculate coop/brooder. Any chicken kept in any natural or sort-of natural situation, in which it is exposed to the soil, must develop resistance to the oocysts that cause coccidiosis. It can do this gradually, by picking up a little at a time from an early age, or it can get really sick all at once at a later age, and have to be medicated, or possibly die. As a resident of hot and humid East Texas (a fantastic breeding ground for coccidia oocysts), i have had great success in preventing outbreaks of coccidiosis by simply exposing my chicks to soil and adult feces as early as possible and consistently. ...
Coccidiosis is a parasitic disease of the intestinal tract of animals caused by coccidian protozoa. The disease spreads from one animal to another by contact with infected feces or ingestion of infected tissue. Diarrhea, which may become bloody in severe cases, is the primary symptom. Most animals infected with coccidia are asymptomatic, but young or immunocompromised animals may suffer severe symptoms and death. While coccidia can infect a wide variety of animals, including humans, birds, and livestock, they are usually species-specific. One well-known exception is toxoplasmosis caused by Toxoplasma gondii. Humans may first encounter coccidia when they acquire a puppy or kitten that is infected. Other than T. gondii, the infectious organisms are canine and feline-specific and are not contagious to humans, unlike the zoonotic diseases. Puppies are frequently infected with coccidia from the feces of their mother, and are more likely to develop coccidiosis due to their undeveloped immune systems. ...

by K.J. Theodore of www.shagbarkbantams.com. Amprolium shortage? Why are you worried?. Im not. Thats because I practice prevention. And if theres anything to practice prevention for, its COCCIDIOSIS. Since Coccidiosis is one of the most flock-devastating protozoan parasitic diseases, Cocci management should forever be at the forefront of any good health and nutrition program.. If youve ever survived a round of Cocci in your own flock, you know what I mean about devastating. If youre new to the Fancy with a cute little backyard flock, your days are numbered for heartbreak.. It will come from nowhere in the form of a once healthy nice little bird suddenly looking as though theyve ruffled their feathers. They may already be sulking in a corner. Then comes the bloody diarrhea or the oozing of clear fluid from the mouth when you pick them up. By this time, its too late - most of the damage is already done, and its only taken about 96 hours to get there. Cocci outbreaks are particularly ...
In over 30 years of chicken keeping, Ive never had to deal with the dreaded coccidiosis in poultry. When it hit my peaceful poultry yard, I was unprepared. The rapid spreading of coccidiosis in poultry is shocking. I was reeling from the voracity of this viscous killer. My desire is to share what I learned with you to prevent your being caught with your pants down like I was.
Targeting the global poultry industrys more than US$3 billion in annual losses to coccidiosis, Rotecc integrated coccidiosis management was introduced by Zoetis.
Symptoms of coccidiosis are similar to those seen in puppies with giardiasis. The signs include watery or hemorrhagic diarrhea, dehydration, abdominal tenderness, and anorexia. These symptoms may persist for up to 14 days. Unfortunately, these signs are not specific to coccidiosis only. A veterinarian should be consulted if any of the above signs are seen. […]. ...

Coccidiosis, Duodenum, (E. acervulina) Subclinical Infections in Laying Hens. This species is the most frequently encountered in commercial poultry. Light to moderate infections may produce little effect on weight gain and feed conversion. Egg production may drop in laying hens. Watery and mucous droppings may be observed.. An infection with mid-intestinal species of coccidia is a major predisposing factor for Clostridium sp. infection. Colonization of the small intestine by Eimeria sp. may lead to intestinal mucosal damage which may then, in turn, provide natural substrates (plasma proteins) required for Clostridium sp. proliferation.. Egg drop. ...
However, when we are rearing standard, certified or even free-range broilers, the focus needs to be a different one. In these cases it will be difficult to find real clinical coccidiosis. Otherwise, the "silent" species - such as Eimeria praecox among others - will affect the intestinal mucosa and will reduce the capacity of a broiler for nutrient absorption. Dealing with subclinical species is essential in coccidiosis in chickens with a high growth rate.. For a long time, there was a trend to classify coccidiosis in chickens according to the age of the birds. It was considered that E. acervulina, E. maxima and E. tenella were species affecting all the birds. In the case of long life cycle birds such as breeders and layers, it was necessary to include E. necatrix and E. brunetti in the composition of vaccines against coccidiosis. Indeed, this is true for long life cycle birds because feed conversion and growth is important, but not the key point. In fact, these birds are reared under feed ...

