Abstract: A new azitromicin-based type of macrolide antibiotics was developed by Nita-Pharm company, Saratov. This article provides the research results of Azithronit subacute toxicity in dosage of 100mg of azithromycin dihydrate per 1 ml drug. Azithronit subacute toxicity was determined by rats’ intramuscular injection. The rats from the experimental groups showed less food and water consumption at 5 days, thus statistically changing live weight, reliably confirmed by the 7th day comparing to the control group. The experiment results showed the influence of Azithronit drug on the rat organism. The results from subacute toxication study showed that doses of 930 and 465 mg/kg are toxic, 186 mg/kg maximum tolerance dosage.

Abstract: The aim of this research was a comparative study of bovine infectious rhinotrachetis (BIR) virus morphology using electronic and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The virus electronic microscopy preceded by enhancement with heavy metals showed that the BIR viral capsid is made up from host cell nuclear membrane. The virus is of a large spherical form with external protein and lipid capsid and superficial knobs. The virus has a complicated structure containing more than 20 structural proteins. Therefore, only the virus topographical data, size, number of nucleocapsids were possible to indicate. Atomic force microscopy allows investigation of viral particles without its additional enhancement with heavy metal atoms, evaluation of viral concentration, and study of viral particles morphology. At a low viral concentration the virions form a single layer on a template surface, while at a higher viral concentration the particles form clusters. The study of virion particles showed that their surface is uneven and plicate. Imaging of the samples with lower and higher concentration at contact mode allowed obtaining virion 2D and 3D topography images. The evaluation of particle surfaces showed that the BIR virus size is 98.0 nanometers. The IBR virus three-dimensional AFM with 0.76 ? 0.76 ?m2 imaging region clearly visualized cavities and knobs of various size that characterizes the virus morphology.

Abstract: Keeping reindeer breeding as an ethnos-forming and profitable agribusiness is essential for the Arctic regions of Russia. A brucellosis natural focus among wild deer populations is a constant danger of brucellosis agent introduction into the infection-free herds, its spread among susceptible livestock and a threat to human health. Specificity of reindeer nomadic breeding and availability of many objective factors do not allow having diagnostic tests with full coverage of livestock herds that complicates control of brucellosis epizootic situation, meat and endocrine products quality. The article shows using technological processes in reindeer breeding to improve veterinary measures efficiency in the areas of brucellosis natural foci. Also, data of brucellosis pathogen persistence in reindeer antlers is provided. The study showed the possibility of brucellosis in-vivo bacteriological detection using antlers as a biomaterial. Of adult animals of all the sex and age groups from 4% to 22% cases of Brucella carriers with latent infection were registered within the infection natural foci. The infection rate among male-reproducers was significantly higher than that of the female reindeers for 1.3 times and was slightly higher than among the males-castrate. Of 36 brucellosis-carriers registered in 2 herds, only 14 reindeers (38.8%) had brucella specific immunoglobulins in diagnostic titers. The study of reindeer antlers as a biomaterial additionally revealed 8.7% brucella-carrying animals with chronic and latent forms of infection, which improved diagnostic tests and endocrine products quality control.

Abstract: Development of methods detecting pathogen specific antigens is one of the promising directions in improving laboratory diagnostics of contagious diseases including brucellosis. This article presents the results of designing and trial of a red cell-linked-antigen test to identify brucellosis agent in various pathological material.
Our research resulted in developing original method of brucellosis antibody detection for indirect hemagglutination test by sensitization of sheep erythrocytes stabilized according to Weinbach with hyperimmune Brucella serum used as an amidol conjugate to detect Brucella antigen in biomaterial.
Also, we determined optimal parameters for erythrocytes sensitization using hyperimmune serum to provide highly active and specific antibody diagnosticum for indirect hemagglutination test.
The comparative trials showed that the antibody diagnosticum is more sensitive for 22 times. Also, indirect hemagglutination test based on antibody diagnosticum is more user-friendly while conventional antibody neutralization test is more complex with three-component reaction. Our studies of antibody diagnosticum efficacy showed a higher sensitivity of indirect hemagglutination test based on antibody diagnosticum in comparison with antibody neutralization test and bacteriological test, and suitability of using the diagnosticum for Brucella antigen indication in biomaterial, and also, the proposed test meets the requirements of rapid methods for antigen identification.
The diagnosticum production method is patented (No. 249387) September 27, 2013.

