Abstract

The relationships between schistosome faecal egg counts (EPG), total tissue egg counts (TEC) and adult female worm burdens (FW) recorded at post mortem examination of 30 Friesian calves from three different field trials were analysed. The calves in study 1 (n=14) had been exposed to natural ...

Abstract

Schistosomiasis in cattle is reviewed with reference to the biology of schistosomes (distribution, life history and taxonomy), pathology and pathophysiology, diagnosis, epidemiology, and treatment and control. At least 10 species of Schistosoma have been reported to naturally infect cattle....

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

Current knowledge on the epidemiology and control of cattle schistosomiasis is reviewed with regard to: prevalence and intensity of infection; exposure to infection; host parasite relationships and the development of immunity; contamination of the environment with eggs.

Abstract

The transmission and interaction of schistosomes in the Senegal River Basin in Mali and Zambia are reviewed and some preliminary field data are presented. In the Senegal River Basin 4 species of schistosomes are prevalent: Schistosoma mansoni, S. haematobium, S. bovis and S. curassoni as well as...

Abstract

Comparison of the numbers of Schistosoma mattheei eggs and miracidia/g faeces in groups of naturally infected calves, heifers and adult cows showed that the reduction in faecal egg excretion recorded as infection progresses is associated with a decline in the ability of eggs to hatch. Whereas 50%...

Abstract

A total of 358 cattle was examined for schistosome infection in Zambian slaughterhouses. A total of 542 worms collected from 104 infected individuals was examined for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and phosphoglucomutase using isoelectric focusing. The overall prevalence of infection was 51%....

Abstract

During 1988 and 1989, the mesenteric veins of 901 cattle were examined for the presence of schistosomes at the Kandy slaughterhouse (Sri Lanka). 281 were infected, giving an overall prevalence of infection of 31.2%. The rate of infection in animals younger than 2 years was less (21.3%) than in...

Abstract

The potential of a recombinant Schistosoma bovis 28-kDa glutathione S-transferase (rSb28GST) to protect cattle against Fasciola hepatica was tested in a vaccination trial. Thirty-two calves were randomly divided into four groups of eight animals. Calves of the three vaccine groups received two...

Abstract

S. nasale was detected in 12.6% of 1393 cattle slaughtered in Kandy, Sri Lanka, between January and December 1987. The prevalence was significantly lower in March (3%) than in other months (10-17%). The prevalence of infection, number of lesions and severity of lesions increased with increasing age ...
