Abstract

This study investigated interactions among Fasciola gigantica, Schistosoma spp. and Amphistomum spp. concurrent natural infections in Zambian cattle, based on egg and worm counts. In the abattoir 315 cattle were screened for worms of F. gigantica in the liver, Schistosoma spp. in mesenteric veins...

Abstract

A total of 358 cattle was examined for schistosome infection in Zambian slaughterhouses. A total of 542 worms collected from 104 infected individuals was examined for glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase and phosphoglucomutase using isoelectric focusing. The overall prevalence of infection was 51%....

Abstract

The transmission and interaction of schistosomes in the Senegal River Basin in Mali and Zambia are reviewed and some preliminary field data are presented. In the Senegal River Basin 4 species of schistosomes are prevalent: Schistosoma mansoni, S. haematobium, S. bovis and S. curassoni as well as...

Abstract

The potential of a recombinant Schistosoma bovis-derived glutathione S-transferase [glutathione transferase] (rSb28GST) to protect calves against S. mattheei infection was tested in Zambia. All animals were challenged 2 weeks after the second inoculation with either 0.250 mg rSb28GST in adjuvants...

Abstract

Levels of 2 Schistosoma circulating antigens, circulating anodic antigen (CAA) and circulating cathodic antigen (CCA), were determined in serum samples collected on a monthly basis over a period of 1.5 years from 32 Zambian farm cattle of different ages and from 12 tracer calves exposed to ...

Abstract

Although the epitheliochorial placenta of ruminants does not allow passage of immunoglobulins from dam to fetus specific antibodies have been detected at birth in calves born to Schistosoma mattheei-infected cows. The present study determined the prevalence of calves born with specific antibodies...

Abstract

The Schistosoma mattheei egg output was monitored in 31 cattle over a 18-month period on a dairy farm near Lusaka, Zambia. The animals were kept on pasture with free access to two streams which were suitable for the intermediate host, Bulinus globosus. Individual faecal egg excretion reached an...

Abstract

The evolution of faecal egg output, worm burdens and tissue egg counts in young calves was monitored during the first year of natural exposure to Schistosoma mattheei infection on a Zambian farm. According to the duration of their stay on the farm, these calves were classified into 2 groups of 14...

Abstract

At the abattoir in Tambacounda, Senegal, Schistosoma spp. were recovered from 19 of 46 cattle. One of the animals was infected with S. bovis, the other 18 had S. curassoni. 2 animals had worms thought to be hybrids of S. bovis and S. curassoni. Of 11 sheep and 12 goats only 1 goat was infected with ...

Abstract

Surveys of 332 naturally infected bovines at 8 abattoirs in Senegal, Gambia and Mali were carried out to determine the prevalence of infection with S. bovis and S. curassoni, and to pinpoint areas where the distribution of the species overlap. S. bovis was the commonest schistosome of cattle in...
