A viva of master’s student at the College of Veterinary Medicine/University of Al-Qadisiyah that focusing on the quantitative molecular diagnosis of the types of theileriosis parasites in sheep associated with anaplasmosis.

On Monday, October 31, 2022, Assistant Professor Dr. Ali Hadi Abbas, a lecturer in the Veterinary Microbiology Department / Faculty of Veterinary Medicine / University of Kufa participated in the viva of master’s student at the College of Veterinary Medicine/University of Al-Qadisiyah that focusing on the quantitative molecular diagnosis of the types of theileriosis parasites in sheep associated with anaplasmosis.
The dissertation discussed the diagnosis of some types of blood parasites (Theileria) using the molecular technique (polymerase chain reaction), which is associated with infection with anaplasm.
The dissertation aimed at clarifying the concomitant infection between the types of Theileria and measuring the percentage of parasitism for each type, as well as the infection associated with Theileria with anaplasmosis, as they are all pathogens transmitted by ticks that target the leukocytes of sheep (both of which reduce the host’s immunity). As well as investigating mutations in the Tapin 1 gene, which Represents an important biomarker to monitor the spread of drug resistance against buparvacone used to treat theileria in sheep.
