Abstract

A 'dipstick' immunoassay for bovine cysticercosis, using an antigen isolated from Taenia hydatigena cyst fluid, was evaluated in cattle experimentally infected with T. saginata. The assay correctly identified 6 of 7 infected cattle, including an animal in which only 12 living cysticerci were found. ...

Abstract

A severe outbreak of bovine cysticerciasis in a fattening unit of the Šumava industrial cattle farm, Czechoslovakia, in 1983-1984 was traced to 3 workers connected with the farm. Their recent medical history and their toilet habits, which were in part responsible for contamination of the animal...

Abstract

Two groups of calves aged 10 to 15 weeks were orally infected with either 6000 or 30 000 T. saginata eggs. 3 to 4 months later they were treated with praziquantel, 3 doses of 50 mg/kg on 3 consecutive days. All the cysticerci were killed by the drug and most were absorbed by between 6 and 9 months...

Abstract

The possibility of using indirect haemagglutination and ELISA for the diagnosis of Cysticercus in cattle and for the isolation of specific antigen components from Taenia crassiceps larvae is discussed. Praziquantel at 100 mg/kg body-weight gave reliably good efficacies against C. bovis in both...

Abstract

Twelve 3-4 months old calves were given 10 000 eggs of T. saginata; 106 days later, four animals were treated orally with 50 mg/kg of albendazole and four animals with a mixture of the same dose of albendazole and 10 mg/kg of praziquantel. Four animals remained untreated as controls. Twenty-five...

Abstract

Praziquantel at 50 mg/kg body weight given as an aqueous suspension orally for 2 consecutive days was 100% effective (on necropsy data) against experimental cysticerciasis in calves treated 1, 2 or 3 months after infection. The Soviet preparation Oxichloron (a haloid derivative of bisphenol), at...

Abstract

C. bovis activated hexacanths (obtained by immersion of oncospheres in sodium sulphide) were injected subcutaneously at the rate of 150 to 200 into 5 sites on either side of a calf. For comparison, hexacanths obtained by the Silverman (1954) technique were injected into 2 of the sites. 60 to 80% of ...

Abstract

Approximately 50,000 Taenia saginata eggs were given orally to bullocks. 10 weeks later, mebendazole or praziquantel was administered in the fodder in single or multiple doses. The animals were slaughtered at intervals after medication when the numbers and viability of cysticerci in various sites...

Abstract

Antigen was prepared from eggs of Taenia ovis and emulsified with Freund's complete adjuvant, and injected into lambs. A significant degree of resistance was observed to a subsequent challenge infection. The possibility of the serodiagnosis of T. ovis in dogs is being examined. A deterministic...

Abstract

Bovine ostertagiasis (types I and II) is briefly described and an account is given of epizootiological studies on the disease in the USA. It is explained why faecal egg counts can be misleading with respect to diagnosis and attention is then paid to the question whether or not anthelmintic...
