Abstract

In captivity, black rhinoceroses (Diceros bicornis) are beset by many disease syndromes not described in black rhinoceroses in the wild. Hemolytic anemia, hepatopathy, and ulcerative dermatopathy that lead to increased morbidity and mortality characterize these syndromes. It is uncertai...read more

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Antifungals

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

Leptospirosis (ASM)

Leptospirosis is an infection caused by corkscrew-shaped bacteria called Leptospira.Signs and symptoms can range from none to mild such as headaches, muscle pains, and fevers to severe with bleeding from the lungs or meningitis. If the infection causes the person to turn yellow, have kidney failure and bleeding, it is then known as Weil's disease.If it also causes bleeding into the lungs then it is known as severe pulmonary haemorrhage syndrome. Discover the latest research on leptospirosis here.

Anemia

Anemia develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia of inflammation (AI, also called anemia of chronic disease) is a common, typically normocytic, normochromic anemia that is caused by an underlying inflammatory disease. Here is the latest research on anemia.

Hypothalamic Vasculature

The interrelationship of hypothalamic neurons and pituitary cells with the vasculature is important role for regulating the pattern of neurohormone exposure. Discover new insights into hypothalamic vasculature with this feed.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Hemochromatosis

Hemochromatosis is a genetic disorder characterized by excessive intestinal absorption of dietary iron, resulting in a pathological increase in total body iron stores. It leads to massive iron deposits in parenchymal cells of liver, adrenal glands, heart, skin, gonads, joints and pancreas, which disrupts the normal function of these organs. Discover the latest research on hemochromatosis here

Hemolytic-uremic syndrome

Hemolytic-uremic anemia (HUS) is characterized by non-immune hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia as well as organ dysfunction, typically acute renal failure. HUS is often caused by Shiga toxin-producing enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli, while atypical HUS is associated with complement dysregulation. Find the latest research on HUS here.

Congenital Brain Malformations

Congenital brain malformations are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in pediatric patients younger than 2 years. Discover the latest research on congenital brain malformations here.
