In a replicated trial, parasitological and antibody responses of grazing weaner Merino sheep were assessed following vaccination with gut membrane proteins prepared from adult worms of the gastrointestinal nematode, Haemonchus contortus. Each vaccinated animal received 100 microg native H11 and 100 microg native H-gal-GP combined together in 5mg Quil A(More)
The negative effects of nematodes in small ruminants can be reduced by use of dewormers but their effectiveness is increasingly limited by the emergence of anthelmintic resistance. The efficacy of benzimidazole (BZ) anthelmintics in the Philippines was estimated by an in vitro larval development assay using worm eggs recovered from faeces collected from(More)
Resistance to the benzimidazole (BZ) anthelmintics is inherited as an incomplete dominant/ incomplete recessive trait and is now widespread in populations of gastrointestinal nematode parasites of sheep. Unlike benzimidazole resistance, which is common in Haemonchus contortus, Trichostrongylus colubriformis and Ostertagia circumcincta, resistance to(More)
The effect of infection of sheep with the gastrointestinal nematode parasite Trichostrongylus colubriformis on expression of adhesion molecules CD11a, CD11b, CD11c, CD18, CD44, CD49d and CD62L by peripheral blood eosinophils was examined by flow cytometry. Initially, to establish the sensitivity of adhesion molecules to inflammatory signals, eosinophil-rich(More)
The in vivo effect of dosing levamisole as a pulse release within an ivermectin (IVM) controlled-release device (CRD) was simulated by periodic dosing of levamisole to Haemonchus contortus-infected sheep already treated with an IVM CRD. The rationale for this treatment combination arises from the need to find alternative approaches to the treatment of(More)
