Abstract

Data from 214 845 young and 280 720 adult dairy cattle in Flanders, Belgium, were used for the assessment of direct costs related to liver fluke [Fasciola spp.] and gastrointestinal nematodes. Anthelmintic treatment of a young and old animal were estimated at 3.5 and 10.9 euros, respectively...

Abstract

Predictive models of parasite life cycles increase our understanding of how parasite epidemiology is influenced by global changes and can be used to support decisions for more targeted worm control. Estimates of parasite population dynamics are needed to parameterize such models. The aim of this...

Abstract

With the increasing incidence of anthelmintic resistance worldwide, immunological control of worm infections through vaccination is often put forward as a rational and cost-effective alternative for anthelmintic drugs. In this study we report on the evaluation of a double-domain...

Abstract

The identification of protective helminth antigens remains the most important challenge in the development of parasitic vaccines. To identify protective antigens of Ostertagia ostertagi, an important abomasal parasite of cattle, parasite-specific local antibodies from the abomasal mucus and from...

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

Faecal samples were collected from 500 cattle and 385 buffaloes belonging to backyard farmers from 24 villages in the province of Bukidnon, Mindanao, Philippines, between January and July 1997. Nematode infections were studied by faecal egg counts and infective larvae differentiation. The overall...

Abstract

Helminth infections are an important cause of lost productivity in livestock world-wide, often necessitating anthelmintic treatment. However, a large part of the anthelmintics are used indiscriminately because the parasite levels are too low to justify treatment or because the treatments are not...

Abstract

The transthyretin-like (ttl) gene family is one of the largest conserved nematode-specific gene families, coding for a group of proteins with significant sequence similarity to transthyretins (TTR) and transthyretin-related proteins (TRP). In the present study, we investigated the ttl family in ...
