WoS: Szakterületek: This study was carried out during the period from May to December on thirty crossbred female cows in Sherbeen city, Dakahlia Governorate and two to four years of age.
Twenty cows suffered from fever, anorexia, increase in respiratory and heart rates, anemia, pale to icteric mucous membranes and red urine. Babesiosis was diagnosed clinically and confirmed by detection of intra-erythrocytic stages of the Babesia in Giemsa stained blood film, polymerase chain reaction amplification PCR and sequencing of 18S rRNA gene.
Hemoparasites were detected in thirteen blood samples by hemoparasites listát examination, whereas PCR were positive in twenty. On the other hand there was a significant leucopenia and thrombocytopenia along with a significant eosinophilia. The biochemical findings of infected cows revealed a significant increase in activities of serum alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferases, hemoparasites listát phosphatase and lactate dehydrogenase.
In contrast a significant decrease in serum levels of total proteins, albumin, globulins, sodium and potassium. While serum bilirubin total, direct and indirecturea and creatinine levels were significantly increased. It concluded that molecular detection of B. Treatment infected cows with imidocarb improves the clinical signs, hematological and biochemical parameters that indicate recovery of infected cows.
