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

Epidemiological dynamics are shaped by and may in turn shape host demography. These feedbacks can result in hard to predict patterns of disease incidence. Mathematical models that integrate infection and demography are consequently a key tool for informing expectations for disease burden and...

Abstract

The objective of this review is to generate a synthesis of research conducted on predation of bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis) and to suggest directions for future research relative to current knowledge gaps and a novel hypothesis. This review is primarily based on literature from the last 60 years...

Abstract

Historically, rodents-ectoparasites are responsible for many diseases in human and domestic animal communities because they are well-adapted to the environment and nutritional resources. In addition, ectoparasites can affect the reproductive rates, ecological fitness and the dispersal pattern of...

Abstract

Toll-like receptors initiate inflammatory responses following the recognition of a wide repertoire of pathogens including bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses. They are composed of an extracellular leucine-rich repeat domain responsible for detecting pathogen-associated molecular patterns, a...

Abstract

Infected hosts may preserve fitness by resisting parasites (reducing parasite burden) and/or tolerating them (preventing or repairing infection-induced damage). Theory predicts that these individual-level defense strategies generate divergent population-level feedbacks that would maintain genetic...

Abstract

To investigate the genetic variability and population structure of Echinococcus granulosus complex, 79 isolates were sequenced from different host species covering human, dog, camel, goat, sheep and cattle as of various geographical sub-populations of Iran (Northwestern, Northern, and...

Abstract

This study focused on the structural characteristics of Chinese ovine Babesia trap gene via sequencing the full-length sequence and bioinformatics analysis. And then a phylogenetic analysis was performed on the TRAP nucleotide and amino acid sequences, which provided the data for clarifying the...

Abstract

Faecal helminth egg counts can provide evidence of the presence of helminth parasites, but do not necessarily reflect helminth disease. Over-reliance of nematode faecal egg counts may be unhelpful in deciding on the need to treat sheep with an anthelmintic drug and hinders the long-term goal of...

Abstract

Modern livestock breeding practices provide new opportunities for producing animals that are adapted to their production environment and are free of disease. Using current knowledge of biology and by seeking 'the desired outcome' animal selection strategies can be designed that deliver more...
