  The present research was conducted on Hubbard Isa Starbro broilers to evaluate the dynamics of probiotics relating to balanced growth of intestinal flora and histological reactions and changes within the crop and cecal tissues. A total of eighty day-old broiler chicks were divided into four groups of equal numbers as group A (Probiotics fed group vaccinated), B (Probiotics fed group nonvaccinated), C (Conventional fed group vaccinated) and D (Conventional fed group nonvaccinated). Group C and D were taken as control birds fed with commercial ration and groups A and B as experimental birds were fed with commercial ration with the addition of 2 g probiotics (Protexin® Boost)/10 L drinking water upto 6th week of age. The effect of probiotics with regard to clearing bacterial infections and regulating intestinal flora was evaluated by determining the TVC and TLC of the crop and cecum samples of probiotics and conventional fed groups at the 2nd, 4th and 6th week of age. The result revealed competitive antagonism. The result of the study evidenced that probiotic organisms inhibited some nonbeneficial pathogens by occupying intestinal wall space. It has been demonstrated that broilers fed with probiotics had a tendency to display pronounced intestinal histological changes such as active impetus in cell mitosis and increased nuclear size of cells, than the controls. It is obviously found from this research work that probiotics supplementation promoted significant influence on intestinal microbial balance related with pronounced intestinal histological changes.

  An experiment was conducted to develop washed cell fowl cholera (WCFC) vaccine with virulent avian Pasteurella multocida (PM 38) serotype 1 (X-73). A total of 20 Fayoumi birds of either sex of 10 weeks aged were divided into two groups as group A (immunized with washed cell fowl cholera vaccine) and group B (unvaccinated control). Primary vaccination was given through IM route in each birds of group A and booster dose was given through SC route after 15 days of primary vaccination. The presence of antibody against P. multocida was determined by slide agglutination test (SAT) and growth inhibition test (GIT). The degree of antibody levels of prevaccination and post vaccination sera were determined by passive haemagglutination assay (PHA). Sera mean PHA titres at 15, 21, 28 and 42 days post-vaccination in group A were 30.4±4.43, 46.4±6.06, 67.2±11.14 and 134.4±22.28 respectively. The present results revealed that WCFC vaccine worked satisfactory in terms of protection rate against Avian Pasteurellosis. It was also demonstrated that experimental WCFC vaccine conferred 80% protection against challenge infection when all chickens of control group failed to survive against challenge infection.

  The study was carried out to investigate the serological epidemiology of brucellosis in cows of Mymensingh districts of Bangladesh. Out of 250 animals tested, 2% showed positive reaction. The higher prevalence of bovine brucellosis was recorded in pregnant cows (3.45%) than non-pregnant cows (1.23%). The age wise prevalence of brucellosis in cows older than 4 years of age were found to be more susceptible to infection. The prevalence of brucellosis in cows above four years of age was recorded 2.56% whereas, 1.10% positive cases were found in cows having less than 4 years of age. The prevalence of brucellosis in cows with repeat breeders, previous abortion and retention of placenta was recorded 1(1.64%), 3(12%) and 2(7.41%) respectively. The highest prevalence was recorded in cows with a history of previous abortion. The prevalence was higher in retention of placenta in comparison with repeat breeder cases.
