Neospora caninum is a tissue-cyst forming parasite that has been recognized worldwide as a cause of abortion in cattle. Despite the ubiquitous distribution of this parasite and its broad range of hosts, the number of N. caninum isolates obtained to date is limited. In addition, the majority of isolates have been obtained from clinically affected hosts, therefore potentially biasing this population towards more virulent isolates. This report describes the isolation and biological… CONTINUE READING
