      Abstract: Babesia bigemina plays an important role in causing liver and kidney dysfunction in affected animals. The aim of this study evaluating the toxic effect of babesiosis on liver and kidney by measuring biochemical parameters and pathological tissue changes in infected animals with B. Bigemina and chose the best method of treatment. A total of 40 cattle age 1-3 years 30 were suffered from increase in temperatures, off food, Hemoglobin urea, red water from endemic area with babesia. Take sample from infected animals & examine it with microscopic examination found babesia bigemina and confirm by inoculation of heparinized blood from this animals in rats and found rats death at fifth day from infection and histopathological exam found babesia in piroplasma form in pathological tissue of rat’s liver & kidney. The infected animals were divided into three groups each group 10 animals untreated group use as control positive and treated groups divided into two groups first group treated with imidocarb only and the second group use imidocarb and lincomcyn as antibiotic drug and compare between two groups by measuring liver& kidney function improvement and compare two groups with negative and positive group which method of treatment more effective in treatment of babesia & decrease toxic effect of babesia.

  • Isolation and Characterization of Microbial Contamination from Computer
           Accessories used in Different Department of Hazara University and
           Diagnostic Laboratories of District Mansehra, Pakistan

      Abstract: 150 samples were collected from computer accessories used in Hazara University and different diagnostic laboratories of Mansehra, examined for the total bacterial count and maximum growths were observed. Samples were analyzed for further identification of micro-organisms such as E.coli, Klebsiella, S taph. aureus and Staph. epidermidis . These organisms were detected in the percentage of 46.66 of E. coli, 20% of Klebsiella, 16.66% of S. aureus & 16.66% of S. Epidermidis and identified on selective media, i.e. EMB agar and Mannitol salt agar. Furthermore, biochemical tests, including IMVIC Test, Catalase Test and Coagulase Tests were performed to confirm the presence of micro-organisms and their susceptibility also checked against different standard antibiotics and their zone of inhibitions were measured and noticed. E.coli showed maximum resistance of 97.36% against Erythromycin, Klebsiella showed against Amoxil + Clavolunic acid about 83.83%, Staph aureus showed against Erythromycin about 64.64% and Staph. e pidermidis resistance was 90.9% against Erythromycin and Gentamycin. E.coli and Klebsiell a showed maximum sensitivity for Meropenem 67.22% and 72.72% respectively while S taph. aureus and Staph. epidermidis maximum sensitivity for Vancomycin about 82.82% and 72.72% respectively. These results indicate that the computer accessories might act as environmental vehicles for the transmission of potentially pathogenic bacteria in our surroundings and also indicate the need for increasing awareness among computer users on cleaning of such surfaces or disinfection and adequate hand-washing hygiene.
