Studying Some of Immunological Parameters of doges that Toxocara Infections in Saladinprovince
Keywords:Complement 3, Complement 4, Immunoglobulin G, Immunoglobulin M, Toxocara Cainis.
The study examined 60 stray dogs from both sexes and aged 3 months - 3 years old, included 30 stray dogs
and 30 dogs clinically normal, served as a control group. Toxocara infection has detected in the College of
veterinary medicine Health Center in Tikrit city. Clinical signs were observed, the study groups divided to
two groups one of these groups infected by the parasites of the study and other group was control the result
appear immunological changes for protein levels in study groups, represented with significant differences
was reported between toxocariasis group and healthy control in terms of Complement 3 proteins (33.21
±14.18726, 35.57±15.56254), Complement 4 proteins (268.5±14.34, 146.06±17.83) although increased
complement 3 level in toxocariasis group compared with healthy control, While the Complement 4
reported no significant differences increased between toxocariasis group and healthy control group. The
immunoglobulins was reported highly significant differences in IgM (297.4±14.18726)in toxocariasis group
compared with healthy control group (159 ±15.56), While revealed no significant decrease levels of IgG of
toxocariasis group (760 ±14.34) compared with healthy control group (843±17.83). ToxocaraCanis induces
an early immunological response that detected by presence of these antibodies and immunological markers
against T.canis infection.
