Basic scientific achievements

Conducted cytochemical study of the metabolsim of endogenous stages of development of

Coccidia (Eimeria and Sarcocystis) in rodents and farm animals.

Established the prevalence of opportunistically pathogenic intestinal Coccidia (Cryptosporidium) in animals in Azerbaijan.

Studied variability of extensivity and intensity of animals' contamination with Coccidia according to the age of hosts, season and altitudinal zonation.
