The study purpose was to assess the efficacy of four, commonly used biocidal commercial conditionings on fungi and yeasts strains, sampled in eight representative poultry and swine units from Romania. These were testedin the aim of Diffusion Qualitative Method (DQM), biologic material being represented by: Aspergillus Niger, A. flavus, A. fumigatus, Rhodotorula rubra and Candida albicans. Assay revealed that out of four biocide products tested, the cidal activity was ascertained only in a share of 75% (3/4), in the case of one product, at the manufacturer's recommended concentration of 2%, the cidal action being absent to the filamentous strains of fungi.

Pollutants of freshwater sources, through their eco-risk potential can affect the human and animal health, numerous risk-assays being imagined and applied in the last decade. In this respect our aim was to make, an initial acute eco-risk study comparing the zebrafish embryos with an of interest autochthon species, namely pikeperch embryos, to see if this species is suitable and can be introduced as reliable testing tool in temperate region's water eco-pollution studies. The ISO 15088:2007 test method, adapted by our collective to pikeperch embryos stage development was used. Accordingly, 100 zebrafish embryos (Danio rerio) and 20 as control, in parallel with 100 pikeperch embryos (Sander lucioperca) and 20 control were kept in water samples provided from a swine farm surroundings, diluted in ten different concentrations: 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 6X, 8X, 12X, 16X, 24X, 32X. Any behaviour changes and mortality was recorded and statistically analysed according to Kolmogorov-Smirnov normality test, where P value was significant when P < 0.05. Though pikeperch embryo use for testing are not a pattern yet, as zebrafish embryos, results revealed that the indigene species embryos can be successfully used in studies applicable in ecotoxicology or other biomedical domains, with comparable results to the classical one. © 2015 University of Bucharest.

A post-mortem examination of a 5 years old Rottweiler dog was performed in order to Find out the death cause. Macroscopically examination of lungs highlighted on the pulmonary trunk thrombi which were spread from the origin of the trunk to each pulmonary artery. The dissection of the heart has revealed vegetative structure at the level of the valvular endocardium. For histopathological examination samples were taken from a thrombus and from the left valvular endocardium. For microscopic examination the samples were stained by chemical method using hematoxylin-eozine-methylene blue. Based on the chemical staining the histopathological changes and morphopathological aspects the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolism has been established. Source
