Cryptosporidium and Giardia in different age groups of Danish cattle and pigs--occurrence and management associated risk factors.
To obtain information both about the prevalence of Giardia and Cryptosporidium in Danish cattle and pigs as well as the possible influence of different management systems on the occurrence andExpand
Molecular and phylogenetic characterization of Cryptosporidium and Giardia from pigs and cattle in Denmark
The genetic diversity of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia duodenalis from dairy cattle and pigs in Denmark was determined in the present study. Faecal samples from 1237 pigs and 1150 cattleExpand
Cryptosporidium andersoni from a Danish cattle herd: identification and preliminary characterisation.
In November 1997, Cryptosporidium andersoni, for the first time, was isolated from a Danish heifer. The isolate was characterised morphologically, molecularly, and furthermore inoculated into miceExpand
Screening for infection of Trichinella in red fox (Vulpes vulpes) in Denmark.
A total of 6141 foxes (Vulpes vulpes) were examined for infection with Trichinella. The foxes were killed in Denmark during the hunting season 1995-1996 and 1997-1998; 3133 and 3008, respectively.Expand
Evaluation of immunofluorescence microscopy and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in detection of Cryptosporidium and Giardia infections in asymptomatic dogs.
The performance of immunofluorescence microscopy (IF) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) in canine feces was evaluated. IF and Cryptosporidium ELISA detected 10(5)oocysts/g, while theExpand
Seasonal prevalence and incidence of Cryptosporidium spp. and Giardia duodenalis and associated diarrhoea in children attending pre-school in Kafue, Zambia.
Prevalence, incidence and seasonal variation of Cryptosporidium and Giardia duodenalis were studied over a 12-month period in 100 children from four pre-schools in Kafue, Zambia. Questionnaire dataExpand
Prevalence, risk factors and spatial analysis of liver fluke infections in Danish cattle herds
BackgroundFasciola hepatica, a trematode parasite (liver fluke), infects a wide range of host species causing fasciolosis. The disease is prevalent world-wide and causes considerable economic lossesExpand
Cryptosporidium parvum: infectivity and pathogenicity of the ‘porcine’ genotype
Genetic studies have demonstrated profound differences between the ‘porcine’ genotype of Cryptosporidium parvum, versus ‘human’ and ‘bovine’ genotypes. The study analysed infectivity andExpand
Towards a standardised surveillance for Trichinella in the European Union.
Each year, more than 167 million pigs in the European Union (EU) are tested for Trichinella spp. under the current meat hygiene regulations. This imposes large economic costs on countries, yet theExpand