Oocysts or immature coccidia are passed in the stool of an infected cat. They lie in the environment and eventually sporulate and mature into a more developed oocyst that can re-infect the cat. Other cats, dogs, or mice may also become infected. This process can occur in as little as six hours, but it usually takes seven to ten days. If the sporulated oocysts are swallowed, they mature in the cats intestine to complete the life cycle. If a mouse should swallow the oocysts, a cat may become infected by eating the infected mouse.. Kittens are commonly diagnosed with coccidiosis. A kitten is not born with coccidia. After birth, kittens are frequently exposed to the mothers feces. If the mother is shedding the infective cysts in her feces, her babies can ingest them during nursing. Since young kittens(less than six months of age) have no immunity to coccidia, the organisms reproduce in great numbers and may cause serious consequences.. It takes about thirteen days for illness to develop after the ...
Fifty cranes, consisting of 46 sandhill (Grus canadensis) and four whooping cranes (Grus americana), were studied. Eighteen sandhill cranes and the four whooping cranes were naturally infected with disseminated visceral coccidiosis (DVC). The remaining sandhill cranes were chicks experimentally infected with oocysts of Eimeria reichenowi and/or E. gruis; five chicks served as controls. There were no clinical signs attributed to respiratory infection. Necropsy of naturally infected adult birds revealed nodules in many organs, including the lung, air sacs, trachea and nares. Artificially infected sandhill cranes and the whooping crane chicks that died from DVC had congestion and consolidated areas in the lung with frothy fluid in the airways. Grossly visible nodules were observed from 10 days postinoculation. Granulomatous pneumonia and tracheitis were observed with light microscopy. Lesions were associated with merogonic and gametogonic stages of eimerian coccidia. Granulomas and granulomatous foci
To our knowledge, there were few reports on rabbit coccidiosis, especially those focused on identification of novel antigens of E. stiedae. In this study, we report for the first time an immunoproteomic analysis of sporozoite proteins of E. stiedae from infected rabbits. Using immunoproteomic analysis, a total of 41 immunoreactive protein spots were recognized by anti-E. stiedae sera of infected rabbits, and 23 protein spots were successfully identified by MALDI-TOF/TOF-MS. Of the 23 analyzed spots, 7 proteins belonged to the family Eimeriidae. Four spots (spot 248, 289, 227, and 321) were identified as HSP70 of Eimeria, 2 of which were at similar Mr and pI values as their orthologues in Eimeria praecox, while the other 2 were from Eimeia necatrix and E. brunetti. HSP70 is considered to be from a predominant HSP family and plays a key regulatory role in parasite development and pathogenesis [32]. It is a highly abundant protein in apicomplexan parasites and is often detected in proteomics ...
Coccidiosis is the name given to a group of closely related diseases caused by a protozoan parasite called Eimeria. The Eimeria develop inside cells lining the intestine. As the parasites reproduce they cause bleeding and massive swelling of the gut. This leads to a huge loss of liquid and the bird is unable to absorb the nutrients from its food.

Breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP, ABCG2) is a member of ABC (ATP-binding cassette) transporter superfamily that occurs in a variety of tissues including liver and small intestine of animals. As BCRP is involved in drug absorption, distribution, and elimination, modulation of its expression may affect the clinical efficacy of drugs. However, little is known about the effects of coccidiosis or colibacillosis infection on the levels of BCRP expression in chickens. Here, we studied the effect of infection with Escherichia coli (E. coli) or Eimeriida mixture (E. necatrix and E. tenella) on the expression levels of ABCG2 mRNA and BCRP in the different segments of small intestine and liver in chickens. Expression of ABCG2 mRNA or BCRP was detected in the entire small intestine and liver of healthy chickens, and the expression levels in liver and ileum were significantly higher than duodenum and jejunum. Infection with E. coli or Eimeriida mixture resulted in significant decrease in ABCG2 mRNA and ...
Coccidiosis is a protozoan cattle disease that most cattle develop some immunity to, while continuing to shed a few oocysts in their feces. Calves are the most vulnerable because they have the least immunity, particularly if they ingest a high number of immature protozoa in a dirty environment that overwhelm their immune system.

Neosporosis, Hanzlicek said, is caused by Neospora caninum, a coccidian parasite carried by dogs-wild and domestic. It was first discovered in the United States in 1988, but tests on stored older tissues have confirmed the organisms presence since at least the 1950s.. "We talk a lot about it on the dairy side, but this organism is also present in beef cow-calf operations," Hanzlicek said.. Dogs, coyotes, gray wolves and dingoes are the definitive hosts of neospora, and they become infected by eating bovine contaminated tissues such as muscle, placenta and aborted fetuses, Hanzlicek explained.. "(Neospora) goes into the intestine of these canines, undergoes some changes and then is shed in the feces," he said. "It goes through another life cycle on the ground. The cow ingests the contaminated feces, or ingests water or feed that contains the contaminated feces. It then moves to multiple tissues in the bovine: for example, muscles, brain and neurologic tissues, and the liver.". Hanzlicek said ...

Despite the medicine she didnt pick up. She took on a hang dog type look and her breathing was still quite noisy. I gave her rehydration fluid and her poo was definitely off, though showed no signs of blood, which is a tell tale sign of coccidiosis. I did not sleep much that first night and the next day she was no better, but thankfully she was also not worse. She was inside a shelter and so I could see she had eaten little of the grass that had been left for her. I checked her gums and they seemed paler than the previous day and another dark shadow crossed my path - the blood parasite disease caused anemia. Could I give her a shot of the medicine we use for the blood parasite disease on top of the coccidiosis medicine?

