abstract:  The purpose of the present study was to obtain seroepidemiological information on the Neospora caninum infection status of sheep and goats in different areas of Punjab Province and Azad Kashmir (Pakistan). A cross-sectional study, with the use of a competitive ELISA, showed an overall 27.7% (35 of 128) (95% confidence interval [CI] ± 7.7%) and 8.6% (13 of 142) (95% CI ± 4.6%) seroprevalence of N. caninum antibodies in sheep and goats, respectively. The difference in seroprevalence… Expand
The first report of Neospora caninum prevalence in aborted and healthy sheep from west of Iran
TLDR
The present study is the first report on the seroprevalence of N. caninum in sheep from west of Iran and shows that infection by N.Caninum parasites is not responsible for ovine abortion from Zagros mountain area of Iran. Expand
Detection of Anti-Neospora caninum Antibodies in a Goat Flock in Kilis Province of Turkey
Neospora caninum is a significant agent causing abortion in cattle. There are many studies about cattle neosporosis due to its economic impact; however, the number of studies on neosporosis in goatsExpand

TLDR
This study aimed to determine the frequency of antibodies to Neospora caninum in domestic sheep raised in Henan province, central China, and found an overall IgG positive rate of 7.32% (57/779). Expand
Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum seroprevalence in dairy sheep and goats mixed stock farming
TLDR
Goats had higher Toxoplasma seroprevalence than sheep and N. caninum among flocks of small ruminants in Greece and any prevalence difference between sheep and goats kept in mixed flocks was evaluated. Expand

Seroprevalence and risk factors of Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum infections in small ruminants in China.
TLDR
The results of the present survey indicate that T. gondii and N. caninum infections are highly prevalent in sheep and goats in Qinghai province, China, and for the first time that antibodies to N.Caninum have been detected in livestock in China. Expand
Neospora caninum infection in sheep and goats from north-eastern Italy and associated risk factors
TLDR
Outcomes from the survey mainly indicate that small, family-run farms were at higher risk rather than intensive caprine farms or transhumant sheep flocks and should implement their care about proper sanitary measures and monitor the spread of the infection among small ruminants. Expand
