AbstractObjective of this survey was study on activity and serum levels of hepatic enzymes including: aspartate amino transferase (AST), alanine amino transferase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and Iron in infected cattle with Theileria in Golestan province. A total of 120 blood samples (60 infected and 60 non-infected cattle to Theileria annulata) were collected from different cities of Golestan province (including: Gorgan, Gonbade Kavoos, Agh Ghala, Gomishan, Bandare Torkaman & Azad Shahr) and were studied for protozoa after staining. Also rate of hepatic enzymes and iron were estimated with commercial kits and results were compared with statistical analysis.Results showed that levels of some of hepatic enzymes including: aspartate amino transferase (AST), alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and Iron in infected cattle were more than control group, significantly. But, there was no significant difference in level of alanine amino transferase (ALT) in infected and non-infected animals. Our findings showed that hepatic lesions and anemia have important roles in pathogenesis of theileriosis.