Remarks by Rami Dalloul, Virginia Tech, USA, during the poultry breakout session at the 2016 World Nutrition Forum in Vancouver, Canada.
Traditionally most veterinarians have preferred to desex dogs and cats shortly before they enter puberty, at around six months of age. The thinking has been that six months is not too young, not too old, and an age that pre-dates the advent of sexual maturity, with all of the behavioural issues that can bring. Most vets would still see that as the ideal age, for most pets, and in most circumstances. The success of public education programmes promoting desexing to reduce the number of unwanted dogs and cats, and the introduction of State and local laws mandating compulsory desexing for animals sold as pets or adopted from shelters has seen the average age for desexing steadily reduce. In many cases shelters and Humane Societies are now routinely desexing animals before they go to their new homes, sometimes at as young as 8 or 9 weeks.. As far as the spaying or neutering procedures themselves are concerned there is no inherent problem in desexing an animal even at this very young age. Young ...

Neosporosis is a disease affecting predominantly the fetal development in bovine hosts, it may also cause neuromuscular dysfunction in infected new born calves and pups [2]. In cattle, the outcome of a N. caninum infection appears largely dependent upon the effectiveness of the immune system of the mother animal [15]. Thus, in a certain number of cases, immunity appears insufficient to prevent vertical transmission to the bovine fetus [15].. Chemotherapeutical treatment of neosporosis may be an issue, provided that an appropriate drug is made available. In this respect, we have previously described the use of a mouse model to demonstrate the efficacy of toltrazuril and ponazuril for the prevention of parasite dissemination and subsequent cerebral lesion formation [7]. We now addressed - in a first step - the question, if the same drug would exhibit a basic effect in the experimentally infected bovine host. This question was tackled in view to justify and plan future trials for the treatment of ...
At day 14, average feed conversion and live weights were similar in the vaccine and salinomycin groups, Mathis reports. By day 21, the vaccinated group trailed behind the nonvaccinated group. However, after 21 days, the vaccinated birds recovered and began to gain. About day 28, performance declined in birds receiving the anticoccidial due to the presence of subclinical coccidiosis. Under normal management conditions, this is a typical occurrence when this ionophore is used, Mathis notes ...
Coccidiosis causing oocysts can build up during the housed period, increasing the risk of both beef and dairy calves contracting the disease as spring progresses.
Chicken interleukin 2 (chIL-2), a primary cytokine excreted mainly by activated T cells, can significantly enhance immunity. The chIL-2 has been proven to play an important role not only in the hosts response to coccidiosis and salmonella among parasite and bacterial diseases but also in the hosts enhanced immune responses to vaccines. To examine the genetic polymorphisms and their potential impact on the structure and function of the chIL-2, we first reviewed the history of identification of chIL-2 mRNA and genomic DNA sequences and analyzed the distribution of nucleotide variation in both coding and intronic sequences that were deposited in the GenBank database. Then a short DNA fragment of 374 bp to 386 bp within chIL-2 intron 2, in which a number of discontinuous insertions/deletions (in/dels) were involved in defining major sequence variations and structures, was targeted for re-sequencing in this study. A total of 15 novel haplotypes were identified in 66 indigenous and commercial ...

The primary goal of this project is to continue to select adjuvants that can maximize the host immune responses against Neospora antigens. The Neospora cyclophilin (NcCyP) was selected to be the vaccine candidate for this project. This protein was highly expressed in E. coli in a soluble form. Experiments were conducted to characterize the two potent adjuvants identified in previous studies. The results showed that NcCyP stimulated production of interferon-gamma (an inflammatory cytokine) and lymphocyte proliferation only in animals vaccinated with a formulation comprised of NcCyP and one of the two potent adjuvants. These studies confirmed the efficacy of the Pfizer adjuvants which will be used in a vaccine trial in the small ruminant neosporosis model. ...

Eimeria acervulina is a species of Eimeria that causes coccidiosis in older poultry. Lesionsare limited to anterior or first third of the small intestine. Peptide fragments of antigen protein can beused to select nonamers for use in rational vaccine design and to increase the understanding of roles ofthe immune system in infectious diseases. Analysis shows MHC class II binding peptides of antigenprotein from Eimeria acervulina are important determinant for protection of host form parasitic infection.In this assay, we used PSSM and SVM algorithms for antigen design and predicted the binding affinityof antigen protein having 299 amino acids, which shows 291 nonamers. Binding ability prediction ofantigen peptides to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I & II molecules is important invaccine development from Eimeria acervulina

