Abstract

In an outbreak on one farm 67 of 265 cattle slaughtered during two years had cysticercosis. Counterimmunoelectrophoresis of serum samples from slaughter cattle showed 44.8% sensitivity and 86.4% specificity for homologous Taenia saginata strobilus antigen, compared with 28.3% and 89.9% for...

Abstract

The serum IgG response of cattle with cysticercosis caused by Taenia saginata was studied in an ELISA in which a T. saginata metacestode surface extract was used as antigen. In experimentally infected calves, a sharp rise in specific antibody levels was found 3-4 weeks after the infection followed...

Abstract

Experiments were carried out with eight calves aged 11-14 weeks, experimentally infected with Taenia saginata eggs, to ascertain the optimum conditions for the use of ELISA. An increase in ELISA values was observed after the second to fifth week of infection. At the same time serum antibodies were...

Abstract

The indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) test using activated oncospheres as antigen was made on the sera of 7 calves experimentally infected with Taenia saginata eggs. On the day of infection the titres ranged from 1:4 to 1:32. Significant titres of 1:64 began to appear by day 7 and reached a peak...

Abstract

Three protein fractions, F1, F2 and F3, were obtained from antigens prepared from mature Taenia saginata. Using the IHA test, crude antigen and F1 consistently gave high titres with sera from calves experimentally infected with Cysticercus bovis whereas F2 and F3 either showed low antigenic...

Abstract

A radioimmunoassay technique using labelled cattle anti-IgG and, as antigen, Taenia saginata ova or scoleces of Cysticercus pisiformis [? said to have been obtained experimentally in rabbits infected with T. saginata ova] was used for the diagnosis of C. bovis in cattle. The eggs proved ineffective ...

Abstract

Indirect haemagglutination (IHA) and the indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) tests using serum from seven experimentally infected and four non-infected calves as well as 285 naturally infected and non-infected adult slaughter cattle were compared. Most calves showed detectable antibody responses...
