Abstract

The study investigated whether the susceptibility of calves to an early Schistosoma mattheei infection may be modified by intake of colostrum from infected cows. Twelve calves born to non-infected mothers were randomly divided into 2 groups of 6. The animals from group 1 were fed colostrum...

Abstract

The potential of a recombinant Schistosoma bovis 28-kDa glutathione S-transferase (rSb28GST) to protect cattle against Fasciola hepatica was tested in a vaccination trial. Thirty-two calves were randomly divided into four groups of eight animals. Calves of the three vaccine groups received two...

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 present paper reviews the available literature on the development of immunity to animal Schistosoma infections. The majority of the studies on animal schistosomiasis were performed in cattle and pigs and only Schistosoma mattheei, S. bovis and S. japonicum received particular attention, mainly...

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

Sera from calves vaccinated with the recombinant Schistosoma bovis-derived 28-kDa glutathione S-transferase (28GST) and subsequently naturally or experimentally exposed to S. mattheei were studied for their content of specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgA antibodies to recombinant S. bovis 28GST, ...

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.
(1) Snails...