The Indirect Immunofluorescence Reaction (RIFI) was used to identify antibodies in 795 samples of sheep serum, from 31 farms distributed in nine municipalities of the Southeastern Bahia. The prevalence was 13.2% (105/795), with titers varying between 50 (12.4%), 100 (26.7%), 200 (14.3%), 400 (19%), 800 (18%), 1600 (4.8%) and 3200 ...
Taylor, M. A., Bartram, D. J. The history of decoquinate in the control of coccidial infections in ruminants. J. vet. Pharmacol. Therap. 35, 417-427.. Decoquinate is a quinolone derivative that has been used for over 20 years in the control of coccidiosis in domestic ruminants. Decoquinate treats coccidiosis in lambs and calves and prevents coccidiosis in lambs when administered in feed at a dosage of 1 mg decoquinate/kg bodyweight (b.w.) daily for at least 28 days. It prevents coccidiosis in calves and aids in the prevention of coccidiosis in lambs when administered in calf and ewe feed, respectively, at a dosage of 0.5 mg/kg b.w. daily for at least 28 days. Decoquinate also aids in the prevention of abortions and perinatal losses owing to toxoplasmosis by medication of ewe feed at a dosage of 2 mg/kg b.w. daily, fed continuously for 14 weeks prior to lambing. Several field studies have reported reductions in cryptosporidial oocyst shedding. Decoquinate acts early in the life cycle of Eimeria ...
Wild Malayan red jungle fowl faecal samples were examined to determine the prevalence and species of Eimeria from their natural habitat. The birds possessed at least five coccidial species, namely Eimeria mitis, E. acervulina var. diminuta, E. praecox var. ceylonensis, E. maxima var. indentata and an unidentified Eimeria species. No attempt was made to name this unidentified species as information on other stages was lacking. Intensively reared Malayan red jungle fowl chicks were used to study the pattern of coccidial infections. The chicks suffered from coccidiosis caused by E. tenella, E. necatrix and E. maxima. The mean prepatency period in these chicks was 9 days; their peak oocyst counts ranged from 136, 364 to 591, 200 oocysts per gram of faeces. Eimeria tenella was the most prominent pathogenic species encountered. Kamovskys fixative and McNamaras Giemsa stain were used for the first time for processing mucosal tissue samples for the study of cellular response to E. tenella. Two groups ...
Vertical transmission from an infected cow to its fetus accounts for the vast majority of new Neospora caninum infections in cattle. A vaccine composed of a chimeric antigen named recNcMIC3-1-R, based on predicted immunogenic domains of the two microneme proteins NcMIC1 and NcMIC3, the rhoptry protein NcROP2, and emulsified in saponin adjuvants, significantly reduced the cerebral infection in non-pregnant BALB/c mice. Protection was associated with a mixed Th1/Th2-type cytokine response. However, the same vaccine formulation elicited a Th2-type immune response in pregnant mice and did not prevent vertical transmission or disease, neither in dams nor in offspring mice. In this study, an alternative vaccine formulation containing recNcMIC3-1-R emulsified in Freunds incomplete adjuvant, a stimulator of the cellular immunity, was investigated. No protection against vertical transmission and cerebral infection in the pregnant mice and a very limited protective effect in the non-pregnant mice were observed.

Development and Standardization of Dot - ELISA for Detection of Neospora caninum Antibodies in Cattle and Comparison with Standard Indirect ELISA and Direct Agglutination Test (DAT).
Neospora caninum infection is a major cause of abortion in cattle. The objectives of this study were to genetically characterize the N. caninum NC-6 Argentina isolate using a multilocus microsatellite analysis approach and to study its biological behavior by experimental inoculations into seronegative and seropositive pregnant cattle, evaluating the humoral and cellular immune response elicited and the occurrence of transplacental transmission and fetopathy. Pregnant cows (65 days of gestation) seropositive and seronegative to N. caninum were intravenously inoculated with tachyzoites of the NC-6 Argentina N. caninum strain and slaughtered at 108 ± 2 days of gestation. Serum samples were analyzed for N. caninum antibodies by indirect fluorescent antibody test. The cellular immune response was analyzed by detection of gamma interferon (γIFN) production in blood cells. Tissue samples from dams, fetuses, and placental cotyledons were processed by histopathological and immunohistochemical ...
Five experiments were conducted comparing differential intestinal immune responses to two isolates of Eimeria acervulina (EA), EA1 and EA2. In three experiments, broiler chicks were divided into control (non-challenged), EA1, or EA2 challenged (14 days of age) groups. On day 6 post-challenge (PC), changes in body weight were determined, intestinal lesions were scored, and duodenal tissue was evaluated for morphometric alterations and mucosal mast cell responses. EA1 produced duodenal lesions and reduced villus height to crypt depth ratios when compared to controls; however, no differences were found in mast cell counts. EA2 produced differing results, and observed data were suggestive of an intestinal secretory response when compared to EA1 or controls. In Experiment 4, tissues were analyzed from day 2 through day 6 PC. Villus atrophy and crypt hyperplasia were heightened on day 5 PC in both challenged groups. Mast cell counts were significantly greater on days 3 and 4 PC in EA1 birds. In ...
Backgrounds: Neospora caninum is an Apicomplexan parasite. It causes paralysis and neuromuscular disorders in dogs and abortion in cattle. Although contamination with N. caninum is common in stray dogs, most of the dogs are infected with subclinical neosporosis. Objectives: The objective of this study was to evaluate the presence of N. caninum in multiple tissues and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using Nested-PCR technique. Furthermore, the N. caninum specific antibody was detected in serum of examined dogs by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Methods: Forty two stray dogs of mixed breeds captured from districts of Tehran, Iran, were examined physically and euthanized. A commercially indirect ELISA kit was used to detect the anti-N. caninum antibodies in serum. Nested PCR was applied to analyze the extracted DNA from brain, skeletal muscle, CSF, liver, spleen and mandibular lymph nodes for Nc5 gene. Results: Indirect ELISA assay for N. caninum antibody was positive in a seven years old
Eimeriosis is caused by a protozoan infection affecting most domestic animal species. Outbreaks in cattle are associated with various environmental factors in temperate climates but limited work has been done in tropical settings. The objective of this work was to determine the prevalence and environmental factors associated with bovine Eimeria spp. infection in a mixed farming area of western Kenya. A total of 983 cattle were sampled from 226 cattle-keeping households. Faecal samples were collected directly from the rectum via digital extraction and analysed for the presence of Eimeria spp. infection using the MacMaster technique. Individual and household level predictors of infection were explored using mixed effects logistic regression. The prevalence of individual animal Eimeria infection was 32.8% (95% CI 29.9-35.9). A positive linear relationship was found between risk of Eimeria infection and increasing temperature (OR = 1.4, 95% CI 1.06-1.86) and distance to areas at risk of flooding (OR ...