Abstract: An open mechanical damage of soft tissues is quite common in animals. Wounds etiology varies. During our three-year survey, cases of animal non-contagious diseases were registered in 430 dogs, including 178 dogs with surgical pathology. This kind of pathology occurred as a result of dogs bad care and housing. There are many ways and methods of wounds treatment but none of them completely meets surgeon needs. Naturally, the flow of new proposals does not decrease and the issues of wounds and wound infections treatment in human and animals still remains a challenge for physicians and scientists. It is necessary to apply the methods of complex therapy that is able to influence on microbial factors, increase drugs efficiency, enhance protective and adaptive strength of sick animal organism, and reduce the period of wounds healing in animals. The associated or complex therapy was found to accelerate organism recovery, wound detersion from the dead substrate and formation of tissue granulation with further epithelialization and cicatrization. In dogs from the 1st experimental group wounds complete clinical healing occurred at 20 days, in the second experimental group - at 22 days, while the control group at 28 days after their treatment began; normalization of hematologic, biochemical and immunologic parameters in the experimental groups was registered at 10 days, while in animals from the control group it was registered at 15 days or more.

Abstract: The article provides results of pharmacological and toxicological evaluation of spirit tinctures from yarrow and succory, their therapeutic and prevention efficacy. The tinctures application for stomach diseases prevention and treatment showed a favorable effect on blood parameters. Inducing of erythropoiesis and hemopoiesis processes was the most characteristic feature. Some series of experiments showed an increased number of total protein and ?-globulin fractions in blood serum, and also strengthening of microbe cells phagocytosis by neutrophils and an increased number of leukocytes. Clinical trials confirmed the drug efficiency in treatment of young livestock gastrointestinal diseases. According to the above mentioned parameters the drug prevention and treatment efficiency made 84-91%. Therefore using these medical herbs spirit tinctures containing tannins in combination with antimicrobic drugs proved its usefulness at calves dyspepsia. Application of this drug prevents or rapidly terminates the disease further progression, improves animal general condition, increases their appetite, normalizes functioning of digestive system. A proper choice of antimicrobic drugs has a considerable influence on tinctures efficacy. Using a tincture only has a therapeutic action; however, it is less than using the both tinctures together. Therefore the tinctures can be recommended at stomach diseases with mild development. The drugs industrial production is arranged in a laboratory of Krasnodar Research Veterinary Institute and regional laboratories in Rostov region. The drug production is neither labor-consuming nor costly. The drug is widely used in livestock farms of Krasnodar and Rostov regions. The medical herbs tinctures are economically reasonable.

Abstract: Human and animal body contains different micro- and - and vitamins. The latter refers to organic compounds that enforce the vital functions of living organisms, regulating metabolism process. Vitamins are a part of enzymes, accelerating and guiding chemical processes taking part in animal organism. To monitor if an animal is supplied with necessary vitamins the timely hypovitaminosis detection supposes not only diet evaluation for vitamins but also tests of animal blood, colostrum, milk, liver and other tissues for vitamin content. The vitamin content in biological substrates is often determined using colorimetric, spectrophotometric, spectrofluorimetric and gas chromatographic methods. The requirements for methods of vitamins routine monitoring are strict enough.  They should be simple, reliable, to provide high sensitivity and selectivity. The tool selection to determine water-and fat-soluble vitamins in food is specified by a number of general considerations, such as method detection limits depending on sample concentration, permissible error, time limits and cost of analysis. Naturally, more rapid, user-friendly, and informative analysis are preferred. The high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) meets most of the requirements. Modern development of the HPLC method expanded its analytical capabilities to evaluate vitamins content in enriched foods. Necessary sample preparation is simplier than that of other methods that is primarily associated with the analysis exceptional flexibility, high separation efficiency, and favorable conditions. The paper describes the technique to determine vitamin A in rabbit blood and liver using HPLC analysis. To provide optimal parameters we modified the technique introduced by Hosotani, Kitagawa (2003) and selected proper conditions for chromatographic analysis.

