Abstract

Fascioliasis is a plantborne and zoonotic parasitic disease caused by fasciolid liver flukes. Fasciola hepatica is the only fasciolid species described in the Americas. Human fascioliasis endemic areas are mainly located in high altitude areas of the Americas. Given the necessity to characterize F. ...

Abstract

Inter-simple sequence repeats markers were used to determinate the genetic variability of Fasciola hepatica populations recovered from sheep and cattle from Spain (Sp1, Sp2, Sp3 and Sp4), UK (Eng), Ireland (Ir) and Mexico (Mex). Twenty five primers were tested but only five produced 39 reproducible ...

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to estimate the prevalence of Fasciola hepatica in cattle, goats and sheep from the municipalities of Guaymas and Cajeme, Sonora State, Mexico using the indirect ELISA and Benedeck's sedimentation tests. A total of 2,936 serum and faecal samples from 1,346 bovines,...

Abstract

A 19-month study on the prevalence of fasciolosis in 30 naturally infected cows, the presence of infected and non-infected Lymnaea (Fossaria) humilis snails, and variation in soil temperature and humidity is reported. The prevalence of fasciolosis in cattle declined from around 50% in March to 30%...

Abstract

42 cattle naturally infected with F. hepatica were divided into 3 groups of 14 animals each. Group A was treated every 56 days with triclabendazole (12 mg/kg), Group B every 112 days, and Group C was the untreated control. The efficacy of treatment was evaluated using sedimentation egg count and...

Abstract

To establish seasonal trends in infection and maturity of Fasciola hepatica in cattle in relation to macroclimatic factors, 2730 condemned livers were examined from March 1989 to February 1992. Livestock came from Jalapa, Tacotalpa and Teapa, all municipalities in Tabasco State, Mexico. Flukes were ...

Abstract

In order to evaluate 2 models of chemotheraphy againts Fasciola hepatica in naturally infected cattle located in a farm in the municipality of Nautla in the state of Veracruz in Mexico, triclabendazole (tbz) was administered once or twice in different months to reduce faecal egg output in a...

Abstract

To standardize the test, 80 serum samples from adult cattle were used. 40 were from the State of Sonora (a fasciolosis-free area) and 40 from the State of Hidalgo (endemic for fasciolosis). The test showed a 97.5% sensitivity and 80.0% specificity. The cut-off value was 7 mm. In another study, 15...
