Abstract

Background: Recent reports of transmission interruption of Onchocerca volvulus, the causing agent of river blindness, in former endemic foci in the Americas, and more recently in West and East Africa, raise the question whether elimination of this debilitating disease is underway after long-term...

Abstract

Faecal egg count reduction test was used to evaluate the efficacy of levamisole and ivermectin in the control of bovine parasitic gastroenteritis in a part of Nigeria not previously surveyed. Ninety (90) randomly selected N'dama cattle from two herds in Nsukka, Enugu State of Nigeria, were studied. ...

Abstract

Human onchocerciasis (river blindness), caused by the filarial nematode Onchocerca volvulus, has been successfully controlled by a single drug, ivermectin, for over 25 years. Ivermectin prevents the disease symptoms of severe itching and visual impairment by killing the microfilarial stage, but...

Abstract

Human onchocerciasis, caused by the filarial nematode Onchocerca volvulus, is controlled almost exclusively by the drug ivermectin, which prevents pathology by targeting the microfilariae. However, this reliance on a single control tool has led to interest in vaccination as a potentially...

Abstract

In the Vina du Nord River valley, Cameroon, we studied the effect of 10 annual distributions (1987-98) of ivermectin for control of human onchocerciasis on the reduction of Onchocerca volvulus transmission by Simulium vector flies. Prevalence and infection load in the human population decreased,...

Abstract

An account is given of bovine parasitic otitis due to Rhabditis bovis. The results of questionnaires sent to field veterinarians in Tanzania indicated that the infection is most widespread in the hot humid coastal zone with an average altitude of 500 m, but also occurs up-country. In in vitro ...

Abstract

A single injection of 200 µg/kg was given to 45 zebu × N'dama cows, 6-7 months pregnant, in three villages, while 35 served as controls. The treatment considerably reduced stronyle egg counts for at least 4 months and the number of ticks (Amblyomma and Boophilus) for about a month. Calf birth...

Abstract

Ivermectin treatment of all cattle on a badly infected farm failed to interrupt the transmission of P. bovicola even though oviposition blood spots were drastically reduced in numbers for an entire summer season following treatment. Regular weekly to fortnightly dipping of all cattle in 50 p.p.m....
