animal reservoirs of visceral leishmaniasis in india.visceral leishmaniasis (vl) is a disease that has both zoonotic and anthroponotic etiologies. in india, vl is endemic, considered to be anthroponotic, and caused by leishmania donovani . anthroponotic diseases are maintained by transmission from human to human and to a lesser extent from human to animals. serum samples from 1,220 animals from 7 human vl endemic districts of bihar, india, were tested for antibodies to a recombinant kinetoplast antigen (rk39 antigen) present in amastigotes of visc ...201322765517

trace elemental analysis of extracted dust from lungs and lymph nodes of domestic animals using x-ray fluorescence technique.samples of dust extracted from the lungs and lymph nodes of certain domestic animals from west bengal, orissa, bihar provinces of india were quantitatively analysed using photon excited energy dispersive x-ray fluorescence technique. thin specimens were prepared for analysis to minimize matrix enhancement and absorption effects. amongst the various elements analysed, hg, fe, cu, zn and pb were found to be present in appreciable amounts. an important finding was the presence of a very high concen ...19807419324
