Abstract

Giardia duodenalis causes diarrhoea in humans and a wide range of mammals, including cattle. In cattle, the infection often has a chronic character. Infected calves may excrete cysts for several months, suggesting that Giardia is able to suppress and evade the immune response. In this study six...

Abstract

Recently we reported the successful vaccination of calves against Cooperia oncophora with a double domain activation-associated secreted protein, purified from the excretory-secretory material of adult stage parasites. In an attempt to elucidate the immune mechanisms involved in protection, the...

Abstract

The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the accuracy of the faecal egg count reduction test (FECRT) to assess the resistance status of ivermectin (IVM)-resistant isolates of the cattle nematodes Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora, using the controlled efficacy test (worm...

Abstract

Giardia and Cryptosporidium are important causes of diarrhoea in Bangladesh. The high prevalence of both parasites in humans and cattle in rural Bangladesh and the common use of water ponds by village inhabitants and their animals suggest a potential for zoonotic transmission. Direct transmission...

Abstract

The present study aimed to obtain data on the occurrence of Giardia duodenalis in calves in four major cattle rearing countries in Europe (Germany, UK, France and Italy), along with genotyping data and risk factors associated with these infections. A total of 2072 calves were sampled on 207 farms....

Abstract

Predictive models of parasite life cycles increase our understanding of how parasite epidemiology is influenced by global changes and can be used to support decisions for more targeted worm control. Estimates of parasite population dynamics are needed to parameterize such models. The aim of this...

Abstract

With the increasing incidence of anthelmintic resistance worldwide, immunological control of worm infections through vaccination is often put forward as a rational and cost-effective alternative for anthelmintic drugs. In this study we report on the evaluation of a double-domain...

Abstract

Development of immunity to Ostertagia ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora and interactions between both species in primed calves were investigated after homologous, heterologous and concurrent challenge infections. Worm counts, faecal egg output, IgG1 and IgG2 antibodies and the presence of globule...

Abstract

Ostertagia ostertagi adult worm extracts were analysed by Western blotting using sera from calves experimentally infected with O. ostertagi and Cooperia oncophora. Strong differences in antigen recognition were noticed, even between animals from the same group. Two Ostertagia specific antigens with ...

Abstract

The inverse relationship between the intensive use of modern anthelmintics and the build up of immunity to gastrointestinal nematodes in cattle is discussed. Manifestations of immunity, humoral reactions, cell-mediated reactions, control, and chemoprophylaxis and immunity are discussed. It is...
