The prevalence of Neospora caninum and co-infection with Toxoplasma gondii by PCR analysis in naturally occurring mammal populations.
Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii are closely related intracellular protozoan parasites associated with bovine and ovine abortion respectively. Little is known about the extent ofExpand

Detection of high levels of congenital transmission of Toxoplasma gondii in natural urban populations of Mus domesticus.
The relative importance of different transmission routes of Toxoplasma gondii has been a matter for debate. This ubiquitous parasite is generally thought to be transmitted by infective oocystsExpand

A PCR based assay for detection and differentiation of African trypanosome species in blood.
Direct PCR analysis of trypanosome infected blood samples in the quantities required for large scale epidemiological study has always been problematic. Current methods for identifying andExpand

Toxoplasma gondii infection in pregnant women in China.
Toxoplasmosis, caused by the protozoan parasite Toxoplasma gondii, is one of the most common parasitic infections in humans. Primary infection in pregnant women can be transmitted to the fetusExpand

Prevalence of zoonotic important parasites in the red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Great Britain.
A national necropsy survey of red foxes was carried out across Great Britain to record Echinococcus, Trichinella and Toxoplasma. The survey did not record directly, or indirectly usingExpand

Evidence that the mechanism of gene exchange in Trypanosoma brucei involves meiosis and syngamy.
All pairwise combinations of three cloned stocks of Trypanosoma brucei (STIB 247L, STIB 386AA and TREU 927/4) were co-transmitted through tsetse flies (Glossina morsitans) and screened for theExpand

The identification of Trypanosoma brucei subspecies using repetitive DNA sequences.
We describe the use of repetitive DNA probes to characterise the relationships between different stocks of African trypanosomes representing the subspecies of Trypanosoma brucei. Probes derived fromExpand

Evidence for high levels of vertical transmission in Toxoplasma gondii.
Toxoplasma gondii is a highly ubiquitous and prevalent parasite. Despite the cat being the only definitive host, it is found in almost all geographical areas and warm blooded animals. Three routes ofExpand

Generation of a mosaic pattern of diversity in the major merozoite-piroplasm surface antigen of Theileria annulata.
The polypeptide Tams1 is an immunodominant major merozoite piroplasm surface antigen of the protozoan parasite Theileria annulata. Generation and selection of divergent antigenic types hasExpand
