Astaxanthine extracted from Shrimp shell on the blood factors of common carp Cyprinus caprio. A combination of hexane and acetone (1: 1, V/V) was employed for astaxanthine extraction. Astaxanthine extracted was added at levels of 50, 0.10, 0.15 mg/kg to four experimental diets that fed to common carp fingerling (Cyprinus carpio) for 60 days. Chemical composition to the control experimental diet protein, fat, ash, moisture content was 41, 6, 7.6, 7.11% respectively. Blood samples were taken from the caudal vein of fish after 0, 30 and 60 days feeding. Results showed that the highest values observed in fish fed diets with 150 mg/kg in blood factors PVC, BRC, WRC, HB were recorded 36%, 1.45 106 mm3, 33.6 103mm3, 14gm/dl respectively compared to control diet. It was concluded that supplementation of astaxanthin at 150 mg/kg increase immune system in D. carpio.

Wind energy is used as an alternative source of electric power generation. It is considered one of the most important discoveries that led to a technological breakthrough to increase the efficiency of energy production. Moreover, its future looks promising as the price of its generation is descending rapidly. The Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) reported that the average growth rate of wind power generators was 30% from 1996 to 2011. At the end of 2011, commercial wind power installed nearly 240 GW in a group of more than 80 countries [1].At the beginning of the development of wind energy technology, researchers tended to create larger advanced machines with more powerful generators, taller towers, and longer rotors. Expanding wind turbine systems require new designs, configuration modifications, and innovative solutions [2]. The design and performance of wind turbines have been given great attention to reach the highest productivity. Wind energy technologies got a great concern in the early 1980s concerning the installed capacity in the available sites in the world, as presented in Figure 1 [3].

Background and Aim: Aspergillus fumigatus is a zoonotic fungus that causes several diseases in humans ranging from allergic reaction to fatal disseminated invasive infection, especially in immunocompromised patients. This study aimed to investigate the incidence of invasive A. fumigatus in patients admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU) of Assiut University Hospital, highlight the factors associated with their infection, and determine the antifungal effect of thyme nano-emulsion (TNE) and carvacrol nano-emulsion (CNE) on isolated A. fumigatus strains.Materials and Methods: Mycological culture method and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were used in the identification of A. fumigatus in 630 blood samples collected from 210 patients. TNE and CNE at five concentrations (1%, 2%, 4%, 6%, and 8%) and average sizes of 90.3 and 75.6 nm, respectively, were characterized by transmission electron microscopy. Their effect on A. fumigatus isolate growth was evaluated by the well-diffusion method and SEM, which was used for the detection of the degenerative effect of A. fumigatus ultrastructure.Results: A. fumigatus was detected in 54 of 210 (25.7%) patients in the ICU. Advanced age and chronic diseases were considered important risk factors for invasive aspergillosis, especially in patients with more than 1 clinical disease. TNE and CNE showed an inhibitory effect on A. fumigatus isolates, which significantly increased with high concentrations. The respective values for TNE at concentrations of 6% and 8% were 6±0.41 mm and 15±0.67 mm. CNE completely inhibited A. fumigatus growth at concentrations of 4%, 6%, and 8%, while mean …

Abstract This study examined Red Sea fishes at Hurghada and Safaga, Egypt, for the presence of trematodes of the superfamily Hemiuridae Looss, 1899. Merlucciotrema praeclarum Manter, 1934 was detected from Caesio lunaris (Perciformes: Caesionidae) and Cyatholecithochirium sp. from Epinephelus tauvina (Perciformes: Serranidae). Standard methods for collecting and examining marine fishes, for processing and illustrating specimens, and for studying the morphometric characteristics of the parasites by light microscopy and taxonomic identification were employed. For fine structure illustrating of Cyatholecithochirium sp. scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used. The main characteristics of the first species were similar to those of M. praeclarum, as the body being small and oval, and the ventral sucker being very large. In the middle of the body, the vitellarium consists of seven small lobed masses close to the ovary, and the excretory vesicle is Y-shaped and divided posterior to the ventral sucker, with the arms being united in the fore-body. The Cyatholecithochirium sp. matched the genus Cyatholecithochirium Yamaguti, 1970 in overall appearance; however, it differed from the previously described forms in the ventral sucker being located in the middle of the body, the seminal vesicle being globular and lying posterior to the ventral sucker near to the middle of the body, and the ovary lying close to the ecsoma. This paper is the first report of the trematode parasites Merlucciotrema praeclarum in Caesio lunaris and Cyatholecithochirium sp. in Epinephelus tauvina from the Red Sea in Egypt.