Abstract: The paper presents results from evaluation study of drugs used to treat newborn calves from diseases proceeding with clinical signs of diarrhea. Blood serum analyses showed that all the newborn calves from all the groups had a reduced colostrums immunity. Although, calves from the experimental group which were exposed to preventive and therapeutic measures had higher immunoglobulin number than control and infected animals its level remained below the physiological norm (15g/l) that is apparently connected with newborns unduly housing and feeding conditions (animals untimely feeding with colostrum and housing insanitary conditions). The proposed drug was determined to be effective to prevent and treat newborn calves dyspepsia. Using the drug as a preventive means slightly increased magnesium, copper, zinc, iron and calcium level, while lower levels of sodium and potassium reached the limits of physiological norm. Comparing to the controls animals from the experimental group showed more rapid recovery and less cases of animal death; the evaluated drug has higher preventive efficiency than the analogue. By the end of experiment the bactericidal activity of blood serum from the experimental calves increased for 11.7%, lysozyme and ?-lysine activity for 1.6 and 4.6 % than basic parameters accordingly. All this data testifies the activation of exchange processes in animal organism. The proposed drug is tolerable and in recommended doses is nontoxical.

Abstract: The article provides the results of hematologic and biochemical blood tests of cows with combined course of subclinical mastitis and acute postnatal endometritis. It was established that hematologic, biochemical and immunological blood parameters in cows having both subclinical mastitis and endometritis deviated from the physiological standard, and the animals had lower immune responses. The cows with acute postnatal mastitis had lower number of erythrocytes than the cows having subclinical mastitis. Animals with the combined pathology had an increased number of leukocytes,eosinophils and monocytes, while the number of stab cells and lymphocytes decreased. During the study of protein metabolism showed lower level of total protein in blood serum and albumines in protein fractions. At the same time the number of ?-and ?-globulins increased. An increased level of the latter parameters indicates an inflammatory process. Also, the studies showed an increased activity of AP and ALT plasma enzymes, AspAT of mitochondrial enzyme in blood serum. These deviations indicate essential organic changes in liver cellular function and indirectly point on organism developing D hypoavitaminosis. Also, cows had lower cholesterol and increased level of glucose that evidences a reduced level of carbohydrate metabolism and bioenergetic processes accordingly. Also we observed decrease of phosphorus and calcium increased by 1.5 times that was a consequence of their lack in fodder for a long time, bad calcium intake because of lack of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone.

Abstract: We studied the efficacy of anthelminthic «Gelmintal S» and «Gelmintal K» drugs on spontaneously infected dogs and cats with intestinal helminthosis. This study confirms the theoretical aspects in carnivores parasitic diseases treatment by transdermal administration of the drugs based on moxidectin and praziquantel. An active carrier of active substances through the skin was dimethylsulfoxide, which has a high penetration property through biological membranes and quickly gets into the blood system. The «Gelmintal S» and «Gelmintal K» drugs were used dropwise («spot-on») onto dry intact skin at a dose of 0.1 ml/kg animal weight i.e. for cats 4 mg/kg praziquantel and 1 mg/kg moxidectin; for dogs - 4 mg/kg praziquantel and 2.5 mg/kg moxidectin.  The «Gelmintal S» and «Gelmintal K» drugs refer to combined drugs for veterinary use. The combination of moxidectin and praziquantel included into the formulations provides broad-spectrum antiparasitic action against nematodes and cestodes. According to level of effect on organism at cutaneous application,  the studied drugs refer to the substances of  little danger(hazard class 4), have mild cumulative properties; in recommended doses causes no local irritation, embryotoxic, teratogenic and mutagenic effects.
All the animals that participated in this study were free of intestinal worms, that were confirmed by two negative results of helminthological research. During the dogs and cats survey no side effects or complications were registered after using drugs.

