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

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

It is demonstrated that Schistosoma curassoni, a parasite of sheep, cattle and goats in parts of West Africa, will live for at least 8 years and 5 months in a sheep. The purpose of this study was to present accurate data on the longevity of S. curassoni in a natural host in a laboratory situation...

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

This study investigated interactions among Fasciola gigantica, Schistosoma spp. and Amphistomum spp. concurrent natural infections in Zambian cattle, based on egg and worm counts. In the abattoir 315 cattle were screened for worms of F. gigantica in the liver, Schistosoma spp. in mesenteric veins...

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

The objective of this study was to elucidate whether calves born to infected dams had been primed against Schistosoma mattheei antigens. Infection-confirmed, pregnant cows were randomly selected for monitoring their offspring. Pre-colostral serum was collected from the neonates for the detection of ...

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

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%...
