Goat production in Theileriosis prone areas of Zimbabwe A case of Zviyambe, Hwedza District, Mashonaland East Zimbabwe

Article in Press

The research was conducted in the Zviyambe, Hwedza district, Zimbabwe, provides valuable insights into the potential of goat production in areas prone to Theileriosis. It was revealed that during the Theileriosis epidemic from 2020 to 2022, goat productivity increased by 13.7%. This indicates that Theileriosis does not affect goat output. The study also highlights a shift in farmer preferences due to the epidemic, with...

Antibiogram of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus Strains from Dairy Product in Nasarawa, Nasarawa State, Nigeria

Article in Press

This study determined the antibiogram of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains from traditionally-pasteurised dairy product (Kindirmo) in parts of Nasarawa, Nasarawa State, Nigeria. One hundred and sixty samples were collected from January 2021 – April 2021. Standard microbiological procedures were used in isolating and identifying MRSA strains from the samples. Characterisation of the MRSA strains was...

Article in Press

Characterizing anti-virus genes in sweetpotato is a vital step in mitigating yield loss due to virus infections. This work lays an insight into the structure and expression of key anti-virus genes. Related plant-based anti-virus genes were used as reference to mine key sweetpotato genes from various databases. BLASTN and BLASTP for transcripts was done for evaluation of phylogenetic relationship. Eight genes were...

Low prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in two major towns of Ethiopia: at high risk of spread of the disease

Article in Press

Background: After a report of the disturbing high prevalence of bovine tuberculosis in Addis Ababa and its environs, the capital of Ethiopia, there was a concern that the disease might have been distributed to other major towns via animal movements. Materials and methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted from October 2014 to April 2015 in two selected major towns of Ethiopia namely Hawassa and Adama to assess the...

Prevalence and Risk Factors Associated with Salmonella from Dairy Herds in and Around Areka Town, Boloso Sore Wereda, Wolaita Zone, Southern Ethiopia

Article in Press

The cross-sectional study was conducted from December 2021 to May 2022 to determine the prevalence of Salmonella isolated from raw milk of dairy herds in and around Areka town, Boloso Sore woreda, Wolaita Zone, Southern Ethiopia. A total of 151 direct udder milk samples were examined using bacteriological methods. The overall prevalence of Salmonella was recorded at a rate of 9.3%. The associated risk factors like breed,...

Article in Press

The transmission of antibiotic resistant bacteria from hospital door handles is a major public health concern worldwide. The antibiogram of enteric bacteria isolated from door handles of some selected hospital in Jos was determined. Swabs from door handles of various units such as private ward, surgical ward, medical ward, theatre, laboratory and toilet were cultured in peptone water, then transferred into MacConkey agar....

High Prevalence of Multidrug Resistant Enterobacteriaceae Isolated from Wastewater and Soil in Jos Metropolis, Plateau State

Article in Press

The widespread emergence of antibiotic resistance, particularly multiple antibiotic resistance (MAR) among bacterial species has become one of the most serious challenges in environmental protection. Environmental bacteria are a reservoir of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and a potential source of novel resistance genes in environmental organisms. In the current study, we investigated the high prevalence of...

Antibiotic resistance Patterns of Escherichia coli strains isolated from pig's (Sus scrofa domesticus) casings in Lomé, Togo

Article in Press

Optimal treatment and prudent use of antimicrobials for pigs is imperative to secure animal health and mostly prevent the development of critical resistance which can be transmitted to humans. An important step in this one-health context is to monitor resistance patterns of important animal pathogens. The aim of the study was to investigate the antibiotic resistance patterns of Escherichia coli strains in the intestinal...

Antibacterial activity of Carica papaya seed extracts on Escherichia coli isolates from toilet compartments in Morogoro

Article in Press

Antimicrobial resistance is one of the 21st century’s major global public health challenge which calls for search for newer sources of antimicrobials. Escherichia coli (E. coli) is gram negative straight rod, non-spore forming bacteria, widely distributed in nature and commonly found in lower gastro intestinal tracts of most warm-blooded animals. The bacteria are associated with dysentery and hemolytic uremic syndrome in...

Antibacterial activity of pawpaw seed extract (Carica papaya) on multi-drug resistant bacteria isolated from dry poultry waste

Article in Press

Poultry management generates high amounts of wastes which may result in disposal and pollution threats. It is an ecological place where there are large and diverse numbers of microorganisms. This was therefore designed to investigate bacteria diversities, their antibiotics resistance and possible implication in transporting it over long distance as manure. Dry poultry waste samples were collected from poultry waste packing...

In vitro evaluation of the antibacterial activity of Plectranthus lanuginosus (Hochst. Ex Benth.) Agnew leaf extracts

Article in Press

The increased care toward substituting chemical antimicrobials with natural preparations has led to increased studies. To demonstrate the antimicrobial physiognomies of plant extracts, their consequence on infectious pathogenic microorganisms has to be studied in laboratory. In this study, aqueous, ethanol and n-hexane leaf extracts of Plectranthus lanuginosus were tested for their antibacterial activity against...

Predictors of Sputum Smear Conversion at the end of Two Months Tuberculosis Treatment among New Smear Positive Pulmonary Tuberculosis Patients in Addis Ababa Public Health Centers: a case control study

Article in Press

Background: Limited data are available on predictors of persistent sputum smear positivity at the end of second months of anti-tuberculosis (TB) treatment in Ethiopia. The present investigation was undertaken to identify predictors of sputum smear conversion at the end of second months of anti-TB among new smear positive pulmonary tuberculosis patients on treatment in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Methods: Case-control study was...

Antibiotics susceptibility profile and prevalence of gram-negative uropathogens/urinary isolates from asymptomatic bacteriuria among female students in a University in northern Nigeria

Article in Press

Asymptomatic bacteriuria among healthy female students is a common occurrence that is frequently ignored and this is attributed to the fact that pre-menopausal, non-pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria experience no adverse effects and usually will clear their bacteriuria spontaneously. However, these women are more likely to experience subsequent symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) than women who do not have...
