Equine tapeworm infections: Disease, diagnosis and control

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.

Anoplocephala perfoliata Infection in Horses in Iceland: Investigation of Associations between Intensity of Infection and Lesions

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.

The results of this study support the proposal that A. magna and A. perfoliata are separate species, consistent with previous morphological analyses.

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

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.

Investigations on the occurrence of tapeworm infections in German horse populations with comparison of different antibody detection methods based on saliva and serum samples

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.



PCR-based species-specific amplification of ITS of Mecistocirrus digitatus and its application in identification of GI nematode eggs in bovine faeces.

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.

PCR assay for the specific amplification of Oesophagostomum bifurcum DNA from human faeces.
