Abstract

Cystic Echinococcosis (CE) caused by Echinococcus granulosus sensu lato (s.l.) is a neglected helminth zoonosis affecting humans and various animal species. Human CE has been reported in almost all countries of sub-Saharan Africa but its prevalence and public health impact are subject to large...

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

The study investigated whether the susceptibility of calves to an early Schistosoma mattheei infection may be modified by intake of colostrum from infected cows. Twelve calves born to non-infected mothers were randomly divided into 2 groups of 6. The animals from group 1 were fed colostrum...

Abstract

The present work investigated the transplacental passage of circulating anodic schistosome antigens (CAA) and the production of foetal antibodies in response to antigenic stimulation in Schistosoma mattheei infected cows. Three groups were available: six calves born to non-infected cows received...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium and the possibility of zoonotic transmission on dairy farms were examined. Eighteen cases of cryptosporidiosis (prevalence 6%) were identified in 82 farm workers and 207 household members. Furthermore, 70 (34%) of 207 calf samples were positive. Based on the 70 kDa ...

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

A sero-epidemiological study of Taenia saginata cysticercosis was carried out in adult cattle in Zambia to determine the prevalence and study the influence of the farming system on the infection rate. Between December 1999 and September 2000, 628 blood samples were taken from beef and dairy cattle...

Abstract

To estimate the prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. in three different husbandry systems in Zambia, faecal samples were collected from calves up to the age of 3 months. Faecal consistency was scored for correlation with infection. Additionally, 45 positive samples were selected for genotyping by...

Abstract

The present paper reviews the available literature on the development of immunity to animal Schistosoma infections. The majority of the studies on animal schistosomiasis were performed in cattle and pigs and only Schistosoma mattheei, S. bovis and S. japonicum received particular attention, mainly...
