Abstract

Background: Schistosomiasis in the People's Republic of China (PRC) can be traced back to antiquity. In the past 60 years, the Chinese government has made great efforts to control this persistent disease with elimination slated by 2020 through the implementation of a comprehensive control strategy. ...

Abstract

This study determined the haematological changes due to the infection of fascioliasis in cattle. The haematological indices of blood samples collected from purposely selected Fasciola-infected and non-infected cattle were analyzed using standard methods. Statistical analysis revealed high...

Abstract

Schistosomiasis in China has been substantially reduced due to an effective control programme employing various measures including bovine and human chemotherapy, and the removal of bovines from endemic areas. To fulfil elimination targets, it will be necessary to identify other possible reservoir...

Abstract

Natural S. spindale infection is not diagnosed frequently by faecal examination since direct smear and salt floatation methods for detecting eggs have poor sensitivity. In the present study, Indirect ELISA was conducted to detect specific antibodies to Schistosoma spindale infection in bovines...

Abstract

The cause of zoonotic schistosomiasis in the Philippines is Schistosoma japonicum, which infects up to 46 mammalian hosts, including humans and bovines. In China, water buffaloes have been identified as major reservoir hosts for schistosomiasis japonica, contributing up to 75% of human...

Abstract

Paramphistome infections have been associated with significant morbidity, caused chiefly by the activity of juvenile flukes in the intestine of the ruminant final host. Most cases have been reported in tropical and sub-tropical areas. However, recent reports of an apparent increase in the incidence ...

Abstract

In order to establish a rapid method to diagnose bovine schistosomiasis, a diagnostic strip to detect the bovine antibody against Schistosoma japonica was trial-produced based on using rabbit anti-bovine IgG labelled with red latex as an immunoprobe, using soluble egg antigen of Schistosoma...

Abstract

Transmission patterns of Fasciola hepatica were investigated on beef cattle (n=3) and sheep (n=3) farms in Sweden between 2011 and 2012. The dynamics of fluke infection, particularly estimated time of infection, were screened each grazing season by ELISA detection of antibodies in lambs (n=94) and...

Abstract

The liver fluke Fasciola hepatica is one of the most important parasites in cattle farming worldwide and responsible for serious economic losses. In this study, three ELISAs for the detection of antibodies against F. hepatica were compared by analysis of serum antibody levels of 20 calves infected...
