Abstract

Neospora caninum is a commonly diagnosed cause of reproductive losses in farmed ruminants worldwide. This study examined 495 and 308 samples (brain, heart and placenta) which were collected from 455 and 119 aborted cattle and sheep fetuses, respectively. DNA was extracted and a nested Neospora ITS1 ...

Abstract

Toxoplasmosis is an important zoonotic disease transmitted to humans and warm-blooded animals by a ubiquitous parasite Toxoplasma gondii. One of the most common sources of human infection is the ingestion of tissue cysts through raw or undercooked meat. The present study was conducted to...

AbstractFull Text

Neosporosis is caused by Neospora caninum, which is responsible for abortion in ruminants causing considerable economic losses world-wide. However, limited information is available regarding N. caninum infection in domestic bovines and goats in Jiangxi Province, China. In order to detect antibodies ...

Abstract

Babesia spp. are intraerythrocytic tick-transmitted apicomplexan protozoans, considered to be the second most commonly found parasites in the blood of mammals after trypanosomes. Ever since the discovery of parasitic inclusions in erythrocytes of cattle by Victor Babes, a great number of Babesia...

Abstract

Brucellosis and Toxoplasmosis are important zoonotic diseases, and Neospora caninum is a parasite causing disease in cattle and other animals. Brucella spp. and N. caninum can cause abortions in cattle, and Toxoplasmosis is a relevant cause of abortion for small ruminants, resulting in economic...

Abstract

Neospora caninum is one of the main agents that causes abortions in cattle worldwide. However, little is known about the pathogenesis of neosporosis in small ruminants, especially goats. Gerbils (Meriones unguiculatus) have been used as a model for neosporosis, and this species is highly...

Abstract

To estimate the seroprevalence of toxoplasmosis and risk factors for seropositivity in sheep, goats and cattle in Dhaka, Mymensingh, Sirajganj and Chittagong districts in Bangladesh, 1104 sera samples (552 sheep, 300 goats and 252 cattle) were randomly selected and tested by an indirect enzyme...

Abstract

Buxtonellosis is a disease caused by the ciliated protozoan Buxtonella sulcata (Jameson, 1926). B. sulcata is a common protozoan of ruminants and may result in subclinical infection or clinical disease including diarrhea. This study examined the prevalence of B. sulcata in cattle from Sanadaj...

AbstractFull Text

Toxoplasmosis is an important zoonotic parasitic disease world-wide. However, data on Toxoplasma gondii infection in ruminants are scarce in Assiut governorate, Egypt. Thus we conducted a survey on the seroprevalence of T. gondii infection by using latex agglutination test (LAT) and enzyme-linked...

Abstract

N. caninum, bovine viral diarrhoea virus, Brucella abortus and Leptospira interrogans serovar Hardjo are globally significant reproductive pathogens that cause abortion and reproductive loss in large ruminants. Prevalence information is lacking in Lao People's Democratic Republic (Laos) despite the ...
