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

This review discusses the immune responses to gastrointestinal nematodes in cattle and the different immunological and parasitological parameters used to assess acquired immunity. Measuring acquired immunity to gastrointestinal nematodes in cattle (e.g. for the evaluation of candidate parasite...

Abstract

Helminth infections are an important cause of lost productivity in livestock world-wide, often necessitating anthelmintic treatment. However, a large part of the anthelmintics are used indiscriminately because the parasite levels are too low to justify treatment or because the treatments are not...

Abstract

The evolution of antigenically distinct pathogen strains that fail to cross-protect is well documented for pathogens controlled primarily by humoral immune responses. Unlike antibodies, which recognise native proteins, protective T cells can potentially recognise epitopes in a variety of proteins...

Abstract

This article poses, and discusses, the following questions: based on the distribution of cattle worldwide, what are the target parasites; can we continue to rely on control based mainly on the use of (highly effective) anthelmintics; what are the prospects for non-chemical control; who will develop ...

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

The problem of anthelmintic resistance has so far received little attention in Belgium mainly because of the relative unimportance of the small ruminant production in this country. However, small surveys in horses and sheep have indicated that benzimidazole resistance is relatively widespread in...

Abstract

The value and application of pepsinogen, gastrin and antibody response as diagnostic tools in bovine ostertagiasis are discussed. These 3 parameters are useful and comparable for confirming clinical disease in calves during their first grazing season. However, their value for detecting subclinical...
