Transcriptomic analysis of circulating leukocytes reveals novel aspects of the host systemic inflammatory response to sheep scab mites
(Public Library of Science, 2012-08-03)
Infestation of ovine skin with the ectoparasitic mite Psoroptes ovis results in the development of a rapid cutaneous inflammatory response, leading to the crusted skin lesions characteristic of sheep scab. To facilitate ...
Immune development and performance characteristics of Romney sheep selected for either resistance or resilience to gastrointestinal nematodes
(Elsevier on behalf of American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC) and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2018-01-30)
Immunological and performance characteristics were explored in Romney sheep from lines selected for either resistance or resilience to parasite infection. At a mean 78 days-of-age, twin lambs from a line selected for ...
Direct anthelmintic and immunostimulatory effects of oral dosing semi-purified phytohaemagglutinin lectin in sheep infected with Teladorsagia circumcincta and Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Elsevier B.V. on behalf of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), the European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC), and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2012-06-08)
Lectins are plant secondary compounds that can have anthelmintic properties in vitro. In particular, the phytohaemagglutinin lectin extracted from Phaseolus vulgaris has been shown to inhibit the feeding of Trichostrongylus ...
Protection of ewes against Teladorsagia circumcincta infection in the periparturient period by vaccination with recombinant antigens
Teladorsagiosis is a major production-limiting disease in ruminants in temperate regions throughout the world and one of the key interventions in the management of the disease is the prevention of pasture contamination ...
Refugia-based strategies for parasite control in livestock
Key points: Refugia-based strategies are intended to help slow the development of anthelmintic resistance by leaving a population unexposed to a treatment. Refugia can be supplied in several forms and through a variety of ...
Comparison of the timing of development of immunity in Romney lambs from resistant and resilient selection lines
(Elsevier on behalf of the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP), European Veterinary Parasitology College (EVPC), and the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP), 2019-06)
Variation in the timing of development of immunity to gastro-intestinal nematode parasites was assessed in resistant and resilient Romney selection lines exposed to mixed natural infection. From weaning, at mean 92 ...
