A preliminary characterization of an invariant 52kDa surface antigen in Trypanosoma evansi that serve as a diagnostic marker

The study was carried out to examine the ways that Trypanosoma evansi components interact with the host, by investigating the components of the parasite which acted as antigens during infection, and to study the dynamic of some of these antigens during infection. Such approach could help in identifying new diagnostic reagents, a better understanding of existing diagnostic methods and target antigen for production of...

Study of Giardia spp., Cryptosporidium spp. and Eimeria spp. infections in dairy cattle in Algeria

The prevalence of Giardia spp., Cryptosporidium spp and Eimeria spp. in dairy cattle was studied on sixteen farms in three regions at north-eastern Algeria. 690 fecal samples were collected (330 cows and 360 calves aged 1 day to 12 months), were processed by a concentration technique (to examine them for Giardia spp. cysts and Eimeria spp. oocysts), followed by a modified Ziehl-Neelsen staining to examine them for...
