  This is the first case report of amebic dysentery due to infection of Entamoeba histolytica (E. histolytica) in a King Horseshoe bat. A fresh fecal sample was collected from a King Horseshoe Bat (Rhinolophus rex) and identified by microscopic examination, E. histolytica stool antigen detection kit, two PCR assays and DNA sequence analysis. A daily dose of 10 mg of metronidazole was given orally for 5 days and no amoeba was detected in the fecal sample after the treatment. The results of present study suggest that amoebiasis of bat should be monitored more closely in the future.

  Aims  To determine the incidence of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in China and to further identify population specific risk factors for GDM.

Methods  Following a universal GDM screening recommendation, 16 286 pregnant women who underwent a 50-g glucose challenge test from 18 cities in China were followed up through pregnancy. GDM was confirmed by oral glucose tolerance test according to American Diabetes Association criteria.

Results  The incidence of GDM was 4.3%. Previously reported risk factors for GDM, including advanced maternal age, pre-pregnancy obesity and family history of diabetes, were strongly associated with an elevated GDM risk. Moreover, after the adjustment for the above-mentioned risk factors, a history of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis, residency in south China and a history of spontaneous abortion were significantly associated with an increased GDM risk; adjusted odds ratio (OR) [95% confidence interval (95% CI)] were 1.97 (1.39, 2.80), 1.84 (1.59-2.13), and 1.46 (1.12, 1.91), respectively.

Conclusions  In this large study of GDM in Chinese women, advanced maternal age, pre-pregnancy overweight or obesity and family history of diabetes were confirmed to be risk factors. In addition, a history of recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis or spontaneous abortion and residency in south China appeared to be novel risk factors in this population.

  Lysozyme plays important role in vertebrates and invertebrates for its unique protein structure and enzyme activity. In the present study, the potential physiological function of the chicken lysozyme gene (LYZ) was studied by SNP. 329 J+ line Jinghai Yellow chicken were involved in this experiment. To determine gene mutations, DNA analysis of the LYZ gene, including Single Strand Confirmation Polymorphism (SSCP) and direct DNA sequencing, was performed. Chicken Body Weight (BW) were analyzed by GLM of SAS software. DNA sequencing demonstrated a G111A transition of exon 1, a T1426C transition and a C1492T transition of exon 2, all of them were silent mutations that caused no alteration in amino acid sequence. Statistical analysis indicated that, AA and CC genotype related with high BW, TT and CN genotype contributed to low BW. Therefore, results suggested that there was a possibility of the LYZ gene SNPs acting as a genetic marker for growth traits of Jinghai Yellow chicken.
