  The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate histo-pathological, haemotological and biochemical changes in broiler chicken naturally infected with Eimeria tenella. A Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) based assay was also done for the detection, identification and differentiation of pathogenic species of Eimeria in poultry. Post mortem examination revealed petechial haemorrhages, oedema, necrosis and sloughing of caecal epithelium. Histopathological evidence showed leakage of blood, oedema and necrosis. Haemotological studies revealed that coccidial infection caused significant decrease in the value of haemoglobin and Packed Cell Volume (PCV). The value of Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) and Mean Corpuscular Haemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) revealed that caecal coccidiosis resulted in macrocytic hypochromic anaemia. Biochemical serum analysis of coccidial infected chicken showed a significant increase in level of glucose, Alanine Aminotransferase (ALT) and Aspartate Aminotransferase (AST) while there was a significant decrease in the level of alkaline phosphatase (SAP) and cholesterol. In PCR using specific primers for E. tenella only the ITS 1 regions of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) could be amplified.

  Formability, an important mechanical property of the sheet metal is strongly reliant on the crystallographic texture. Consequently deep drawability is also influenced. This paper deals with the perspective of crystallographic texture and its relevance with the formability of AA 5052 aluminium alloy sheet of 2 mm thickness annealed at four different temperatures namely 200 °C, 250 °C, 300 °C and 350 °C. Forming limit diagrams determined and plotted experimentally, their crystallographic textures obtained and their ODF plots prepared by X-ray diffraction were analyzed. The Forming limit diagrams (FLDs) of AA 5052 sheets annealed under different temperatures were examined with respect to the crystallographic texture point of view. The FLDs and crystallographic textures were then correlated with normal anisotropy of the sheet metal. It was found that the formability of aluminium alloy AA 5052 annealed at 350 °C possessed good formability, optimal texture and high normal anisotropy value.

  An outbreak of coccidiosis in laboratory rats has been described in this study. Clinically, out of 50 rats, 30 were died after showing symptoms of anorexia, emaciation and diarrhea. Post mortem examination showed the large and small intestine distended with necrotic and sloughed off mucosal epithelial cells with intestinal content. The examination of the gut contents revealed numerous Eimeria oocysts. After sporulation, the oocysts were identified as those of Eimeria nieschulzi. The infection due to Eimeria nieschulzi is confirmed by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) after amplifying partial (~1.6 kb) nuclear 18S rDNA from DNA of E. nieschulzi. The histopathological examination showed severe damage of the lamina propria of the intestinal mucosa with numerous coccidian developmental stages in the epithelium of small intestine. Biochemical analysis of serum from infested rats presented a significant increase in serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST), glucose, total proteins, globulin and inorganic phosphorous while a decrease in alkaline phosphatase and blood urea nitrogen with insignificant changes in potassium, sodium, magnesium and chloride.
