Survey of anthelmintic resistance on Danish horse farms, using 5 different methods of calculating faecal egg count reduction.
Of 5 methods used for the calculation of faecal egg count reduction (FECR), the method recommended by the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology, for the detection of resistance in sheep was the most sensitive procedure for detecting resistance. Expand
Screening for infection of Trichinella in red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Denmark.
The results indicate that the prevalence of infection of Trichinella sp. Expand
A comparison of in vitro tests and a faecal egg count reduction test in detecting anthelmintic resistance in horse strongyles.
Comparisons between faecal egg count reduction test, egg hatch assay (EHA), and larval development assay (LDA) for detecting anthelmintic resistance in equine strongyles found correlations between the tests were poor and it was not possible to use the outcome of one test to predict the outcomes of another.

Resistance to levamisole resolved at the single‐channel level
Resistance to levamisole was produced by changes in the averaged properties of the levam isole receptor population, with some receptors from sensitive and resistant isolates having indistinguishable characteristics. Expand
Target sites of anthelmintics.
This paper reviews sites of action of anthelmintic drugs including levamisole and pyrantel, which act as agonists at nicotinic acetylcholine receptors of nematodes and diethylcarbamazine, which appears to interfere with arachidonic acid metabolism of filarial parasites and host. Expand
Effect of papaya latex against Ascaris suum in naturally infected pigs.
An experiment was carried out to investigate the anthelmintic activity of papaya latex against natural infection of Ascaris suum in pigs, and some of the pigs receiving the highest dose of the latex showed mild diarrhoea on the day following treatment. Expand
A survey of anthelmintic resistance in nematode parasites of goats in Denmark.
There were disagreements in the declaration of resistance between methods of calculating faecal egg count reduction percentage (FECR%) based on the arithmetic mean and those where geometric mean EPG is used, and inclusion of pre-treatment EPG or control group EPG in the calculation of FECR% influenced declaration of Resistance.

A questionnaire survey on nematode control practices on horse farms in Denmark and the existence of risk factors for the development of anthelmintic resistance.
A questionnaire survey to obtain information on endoparasite control practices and management on 68 Danish horse farms was undertaken in 1995. The study revealed that foals, young horses and adultsExpand
Growth rate and trapping efficacy of nematode-trapping fungi under constant and fluctuating temperatures
The general reduction observed in the number of nematode larvae due to fungal trapping was 18–25% and 48–80% for a constant and fluctuating 10 °C, 70–96% and 93–95% for an constant and a fluctuating 15  °C, and 63–98% and 0–25%, respectively. Expand
The effects of body composition on the pharmacokinetics of subcutaneously injected ivermectin and moxidectin in pigs.
Body condition influenced the kinetic disposition of IVM and MXD following s.c. drug administration with both drugs being less persistent in thin compared with fat animals. Expand
