Abstract

The recent range expansion of human babesiosis in the northeastern United States, once found only in restricted coastal sites, is not well understood. This study sought to utilize a large number of samples to examine the population structure of the parasites on a fine scale to provide insights into ...

Abstract

Background: Avian malaria parasites (Plasmodium spp.) and related haemosporidians (Haemosporida) are responsible for diseases which can be severe and even lethal in avian hosts. These parasites cause not only blood pathology, but also damage various organs due to extensive exo-erythrocytic...

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 taxonomic richness of lice (Phthiraptera) varies considerably among their avian and mammalian hosts. Previous studies explored some factors shaping louse diversity; however, the so-called Eichler's rule-according to which taxonomic richness of parasites co-varies with that of their hosts - has...

Abstract

Diseases of intensively farmed animals are generally explained by environmental factors, some of them being frequently affected by zootechnical practices or by the development of pathogenic organisms favoured by host animal density. Such is the case of intensive fish farms, in which the density of...

Abstract

Background: The development of pesticide resistance represents a global challenge to food production. Specifically for the Atlantic salmon aquaculture industry, parasitic sea lice and their developing resistance to delousing chemicals is challenging production. In this study, seventeen full sibling ...

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

Background: In December 2007, Babesia bovis was introduced to New Caledonia through the importation of cattle vaccinated with a live tick fever (babesiosis and anaplasmosis) vaccine. Medical measures, acaricide and antiprotozoal treatments, and quarantine restrictions were implemented with success...