The aim of this cross-sectional observational study was to determine the frequency and factors associated with infection by Eimeria spp. and gastrointestinal nematodes in 356 calves on 20 dairy farms located in southern Minas Gerais, Brazil. Ten species of Eimeria spp. were identified, of which E. bovis (37.6%) and E. zuernii (17.9%) were the most frequent. From fecal cultures, four genera of gastrointestinal nematodes were recovered, of which Cooperia spp. (74.6%) and Haemonchus (19.4%) were the most frequent. Variables relating to higher levels of technology used on dairy farms showed a significant association (p , 0.05) with higher OPG and EPG counts, and are discussed in this study..

Recent work has highlighted and enumerated the economic annual losses due to Neospora caninum abortions worldwide, which should provide strong motivation for the control of bovine neosporosis. However, with the recent withdrawal from sale of the only commercially available vaccine, control options for N. caninum have become more restricted. While researchers continue to work on developing alternative efficacious vaccines, what are the control options presently available for the cattle industries? At the practical level, recommendations for Test-and-cull, or not breeding from seropositive dams stand diametrically opposed to alternative options put forward that suggest a primary producer is better advised to keep those cows in the herd that are already seropositive, i.e. assumed to be chronically infected, and indeed those that have already aborted once. Treatment with a coccidiostat has been recommended as the only economically viable option, yet no such treatment has gained official, ...
PDF version is available online.. Fourteen breeding gilts were moved from a high-health-status multiplication facility to a dirt lot. Most exhibited diarrhea after four days and one died after seven days. The gilts, from a source herd with no history of coccidial infection, were diagnosed with Eimeria-induced coccidiosis and necrotic enteritis. Eimeria infestation is not typically pathogenic. High-health-status swine appear to be particularly vulnerable to parasitism normally of limited pathogenicity when moved from high-health-status environments to conventional production systems..

Abstract A cross-sectional serological survey was conducted on cattle pasturing in an area of the southern Italian Apennines to evaluate the seroprevalence to Neospora caninum, and to investigate the climatic, environmental, farm management, and individual animal factors that influence the distribution of this protozoan. Blood samples were collected from 864 pastured cattle raised on 81 farms. Serum samples were tested for antibodies to N. caninum using an ELISA assay (HerdCheck1, IDEXX). A geographical information system (GIS) for the study area was constructed using the following remote sensing (RS) and landscape feature data: autumn-winter, spring and summer normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI), land cover, elevation, slope, aspect, mean rainfall and minimum, mean, and maximum temperature in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Data on each of these features were then extracted for buffer zones consisting of the area included in a circle of 3 km diameter centered on the 81 ...
From the neo- (Latin, "new") + spora (Greek, "seed") and canis (Latin, "dog"), Neospora caninum (Figure) is a sporozoan parasite that was first described in 1984. It is a major pathogen of cattle and dogs but can also infect horses, goats, sheep, and deer. Antibodies to N. caninum have been found in humans, predominantly in those with HIV infection, although the role of this parasite in causing or exacerbating illness is unclear.. ...
Neosporosis was firstly described in dogs with nervous system alterations in Norway and McAllister et al. (1998) confirmed the dog as a definitive host. Canine neosporosis is a disease that can cause severe clinical manifestations, mainly of neuromuscular origin. Despite this, there is a concern from an epidemiologic perspective that dogs can be definitive hosts.. The most severe signs of neosporosis in dogs occur in congenitally infected puppies, with ascending paralysis of the limbs and rigid hyperextension, which can lead to progressive paralysis and death. Difficulty to swallow, accompanied by paralysis of jaw, muscular stiffness, and atrophy and cardiac failure can also be observed. Moreover, the disease can be shown in the generalized form. Severe dermatitis and peritonitis caused by N. caninum were already reported as well.. Despite puppies being more commonly affected, adult and/or old dogs can also present severe neosporosis, including deaths. Reproductive disorders, like abortion and ...

