Study of the Effect of Klebsiella pneumoniae Antigens on the Histological Structure of the Kidney in Laboratory Rabbits Infected with Entamoeba histolytica


This study was conducted to investigate the immunological effect of Capsular (K-Antigen), extracted from Klebsiella pneumoniae, on the histological structure of the kidney in the adult white rabbits that were experimentally infected with Entamoeba histolytica. Twenty Male adult white rabbits, were divided into four groups, five animals for each group. The control group was injected with a physiological saline solution, the second group was injected with E.hisotlytica, the third group was injected with K-Antigen extract, the fourth group was injected with K-Antigen extract, E.histolytica parasites. The results of the histological examination showed many differences in the histological sections examined for the treated groups.
