Abstract

Fasciola hepatica is a parasitic trematode of global importance in livestock. Control strategies reliant on anthelmintics are unsustainable due to the emergence of drug resistance. Vaccines are under development, but efficacies are variable. Evidence from experimental infection suggests that...

Abstract

A survey on gastrointestinal parasitic infections in Brahman crossbred cattle, reared at Savar Dairy Farm (on-station) and at farmers' house (on-farm), was conducted in winter and rainy season using coproscopy to determine the effect of sex and age of animals, seasons and management system on the...

Abstract

The liver fluke Fasciola hepatica remains an important agent of food-borne trematode disease producing great economic losses due to its negative effect on productivity of livestock grazing in temperate areas. The prevailing control strategy based on anthelmintic drugs is unsustainable due to...

Abstract

In November 2002, an epidemiological study was conducted in Loncopué, Neuquén, Argentina to detect the origin of infection in a human case of fascioliasis confirmed by indirect ELISA six months before the study. Thirty-five individual faecal samples were taken from domestic livestock, and...

Abstract

DIG-ELISA (diffusion-in-gel ELISA) was used to test sera from 50 negative cattle and from 335 positive cattle for anti-Fasciola hepatica antibodies. The average reaction zone diameter (RZD) ± SD was 2.5 ± 2.6 mm for negative samples and 12.5 ± 2.2 mm for positive samples. Positive and negative...

Abstract

Antibodies against a specific 88 000 MW antigen of Fasciola gigantica were used for the detection of circulating antigen in the sera of cattle with experimental and natural infections of F. gigantica by a double antibody ELISA. Circulating antigen was detectable as early as the second and third...

Abstract

Bile samples, from slaughtered cattle harbouring between 120 and 280 adult lancet flukes, were used to investigate the range of somatic proteins inducing local antibody responses in naturally infected animals. Lancet fluke infections induced local (bile) antibody responses against Tris-buffered...

Abstract

Triclabendazole (Fasinex) and oxyclozanide (Zanil) were tested in cattle naturally infected with Fasciola gigantica on 2 farms in Kiambu District, Kenya. For triclabendazole, faecal egg counts were reduced by 95.9% on day 14 and 91.5% on day 28 post treatment on Iganjo farm, and by 100% on day 14...