Abstract: The current development of pig production is based on using scientific and technical achievements and highly productive animals in this field, accompanied by the impact of both abiotic and biotic environmental factors on organism physiological state during the various periods of postnatal ontogenesis. Under these circumstances a successful realization of the genetic potential of swine resistance and productivity remains a very important issue.
Therefore, development, trial, and scientific justification of using domestic biogenic compounds of a new generation having high prophylactic and therapeutic efficiency, and environmental harmlessness to human body is a current problem of modern biology and biotechnology. The goalof theresearch was to determine microclimate parameters in sow house, fattening house and evaluate hog meat quality at associated application of «Combiolax» and «Selenopyran» (Prisurya), «Trepel» (Alatyr, Secure of Chuvashia) biopreparations regarding biogeochemical characteristics peculiar to a region. We had two series of scientific and economic experiments and laboratory experiments using 40 physiologically mature 2-days old pigs selected according to the principle of analogues with regard to clinical and physiological state, age, sex, breed, body weight with 10 animals in each of the four groups (control and experiment). Physiological maturity was determined by their body weight, appearance, body type, body condition, skin condition, color of visible mucous membranes, the number of deciduous teeth, and reaction to external stimuli, behavior, time of standing on feet after birth, appearance of suckling and defensive reflexes. In pig houses the microclimate was determined according to generally accepted methods of animal hygiene. During the experiment the decapitated piglets (60-, 210-, 300 days of age) were studied for organoleptic, biochemical and spectroscopic parameters using conventional veterinary methods. The both series of experiments showed that microclimate parameters generally met zoohygienic norms. In both experimental and intact animals meat organoleptic, biochemical and physical and chemical parameters were almost identical, indicating the environmental safety of the investigated additives and indifference of meat carcasses to them.

Abstract: The article provides the results of comparative studies of the following fodder additives efficacy: sodium succinate, calcium fumarate both in dosage of 25 mg/kg live mass, “Extrafit” and “Vita-force” drugs introduced in 2% diet ratio.  The preparations efficacy was evaluated according to chicken growth and weight values and blood serum biochemical parameters. During the studies all the preparations showed their promoting effect, however, the most efficient were sodium succinate and “Extrafit” drug. Their additional introduction into animals ration provided better numbers of absolute values in weight gain (higher for 18.3 and 15.6% than controls accordingly), daily weight gain (for 21.0 è 18.0%), feed-gain relationship (for 15.7 and 13.9% fodder per 1 kg of weight gain less than controls), chicken livability (for 4.3 è 7.6% accordingly). The chickens from this group showed higher level of total protein for 11.0 and 14.6% and ?-globulins for 12.9 and 13.4% than controls accordingly.

Abstract: Polymorphic variants of ryanodine receptor (RYR1), estrogen receptor (ESR), alpha-1-fucosyltransferase (ECRF18 / FUC1) genes and their complex combinations were studied in 113 sows of large white breed using PCR-RFLP (polymerase chain reaction - Restriction Fragment Length Position) analysis. The research revealed association variants of the studied genes with piglet reproductive capacity and livability.
On ESR gene-marker 81 sows (71.6%) belonged to WW genotype, 29 sows (25.6%) had MW genotype and 3 sows (2.6) had MM genotype; on RYR 1 gene marker 100% sows belonged to NN genotype; on ECR F18 5 sows (4.4) had AG genotype, 108 sows (95.5) had GG. The highest fertility on estrogen receptor gene was observed in animals with WW genotype (13.9 piglets). According to the number of live-born piglets the sows with this genotype also had an advantage over peers carrying MW and MM genotypes, this difference made 1.3 and 1.7 pig accordingly. However, on piglets livability by the weaning period the sows with MM and MW genotypes (93.3 and 91.5%) had the best parameters.
On ryanodine receptor gene all the sows had preferable NN genotype.
On alpha-1-fucosyltransferase gene the animals with preferable AG genotype (13.5) were the most productive. According to the number of live-born piglets no significant difference between the genotypes was registered. Also, the analysis revealed a significant variation between AG and GG genotypes on piglet livability, which made up to 11.9% in favor of the first genotype.
Considering the effect of genotypes complex associations on sows reproductive quality the best performance parameters were registered in sows with combinations of NN/MW/AG and NN/WW/AG genotypes, which made up to 14.3 and 13.5 herds. However, on  piglet livability by the weaning period these sows gave way to the species with a complex combination of NN / MM / GG genotypes by 2% than the first group and by 4.6% than the second group of animals accordingly.
Therefore, molecular genetic analysis of large white breed sows revealed that the both ESR and RYR1 genes frequently occur with preferable ESRWW and RYR1NN genotypes, indicating sows good multiple pregnancy, and high resistance to stress. However, because of polygenic formation of specific useful feature, the breeding and selection work should include the sows with the best complex genotypes, such as RYR1NN/ESRMM/FUT1GG, RYR1NN/ESRMW/FUT1AG, RYR1NN/ESRWW/FUT1AG.

