Abstract

Gastrointestinal nematode parasites are important pathogens of all domesticated livestock species. Fecal egg counts (FEC) are routinely used for evaluating anthelmintic efficacy and for making targeted anthelmintic treatment decisions. Numerous FEC techniques exist and vary in precision and...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the status of anthelmintic resistance (AR) in ruminants and horses in Spain. The efficacy of commonly used macrocyclic lactones (MLs) - ivermectin (IVM) and moxidectin (MOX) - was measured in sheep, cattle and horses. In addition, albendazole (ABZ) and...

Abstract

Increasing threats from anthelmintic resistant nematode populations warrant and motivate a reappraisal of chemotherapeutic strategies for nematode control in ruminant livestock and horses. The objective of this paper is to present a guideline for the evaluation of products containing two or more...

Abstract

Anthelmintic resistance in helminths of horses and ruminants is widespread. This is predominantly the case for compounds belonging to the benzimidazole (BZ) group and particularly concerning small ruminants also for the macrocyclic lactones (ML). The BZ drug target is the β-tubulin. Together with...

Abstract

Purpose of review: The purpose of this review is to illustrate where drug resistance in parasitic nematodes has become a major problem. The mechanisms underlying anthelmintic resistance, the possible reasons for the development of anthelmintic resistance, and recommendations to minimize the further ...

Abstract

Benzimidazole (BZ) resistance is highly prevalent in cyathostomine populations of horses and trichostrongyle populations (mainly Haemonchus) of sheep in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Multiple resistance against BZ, levamisole or macrocyclic lactones (ML) was found in a few sheep or goat farms...

Abstract

Ivermectin and abamectin are 2 members of the group of parasiticides known as the avermectins; ivermectin was first registered as an injectable treatment for cattle in 1981. Since then, abamectin has been registered for cattle and ivermectin for horses. The relative popularity of the avermectins...

Abstract

In Portugal, cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and horses are generally treated once or twice a year (rarely 3 times a year) with anthelmintics. This is due to climatic conditions and the relatively low larval nematode burdens found on pastures. The major anthelmintics are benzimidazoles, but levamisole,...

Anthelmintic resistance in nematodes of farm animals. A seminar organised for the European Commission, held in Brussels, Belgium, from 8 to 9 November, 1993., 1994, pp 119-122
Abstract

The problem of anthelmintic resistance has so far received little attention in Belgium mainly because of the relative unimportance of the small ruminant production in this country. However, small surveys in horses and sheep have indicated that benzimidazole resistance is relatively widespread in...
