Abstract

Bovine cysticercosis increased in Slovakia between 1981 and 1986, while human infestation with Taenia saginata allegedly decreased. Throughout the country 2567 bovine carcasses contained cysticerci in 1981, and 4583 were positive in 1986. The number of farms from which infested carcasses came also...

Abstract

High rates of C. bovis infection in young beef cattle in parts of Czechoslovakia around 1980 has led to this study project of the conditions responsible for pasture contamination and of the detectability of infection in small herds, including ELISA testing and meat inspection. The control of C....

Abstract

Examination at necropsy of 269 bulls on a farm revealed 65 (24.2%) animals harbouring bovine cysticerci. CIEP using homologous antigen from Taenia saginata adults showed 44.8% sensitivity and 86.4% specificity. Heterologous antigen from Taenia crassiceps cysticerci gave 28.3% sensitivity and 89.9%...

A severe outbreak of bovine cysticerciasis in a fattening unit of the Šumava industrial cattle farm, Czechoslovakia, in 1983-1984 was traced to 3 workers connected with the farm. Their recent medical history and their toilet habits, which were in part responsible for contamination of the animal...

Abstract

The detection and control of cysticerciasis on a large cattle farm in Czechoslovakia are discussed. ELISA detected 15.3% more cases than did the standard faecal tests. Infection rates in bullocks were consequently reduced from 26.4% in 1980 to 10.6% in 1983.

Abstract

For Czechoslovakia as a whole, the average prevalence rates for 1976 to 1985 were 1.6 to 1.8% for C. bovis and 0.001 to 0.015% (sporadic) for unilocular hydatid in cattle. The rates for unilocular hydatid in sheep were 0.2 to 0.6% and in pigs 0.001-0.014%. Epizootiological aspects are briefly...
