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...

Abstract

Intramuscular immunization of calves with an excretory-secretory antigen fraction enriched for cysteine proteinase activity (ES-thiol) and QuilA as adjuvant induces a protective immune response against the abomasal nematode Ostertagia ostertagi. A study was conducted to confirm the protective...

Abstract

Data from 214 845 young and 280 720 adult dairy cattle in Flanders, Belgium, were used for the assessment of direct costs related to liver fluke [Fasciola spp.] and gastrointestinal nematodes. Anthelmintic treatment of a young and old animal were estimated at 3.5 and 10.9 euros, respectively...

AbstractFull Text

In order to improve the spatial resolution of current risk maps for fasciolosis in cattle, more knowledge is needed with respect to farm-level factors that determine infection risk. In this study, we visited 39 dairy farms within a predefined low- and high-risk area for fasciolosis in Belgium and...

Abstract

Belgian Blue (BB) cattle are very sensitive to mange caused by Psoroptes ovis and, in contrast to the case in Holstein cattle, single treatments with ivermectin do not result in complete elimination of the parasite. The objective of the present study was to determine the concentration of ivermectin ...

Abstract

Before revised World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP) guidelines on the detection of anthelmintic resistance can be produced, validation of modified and new methods is required in laboratories in different parts of the world. There is a great need for improved...
