Abstract

Neospora caninum is a protozoan parasite with a host preference for cattle and dogs. Bovine neosporosis has emerged as a major cause of abortion in cattle worldwide. An important question to better understand the disease is why all infected cows do not abort? At present there is no effective...

Abstract

Neosporosis, caused by the apicomplexan protozoan Neospora caninum, is a disease which affects a wide range of mammalian hosts (mainly cattle and dogs). N. caninum infection is considered the major cause of livestock abortions worldwide, and therefore is responsible for great losses in the...
