Bovine paramphistomes in Ireland.
Paramphistome infections have been associated with significant morbidity, caused chiefly by the activity of juvenile flukes in the intestine of the ruminant final host. Most cases have been reportedExpand

Purification of a cathepsin L-like proteinase secreted by adult Fasciola hepatica.
A cysteine proteinase released in vitro by Fasciola hepatica was purified to homogeneity by Sephacryl S-200 gel filtration chromatography followed by QAE-Sephadex chromatography. The purified enzymeExpand

Understanding triclabendazole resistance.
Triclabendazole (TCBZ) has been the drug of choice to treat liver fluke infections in livestock for >20 years, due to its high activity against both adult and juvenile flukes. More recently, it hasExpand

Multiple origins of European populations of the giant liver fluke Fascioloides magna (Trematoda: Fasciolidae), a liver parasite of ruminants.
The giant liver fluke, Fascioloides magna, a liver parasite of free-living and domestic ruminants of Europe and North America, was analysed in order to determine the origin of European populationsExpand

The distribution of Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica within southern Tanzania--constraints associated with the intermediate host.
In East Africa, Fasciola gigantica is generally the causative agent of fasciolosis but there have been reports of F. hepatica in cattle from highland regions of Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and Zaire. TheExpand

A possible model of benzimidazole binding to beta-tubulin disclosed by invoking an inter-domain movement.
Although it is well established that benzimidazole (BZMs) compounds exert their therapeutic effects through binding to helminth beta-tubulin and thus disrupting microtubule-based processes in theExpand

Population dynamics of the liver fluke, Fasciola hepatica: the effect of time and spatial separation on the genetic diversity of fluke populations in the Netherlands.
An evaluation of the genetic diversity within Fasciola hepatica (liver fluke) may provide an insight into its potential to respond to environmental changes, such as anthelmintic use or climateExpand

Evidence for chronic morbillivirus infection in the Mediterranean striped dolphin (Stenella coeruleoalba).
In the summer of 1990 an epizootic infection caused by a morbillivirus (DMV) killed several thousand striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba) in the Mediterranean Sea. In 1991 and 1992 the epizooticExpand

Comparative proteomic analysis of triclabendazole response in the liver fluke Fasciola hepatica.
Control of Fasciola hepatica infections of livestock in the absence of vaccines depends largely on the chemical triclabendazole (TCBZ) because it is effective against immature and adult parasites.Expand

The comparative metabolism of triclabendazole sulphoxide by triclabendazole-susceptible and triclabendazole-resistant Fasciola hepatica
Benzimidazole anthelmintics are widely used against nematode, cestode and trematode parasites. The drugs undergo several enzyme-mediated reactions within the host animal that produce a number ofExpand