Neospora caninum is a protozoan parasite, which causes fetal and neonatal mortality in livestock and companion animals. In 224 abortions in Belgian cattle, different diagnostic methods were used to demonstrate infection, and the presence of N. caninum. An indirect fluorescent antibody test (IFAT) was used to analyze fetal and maternal sera and immunohistochemistry (IHC) was performed when lesions consistent with neosporosis were observed in the brain, heart or liver. Twenty dairy cattle sera out of 70 (29%) and 13 beef cattle sera out of 93 (14%) were positive by IFAT. A positive titer to N. caninum was found in seven and three fetuses born to beef and dairy cows, respectively. Lesions consistent with N. caninum infection were observed in 17 ...
Examination of the serum from an aborting cow is only indicative of exposure to N. caninum and histologic examination of the fetus is necessary for a definitive diagnosis of neosporosis. The brain, heart, liver, placenta, and body fluids or blood serum are the best specimens for diagnosis and diagnostic rates are higher if multiple tissues are examined. Although lesions of neosporosis are found in several organs, fetal brain is the most consistently affected organ. Because most aborted fetuses are likely to be autolyzed, even semi-liquid brain tissue should be fixed in 10% buffered neutral formalin for histologic examination of hematoxylin and eosin (HE) stained sections. Immunohistochemistry is necessary because there are generally only a few N. caninum present in autolyzed tissues and these are often not visible in H and E stained sections. The most characteristic lesion of neosporosis is focal encephalitis characterized by necrosis and nonsuppurative inflammation (Barr et al., 1991). ...
Studied was the effect of tiamin at the rate of 50 mg/kg mixture and white of egg in ratios of 25 and 50 per cent to the feed on the course of coccidiosis in chickens caused by Eimeria tenella. It was found that those of the birds that were offered 25 per cent white of egg and tiamin in a dose of 100 mg per kg exhibited more severe signs of coccidiosis had more pronounced morphologic changes with a higher mortality rate and the amount of the oocysts shed was higher than the same indices in birds having received the vitamin at the rate of 50 mg per kg and white of egg in a ration of 50 per cent to the feed ...

Neospora caninum is an obligate intracellular protozoan that causes abortion in cattle worldwide. Plasma concentrations of pregnancy-associated glycoprotein 1 (PAG-1), produced by binucleate trophoblast cells, are used for pregnancy diagnosis and as a marker of foetal-placental well-being, while PAG-2, produced by both mono- and binucleate trophoblast cells, may serve as an indicator of abortion risk. In prior work, natural N. caninum infection was found to modify plasma PAG-1 and PAG-2 patterns. The present study examines PAG-1 and PAG-2 dynamics and trophoblast cell populations following experimental infection with N. caninum. The study population was comprised of 17 N. caninum seronegative Holstein-Friesian heifers. On day 110 of ...
In experiment 1, fecal oocyst counts declined more rapidly in amprolium-treated lambs following weaning. Fecal scores were higher in the control lambs compared with the SL-fed lambs, suggesting more signs of coccidiosis in control lambs. In experiment 2, oocyst counts were similar initially, but were reduced in SL-fed lambs by weaning and remained lower thereafter. Dag and fecal scores were similar before weaning, but lower in SL-fed lambs by weaning and remained lower thereafter. No SL lambs required treatment for coccidiosis, whereas 33% of control lambs required treatment. In experiment 3, oocyst counts were reduced in SL compared with control fed lambs ...
Eimeria maxima gametocytes contain two major antigens with molecular masses of 56 and 82 kilodaltons (kDa) which are recognized by convalescent sera from immune chickens. Preparations enriched in these two antigens were used to immunize mice, and several monoclonal antibodies which specifically reacted with the 56-kDa antigen were produced. One of these monoclonal antibodies of the immunoglobulin M subclass, along with immune chicken sera raised against affinity-purified 56- and 82-kDa antigens, was used to passively immunize chicks. On the basis of the parameter of total oocyst output, it was found that these antibodies provided partial protection (40 to 50% inhibition) against E. maxima challenge infections. ...
Neosporosis is a polysystemic disease that can affect dogs of any age and can cause inflammation of the central nervous system. Antemortem diagnosis can be challenging, as clinical and conventional laboratory test findings are often nonspecific. A previous report described cerebellar lesions in brain MRI studies of seven dogs and proposed that these may be characteristic for central nervous system Neosporosis. The purpose of this retrospective study was to describe MRI characteristics in another group of dogs with confirmed central nervous system neosporosis and compare them with the previous report. The hospitals database was searched for dogs with confirmed central nervous system neosporosis and four observers recorded findings from each dogs MRI studies. A total of four dogs met inclusion criteria. Neurologic examination was indicative of a forebrain and cerebellar lesion in dog 2 and multifocal central nervous system disease in dogs 1, 3, and 4. Magnetic resonance imaging showed mild ...
Canine neosporosis: perspectives on pathogenesis and management Rodrigo C Silva,1 Gustavo P Machado2 1Department of Pathobiology and Population Medicine, College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University, Starkville, MS, USA; 2Department of Internal Medicine and Surgery of Small Animals, Dr Munhoz Veterinary Hospital, Itápolis, Brazil Abstract: Canine neosporosis is a worldwide disease caused by the obligate intracellular parasite protozoan Neospora caninum, manifesting mainly neurological symptoms. N. caninum has a heteroxenous life cycle and affects a wide range of warm-blooded animals. The domestic and wild canids are the definitive host of the parasite. They shed oocysts after ingestion of tissue cysts from infected intermediate hosts (ovine, equine, bovine, canine, and many other species), containing bradyzoites, or oocyst-contaminated water and food. The presence of dogs in farms is considered a risk factor for production animals. A wide range of diagnostic methods are currently