A general investigation of digenean parasites was carried out from four fish species; Fahka puffer fish (Tetraodon lineatus), Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus), Sharp tooth catfish (Clarias gariepinus) and Bayad (Bagrus bajad) from different localities of the River Nile in Qena and Aswan governorates, Egypt during October 2015 to August 2016. Four adult digeneans were found, belonging to four genera; Astiotrema, Orientocreadium, Glossidium and Acanthostomum. These were Astiotrema impletum 90% (27/ 30), Orientocreadium batrachoides 83.33% (25/ 30), Glossidium pedatum 60% (12/ 20) and Acanthostomum spiniceps 86.66% (26/ 30). Additionally, two larval trematodes (metacercariae) were detected, belonging to two genera; Clinostomum and Euclinostomum. These were Clinostomum complantum 85.57% (60/ 70) and Euclinostomum heterostomum 70% (35/ 50). Morphological and morphometric characters were discussed for each species in details and compared with the previously published data. This study considered Glossidium pedatum, Acanthostomum spiniceps and Euclinostomum heterostomum as new records from the River Nile in Qena Governorate.

Haemogregarines are haemoparasites (Apicomplexa: Adeleiorina) of all class of vertebrates nearly, worldwide. The present study was aimed to establish and describe the developmental stages of a Haemogregarina species infecting Nile monitor (Varanus niloticus). The captured Nile monitors were three animals with 80-100 cm in length, they captured from Qena province, Southern Egypt, and thin blood films were prepared and microscopically examined. Also, small pieces of the liver and the lungs of the infected animals were separated and prepared for sectioning, which stained and examined. The recovered parasites have rod-like bodies, infecting the erythrocytes only, with a single stage, in a parasitophorous vacuole and have no karyolitic effect. The parasitaemia level was found up to 5010,000 counted erythrocytes. Only gamonts have been recognized in blood smears, and they were found in two forms; the first form is short, thick (called short gamont) and measured 11.02 × 2.65 µm. The second form was found long and thin (called long gamont), with a subterminal nucleus, measured 14.18 × 2.45 µm. Both forms cause either slightly or strong displacement of the host cell nucleus. The infected erythrocytes had either slightly or markedly hypertrophied in presence of short and long gamonts. The infected erythrocyte measured 18.05 × 8.87 µm, but the uninfected erythrocyte was 16.52 × 8.77 µm in length and width, respectively. Schizogony phase was observed in the lungs only of the infected Nile monitor, where the meronts were formed within parasitophorous vacuoles. The parasite nucleus divided many times, and the produced nuclei are …

Based on light and scanning electron microscopy, a Cucullanus species (Nematoda: Cucullanidae Railliet and Henry, 1915) was isolated from the intestine of the commercially important marine fish Mulloidichthys flavolineatus (Perciformes: Mullidae) from Hurghada, Egypt, as a new host and locality record. Cucullanus cirratus Müller, 1777 is primarily characterized by the dorsoventral oral opening, surrounded by narrow membranous alae (collarette) supported by a row of numerous minute teeth, four submedian cephalic papillae, a pair of small lateral amphids, and a funnel-shaped pseudobuccal capsule. The excretory pore is located at the level of the posterior half of the esophagus between the nerve ring and the intestine. The intestine is simple and without cecum. Males show unequal caudal spicules, with the left spicule measuring 1.20–1.41 mm and the right spicule measuring 0.644–0.736 mm. There are 10 pairs of caudal papillae, including five preclocal and five postclocal pairs as well as a pair of small phasmids. The tail is simple and conical in both sexes.
