first detection of an ignored parasite, encephalitozoon cuniculi, in different animal hosts in egypt.encephalitozoon cuniculi is an obligate intracellular microsporidian parasite that infects a wide range of mammalian hosts. the present study investigated the prevalence of e. cuniculi in different animal hosts from different provinces of egypt (alexandria, behera, and assuit) using serological (ifat and elisa) and molecular (pcr) assays. a total of 324 serum and 274 urine samples were collected from seven different species of animals (cattle, buffaloes, sheep, goat, rabbit, dog, and rat). the r ...201525547075
seroprevalence of antibodies to encephalitozoon cuniculi and toxoplasma gondii in farmed domestic rabbits in egypt.rabbit sera from ten commercial farms representing three provinces in northern egypt (behera, alexandria and khafr el-sheikh) were submitted to serological screening for encephalitozoon cuniculi using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and for toxoplasma gondii using an indirect hemagglutination test. antibodies against e. cuniculi were detected in 36/240 (15%) sera examined while antibodies against t. gondii showed a seroprevalence of 22/194 (11.34%). both infections were detected in all of t ...201020887397