Rhoptries are specialized secretory organelles that are uniquely present within protozoan parasites of the phylum Apicomplexa. These obligate intracellular parasites comprise some of the most important parasites of humans and animals, including the causative agents of malaria (Plasmodium spp.) and chicken coccidiosis (Eimeria spp.). The contents of the rhoptries are released into the nascent parasitophorous vacuole during invasion into the host cell, and the resulting proteins often represent the literal interface between host and pathogen. We have developed a method for highly efficient purification of rhoptries from one of the best studied Apicomplexa, Toxoplasma gondii, and we carried out a detailed proteomic analysis using mass spectrometry that has identified 38 novel proteins. To confirm their ...
Difficulty walking with back legs in English Bulldog Question: Hello, I have a four year old American Bulldog who has paresis in his hind legs that is progressively getting worse. The best way to describe his condition is that his rear end looks drunk. We had his spine and hips X-Rayed and looked at by both a neurologist and radiologist. In both cases they didnt see anything that might be causing this. We ran tests for Neospora Caninum and Toxoplasmosis , the Neospora Caninum test came back negative, but the Toxoplasmosis test came back with a slightly elevated levels. However my veterinarian feels that this may have been from a previous exposure and is not causing his current condition. To be on the safe side my vet prescribed Doxycline and wants to test him again in a few weeks to determine if these low levels are declining or increasing. I have been sending email to all American Bulldog breeders I can find and have received plenty of replies, with suggestions ranging from a pinched nerve to ...
A medication similar to Marquis (the only approved medication to treat EPM), but in a top dress pellet form will be introduced in early December. Both Marquis and this new medication(generic name diclazuril), prevent the EPM protozoa from growing and replicating. Neither actually seem to kill the EPM organism. However, the bodys own immune system can kill the protozoa once it stops multiplying. Dr. Tom Divers, of Cornell Veterinary School, presented the information at a recent seminar. Dr. Divers explained that diclazuril more easily crosses the blood brain barrier than ponazuril, the active ingredient in Marquis. Both medications have a wide margin of safety. Diclazuril has been used to treat coccidial infections in other animals. The other class of medication used to treat EPM is pyrimethamine which actually kills the EPM organism. However, there are cases where the horse gets worse when treated with the pryimethamine as the protozoa die off and there is an inflammatory response ...

