Beimnet Adugna1, Abdallahi Abdurehman1*, Yimer Muktar1, Shihun Shimelis1 and Nuredin Mohammed1

A cross sectional study was conducted from November 2017 to April 2018 at Addis Ababa abattoir and kera market place with the objectives of assessing pre and post hide and skin defects. The study was carried out through questionnaire survey and observational study. All the respondents were males. Among the respondents, 30.0% were not educated, 41.67% came from Oromia region and 32.0% of the respondents were farmers and 30 (50%) described the slaughter of animals at home and majority of them prefer sheep (25%) for slaughter.

Cryptosporidium parvum Co-Infection on the Magnitude of Escherichia coli O157:H7 Shedding in Experimentally Inoculated Pigs

Elizabeth M. Antaki-Zukoski1,2, Xunde Li1,2, Patricia A. Pesavento3, John M. Adaska3,4, Barbara A. Byrne3Tran HB Nguyen1, Bruce R Hoar5, Michele T Jay-Russell2,6 and Edward R Atwill1,2*

Escherichia coli O157:H7 [E. coli O157:H7] and Cryptosporidium parvum [C. parvum] are zoonotic pathogens that have potential for economic impact worldwide.  Neonatal animals are especially vulnerable to these types of pathogens. The significance of single vs. concurrent [multiple] infections is unclear. Our objective was to determine differences in the magnitude of daily shedding and colonization by E. coli O157:H7 between pigs co-infected with C. parvum and pigs inoculated only with E. coli O157:H7.  Fifteen out of 27 weaned 2-month-old pigs were inoculated with a C.

Effect of Benzoic Acid and its Chemical Analogues on Membrane Resistance against Osmotic Pressure in Isolated Cattle Erythrocytes: A Comparative Study with Other Animal Species

Hitoshi Mineo1* and Masaharu Moriyoshi2

We determined the effects of benzoic acid and its derivatives on osmotic fragility (OF) in cattle red blood cells (RBCs) in vitro. Cattle RBCs were exposed to these substances at 0-100 mM in a buffer solution for 1 hour and then the 50% hemolysis was determined by soaking in 0.1-0.8% NaCl solution. OF was determined as the NaCl concentration inducing 50% hemolysis, for which was colorimetrically measured by concentration of released hemoglobin. Benzoic acid, heptanoic acid and cyclohexanecarboxylic acid tended to decrease OF, but this change was not statistically significant (N.S).
