Abstract

Routine PM examination and serology (passive haemagglutination) were used in a study of 200 cattle and 100 buffaloes for cysticercosis. Cysticerci were found in 5.5% cattle and no buffaloes during PM examination while 13.5% of cattle and 9% of buffaloes were serologically positive.

Abstract

The possibility of using indirect haemagglutination and ELISA for the diagnosis of Cysticercus in cattle and for the isolation of specific antigen components from Taenia crassiceps larvae is discussed. Praziquantel at 100 mg/kg body-weight gave reliably good efficacies against C. bovis in both...

Abstract

Delipidized antigens from Cysticercus longicollis, C. bovis and Taenia saginata were used in the haemagglutination reaction to test sera of cattle from Germany and Kenya. Sera from normal cattle reacted in titres of 2 to 64. Sera from cattle infected with less than 10 cysts showed a similar range...

Abstract

The value of the indirect haemagglutination reaction in the diagnosis of severe cysticerciasis was demonstrated using the sera of 182 slaughtered cattle infected with cysticerciasis (with or without other helminth infections) and of 15 experimentally infected calves; even so the method was not...

Abstract

Antigens were prepared from Cysticercus longicollis, C. bovis and Taenia saginata and were tested by the indirect haemagglutination test against antisera of rabbits immunized with Freunds' adjuvant against them, or with sera of calves infected with T. saginata. There was a clear cross reaction...

Abstract

A passive microhaemagglutination test for Cysticercus bovis was developed using antigens from Taenia saginata, or Cysticercus bovis and formalised sheep red cells. Glutaraldehyde, bis-diazotised, benzidine or tannic acid were used as coupling agents. The sera came from bovines in France or in...

Abstract

A suitable antigen for the indirect haemagglutination test could be prepared by defatting a lyophilized homogenate of whole T. Saginata cysticerci with ethanol (at -70 deg C). then ether, and using the supernatant obtained after centrifuging a 1:20 suspension of the vacuum-dried residue in...

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

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...

Abstract

In Kenya, 42.1% of 195 cattle in the Rift Valley (high prevalence) were positive by IHA test using a crude Taenia saginata extract and 29.2% using a Sephadex purified extract. With 202 cattle from the Central Province (low prevalence) the respective figures were 5.4 and 5.9%. The results are higher ...