Avian coccidiosis is an intracellular intestinal parasitic disease, caused by intracellular intestinal parasites from the genus Eimeria, among which Eimeria tenella is one of the most pathogenic species and causes great economic losses. Frequent applications of anticoccidial drugs have resulted in the development of drug-resistance in E. tenella. In the present study, we sought to determine the genetic diversity of E. tenella isolates prevalent in chicken farms in Hubei Province of China and examine their sensitivity to three anticoccidial drugs. The results provide useful information for the prevention and control of coccidiosis in this region. Eimeria tenella oocysts were isolated from faecal samples collected from different commercial broiler production farms in Hubei Province, China. After oocyst sporulation and animal inoculation for expansion of the field isolates, DNA and RNA were extracted from excysted sporozoites for molecular characterization. Species
The effectiveness of four commercial disinfectants including ammonium hydroxide, phenol, Eco.Bio (combination of QACs and gluteraldehyde) and Virox (combination of peracetic acid and hydrogen peroxide) was evaluated against unsporulated E. tenella oocysts which were obtained from naturally infected birds with ceccal coccidiosis then propagated in broiler chicks reared on wire cage and fed anticoccidial free starter ration from day one of rearing till the end of experiment. The oocysts were exposed to the disinfectants at different concentrations and different contact times. In addition, the effect of some environmental factors including temperature, pH and presence of organic matter on the efficiency of these disinfectants was also studied. Based on obtained results of the current study, it was observed that the most effective disinfectants against unsporulated E. tenella oocysts were ammonium hydroxide 5% and 10%, Phenol 10%, while Eco. Bio and Virox were less effective. Also, the results ...
Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal illness caused by the parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis. People can become infected with Cyclospora by consuming food or water contaminated with the parasite; it is not transmitted directly from one person to another person. The most common symptom of cyclosporiasis is watery diarrhea, which can be profuse. Other common symptoms include anorexia, fatigue, weight loss, nausea, flatulence, abdominal cramping, and myalgia; vomiting and low-grade fever may also occur.. Symptoms of cyclosporiasis begin an average of 7 days (range: 2 days to ≥2 weeks) after ingestion of the parasite. If untreated, the illness may last for a few days to a month or longer, and may have a remitting- relapsing course. The treatment of choice for cyclosporiasis is trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX). No effective alternative treatments have yet been identified for persons who are allergic to or cannot tolerate TMP/SMX, thus observation and symptomatic care is recommended for these ...
Cyclosporiasis FAQ. Cyclosporiasis What is cyclosporiasis? Cyclosporiasis is an infection of the intestine caused by a parasite called Cyclospora cayetanensis (SIGH-clo-SPORE-uh KYE-uh-tuh-NEN-sis). The first known human cases of Cyclospora infection (cyclosporiasis) were reported in 1979.. Who gets cyclosporiasis? People of all ages can get this infection. Although travelers to tropical countries may be at increased risk from exposure to contaminated water or food, the disease also occurs in the United States. The risk may vary with season; cases are reported year-round, but the majority of cases and outbreaks are reported during the spring and summer months. Persons who have previously been infected with Cyclospora can become infected again.. How is cyclosporiasis spread? The disease can be spread when a form of the Cyclospora parasite that can make someone sick enters the body through the mouth. People with cyclosporiasis pass the parasite in their feces (stool), but that form of the parasite ...
Upton, S.J.; McAllister, C.T.; Garrett, C.M., 1993: Description of a new species of Eimeria (Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from Heloderma suspectum (Sauria: Helodermatidae)
Malaria, African trypanosomiasis, theileriosis, babesiosis and coccidiosis are of great public health and/or economic importance in eastern Africa. Leishmaniasis is an increasing problem in this area and other protozoal diseases which are found among human and/or livestock populations include toxoplasmosis, trichomoniasis, amoebiasis, giardiasis, sarcocystosis, Balantidium coli infection and histomoniasis. Control of the vector-borne parasitic protozoan diseases has been based mainly on the use of pesticides with their attendant, adverse effects on the environment. The paper describes the public health and economic problems posed by the main protozoan diseases in eastern Africa and discusses their control, stressing the importance of environmental considerations when planning control measures. Further, a consideration of the public health impact of these diseases when drawing up, and during implementation of, major agricultural, hydro-electric or irrigation schemes, is emphasized. The possible ...

Since 1994, Irish cattle have been exposed to greater risks of acquiring Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) infection as a consequence of the importation of over 70,000 animals from continental Europe. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of reported clinical cases of paratuberculosis in Ireland. This study examines the prevalence of factors that promote the introduction and within-herd transmission of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) on selected Irish dairy farms in the Cork region, and the association between these factors and the results of MAP screening tests on milk sock filter residue (MFR). A total of 59 dairy farms, selected using non-random methods but apparently free of endemic paratuberculosis, were enrolled into the study. A questionnaire was used to collect data about risk factors for MAP introduction and transmission. The MFR was assessed on six occasions over 24 months for the presence of MAP, using culture and ...

A coprological survey with detailed clinical observation of naturally occurring haemorrhagic enteritis (HE) cases was conducted to understand the pathophysiology of HE by clarifying the infection status of Eimeria and enteropathogenic bacteria in cattle. Faecal samples from 55 cases of HE and 26 clinically normal animals were collected, and a quantitative examination of Eimeria and potential enteropathogenic bacteria was performed. The number of Eimeria species oocysts per gram of faeces (OPG) exceeded 10,000 in 69.1 per cent of HE cases with a maximum of 1,452,500 OPG and Eimeria zuernii was found to be overwhelmingly dominant. A significant increase in faecal coliform count was observed in HE cases compared with clinically normal animals. Among the animals shedding ,10,000 OPG, 42.9 per cent showed a remarkable increase in Clostridium perfringens abundance (,104 CFU/g) in the faeces. In the cases with C. perfringens detected, its abundance was positively correlated with Eimeria OPG and high C. ...
