Although several techniques exist for the detection of equine tapeworms in serum and feces, the differential diagnosis of tapeworm infection is usually based on postmortem findings and the morphological identification of eggs in feces. In this study, a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based method for the simultaneuos detection of Anoplocephala magna, Anoplocephala perfoliata and Anoplocephaloides mamillana has been developed and validated. The method simultaneously amplifies… Expand
A new multiplex PCR assay to distinguish among three cryptic Galba species, intermediate hosts of Fasciola hepatica.
A molecular tool described here allows in one step for specific discrimination among three cryptic freshwater snail species (genus Galba) involved in fasciolosis transmission, a worldwide infectiousExpand
Development of a direct PCR assay to detect Taenia multiceps eggs isolated from dog feces.
TLDR
The direct PCR assay developed in the present study has high sensitivity and specificity to identify T. multiceps eggs isolated from dog feces and therefore could represent an invaluable tool to identify the parasite in outbreaks and would contribute to future clinical applications. Expand
Investigations on the occurrence of tapeworm infections in German horse populations with comparison of different antibody detection methods based on saliva and serum samples
TLDR
The findings of the present serological investigation indicate that tapeworm prevalence in Berlin/Brandenburg horse farms is much higher than would be anticipated by using conventional/coproscopic analyses. Expand
Equine tapeworm infections: Disease, diagnosis and control
TLDR
The large body of scientific evidence supports an association between A. perfoliata infection and certain types of equine colic, although some discrepancy exists between studies. Expand
Anoplocephala perfoliata Infection in Horses in Iceland: Investigation of Associations between Intensity of Infection and Lesions
TLDR
The prevalence of A. perfoliata in horses in Iceland in this study was found to be relatively high compared with results from many studies performed elsewhere in Europe, and the high prevalence and association with pathology suggest that diagnosis of infection using a sensitive method, along with appropriate treatment, should be considered for Horses in Iceland.

TLDR
The results of this study support the proposal that A. magna and A. perfoliata are separate species, consistent with previous morphological analyses. Expand
Development of a touch-down multiplex PCR method for simultaneously rapidly detecting three novel insertion/deletions (indels) within one gene: an example for goat GHR gene
TLDR
An economic multiplex PCR method is presented to simultaneously and accurately detect three indel polymorphisms within goat GHR without the use of any special equipment, thus improving the experimental efficiency and fast obtaining the experimental result for indel genotyping. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Anoplocephala perfoliata, the first representative for the family Anoplocephalidae

TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses showed that the Dipylidiidae was more closely related to Anoplocephalidae and Hymenolepididae than to Taeniidae, and analyses on mt genome sequences of the four families of cestodes provide novel insights into their phylogenetic relationships. Expand
Parasite control on thoroughbred studs
TLDR
Analyzing more than 2500 fecal samples from 303 horses has clearly shown the existence of a repeatability of fecal egg counts (FEC) over time by the identification of so-called high and low egg-shedders, which supports the idea that FECs can be used as a solid basis for resulting treatment decisions in adult horses.

Amplification of ribosomal DNA of Anoplocephalidae: Anoplocephala perfoliata diagnosis by PCR as a possible alternative to coprological methods.
TLDR
First efforts on the practical application of the PCR-based approach were made, with good results on the detection of genomic DNA as low as 0.5 pgs in Anoplocephala perfoliata and A. mamillana. Expand
PCR-based species-specific amplification of ITS of Mecistocirrus digitatus and its application in identification of GI nematode eggs in bovine faeces.
TLDR
The sequence of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of its ribosomal DNA (rDNA) is determined and primers for PCR-based species-specific amplification of the ITS to differentiate between M. digitatus and other common gastrointestinal (GI) nematode species are designed. Expand
Evaluation of diagnostic techniques for Anoplocephala perfoliata in horses from Alberta, Canada.
TLDR
The coproantigen ELISA may have the potential as a diagnostic tool for determining the presence and intensity of this potentially pathogenic cestode in horses. Expand
PCR assay for the specific amplification of Oesophagostomum bifurcum DNA from human faeces.
TLDR
This work has established a two-step, semi-nested PCR method for the specific amplification of minute amounts of O. bifurcum DNA from human faecal samples, and achieved a sensitivity of 94.6% and a specificity of 100%. Expand
Differential diagnosis of equine cestodosis based on E/S and somatic Anoplocephala perfoliata and Anoplocephala magna antigens.
TLDR
Cross-reactivity of these unpurified antigenic components is demonstrated, precluding their use in differential diagnosis between A. perfoliata and A. magna, the most common intestinal tapeworm of horses worldwide. Expand
A comparison of coprological, serological and molecular methods for the diagnosis of horse infection with Anoplocephala perfoliata (Cestoda, Cyclophyllidea).
TLDR
The results of the present work indicate that the nested PCR assay represents a valid method for the specific molecular detection of A.perfoliata in faecal samples collected from naturally infected horses and may have advantages over coprological and serological approaches for diagnosing A. per foliata infection. Expand
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the detection of antibodies to Anoplocephala perfoliata in horse sera.
TLDR
It is indicated that transmission of A. perfoliata in Central Sweden occurred during a short period in spring and more consistently in late autumn and a significant seasonal pattern in antibody levels was observed which reflected the establishment of newly acquired infections. Expand
Comparison of the sensitivity of coprological methods in detecting Anoplocephala perfoliata invasions
TLDR
Sedimentation–flotation techniques proved to be more sensitive than other one and the lowest intensity of invasion possible to detect was nine tapeworms with gravid proglottid. Expand
Use of excretory/secretory antigens for the serodiagnosis of Anoplocephala perfoliata cestodosis.
TLDR
E/S antigen gave the best differentiation between sera from tapew Worm-positive and tapeworm-negative horses, and was optimised and validated against seras from horses of known tapew worm status. Expand
Coprologically diagnosing Anoplocephala perfoliata in the presence of A. magna.
TLDR
In the present study, coprology was significantly more sensitive at detecting A. magna than A. perfoliata when testing was limited to horses with mature or gravid tapeworms and the use of these two morphometric variables would therefore be useful for the copro-identification of A. each other in countries where both species coexist.
