Abstract

The incidence of Taenia saginata in cattle in Czechoslovakia ranged from 1.61 to 1.81% from 1977-1984 and the incidence in individual districts ranged from 0.6 to 3.77%. Cysticerci were found in slaughtered cattle in 67.7% of cattle farms and 48.1% of stables. The incidence of Echinococcus...

Abstract

The Wielkopolska region of Poland and in particular land belts along the Warta river in the Poznań area and the Prosna river in the Kalisz area were examined during 5 years for cysticerciasis in cattle and for soil contamination in relation to human activity. Cysticerciasis was recorded in 57.6% of ...

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%...

Abstract

The diagnostic value of intradermal tests in pre-mortem diagnosis of bovine cysticercosis was evaluated using 126 bulls, 32 of which were positive at necropsy. Homologous antigens from Taenia saginata adults, heterologous antigens from T. crassiceps larvae and hydatid fluid from Echinococcus...

Abstract

Taenia saginata antigens partially purified by defatting with n-hexane (TS-NH) or by ammonium sulphate (TS-SA) were compared with the crude antigen (TS-5) in the ELISA, using infected bovine sera. The crude serum proved the most active; the relationship between measured values in positive and...

Abstract

762 (0.45%) of 167 331 cattle examined between 1979 and 1983 at a slaughterhouse in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, were found infected with Taenia saginata metacestodes. In accordance with regulations, the masseters, tongue and heart were examined. Infections were highest in November (0.76%) and June...

Abstract

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

An ELISA using antigen prepared from lyophilized cysticerci of Taenia saginata was evaluated in 14 two-month-old calves infected with 5000 T. saginata eggs, and in 236 cattle. A positive response to the test was first registered on days 20 to 40 of infection in the calves. Titres increased steadily ...
