Abstract

Giardia duodenalis causes diarrhoea in humans and a wide range of mammals, including cattle. In cattle, the infection often has a chronic character. Infected calves may excrete cysts for several months, suggesting that Giardia is able to suppress and evade the immune response. In this study six...

Abstract

Nematode infections modulate the immune reaction of humans and livestock and may impair immune responses to non-parasitic antigens such as those present in vaccines. In this study, the relationship between antibodies directed against Ostertagia ostertagi, the economically most important nematode...

Abstract

Ostertagia ostertagi is considered one of the most economically important bovine parasites. As an alternative to anthelmintic treatment, an experimental host-protective vaccine was previously developed on the basis of ASP proteins derived from adult worms. Intramuscular injection of this vaccine,...

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

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

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

The present paper reviews the available literature on the development of immunity to animal Schistosoma infections. The majority of the studies on animal schistosomiasis were performed in cattle and pigs and only Schistosoma mattheei, S. bovis and S. japonicum received particular attention, mainly...

Abstract

Sera from calves vaccinated with the recombinant Schistosoma bovis-derived 28-kDa glutathione S-transferase (28GST) and subsequently naturally or experimentally exposed to S. mattheei were studied for their content of specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgA antibodies to recombinant S. bovis 28GST, ...

Abstract

Larval migration inhibition (LMI) activity of abomasal mucus from calves naturally infected with gastrointestinal nematodes was studied in vitro. LMI activity was also assessed in serum from calves during both natural and artificial O. ostertagi infections to monitor the development of acquired...

Abstract

This review briefly summarises different aspects (including development and measurement) and manifestations of protective immunity in cattle against gastrointestinal nematodes, especially Ostertagia ostertagi, and the factors that may interact with the development of this immunity. There follows a...
