Abstract

Onchocerca volvulus is a tissue-dwelling, vector-borne nematode parasite of humans and is the causative agent of onchocerciasis or river blindness. Natural infections of BALB/c mice with Litomosoides sigmodontis and of cattle with Onchocerca ochengi were used as models to study the immune responses ...

Abstract

To aid the development of a macrofilaricidal agent for Onchocerca volvulus, bovine O. ochengi was evaluated as a drug screen by testing 3 known filaricidal drugs. Groups of 5 Zebu cattle, naturally infected with more than 15 palpable O. ochengi nodules in the ventral skin, were treated with either...

Abstract

In an onchocerciasis endemic area in Cameroon, 117 Zebu calves one to 24 months old, were examined in January 1993 for palpable Onchocerca ochengi nodules and microfilariae in skin snips. A highly infected bait oxen was used for the production of infective larvae through the vector Simulium...

Abstract

Weekly examination of skin samples from the umbilical area of 654 cattle from April 1990 to April 1992 at an abattoir in Ariège revealed an overall 55.6% infection rate. Significant age and seasonal variations were found.

Abstract

The transmission of bovine Onchocerca spp. in the UK was investigated by studying the Ceratopogonidae and Simuliidae which attacked bait cattle between April and October at 2 sites in North Wales, where either Onchocerca lienalis and O. gutturosa (Cynwyd), or O. lienalis (Pentrefoelas) alone...

Abstract

Umbilical hides from 536 dairy cattle in Minnesota, USA, were tested for the microfilarial stage of Onchocerca species to determine the distribution of onchocerciasis in the state. The infection was widespread as microfilariae were obtained from 214 (40%) of the animals, representing nearly all...
