Abstract

Recent reports of suspected ivermectin (IVM) resistance in Ostertagia ostertagi have highlighted the need for research into the mechanisms of IVM resistance. However, there are no reports of resistant field isolates of O. ostertagi, which have been characterized for molecular research. Therefore,...

Abstract

Giardia and Cryptosporidium are important causes of diarrhoea in Bangladesh. The high prevalence of both parasites in humans and cattle in rural Bangladesh and the common use of water ponds by village inhabitants and their animals suggest a potential for zoonotic transmission. Direct transmission...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium in calves younger than 10 weeks was estimated in a cross-sectional epidemiological study on 100 dairy (n=499) and 50 beef (n=333) farms in East Flanders (Belgium), using a previously evaluated immunofluorescence assay (Merifluor®). The calf prevalence was 37% (95%...
