Abstract

Neospora caninum infection is an important cause of bovine abortion. The infection can be transmitted transplacentally or by ingestion of oocysts shed by definitive hosts. There are few reports of dogs naturally shedding N. caninum oocysts and only some oocyst isolates were transferred into cell...

Abstract

This study describes transmission experiments using Hammondia heydorni-like oocysts isolated in 1996 from a naturally infected dog. The isolate was designated as H. heydorni-Berlin-1996. Examination of sera from infected intermediate hosts showed immunoblot reactions that resembled patterns...
