Abstract

Faecal egg count reduction tests (FECRT) using ivermectin (IVM) and benzimidazole (BZ) were conducted to investigate the prevalence of anthelmintic resistance in gastro-intestinal nematodes on cattle farms in Germany, Belgium and Sweden in 2006 and 2007. Based on sufficient numbers of eggs prior to ...

Abstract

In an effort to develop non-invasive methods for the diagnosis of Ostertagia ostertagi and Fasciola hepatica infection in beef cattle, this study was undertaken to evaluate antibody-detection ELISAs in meat juice samples and to investigate the associations between test results and carcass...

Abstract

This paper compares 2 methods, the coefficient of variation and the geNorm software programme, for the evaluation of 5 potential reference genes in the cattle parasite Ostertagia ostertagi to be used for quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis. Both methods identified Tubb...

Abstract

Assessing levels of pasture larval contamination is frequently used to study the population dynamics of the free-living stages of parasitic nematodes of livestock. Direct quantification of infective larvae (L3) on herbage is the most applied method to measure pasture larval contamination. However,...

Abstract

The faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) is the recommended method to monitor anthelmintic drug efficacy in cattle. There is a large variation in faecal egg count (FEC) methods applied to determine FECRT. However, it remains unclear whether FEC methods with an equal analytic sensitivity, but...

Abstract

In this survey, the epidemiology of gastrointestinal (GI) nematodes in dairy herds in five northwestern European countries was studied using a standardized Ostertagia ostertagi ELISA applied on bulk-tank milk, and a common questionnaire. The levels of exposure to GI nematodes were high in Belgium,...

Abstract

To determine and compare the prevalence of trypanosome infections in different livestock species (cattle, pigs and goats) in areas where game animals are scarce and livestock constitute the main food source of tsetse, a survey was conducted on the plateau of the Eastern Province of Zambia in Katete ...

Abstract

In this study, packed cell volume-values (PCV) are evaluated as indicator of trypanosomiasis infections in cattle. A total of 734 blood samples were collected in 11 different sampling sites in eastern Zambia: 84 calves (<1 year), 52 young females and 40 young males (between 1 and 3 years), 228 cows, 317 oxen and 13 bulls (>3 years). All samples were subjected to three diagnostic tests: parasitological ...

Abstract

Background: Mucins are large glycoproteins implicated in protection of all mucosal surfaces. In humans and rodents, the mucin gene family has been well described and previous studies have investigated the distribution and function of mucins in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In contrast, little...

Abstract

A cross-sectional survey on bovine fasciolosis was conducted in the Binh Dinh province of Central Vietnam that was previously identified as hyperendemic for human fasciolosis. In Vietnam, both pure Fasciola gigantica and hybrid and/or introgressed populations of liverflukes bearing genetic material ...
