Abstract

In Lower Saxony, 103 of 259 (39.9%) first year grazing cattle herds were found to be serologically positive by ELISA for antibodies against D. viviparus. Risk of infection was higher for cattle herds with an early turnout and a long grazing period, i.e. more than 150 days. Herds that were observed...

Abstract

An ELISA using a protein extract from adult D. viviparus as antigen was evaluated with respect to its quality and suitability as a diagnostic method for epidemiological studies on dictyocaulosis. In experimentally infected animals, D. viviparus-specific antibodies were first detected between 30 and ...
