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

Neospora caninum is a cause of bovine abortion and economic loss to beef and dairy farmers. This can be profound in small island farming communities such as Guernsey. The shedding of oocysts by dogs can have a large impact on herds with low numbers of cattle. To better understand the potential...

Abstract

Neospora caninum is an apicomplexan protozoan parasite that is a leading cause of abortion in cattle. Detection of parasite-specific DNA by PCR is a highly sensitive method for identifying the presence of N. caninum in a variety of tissues. We developed and validated a probe-based real-time PCR...
