Mice and rats are animals commonly used in research and laboratory testing. Compared to other animal species, they harbor many more zoonotic agents. Hymenolepis nana is a common tapeworm that parasitizes both humans and rodents. Although this...
Cadmium (Cd) is a common environmental toxicant that has harmful effects on plants, animals, and humans. The present study evaluated the protective effects of Fragaria ananassa methanolic extract (SME) on cadmium chloride (CdCl2)-induced neuronal...

Leishmaniasis is one of the most significant vector-borne syndromes of individuals. This parasitic infection can be affected by many species of Leishmania, most of which are zoonotic. Natural products have made and are continuing to make important...
Background: Schistosomiasis is an acute and chronic zoonotic parasitic disease caused by trematode worms. The host inflammatory response to schistosome eggs leads to perioval granulomata formation, mainly in the liver and intestine. This study...
The diversity and importance of Echinococcus species in domesticated animals in Saudi Arabia are poorly understood. In this study, 108 singular (hydatid) cysts were collected from goats (n = 25), sheep (n = 56) and camels (n = 27). DNA was extracted...
Leishmania species are parasites that multiply within phagocytes and cause several clinical diseases characterized by single or multiple ulcerations. One of the complications that can induce tissue damage and the resulting scars is caused by...
Abstract: Bacterial infections of cutaneous leishmaniasis cause skin ulcers on mice, resulting in increased tissue deterioration, and these infections can be controlled with liquid allicin. To isolate and identify the incidences of real secondary...
    AbstractBackground Leishmania is a unicellular protozoan parasite that produces several human diseases, rangingfrom localized self-healing cutaneous lesions to deadly visceral infections.Objectives The effect of allicin on the growth of...
This study was carried out to investigate role of some stressful ecological factors on cultured tilapia species, 86 Tilapia zillii and 118 Sarotherodon galilaeus in relation to metacercarial affections. Physicochemical parameters of water samples...
Cutaneous leishmaniasis is caused by protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania,L.major (wet cutaneous leishmaniasis) and L.tropica (dry cutaneous leishmaniasis).They are transmitted as promastigotes to mammalian hosts by the bite of infected...