Abstract: The article describes a favorable effect of two feed additives: LipoKar and Kuksavit that contain beta-carotene. The difference of the first additive from the second one is that the active ingredient is encapsulated into liposome membrane. During 30 days the experimental pigs of fattening stage increased their average daily live weight gain by 166.9 and 133.8%, which in absolute numbers was for 8.7 and 4.4 kg higher than in the control animals. Piglet livability increased under the influence of the feed additives. In the experimental groups this parameter reached 94.9 and 93.8%, which is higher than that of the controls by 9.5 and 8.4%. Results indicate a significant increase of feed conversion after introduction of the studied feed additives 14.9 and 8.1%, accordingly. Blood biochemical analyses showed a significant intensification of animal metabolism in the experimental groups: total protein, vitamin A, ALT and AST enzymes values increased. Using beta-carotene sources in pig diet promoted animal production and LipoKarom additive had better results than Kuksavit. As for practical significance, the study results will help correct diet norms of the feed additives to improve swine production parameters.

Abstract: The paper practical and theoretical significance is that it provides first detailed cytomorphometric characteristics of goat mammary gland epithelial cells regarding the animals physiological state.
The results of histological, cytomorphometric and statistical analysis of the obtained data showed that the goat mammary gland alveoli are lined with flat, cubic and cylindrical cells. The difference of lactocyte types depends on glands physiological state, level of alveoli fillness with secret. Non-pregnant and non-lactating goats have a prevailing number of cubic cells (55%), pregnant lactating – cylindrical (42%), pregnant non-lactating – cubic (46.7%), non-pregnant lactating goats – cylindrical (38.3%).
In non-pregnant non-lactating goats the area of flat lactocytes is 18.0±0.32 µm2 and nuclei – 4.6±0.18 µm2, cytoplasm-nuclear relation (CNR) is 2.9±0.04:1. Cubic epithelium (4,6±0.52 µm2) is closely attached to each other, has nuclei average area of 1.6±0.23 µm2 and CNR 2.3±0.02:1. Cells of cylindrical form are extremely rare, nuclei size is 5.2±0.09 µm2, the entire cell is 13.6±0.27 µm2, CNR – 1.7±0.02:1.
Pregnant lactating goats have alveoli also lined with all kinds of cells. However, their morphometric parameters vary compared with non-pregnant non-lactating animals. So, the area of flat lactation and their nuclei decreases respectively to 4.6 and 19.2%, and CNR is higher for 12%; cubic for 10.4 and 19.5%, cylindrical increased for 7.4% and 2%, CNR remains unchanged. In pregnant non-lactating goat the flat cells parameters is lower for 1.6-2.9 times than in pregnant lactating goats. Parameters of cubic cells decrease by 1.1-3.4 times. Parameters of cylindrical lactacytes and their nuclei decreases by1.9-8.5 times in average. During the lactation period the cells size is larger for 1.1-4.2 times than in pregnant non-lactating goats. The nuclei inner and outer diameters significantly increase for 1.2-2.4 times, and nuclei area for 2.4-8.5 times. CNR reduced from 3.4±0.07 in the flat lactocytes to 2.4±0.08 in cylindrical epithelium.
