Biology of Nanophyetus salmincola and "salmon poisoning" disease.
TLDR
The chapter reviews several aspects of SPD and various sulfanilamides given orally or parenterally have been successful in the treatment. Expand
Distribution of potential intermediate hosts for Fasciola hepatica and Fascioloides magna in Montana, USA.
TLDR
A collection of lymnaeid snails in Montana was made over a 3 year period, in conjunction with a state-wide survey of the distribution of liver flukes, finding the two snail species most widely distributed over the areas enzootic for the flukes. Expand
Detection of Fasciola hepatica in infected intermediate hosts using RT-PCR.
TLDR
A fasciolid-specific assay has been developed to detect infected snail vectors and detects individual infected snails immediately after miracidial exposure and throughout the parasite's development period. Expand
A nucleic acid-based test for detection of Fasciola hepatica.
TLDR
An oligonucleotide probe derived from a rRNA sequence was developed for the detection of Fasciola hepatica in its intermediate snail host Pseudosuccinea columella and it was determined that RNA derived from 5 miracidia can be detected with CS4. Expand
Myxobolus cerebralis in Tubifex tubifex from a whirling disease epizootic in Montana.
TLDR
Aquatic oligochaetes from a whirling disease enzootic area in southwest Montana were examined for infection with Myxobolus cerebralis and two were identified as mature Tubifex tubifex but were immature and lacking the diagnostic reproductive structures, the first report of T.tubifex naturally infected with M. cerebralis.

Enteric coccidia of Cashmere goats in southwestern Montana, USA.
A survey of enteric coccidia was made in a Cashmere goat herd in Montana, USA. Eimerian oocysts were found in 97.2% of 616 fecal samples. Newly weaned wethers and does had higher oocyst counts thanExpand
"Salmon poisoning" disease. 3. Effect of experimental Nanophyetus salmincola infection on the fish host.
TLDR
The effect of experimental infection with the "salmon poisoning" fluke, Nanophyetus salmincola, on five species, including three subspecies, of salmonid fish was studied and it was concluded that the parasite is pathogenic. Expand
RELATIONSHIP OF DIFFERENT SPECIES OF FORAGE TO THE SURVIVAL AND INFECTIVITY OF HAEMONCHUS CONTORTUS IN LAMBS.

  • The Journal of parasitology
  • 1 February 1964
TLDR
Results suggest that greater numbers of third-stage H. contortus larvae will overwinter and retain their infectivity if they are on forage species which have heavy dense growth characteristics rather than on forages which have an open, sparse type of growth. Expand
HELMINTHS AND ARTHROPODS OF BLACK AND WHITE RHINOCEROSES IN SOUTHERN AFRICA
TLDR
A recently described nematode, Diceronema versterae, was found in the stomach of one animal and Draschia megastoma was present in the descending colon of the same animal, but it was twice the size of similar specimens reported from equids and the typical granulomatous lesions caused by this nematodes in horses were not observed.
