An analytical cross-sectional study of Capillaria hepatica in 307 Norway (brown) rats (Rattus norvegicus) was performed. Rats were trapped in two rural regions in Croatia. The prevalence of adult C. hepatica was 1.95%. The parasite was observed in 6 rats. Of these, 3 out of 189 (1.59%) were male and 3 out of 118 (2.54%) female. The adult parasite was a more… (More)
The potential role of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (i-IELs) in the generation of host protective immunity after helminth infection was investigated using the Trichinella spiralis (Owen, 1835)/mouse model. In this study we found a significant rise of TCRgamma(delta)+ i-IELs (P < 0.001) concurrent with the jejunal goblet cells (GC) hyperplasia in T.… (More)

Indirect ELISA and Western blotting as tools to diagnose fascioloidosis in a population of free-ranging red deer (Cervus elaphus). ABSTRACT The aim of this research was to investigate the use of an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western blotting test with native excretory/secretory Fascioloides magna antigen (ES-Ag) in free-ranging… (More)
After the large American liver fluke (Fascioloides magna) was detected in Croatia for the first time in 2000, treatment of fascioloidosis was conducted in the free-ranging population over a period of three years (from 2001 to 2003) and in captive red deer during the winter seson of 2002. The free-ranging red deer population was treated with a mixture of… (More)
