Abstract

A cross-sectional study was carried out to determine the prevalence and distribution of Fasciola gigantica infections in communally grazed and ranch-grazed beef cattle through coprological examination. A total of 8646 cattle (4618 adults, 2843 weaners and 1185 calves) faecal samples were collected...

Abstract

Although the efficacy of triclabendazole treatment against Fasciola gigantica has been shown before in cattle and buffaloes, there appears to be no published report on the efficacy of triclabendazole in impala or other antelope species. As part of a health monitoring programme at Mulungushi...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to identify and determine the genetic diversity of Fasciola species in cattle from Zimbabwe, the KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa and selected wildlife hosts from Zimbabwe. This was based on analysis of DNA sequences of the nuclear ribosomal internal...

Abstract

A survey on gastrointestinal parasitic infections in Brahman crossbred cattle, reared at Savar Dairy Farm (on-station) and at farmers' house (on-farm), was conducted in winter and rainy season using coproscopy to determine the effect of sex and age of animals, seasons and management system on the...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to phylogenetically analyze Fasciola gigantica (F. gigantica) from mainland India and to reveal the expansion history of F. gigantica in the Indian subcontinent. We analyzed 40 Fasciola flukes that were collected from Delhi, in the Indian mainland, and identified them as ...

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

The gene expression of interleukin-2 and interleukin-10 in calves with a primary infection of Fasciola gigantica was studied. Five calves were infected orally with a dose of 1000 viable metacercariae of F. gigantica and five calves served as uninfected control animals. Expression of two cytokine...

Abstract

Antibodies against a specific 88 000 MW antigen of Fasciola gigantica were used for the detection of circulating antigen in the sera of cattle with experimental and natural infections of F. gigantica by a double antibody ELISA. Circulating antigen was detectable as early as the second and third...

Abstract

Triclabendazole (Fasinex) and oxyclozanide (Zanil) were tested in cattle naturally infected with Fasciola gigantica on 2 farms in Kiambu District, Kenya. For triclabendazole, faecal egg counts were reduced by 95.9% on day 14 and 91.5% on day 28 post treatment on Iganjo farm, and by 100% on day 14...

Abstract

Fresh faecal samples from 209 cattle and 186 buffaloes from Dhankuta district, Nepal, were examined for Fasciola ova during November and December, 1991. Prevalence of infection was highest in buffaloes (33.3% of 123 infected in a "dry" area and 71.4% of 63 infected in a "wet" area, compared with...
