The present study describes the gross, histopathologic lesions of the heart arising in pigs infected with acute African Swine Fever (ASF) and their biochemical profile. Ten pigs were infected by intramuscular injection of ASF virus (Georgia 2007). Selected heart samples were submitted for histopathological examination and Hematoxylin-Basic Fuchsin-Picric Acid (HBFP) staining. Enzymatic abnormalities were evaluated by measurement of main cardiac markers, whose activity increased during the early stage of infection, with histopathological changes occurring later...

Acanthocephalan larvae were found during parasitological sections in intestines of four out of 84 individuals of raccoon (Procyon lotor L.) from eastern Czech Republic. They were identified as cystacanths of Polymorphus minutus (Goeze, 1782). Because water birds are the proper hosts of this parasite, this record is among the rare ones. For this reason we present the morphological description, biometric data and photographs of the parasites, as well as a discussion of similar cases reported in the literature...

Toxoplasma gondii is a common protozoan parasite which causes toxoplasmosis worldwide. There are limited treatment options against T. gondii infection. Once transmitted, T. gondii can spread to many organs in the body, including the brain, liver and kidneys. One of the most common signs of toxoplasmosis is a rise in oxidative stress. Therefore, our aim was to determine the antioxidant levels in the brain, liver and kidney of rats infected with this parasite. In the present study, 2–4-months old Wistar albino rats were infected intraperitoneally with 1 x 104 mL of RH strain of T...

Dictyocaulus arnfieldi is a lungworm commonly found in equids; however, relatively little is known about it. The aim of the present study was to establish the prevalence of equine lungworms in naturally-infected working and sporting horses, donkeys and mules in rural areas of Urmia, northwest Iran. The fecal samples were collected from 299 working horses, 57 sporting horses, 66 donkeys and 37 mules during the period March 2014 to June 2016. The collected fecal samples were processed within 48 hours following rectal sampling...

Small amoebae belonging to the Acanthamoeba genus complete their life cycles in different environmental niches as free-living protists however some of them are facultative parasites that can cause severe disease in humans. The sight-threatening Acanthamoeba keratitis develops in immune-competent persons, mainly in contact lens wearers; it is detected with increasing frequency along with the spread of contact lens use. The high abundance of the amoebae in the environment is important for dispersion and transmission of the infections among humans...

The phyllosphere is an ecological niche that includes the area of the leaf blade, which is a living environment for microorganisms of various taxonomic and trophic groups, including saprotrophic and phytopathogenic fungi. This study analysed the degree of colonisation of the phyllosphere of rush plants of selected bathing lakes by fungi of the Fusarium genus that are of significance to the etiology and epidemiology of fungal infections, and to toxicology and allergology. The research materials was plants of the littoral zone of Lakes Skanda and Kortowskie, which were subjected to a standard phytopathological assessment...

This paper concerns part of a monitoring study and contains the results of 20-year observations on the species diversity and dynamics of the count Candida genus fungi which inhabit surface waters. The research material consisted of water samples collected from the Łyna River, the main river of the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship, within the administrative boundaries of the city of Olsztyn. The samples were subjected to routine diagnostic testing applied in hydromycological studies. The obtained fungi isolates were determined, documented photographically and deposited in a strain collection of the Department of Microbiology and Mycology at the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn...

The paper describes a field survey performed to determine the prevalence of hydatid cyst disease in ruminants in butcher shops in the Holy City of Karbala, and to compare the rates of infection among these animals. The study lasted for five months from November 2016 to April 2017. During the study, 2115 cattle, 4230 sheep and 623 goats were examined. The results indicate that 39 cattle (1.84%), 84 sheep (1.9%) and 15 goats (2.4%) were infected. The livers of sheep and goats demonstrated a higher incidence of hydatid cysts than the lungs, with 1...

A parasitological investigation on trichodinid ciliates from several freshwater fishes in the Baikka Beel of Moulvibazar district of Sylhet was carried out between January and December 2015. During the investigation period, two parasitic trichodinid ciliates (Ciliophora: Peritrichia), Trichodina pseudoheterodentata Tang et al. 2017 and Trichodina hafizuddini Asmat, 2005 were morphologically studied and described with using the silver nitrate impregnation technique. Trichodina pseudoheterodentata was isolated from the gills of Mystus bleekeri, while Trichodina hafizuddini from the gills of Amblypharyngodon mola...

This paper concerns the determination of the share of fungi of the Saccharomyces genus in the mycobiota of the gastrointestinal tract of patients with colorectal cancer. The biological material were fungi isolated from the mouth, oesophagus, duodenum, stomach, large intestine and anus of 92 patients with colorectal cancer. They were subjected to standard mycological diagnostic testing. The analysis was only carried out on isolates containing fungi of the Saccharomyces genus. In 140 isolates (24.5% of all positive results), the species S...

The nematode Ashworthius sidemi is a typical parasite of Asiatic deer, particularly sika deer (Cervus nippon). It was probably first carried into Poland by migrating red deer. The aim of the present study was to determine the prevalence and intensity of A. sidemi infection in roe deer and red deer in the Lower Silesian Wilderness in the winter season 2015/2016. Parasitological necropsy of 34 abomasa of red deer from Forest District Ruszów was performed. The prevalence of A. sidemi infection was found to be 91...

Trichomonas tenax, cosmopolitan flagellate inhabiting human oral cavity, is the etiological agent of oral trichomonosis associated with gingival and periodontium deterioration. Purpose of this studies was to investigate the prevalence of infection with Trichomonas tenax identified by molecular techniques amplifying the region of ITS1-5.8S rRNA-ITS2 specific for T. tenax. The study included 498 persons: diabetic, renal transplant, rheumatoid arthritis patients and the control group. Prevalence of T. tenax in oral cavity was 10...

Cutaneous leishmaniosis (CL) is treated with pentavalent antimony (SbV) as a first-line drug, while amphotericin B and paromomycin are potential alternatives in antimonial- resistant isolates. However, the mechanisms of drug resistance remain unclear. The present study analyses the gene expression of RNA polymerase II (RNAP II) and J-binding protein 1 (JBP1), and J-binding protein 2 (JBP2) in Leishmania major after exposure to drugs in vitro. L. major (MRHO/IR/75/ER) promastigotes were exposed to various concentrations of glucantime, paromomycin and amphotericin B for 72 hours...

This review summarizes known data on the species composition of nematodes in 24 species of rodents inhabiting the territory of Armenia (South of Lesser Caucasus). The studied rodents include members of some cosmopolitan species (Mus musculus, Rattus norvegicus, Rattus rattus), as well as endemic and narrow-areal species (Meriones vinogradovi, Spermophilus xanthoprymnus, Microtus schidlovskii, Mesocricetus brandti, Sciurus anomalus). The taxonomical identity of the nematode species reported by previous authors is discussed with regard to present knowledge about helminth fauna of rodents...

The developmental cycles of all B. burgdorferi s.l. genospecies present typical, main pattern described in the 90thies. The simple scheme might be modified according to the biology of species and hosts preference. Central European genospecies of B. burgdorferi s.l. can be associated with four groups of hosts playing the role of animal reservoirs. The group 1 contains genospecies associated with rodents as primary animal reservoir – B. afzelii, B. garinii, B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, strains B. bavariensis (B...

During parasitological studies of 23 Eurasian coot Fulica atra (Linnaeus, 1758), 91 nematodes were isolated. Three of them, found in the proventriculus, were identified as Tetrameres globosa (Linstow, 1879). This paper presents the morphological characteristics of the discovered males of T. globosa.
