Abstract

Psoroptic mange, caused by Psoroptes ovis, is a problem on many Flemish farms where Belgian blue beef cattle are bred. Two intensive treatment schedules were evaluated on nine Belgian blue farms with a persistent mange problem. On farms 1 to 7, all animals were treated twice (with a...

Abstract

A total of 28 Holstein-Friesian calves were experimentally infected with 105Giardia duodenalis cysts. Eleven days later, all animals were allocated into two groups of 14 animals each, based on the average pre-treatment cyst counts. Treatment was randomly assigned to one of the two groups, and all...

Abstract

Anthelmintic resistance is emerging in dairy cattle and this can result in a lack of effective control and production losses. Therefore, sustainable control strategies, such as targeted treatments (TT) and targeted selected treatments (TST), should be adopted by the industry. TT and TST approaches...

Abstract

Livestock farming is central to global food security and to the sustainability of rural communities throughout Europe. Animal health management has a major impact on farming efficiency. Although animal health research has provided effective prevention strategies for the major endemic diseases of...

Abstract

Activation associated secreted proteins (ASP) are members of a nematode-specific protein family belonging to the SCP/Tpx-1/Ag5/PR-1/Sc7 family. Three different types of molecules have been identified in this family: two-domain ASPs and single-domain ASPs showing homology to either the C-terminal or ...

Abstract

Giardia duodenalis causes diarrhoea in humans and a wide range of mammals, including cattle. In cattle, the infection often has a chronic character. Infected calves may excrete cysts for several months, suggesting that Giardia is able to suppress and evade the immune response. In this study six...

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

Previous vaccination trials with calves have shown that intramuscular immunization with natively purified activation-associated secreted proteins (ASPs) of Ostertagia ostertagi induces protection against a homologous challenge infection with a 74% reduction in cumulative faecal egg counts and a...

Abstract

Giardia duodenalis is a protozoan parasite known to infect animals and humans. Zoonotic transmission of G. duodenalis can occur by the consumption of drinking water produced from surface water that is contaminated by runoff from manure-laden fields or pastures. Although it was previously reported...

Abstract

This paper compares 2 methods, the coefficient of variation and the geNorm software programme, for the evaluation of 5 potential reference genes in the cattle parasite Ostertagia ostertagi to be used for quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis. Both methods identified Tubb...
