Recent Studies by M.P. Best and Co-Authors Add New Data to Veterinary Parasitology Findings (The diagnosis and management of a case of leishmaniosis in a dog imported to Australia) By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Current study results on Veterinary Parasitology have been published. According to news reporting originating from Brisbane, Australia, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "This case study discusses in detail for the first time the diagnosis and management of a case of leishmaniosis in a dog imported to Australia. The dog presented with epistaxis and a non-regenerative anaemia five years after being imported from Europe." Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "Protozoa were identified within macrophages in bone marrow and splenic cytology. A Leishmania indirect fluorescent antibody test was performed and was positive while an Ehrlichia canis antibody test was negative. Polymerase chain reaction of the ITS-1 and ITS-2 regions of skin, lymph node, spleen and bone marrow were all positive for Leishmania infantum. The dog was treated with amphotericin B with a strong clinical response. The importance of thorough diagnostics in non-endemic areas, particularly Australia, is discussed. Treatment with amphotericin B is discussed." According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Vigilance, disease reporting and response frameworks are recommended for non-endemic areas."
