Abstract

Strongyle infection in dairy cows is responsible for the significant decrease in milk production. The veterinarian can estimate the incurred losses based on pasture infestation and the level of anthelmintics against Ostertagia ostertagi in bulk milk. Helminth prevention is based on pasture...

Abstract

In this study, we isolated and analysed a small heat shock protein (HSP) of Ostertagia ostertagi (Oo-HSP18). Oo-hsp18 is encoded by a single-copy gene and the full-length cDNA represents an 18-kDa protein. The expression of Oo-hsp18 is highly stage specific and restricted to the adult stage. The...

Abstract

On the plateau of eastern Zambia, trypanosomosis is endemic. Glossina morsitans morsitans Westwood (Diptera: Glossinidae), the only tsetse species present, is almost entirely dependent on livestock as its source of food with cattle being the most preferred host. To determine if tsetse challenge is...

Abstract

Predictive models of parasite life cycles increase our understanding of how parasite epidemiology is influenced by global changes and can be used to support decisions for more targeted worm control. Estimates of parasite population dynamics are needed to parameterize such models. The aim of this...

Abstract

With the increasing incidence of anthelmintic resistance worldwide, immunological control of worm infections through vaccination is often put forward as a rational and cost-effective alternative for anthelmintic drugs. In this study we report on the evaluation of a double-domain...

Abstract

The virulence of 31 genetically different Trypanosoma congolense strains belonging to the Savannah subgroup and isolated from cattle at 11 sites in a trypanosomiasis endemic area of eastern Zambia was compared. Virulence testing, done in OF1 mice, revealed three virulence categories. Strains were...

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

In this study, we describe the molecular analysis of zinc-metalloproteases from the abomasal nematode Ostertagia ostertagi which were exclusively recognized by local antibodies of immune cattle. Full-length or partial coding sequences of 4 different zinc-metalloprotease cDNAs of Ostertagia (met-1,...

Abstract

The transthyretin-like (ttl) gene family is one of the largest conserved nematode-specific gene families, coding for a group of proteins with significant sequence similarity to transthyretins (TTR) and transthyretin-related proteins (TRP). In the present study, we investigated the ttl family in ...

Abstract

The objectives of this study were (1) to evaluate available coprological and serological tests for detection of Fasciola hepatica infection in field conditions, (2) to investigate if the season when samples were collected affects the interpretation of the test results, and (3) to evaluate if the...
