Administered preventively to sheep, rSb28GST--the only molecule cloned from S. bovis which has demonstrated vaccine potentialities in goats and cattle--reduced the mean worm burden in vaccinated animals and improved their health status compared with that of non-vaccinated controls. As in goats, but not in bovines, the fecundity of the settled worm pairs was not… CONTINUE READING
