Abstract

From June 1986 to December 1988 a PM survey was carried out in 11 slaughterhouses in Ituri on the geographical distribution and prevalence of the main cattle helminths. Trematodes, except paramphistomes, had a heterogeneous distribution. Prevalence of Fasciola gigantica ranged from 9 to 72%...

Abstract

Samples of muscles from 198 Canadian cattle with suspected lesions of eosinophilic myositis were examined histologically and by pepsin digestion. Sera from 51 of the 198 animals were also examined by ELISA for anti-Trichinella antibodies. Viable larvae of Trichinella were not recovered from any of...

Abstract

Between October 1982 and September 1983 the prevalence of cysticercosis was 3.24% in 1 270 231 cattle slaughtered at 11 abattoirs, but the prevalence in 408 022 slaughtered cattle marketed by feedlots was 4.1%. Investigations at feedlots with a high prevalence of cysticercosis identified human...

Abstract

Examination at necropsy of 269 bulls on a farm revealed 65 (24.2%) animals harbouring bovine cysticerci. CIEP using homologous antigen from Taenia saginata adults showed 44.8% sensitivity and 86.4% specificity. Heterologous antigen from Taenia crassiceps cysticerci gave 28.3% sensitivity and 89.9%...
