Abstract

Fasciola hepatica is a pathogenic trematode parasite of ruminants with a global distribution. Here, we briefly review the current epidemiology of bovine fasciolosis in Europe and discuss the progress made over the last decade in the diagnosis, impact on production and prediction of F. hepatica in ...

Abstract

During 1988 and 1989, the mesenteric veins of 901 cattle were examined for the presence of schistosomes at the Kandy slaughterhouse (Sri Lanka). 281 were infected, giving an overall prevalence of infection of 31.2%. The rate of infection in animals younger than 2 years was less (21.3%) than in...

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

S. nasale was detected in 12.6% of 1393 cattle slaughtered in Kandy, Sri Lanka, between January and December 1987. The prevalence was significantly lower in March (3%) than in other months (10-17%). The prevalence of infection, number of lesions and severity of lesions increased with increasing age ...

Abstract

From 2 farms near Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, 7 of 10 European cross-bred cows naturally infected with S. nasale were treated orally with praziquantel powder suspended in water at 20 mg/kg body weight; 3 were untreated controls. Lesion scores, and numbers of miracidia and eggs in 1 ml nasal secretion,...

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

Infectivity and cercarial production of I. exustus related to variation of miracidial dose (1, 4, 10 or 20) of S. nasale and S. spindale from Sri Lanka were studied. The intermediate host-parasite relationships of the 2 schistosome species showed marked differences under the conditions of...

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...

Abstract

Human and cattle schistosomiasis occurs in Senegal and 4 aetiological species have been noted: Schistosoma haematobium, S. mansoni, S. bovis and S. curassoni. This paper reports 4 surveys investigating the distribution of the parasites and of their intermediate snail hosts in that area.
