Abstract

In the farming enterprises of the Ada district, sheep and goats were most commonly infected with pneumonia and helminthiasis which led to severe losses of lambs and sheep. In cattle, helminthiasis and malnutrition caused considerable losses of calves. Faecal investigations showed that 72% of the ...

Abstract

A simple method for evaluating the sensitivity of screening procedures for the detection of three common causes of meat condemnation in Nigeria, fascioliasis, cysticercosis and tuberculosis, is described. For all three conditions, the sensitivity of detection was low (0-20%). A number of factors...

Abstract

Among the 31 422 cattle, sheep and pigs slaughtered at Shumen abattoir during 1988 and 1989, lesions due to helminthoses, requiring condemnation of the affected organs (liver, lungs and heart) were found in 71% of animals. Cysticercosis, echinococcosis and fascioliasis were the commonest causes of...

Abstract

Investigations carried out on a beef cattle farm in the Kalmyk ASSR, USSR, from 1985 revealed the presence of hydatids (in 9.6% of 73 carcasses), Neoascaris and Moniezia (in 7.8 and 12.7% of 63 carcasses); all the animals were infected with gastrointestinal strongyles; cysticercosis, Strongyloides...

Abstract

An ammonium sulfate fraction of Taenia hydatigena cyst fluid (ThFAS) was further fractionated by hydrophobic interaction chromatography, using alkylagarose and ω-amino alkylagarose columns, in an effort to isolate and purify a specific diagnostic antigen in the ThFAS preparation. The <12 kDa antigen had an affinity for immobilized alkanes with chain length of six carbons or greater. The antigen was recovered in an ethylene glycol eluate from a hexylagarose column then analysed by Western blot; it reacted with bovine and human cysticercosis infection sera and with specific monoclonal antibodies but not with control sera or fascioliasis infection sera. When the eluate was used as coating antigen in a plate ELISA assay no false positive reactions were seen in sera from cattle...

Abstract

The rates of Echinococcus infection in man and meat animals (intermediate hosts) and dogs (the definitive host) must be defined before control programmes can be evaluated. The prevalence of echinococcosis in meat animals in Spain is reviewed, with reference to the organs affected and the rates of...

Abstract

Antigenic extract of C. bovis, obtained by gel-filtration on Sephadex G-75, and heterologous C. cellulosae antigen, were tested in an enzyme immunoassay on 202 sera from cattle with natural cysticercosis and 160 sera from animals with other helminths. The sensitivity of the test was 55.8 and 44.2%...

Abstract

An antigenic fraction (ThFAS) isolated from Taenia hydatigena metacestode cyst fluid was used in an ELISA to detect antibodies to T. saginata in experimentally and naturally infected cattle. In 10 calves given 1000 to 100 000 T. saginata eggs (20% to 60% viability), IgG and IgM antibodies were...
