prevalence of coxiella burnetii infection among humans and domestic animals of rajasthan state, india.a total number of 1806 sera comprising 1049 humans and 757 animals from four ecologically different areas of rajasthan state were tested to determine the prevalence of complement-fixing (cf) antibodies to coxiella burnetii (c burnett). of the 1049 human and 757 animal sera tested, antibodies to c. burnetii were detected in 195 sera (18.6 per cent) and 187 sera (24.7 per cent), respectively. among humans, the prevalence of infection with c. burnetii was highest in the desert area of barmer distri ...1979574885

isolation of bluetongue virus from sheep in rajasthan state, india.a cytopathic agent was isolated in a baby hamster kidney (bhk)-21 cell-line from blood samples of cross-bred sheep showing typical bluetongue symptoms at avikanagar in rajasthan state, india. the cytopathic agent was identified as a bluetongue virus (btv) by immunofluorescence, the immunoperoxidase test and electron microscopy of bhk-21 cells infected with the new isolate. the new isolate was typed as btv serotype 1.19947949364
further studies on anthelmintic resistance in sheep at an organised farm in arid region of rajasthan.faecal egg count reduction test (fecrt) and in vitro egg hatch assay (eha) was performed on indian karakul (3/4 crosses of karakul with malpura, marwari and sonadi) transported from arid region campus, bikaner, where resistance was reported in 1996. fecrt revealed that fenbendazole and levamisole were 100% effective in reducing the egg counts. lc50 value on eha was 0.074 +/- 0.015 microg thiabendazole ml(-1). the faecal culture examination revealed the presence of haemonchus contortus only. it w ...199910223352
comparative anthelmintic activity of strategic sustained low-level administration of albendazole in feed pellets compared to single doses of closantel and tetramisole against natural ovine parasitic gastroenteritis.the strategic use of single therapeutic doses of closantel, tetramisole or sustained low-level administration of albendazole in feed pellets in controlling naturally acquired parasitic gastroenteritis in sheep was investigated on a farm in semi-arid rajasthan, india. a total of 303 5- to 6-month-old sheep were divided into three groups. two groups were dosed with single therapeutic doses of closantel and tetramisole and the third group was given a low-level medication with albendazole through fe ...199910504099
comparative efficacy of standard agid, ccie and competitive elisa for detecting bluetongue virus antibodies in indigenous breeds of sheep and goats in rajasthan, india.the sero-prevalence of antibodies against blue tongue virus (btv) in 408 local breeds of sheep in rajasthan state in india was investigated using standard agar gel immunodiffusion (agid) test. maximum seropositivities of 11.3% (13/115), 10.7% (13/121), 7.1% (11/155) and 5.9% (1/17) were recorded in the chokla, magra, nali and pugal breeds, respectively. out of 107 goat serum samples, 6 (5.6%) were agid positive. the performance of the standard agid, counter current immuno-electrophoresis (ccie) ...200515785128
estimates of (co)variance components and genetic parameters for growth traits in sirohi were collected over a period of 21 years (1988-2008) to estimate (co)variance components for birth weight (bwt), weaning weight (wwt), 6-month weight (6wt), 9-month weight (9wt), 12-month weight (12wt), average daily gain from birth to weaning (adg1), weaning to 6wt (adg2), and from 6wt to 12wt (adg3) in sirohi goats maintained at the central sheep and wool research institute, avikanagar, rajasthan, india. analyses were carried out by restricted maximum likelihood, fitting six animal models ...201120711812
genetic variation and relationship of six indian sheep breeds adapted to the northwestern arid zone of rajasthan.this study illustrates the genetic diversity and relationships within and among six indian sheep breeds of the northwestern arid region of rajasthan, based on microsatellite markers. the range of allele diversity was 7.72-9.56, and gene diversity was 0.686-0.766, revealing that these breeds possessed substantial amounts of genetic diversity. positive f (is) values suggested a deficit of heterozygotes in all six breeds. despite the declining status of the marwari, chokla, jaisalmeri, magra and pu ...201121264504
estimates of (co)variance components and genetic parameters for growth traits of avikalin sheep.(co)variance components and genetic parameters for various growth traits of avikalin sheep maintained at central sheep and wool research institute, avikanagar, rajasthan, india, were estimated by restricted maximum likelihood, fitting six animal models with various combinations of direct and maternal effects. records of 3,840 animals descended from 257 sires and 1,194 dams were taken for this study over a period of 32 years (1977-2008). direct heritability estimates (from best model as per likel ...201020373023
some observations on endemic fluorosis in domestic animals in southern rajasthan (india).chronic fluoride toxicity in the form of osteo-dental fluorosis was observed in cattle, buffaloes, sheep and goats from 21 villages of banswara, dungarpur and udaipur districts of southern rajasthan where the mean fluoride concentration in drinking water varied from 1.5 to 4.0 ppm. the prevalence of dental fluorosis in calves (< 1 year age) was greater than that in adult cattle and buffaloes. at a fluoride concentration in the water of 4.0 ppm, 100% of calves, 65.6% of buffaloes and 61.0% of cat ...199910598076
anthelmintic resistance on an organized sheep farm in india.monitoring anthelmintic resistance in strongyle nematodes by the faecal egg count reduction test and a commercial larval development assay on an organized sheep farm in the semi-arid area of rajasthan revealed the emergence of resistance to benzimidazoles and rafoxanide and a potential risk of the development of levamisole/tetramisole resistance. a benzimidazole/levamisole combination, avermectins and closantel were each found to be efficacious.200111474864
