Isolation, Diagnosis and Cultivation of Trichomonas gallinae from Domestic Pigeon in Kirkuk City, Iraq

Abstract: Article InfoThis research was conducted to study the spread of an important unicellular protozoan Trichomonas gallinae isolated from the mouth and esophagus of three groups of domestic pigeon Colomba livia domestica by wet mount preparation. A total of 609 domestic pigeons were tested in Kirkuk city, Iraq from August 2015 to April 2016, the total infectious rate of the prevalence were 49.26%, distributed to 64.92%, 50.98% and 30.41% in Alzajel, pakistani and zubaeri pigeon respectively. The present study compa… Show more

“…Several other workers also used Giemsa stained method for identification of parasite ( [24,10,25,6]). Prevalence of T. gallinae from domestic pigeon was recorded in Kirkuk City, Iraq and recorded 49.26% prevalence based on wet mount preparation, different staining techniques (Giemsa, Gram stain and Fields stain) and four culture methods with Giemsa staining and In-pouch media being more efficient than wet mount preparation ( [15]) similar to our reports.…”

“…Medium 199, a general media for maintenance of eukaryotic cells, supplemented with rice starch and inactivated fetal bovine serum was a standard media for isolation of Trichomonas gallinae ([14]). The isolation, diagnosis and cultivation of T. gallinae from domestic Pigeon was studied and the parasites were confirmed by wet mount preparation, different staining techniques like Giemsa, Gram stain and Fields staining method and by culture method ( [15]). Parasites were cultivated by In-tube and In-pouch culture systems using modified Diamond media (TYM), Cysteine Peptone Maltose media (CPLM) and Trichomonas CM0161 media (CM 161).…”

“…Positive samples will display high numbers of highly motile protozoa, which can be easily identified. Other possibilities like polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing, staining or cultures are possible; however, those are not practical in a clinical situation (Hamad and Hassan 2017).…”

“…White City, Oregon, 97503, USA), was used to screen for trichomonads, as previously used to culture T. gallinae from Columbiformes. 20,34 A crop swab was placed in the top chamber of the pouch and viewed immediately under a light microscope (x100 and x400). The doublechambered pouch was then mixed to allow the sample to disperse into the lower chamber and incubated at 37°C.…”
