Abstract

Giardia and Cryptosporidium are important causes of diarrhoea in Bangladesh. The high prevalence of both parasites in humans and cattle in rural Bangladesh and the common use of water ponds by village inhabitants and their animals suggest a potential for zoonotic transmission. Direct transmission...

Abstract

A Bayesian approach was used to evaluate four immunological assays for the clinical diagnosis of cryptosporidiosis in calves: an immunofluorescence assay (IFA), two ELISA tests and an immunochromatographic (dipstick) assay. Faecal samples from 287 calves aged less than 6 weeks with clinical signs...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium in calves and the test properties of six diagnostic assays (microscopy (ME), an immunofluorescence assay (IFA), two ELISA and two PCR assays) were estimated using Bayesian analysis. In a first Bayesian approach, the test results of the four conventional techniques...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium and the possibility of zoonotic transmission on dairy farms were examined. Eighteen cases of cryptosporidiosis (prevalence 6%) were identified in 82 farm workers and 207 household members. Furthermore, 70 (34%) of 207 calf samples were positive. Based on the 70 kDa ...

Abstract

In northern Vietnam, dairy cattle are mainly managed in small-scale farms, where animals are kept confined and feeding occurs by cut and carry methods. In the present study the occurrence of parasitic infections was examined in five provinces around Hanoi. A total of 201 farms were visited, and 334 ...

Abstract

The prevalence of Cryptosporidium in calves younger than 10 weeks was estimated in a cross-sectional epidemiological study on 100 dairy (n=499) and 50 beef (n=333) farms in East Flanders (Belgium), using a previously evaluated immunofluorescence assay (Merifluor®). The calf prevalence was 37% (95%...

Abstract

The role of protozoan parasites in the aetiology of diarrhoea in calves is highlighted with emphasis on correct diagnosis. In neonatal calves, Cryptosporidium parvum is isolated in more than 44% of the faeces of diarrhoeic calves. In calves older than one month, both Eimeria bovis and E. zuernii,...

Abstract

The clinical and zoonotic importance, prevalence and diagnosis and control of Cryptosporidium and Giardia in dairy and beef cattle are discussed. The results of studies on prevalence and diagnostic test evaluation as well as treatment carried out in dairy and beef calves from Belgium are presented. ...

Abstract

To estimate the prevalence of Cryptosporidium spp. in three different husbandry systems in Zambia, faecal samples were collected from calves up to the age of 3 months. Faecal consistency was scored for correlation with infection. Additionally, 45 positive samples were selected for genotyping by...
