  In the present study, effect of different dose rates of synthetic androgen 17-alpha Methyl Testosterone (MT) i.e., 50, 75 and 100 mg of hormone in per kg of feed, on sex reversal and growth performance of Mozambique tilapia was evaluated. MT was administrated orally by using pellet dry starter and Ethanol Alcohol, diet to tilapia fry for 21 days in glass aquaria. The fry were also kept for 2 weeks after feeding to monitor its growth performance. At the end of the experiment the sex ratio was determined by examining the gonads after dissecting the fish. Growth performance was monitored by recording the morphometric characteristics. Wet body weight and total length of fish on start of feeding end of feeding and two weeks after feeding were measured. The results of the present study showed that all MT receiving treatment showed a significantly higher male proportion than the control experiment. Dose rate of 75 mg kg-1 MT of feed resulted in maximum male population (98.09%) with 1.91% sterilized fish. The dose rate of 75 mg kg-1 MT gave the maximum gain in body weight i.e., 11.8 g, which is 1.2 times greater than the control.

Background: Aspergillosis is one of the most important opportunistic infections after organ transplantation. Early diagnosis and initiation of appropriate antifungal therapy are key factors for better prognosis.

Methods: We reviewed the medical records of patients with solid organ transplantation with evidence of Aspergillus infections from December 2001 to January 2008, evaluating patient demographics, time of onset after transplantation, risk factors, radiologic appearance, diagnostic criteria, antifungal therapy, and outcome.

Results: We observed aspergillosis in 8 lung, 3 kidney, and 1 heart recipient, with overall mean age of 40.6 years. Seven cases of Aspergillus tracheobronchitis were diagnosed in lung transplant recipients, all of them in the first 6 months after transplantation. All patients responded to antifungal therapy and bronchoscopic debridement. We observed 5 cases of invasive pulmonary aspergillosis. Three patients survived in response to antifungal treatment. The two patients who died were treated with a combination of itraconazole and amphotericin B, whereas all cured patients had been treated with voriconazole alone or in combination with caspofungin.

Conclusion: It seems that the prognosis of aspergillosis in solid organ recipients is improving with new treatment regimens, particularly if they are used in early stages of infection.
