This experimental study was conducted to test whether cerebral and non-cerebral forms of Coenurus cerebralis belong to one origin or they are originated from two different tape worms. In the first step of the study, two groups of dogs were orally infected with the protoscoleces of cerebral and non-cerebral cysts and four months after infection, the adult(More)
Neospora caninum, an apicomplexan protozoan parasite, is recognized as a major cause of abortion in cattle. However, limited information is presently available on the seroprevalence of Neospora antibodies in horses worldwide. The aim of the present study is to determine serological prevalence of Neospora infection in horses in Iran. Blood samples (More)
Coenurosis is a debilitating disease caused by the larval stage of Taenia multiceps. The larval stage of T. multiceps appears in two cerebral and non-cerebral forms known as Coenurus cerebralis and Coenurus gaigeri,respectively. This leads to the hypothesis that there are genetic intraspecific variabilities within this species. Molecular analysis in the(More)
Sheep and goats serve as intermediate hosts for the canine tapeworm Taenia multiceps. The cysts produced by the intermediate stage of parasite are usually found in the cerebral hemispheres of small ruminants, and the resulting disease is commonly known as coenurosis. Coenurosis is clinically manifested in the form of various nervous symptoms, depending on(More)
Bluetongue virus (BTV) is the prototype of the genus Orbivirus, family Reoviridae. Bluetongue (BT) occurs throughout the temperate and tropical regions of the world, in an area that parallels the distribution of the competent vector, Culicoides spp. There is considerable genetic variability within the serogroup of BTV so that 26 serotypes have been(More)
