  • Abstract. In a previous paper we demonstrated that Hammondia heydorni-like oocysts isolated in 1996 from a naturally infected dog could not be distinguished from the isolate Neospora caninum NC-1. The isolate, designated as H. heydorni-Berlin-1996, was cyclically transmitted using dogs as the final hosts. The present study provides information on the antibody responses of the dogs used for the cyclical transmission of this isolate. The majority of dogs that had shed oocysts showed no sero… CONTINUE READING
