Disease relevance of Coccidiosis

  • The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of Eimeria acervulina infection (duodenal coccidiosis) on cadmium (Cd) toxicity and zinc (Zn) status in the young chick [1].
  • However, levamisole given at .25 mg/kg body weight by IP injection 3 days prior to the coccidiosis vaccine resulted in the greatest potentiation of the immune response [2].
  • Estradiol plus progesterone (EP) implants have been shown to favorably alter the time course or decrease the severity of many of the clinical manifestations associated with coccidiosis and endotoxemia in calves [3].
  • The numbers of confirming studies on individual diseases and vitamins deemed to be reasonably adequate to demonstrate specific interactions were limited to vitamin A in coccidiosis, in ascariasis, and probably in infectious coryza and of vitamin K in coccidiosis [4].
  • Sulphaquinoxaline in the diet for four days was shown to achieve at least an 85 per cent higher blood level than nine other sulphonamides in chicks, and the efficacies of various trimethoprim/sulphaquinoxaline regimes in the diet or in the drinking water were demonstrated against pasteurellosis, colisepticaemia and five kinds of coccidiosis [5].

  • These results confirm the role of IFN-gamma in resistance to coccidiosis and further emphasise the complexity of the immune response in this disease [19].
  • In comparative studies of coccidiosis in chickens, in-vivo and in-vitro studies revealed that interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor and transforming growth factor-beta are induced following Eimeria infection [20].
  • These results provide the first direct evidence that chIFN-gamma exerts an inhibitory effect against Eimeria and provides a rational basis for use of this cytokine as a vaccine adjuvant against coccidiosis [21].
  • Large White male turkeys were raised to 20 wk of age on diets with varying kinds and levels of coccidiosis drug protection [22].
  • If hsp70 is mandatory for parasite survival, it may prove to be an appropriate antigen for a vaccine against bovine coccidiosis [23].
