Although production of IgY by hyper-immunizing laying bird and harvesting from eggs is an easy process there are few issues: (a) administering intravenous is not without problem due to immunological response and (b) when given orally these are very sensitive to proteolytic enzymes. There are reports to suggest that major part of IgY is destroyed in intestine. Prof. (Dr) Abdul Samad Ph.D. (OVC, ...

Fully appreciate Dr. Nair's description of 'Breast Abscess' in Ayurveda', obviously for human. Can this knowledge be applied directly to ruminant animals without considering anatomical differences? Ayurveda is a distinct science by itself which, if I am not wrong does not recognize the allopathy approach to disease causation, pathogenesis and way to treat. Herbal is merely using plant source crude ...

Well, science does not work on the principle, 'believe or leave'. When you are discussing a disease (mastitis) defined as per modern science norms the treatment must also satisfy the modern criteria. We study allopathy for several years with no training on other alternative systems and quote those authoritatively. When you administer a drug whether it is absorbed in the body or destroyed in GI tra ...

Mohamed Fawzy Elsawy - Sub-clinical mastitis is to be diagnosed based on somatic cell count and not bacterial culture. CMT is one of several tests that indirectly indicates somatic cell count. We have done screening of thousands of milk samples from field and sub-clinical mastitis based on high SCC score is a reality. But if SCC is normal and milk yield has gone down then one should start looki ...

I am yet to get a response on evidence that when applied externally to udder the active ingredient is reaching the infection site. Anecdotal evidence is a good point to start but not sufficient to prove scientifically. Clinical trials must be placebo-control and double blind, else for a disease like mastitis which is multi-factorial merely proving that SCC count decreased is not sufficient. Does h ...

Regarding herbal formulation for mastitis, one can explain rational when the formulation is injected intra-mammary. But the claim that application of herb will treat mastitis is far-fetched and need to be proved by demonstrating that the active agent has crossed skin barrier which is highly unlikely. Researchers have been struggling to deliver drug through human skin and the success of delivery is ...

We have recently developed dry cow formulation which acts as a sealant and is very effective without any antibacterial agent. The formulation is biodegradable. The seal has been found to prevent entry of any bacteria from the floor environment.Another formulation which we have recently developed and now available in the market is a barrier-type teat dip. The principle here is that in India cows an ...

As a routine practice nobody will heat colostrum at 60 0C for 60 minutes as then it will coagulate. In India a coagulated colostrum cake is sold in the market and it is believed that the product might be nutritious but devoid of immunological properties unique to colostrum. In fact we are looking for a cost-effective method to dehydrate colostrum. here are conflicting reports in the literature a ...
