Abstract

The liver fluke Fasciola hepatica is a parasite of ruminants with a worldwide distribution and an apparent increasing incidence in EU member states. Effective control in dairy cattle is hampered by the lack of flukicides with a zero-withdrawal time for milk, leaving the dry period as the only time...

Abstract

Nematode infections modulate the immune reaction of humans and livestock and may impair immune responses to non-parasitic antigens such as those present in vaccines. In this study, the relationship between antibodies directed against Ostertagia ostertagi, the economically most important nematode...

Abstract

During previous work Schistosoma antibodies and circulating antigens were detected at birth in the serum from some calves born to Schistosoma mattheei infected mothers. The objectives of the present survey were: (1) to investigate the proportion of calves, born to cows infected with S. mattheei,...

Abstract

Background: Gastrointestinal nematodes are an important cause of reduced performance in cattle. Previous studies in Europe showed that after anthelmintic treatment an average gain in milk production of around 1 kg per day/cow can be expected. However, (1) these studies have mainly evaluated...

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 objective of this study was to elucidate whether calves born to infected dams had been primed against Schistosoma mattheei antigens. Infection-confirmed, pregnant cows were randomly selected for monitoring their offspring. Pre-colostral serum was collected from the neonates for the detection of ...

Abstract

Studies have indicated that the intake of colostrum could modulate the offspring reaction towards early schistosome infections. The effect of colostrum (containing immunoglobulins, parasite antigens, immune cells and other cell-related products) on late Schistosoma infections is to our knowledge...

Abstract

An indirect Ostertagia ostertagi ELISA on milk is a promising diagnostic tool in bovine parasitology. Interpretation of the test results requires a good knowledge of the test characteristics. In this study, border effects, the repeatability of the ELISA and the effect of different factors such as...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were (1) to determine the effect of a treatment with eprinomectin in autumn of pastured dairy herds on the anti-Ostertagia ostertagi bulk-tank milk antibody level, (2) to determine the overall effect of this treatment on three milk-production parameters (milk yield,...

Abstract

Our primary objective was to determine the relationships between Fasciola-specific antibody levels in bulk-tank milk and measures of productivity to estimate economic losses that are associated with Fasciola infections. A bulk-tank milk sample was collected in March 2004 from 1105 dairy herds in...
