isolation and identification of mycobacteria from cattle slaughtered in pakistan.specimens of lung, liver and mesenteric lymph node from cows and buffaloes slaughtered in the lahore area were cultured to investigate the type of mycobacteria involved in bovine tuberculosis. employing the concentration method, 56 out of 530 cattle were found to be culture positive for acid-fast bacteria, 48 being mycobacterium bovis and eight atypical mycobacteria. no m tuberculosis or m avium was isolated. most of the isolated m bovis strains were found to be highly virulent for rabbits.1979382608
molecular detection of m. tuberculosis and m. bovis and hematological and biochemical analyses in agricultural sprayers exposed to pesticides: a cross-sectional study in punjab, pakistan during 2014-2016.we determined the correlation between a pesticide exposure, physical health and susceptibility toward tuberculosis along with hematological indices and liver enzymes' alterations in sprayers exposed to pesticides. molecular detection of mycobacterium tuberculosis and mycobacterium bovis was detected by targeting histone-like protein (hupb) gene. the wbc (white blood cells) and rbc (red blood cells) levels of male sprayers and non-sprayers were significantly different (p<0.05). in female spray wo ...201728145400
detection of mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis in tissue samples of cattle and buffaloes.tissue samples were collected at random from cattle (bos taurus) and buffalo (bubalus bubalis) from an abattoir of the district of lahore and were analyzed for the presence of mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis and mycobacterium bovis through acid-fast staining and polymerase chain reaction (pcr). body condition of animals and diarrhea were recorded. most of the animals were emaciated. diarrhea was noticed in 15.6% of buffaloes and 19.2% of cattle. intestinal pathology was observed in 2 ...201019816784
