Abstract

During the last decade an increasing number of so-called "cysticercosis storms" in cattle have been reported in Denmark. This review focusses on the epidemiological background to this and discusses some developments at the farm level which may have led to changes in transmission routes and risks....

Abstract

The serum IgG response of cattle with cysticercosis caused by Taenia saginata was studied in an ELISA in which a T. saginata metacestode surface extract was used as antigen. In experimentally infected calves, a sharp rise in specific antibody levels was found 3-4 weeks after the infection followed...

Abstract

Epidemiological studies were made on 14 farms from which, during a 2-year period, 38 cattle had been condemned at slaughter, because of massive infections with Cysticercus bovis. By on-site investigations and interviews, attempts were made to identify the transmission routes of Taenia saginata eggs ...
