Abstract

Traditional methods for the diagnosis of parasitic helminth infections of livestock have a number of limitations, such as the inability to distinguish mixed-species infections, a heavy reliance on technical experience and also sub-sampling errors. Some of these limitations may be overcome through...

Abstract

A pilot series of experiments was conducted in which cattle, sheep and goats were infected with sporozoites of a single stock of each of Theileria annulata and T. lestoquardi (syn T. hirci) from a laboratory colony of Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum. Reciprocal cross-immunity and serological studies ...

Abstract

The development of a polymerase chain reaction using specific primers which amplify, only in Theileria lestoquardi (= T. hirci)-infected Hyalomma, a 785 bp fragment of the gene that codes for a 30 kDa merozoite surface protein is described. The sensitivity of this test and its application to the...

Abstract

Blagg's method, Willis' salt flotation, McMaster's and direct examination using Lugol solution were compared for their efficiency in detecting Giardia in faeces. Blagg's method performed best, identifying Giardia in 50% of 200 goats, 20% of 47 sheep and 5% of 40 calves tested. Lugol solution tested ...

Abstract

Post-mortem worm counts, plasma pepsinogen analyses and faecal egg counts as aids to the diagnosis of gastro-intestinal helminthiasis in sheep and cattle are briefly reviewed. Experiments showed a good correlation between individual egg and worm counts in young sheep (up to 12 months old) but not...

Abstract

Deficiencies in current methods of interpreting faecal egg counts are discussed and a new approach which is simpler and more objective is described. The likely strongyle worm count profile of a flock can be provided by the collection of numerically adequate and fully representative samples;...

Abstract

Experimental infections of sheep showed that Haemonchus contortus caused increased levels of pepsinogen. The increase occurred earlier than in Ostertagia circumcincta infections. Experiments with naturally infected sheep have shown a direct relationship between the number of worms in the abomasum...
