Coccidiosis is caused by protozoan parasites belongs to genus Eimeria
species which are intracellular parasites of intestinal epithelium.
Over 1000 species of Eimeria are discovered out of which seven species of genus Eimeria
are recognized in coccidiosis infections affecting poultry and each species has characteristic virulence, pathogenicity, site of infection and immunogenicity (Williams, 1998).
Coccidiosis is recognized as major diseases of poultry which is caused by single-celled protozoon belonging to genus Eimeria
having different species (Abbas et al., 2012; Chapman, 2014).
At 14th day post administration of graded doses, 30 chickens from each group were randomly selected and used to monitor cellular and humoral immune responses, while remaining birds (n=20) in each group were challenged with mixed species of genus Eimeria
for therapeutic evaluation.
Coccidia of the genus Eimeria
infects the intestinal epithelia of chickens, turkeys, and some mammalian hosts.
Eimeriosis is an intestinal disease caused by various species of protozoan parasites within the genus Eimeria
(Mehlhorn, 2014) and considered to be a disease of major economic importance affecting many species of farm and domestic animals.
Coccidiosis is an intestinal disease caused by a protozoan in the genus Eimeria
. These one-celled creatures are host-specific, which means that goats cannot get them from chickens, dogs, horses or any other animal.
Coccidia identified belonged to the genus Eimeria
for both deer and cattle.
Coccidiosis of chicken is an enteric parasitic disease caused by multiple species of the protozoan parasites of genus Eimeria
(Apicomplexa: Eucoccidia: Eimeriidae) and is one of the commonest and economically most important diseases of poultry world-wide (Shirley et al., 2005).
These parasites, which belong to the genus Eimeria
, live and multiply in the intestinal tract and cause tissue damage that hinders the bird's ability to digest feed and absorb nutrients.
Coccidia from the genus Eimeria
are the most common microparasites of the Alpine marmot [15, 16].
Sheep eimeriosis is an infectious disease caused by protozoa of the genus Eimeria
. It is a parasitic disease that is distributed worldwide and primarily affects young sheep that are raised under various management systems.
