About Faculty of Vet Medicine

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1975. It was the first Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Libya. It is one of the citadels of science and knowledge at the University of Tripoli. This scientific institution works around the clock to meet the needs of the community of veterinarians and contributes to supporting the national economy. It values the care for animal health. It maintains increasing animal production, preserving human health and protecting the environment.

Salmonella Enteritidis’ Proteins produce in Vitro and in Vivo Protection against Colonization

Salmonella enterica can be considered as one of the most important causes of foodpoisoning with poultry thought to be the main source. Although S. Typhimurium, S. Enteritidis and the vast majority of other Salmonella serovars generally produce little systemic disease in adult chickens, they are able to colonize the alimentary tract of poultry. The two caeca are the main sites of the colonization of Salmonellae in chickens, and the bacteria can be easily harvested from the caeca for analysis. Bacterial proteins analysed utilizing SDS-PAGE showed differences between in vitro and in vivo that out of about 40 protein bands of in vitro preparation only a few (3-5) bands can be visualized from in vivo preparations. We suggested that some avian proteases might be responsible. Accordingly, and to investigate the hypothesis that bacterial-precipitated protein harvested from chickens is thought to be more protective than bacteria grown in broth culture, the immunogenicity of protein-precipitated vaccines harvested from chicken intestine and those from broth culture (in vitro), were compared using bacterial proteins as an orally inoculated vaccine candidate in chicken. The results demonstrated that the in vitro sonicated proteins obtained from a nutrient broth culture had a much better protective vaccine effect than the in vivo sonicated proteins preparations harvested from bacteria grown in chickens arabic 14 English 81

Load redistribution in walking and trotting Beagles with induced forelimb lameness

Objective: To evaluate the load redistribution mechanisms in walking and trotting dogs with induced forelimb lameness. Animals: 7 healthy adult Beagles. Procedures: Dogs walked and trotted on an instrumented treadmill to determine control values for peak and mean vertical force as well as vertical impulse for all 4 limbs. A small sphere was attached to the ventral pad of the right forelimb paw to induce a reversible lameness, and recordings were repeated for both gaits. Additionally, footfall patterns were assessed to test for changes in temporal gait variables. Results: During walking and trotting, peak and mean vertical force as well as vertical impulse were decreased in the ipsilateral forelimb, increased in the contralateral hind limb, and remained unchanged in the ipsilateral hind limb after lameness was induced. All 3 variables were increased in the contralateral forelimb during trotting, whereas only mean vertical force and vertical impulse were increased during walking. Stance phase duration increased in the contralateral forelimb and hind limb during walking but not during trotting. Conclusions and clinical relevance: Analysis of the results suggested that compensatory load redistribution mechanisms in dogs depend on the gait. All 4 limbs should be evaluated in basic research and clinical studies to determine the effects of lameness on the entire body. Further studies are necessary to elucidate specific mechanisms for unloading of the affected limb and to determine the long-term effects of load changes in animals with chronic lameness arabic 10 English 72

Antimicrobial Sensitivity Patterns of Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates Obtained From Foot Ulcer Diabetes Patients in Tripoli, Libya.

Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the most invasive organism that causes severe tissue damage in diabetic foot ulcers. A major problem in P. aeruginosa infection because of that it is commonly exhibits a high degree of resistance to antimicrobial agents .To improve appropriate antimicrobial therapy and reduce the incidence of antibiotics resistant bacteria, information on the antibiotic susceptibility to this bacterium is urgently needed. Therefore, the aim of this study was to isolate and determinate the antimicrobial susceptibility of the P. aeruginosa in diabetic foot ulcers patients. Methods: This study was carried out over the period between June 2014 to April 2015 at Tripoli Medical Center. A total of 120 bacterial isolates were cultured onto bacteriological media such as nutrient agar, MacConkey agar and blood agar. Identification of retrieved bacterial isolates was done using standard diagnostic microbiological laboratory methods and antibiogram was determined by VITEK ® 2 compact automated system. Results: Twenty one strains of P. aeruginosa from 120 diabetic foot ulcers were detected. P. aeruginosa isolates exhibited multidrug resistance to Ampicillin, Augmenting, Cefuroxime, Cefoxitin, Cefazolin, Ceftriaxone, Trimethoprim/sulfamethzole, Piperacillin. However, all isolates of P. aeruginosa were 100 % sensitive to Imipenem. Conclusion: P. aeruginosa infections of diabetic foot ulcers patients have multi-drug resistant. Imipenem is the empirical antibiotic of the choice. Key words: Pseudomonas aeruginosa, diabetic foot ulcer, antibiotics resistance arabic 17 English 114
