Diphenoxylate plus Atropine There are little efficacy data supporting the use of diphenoxylate plus atropine compared with loperamide for the treatment of CID8; however, one double-blind study comparing these agents suggests that loperamide is the more effective agent. In addition, within the hour study period, fewer tablets of loperamide were required versus in the diphenoxylate plus atropine group 4.
Domesticated host, Experimental settings, Wild host Pigs: All Stages Top of page The most important hosts of the African trypanosomes are domestic livestock including cattle and small ruminants.
Camels can be affected by T. Many wildlife species also carry trypanosomes and play important roles as reservoirs of infection for domestic livestock see Anderson et al.
Birds and reptiles, despite being fed on by the vectors, do not appear to be susceptible to infection. Trypanosomes of Australian mammals have been reviewed by Thompson et al.
Trypanosomes of fish are split into two types; these are designated Type A and Type B and are transmitted by leeches Overath et al. Most wild animals and some domestic animals are trypanotolerant because they are able to remain clinically normal with trypanosome infections for long periods.
These animals can tolerate challenge from the tsetse flies. The trypanosome tolerance of cattle is discussed by Naessens The trypanotolerance of small ruminants has been reviewed by Geerts et al.
Kirdi ponies show some degree of trypanotolerance Itard, The trait of trypanotolerance is attributed to mechanisms that relate to genetic, immunological, cellular, physiopathological and ecological factors Itard, Trypanotolerant breeds develop premunition when they are in constant contact with infected tsetse flies and have the ability to stimulate more rapid and stronger immune responses than susceptible breeds Authie et al.
The premunition to infection may be lost when the animals are exposed to new trypanosome species and strains Williams et al.
Also, their ability to control anaemia and parasitaemia in trypanosome infection was attributable to their greater efficiency in increasing progenitors from the erythroid and myeloid lineages in the bone marrow compared to the susceptible Boran cattle Andrianarivo et al.
Trypanotolerance has been associated with significantly higher erythrocyte levels of zinc and manganese in Keteku cattle, compared to White Fulani cattle Awolaja et al. The high ability of the African buffalo to control trypanosome infections is due to the presence of a trypanocidal factor in the blood Reduth et al.
This has been identified as xanthine oxidase, which inhibits trypanosome glycolysis Muranjan et al. Differences in trypanosusceptibility Masai Zebu and Orma Boran cattle are less susceptible than Galana Boran cattle to trypanosome infection Mwangi et al.
Zebu cattle are more resistant to anaemia caused by trypanosome infection, than Holstein cattle Doko et al. Scottish Blackface lambs develop a more severe disease than Finn Dorset lambs when, infected with T.
Age of animal Calves that are less than a year old are more resistant than adults to the effects of trypanosomiasis Fiennes, ; Maxie and Valli, ; Wellde et al.Diarrhea is a common side effect of chemotherapy, especially for patients with advanced cancer.
The incidence of chemotherapy-induced diarrhea (CID) has been reported as % of treated patients. Chemotherapy-induced diarrhea results from mechanical and biochemical disturbances from effects of chemotherapy on the bowel mucosa.
Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea By Gina B.
Franklin, RN MSN, Senior Director, Clinical Programs. What is Chemotherapy-Induced Diarrhea (CID)? Diarrhea is an increase in the frequency, urgency and/or volume of feces and can be a side effect in dogs being treated for cancer with certain chemotherapies.

VV is funded for children born on or after 1 April HPV is funded for individuals aged 26 years and under: 2 doses for those aged 14 years and under; 3 doses for those aged 15–26 years; 3 doses for those aged 9–26 years with certain medical conditions, plus an additional dose post-chemotherapy.
Diarrhea is the passage of frequent stool, unformed or liquid in consistency, through either the body's natural (anus) or diverted (ostomy) opening. Diarrhea is a symptom, rather than a disease, often produced or induced in response to another condition or treatment (i.e.
cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation).
