Hadi Shabani; Forough Talazade; Gholam Abbas Kaydani; Masoud Reza Seyfi Abad Shapouri

Articles in Press, Accepted Manuscript, Available Online from 13 January 2024

  An internationally identified syndrome that leads to deaths between domestic and ornamental pigeons, particularly after racing is Young Pigeon Disease Syndrome (YPDS). Pigeon circovirus (PiCV) is regarded as one of the potential factors in the occurrence of YPDS. This survey was conducted to determine ...  Read More

First report of ocular histoplasmosis in a horse from Iran: molecular, clinical and pathological findings

Mehran Ghaemi; Nasrolah Ahmadi; Hassan Sharifi Yazdi; Mohsen Ghane; Mohamad Sadegh Golvajooei

Volume 13, Issue 3 , September 2022, , Pages 455-459

  Histoplasma capsulatum is a dimorphic fungus that is traditionally classified in three varieties: Hc var. capsulatum, Hc var. duboisii, and Hc var. farciminosum (HCF). Cytology, hematology, pathology, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), sequencing, and phylogenetic analyses were applied on samples collected ...  Read More
