Turkey Local Time


Canine babesiosis, a protozoal disease, has been denoted as one of the most prevalent vector-borne diseases in Turkey and worldwide. Babesiosis is usually spread through the bite of an infected tick to a healthy dog, where the parasite Babesia attacks mammalian red blood cells and can cause various levels of haemolytic anaemia, splenomegaly, thrombocytopenia, and fever. Exist in two forms, the large Babesia (Babesia canis, Babesia Rossi, Babesia vogeli, and Babesia bigemina) and the small Babesia (Babesia gibsoni, Babesia comrade, and Babesia vulpes), Babesia show varying geographical/spatial distribution, clinical appearance, and vector specificity.

From a clinical perspective, the practical methods to diagnose babesiosis among dogs involve:

a) Microscopy evaluation (the easiest and most preferred diagnostic test).

b) Molecular diagnostic approach (with a sensitivity higher than microscopy evaluation).

c) PCR-based methods.

e) Lateral flow immunoassay (such as Bioguard VLabs 4BX Rapid Test Kits), i.e., based on specific Ag/Ab interaction that can detect relevant vector-borne disease pathogens.

From this webinar, you will learn:

• A detailed incidence of Canine babesiosis
• Spatial distribution
• Etiology
• Diagnosis
• Treatment


Graduated from TED Ankara College in 1994, Dr. Kerem URAL obtained his Ph.D. from the Department of Veterinary Internal Medicine at Ankara University in 2000. Dr. Kerem has worked at several veterinary internal medicine clinics in Turkey and other European countries like Germany, Spain, Italy, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland. He also has a strong research background and has more than 200 research articles and 250 oral/poster presentations to his account and is an advisor of more than 50 Ph.D. and MS theses to date. His area of interest is Veterinary Gastroentero-dermatology, gut-brain axis, nutraceuticals, phytotherapy, fecal microbiota transplantation, probiotics, and clinical microbiome analysis. Currently, Dr. Kerem is working as a professor at the Faculty of Veterinary, Department of Internal Medicine, Aydin Adnan Menderes University, in Aydin, Turkey.

Rise In The Use Of Nanotechnology in fighting Antibiotic Resistance

Since the discovery of the antibiotic Penicillin in 1928 and its successfully used in 1942 there are other antibiotics being discovered and introduced in the market. Antibiotics save lives, but anytime they are used, they can lead to antimicrobial resistance. Antimicrobial resistance is when germs like bacteria and fungi develop the ability to defeat the drugs designed to kill them. It means the germs are not killed and continue to grow. Also, the overuse and misuse of antibiotic medications in recent years have led to the emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

To tackle antibiotic resistance, nanotechnology is increasingly gaining traction in the veterinary pharmaceutical market as a substitute for veterinary antibiotics. Nanotechnology studies the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. In the veterinary pharmaceutical industry, nanotechnology improves diagnosis, treatment, animal growth promotion, and production.

Nanomaterials have major potential for treating antibiotic-resistant bacterial infections

Antimicrobial agents are replaced by alternative nanoparticles as they reduce the use of antibiotics and improve the detection of pathogenic bacteria. They are also used as drug delivery agents for new drugs and vaccine candidates to enhance their characteristics and performance and to reduce drug resistance in animal organisms.

Antimicrobial resistance can affect the health of both people and animals. Resistant germs can spread between people, animals, and the environment. Everyone can help improve antibiotic prescribing and use. This will help keep us healthy now, fight antimicrobial resistance, and ensure that these lifesaving antibiotics will be available for future generations.

To determine whether a bacterial infection is resistant to antibiotics, Bioguard Corporation has introduced the Antibiotic Susceptibility test kit in the market. Contact us at [email protected] to find out more about this tool.
