Abstract

In this study, we screen archaeological soil samples by microscopy and analyse the samples by next generation sequencing to obtain results with parasites at species level and untargeted findings of plant and animal DNA. Three separate sediment layers of an ancient man-made pond in Hoby, Denmark,...

Abstract

Current EU regulation requires that every bovine carcass is examined for bovine cysticercosis (BC) at meat inspection. This is costly and might be superfluous at low BC prevalence. However, from a consumer view-point it may be important to identify and manage infected carcasses to avoid human...

Abstract

Bovine cysticercosis (BC) is a zoonotic, parasitic infection in cattle. Under the current EU meat inspection regulation, every single carcass from all bovines above 6 weeks of age is examined for BC. This method is costly and makes more sense in countries with higher number of BC-infected animals...

Abstract

The current surveillance system for bovine cysticercosis (BC) is time-consuming, costly, and might be of limited value in countries with low prevalence. The aim of this study was to develop a stochastic simulation model for analysis of tentative risk-based meat inspection systems for BC in Danish ...

Abstract

Urban sewage production is increasing and its agronomical use as a fertilizer has been advocated. Considerable defiance is prevalent in consumers and among farmers on the use of such fertilizers due to unknown pathological or environmental risks. The aim of the present review was to consider which...

Abstract

During meat inspection of cattle in 1990 a sudden increase in the incidence of Taenia saginata cysts was seen; outbreaks in 8 herds are reported in detail. In 3 herds the incidence was low, and the cysts few and old, but in the others, all from the same area of south-west Norway, up to 20 animals...

Abstract

The case group consisted of farms from which cattle with low-grade cysticercosis had been detected at slaughter. The control group consisted of farms where no cases were detected during the same period. The major risk factor identified was allowing cattle to drink from streams carrying effluent...

Abstract

The serum IgG response of cattle with cysticercosis caused by Taenia saginata was studied in an ELISA in which a T. saginata metacestode surface extract was used as antigen. In experimentally infected calves, a sharp rise in specific antibody levels was found 3-4 weeks after the infection followed...
