Abstract

Background: Benzimidazole (BZ) resistance is an increasingly serious problem due to the excessive use of this anthelmintic for controlling Haemonchus contortus, which is one of the major gastrointestinal nematodes infecting small ruminants worldwide. Three known single nucleotide polymorphisms...

Abstract

The protein encoding zone of Mitochondrial DNA region (inherited from single lineage) seems most suitable and effective for taxonomic, systematic, ecological, evolutionary, DNA barcoding, cryptic species and population studies, exploiting nucleotide/amino acid datasets (1D/2D/3D conformational...

Abstract

Hypothesis: Parasite infection of juvenile stickleback increases during their early ontogenesis owing to transmission from adults and other juveniles, as well as changes in diet. Organisms: Threespine stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus) aged one week to two months, their ecto- and endoparasites,...

Abstract

Fasciolosis is a zoonotic disease that infects especially ruminants and the liver damages in chronic infection caused by the parasite are very severe. The aim of this study was to evaluate the histopathological findings in liver of cattle naturally infected with Fasciola hepatica, as well as...

Abstract

Trichuris serrata, a whipworm of cats, can cause inflammation in the cecum and upper portion of the large intestine. It is unknown if the virulence and pathology of T. serrata differ from Trichuris campanula, the other species in cats. Distinguishing the species based on egg size is challenging. In ...

Abstract

The interaction between blood-borne pathogens and fibrinolysis is one of the most important mechanisms that mediate invasion and the establishment of infectious agents in their hosts. However, overproduction of plasmin (final product of the route) has been related in other contexts to proliferation ...

Abstract

Infectious pathogens from wild animals have become increasingly important throughout the world in recent years, as they have had a substantial impact in livestock and human health. A large number of pathogens (61% of the 1415 currently identified human pathogens within 313 different genera) are...

Abstract

Libyostrongylus sp. are nematodes that infect ostriches. Libyostrongylus douglassii was first described in ostriches from several countries in the world. Later Libyostrongylus dentatus was morphologically identified in ostriches in the USA and Brazil, and mixed infection is common in the latter...

Abstract

Most of the current research on parasitic infections that affect humans and domestic animals has been focused on vaccines, diagnostic methods, epidemiology, new drug design, and recently, with the advancement of genomics and proteomics, on the evolutionary origins of parasites. However, the basic...
