The influence of host and parasite-related factors on the strongyle infection in 50 horses coming from 6 European countries and slaughtered in Italy for meat production was investigated using a multivariable modelling approach. The study was carried out by examining adult helminths, faecal eggs (identified by culture to the third larval stage) and mucosal larval stages of Cyathostominae. A modified Transmural Illumination technique (TMI) has been performed and Cyathostominae empty mucosal cysts… Expand
Strongyle infections and parasitic control strategies in German horses ― a risk assessment
TLDR
S. vulgaris seems to be rare in Germany and no difference in its frequency has yet been found between selectively treated horses and horses receiving treatment in strategic intervals, however, inconsistent parasite control has been observed. Expand
Immune and parasitological response in horses infected with gastrointestinal nematodes in the humid tropic of Mexico
The objective of the study was to determine the parasitological and immune response in horses naturally re-infected with gastrointestinal nematodes (GIN) after an- thelmintic treatment in the humidExpand
Are small strongyles (Cyathostominae) involved in horse colic occurrence?
TLDR
It is possible that the presence of adult luminal parasites, would have a protective effect against the pathogenic action exerted by the development and emergence of small strongyles larvae from intestinal mucosa; the management practices able to reduce the risk of colics are the same that cause higher exposure to strongyle infective larvae.

The prevalence, abundance and distribution of cyathostomins (small stongyles) in horses from Western Romania.
TLDR
The cluster analysis of the Cyathostominae community composition showed a major cluster composed of the three dominant species, followed by a cluster composed by Coronocyclus coronatus, while all the other species presented a tree like structure. Expand

Host social rank and parasites: plains zebra (Equus quagga) and intestinal helminths in Uganda.
TLDR
Evidence that social status influences parasite level with dominant zebras shedding less parasite eggs than subordinate ones is found and social rank appears, therefore, as an important factor giving rise to parasite aggregation in plain zebra. Expand
Species composition of larvae cultured after anthelmintic treatment indicates reduced moxidectin susceptibility of immature Cylicocyclus species in horses.
TLDR
In conclusion, shortening of the ERP following MOX treatment is most likely a process in which an increasing number of immature worms from an increase number of species is becoming less susceptible to the active compound. Expand
Einfluss von Entwurmungsmethoden auf die Strongylidenpopulation bei Pferden in Deutschland
TLDR
S. vulgaris seems to be rare in Germany and no difference in its frequency has yet been found between selectively treated horses and horses receiving treatment in strategic intervals, however, inconsistent parasite control has been observed. Expand

In developing countries, most equines dedicated to pulling carts citywide are the property of poor people whose subsistence is derived from the daily work activity with these animals. This situationExpand

Intrinsic Factors Influencing the Infection by Helminth Parasites in Horses under an Oceanic Climate Area (NW Spain)
TLDR
It is concluded that the infections by helminths, especially the strongyloids, are significantly common in the region, so that greater importance should be given to this situation. Expand
Probable reason why small strongyle EPG counts are returning “early” after ivermectin treatment of horses on a farm in Central Kentucky
TLDR
Critical tests were carried out in 2008 in four yearling horses born and raised together on a farm in Central Kentucky to try and determine more precisely, from posttreatment (PT) worm count data, the current activity of ivermectin against small strongyles in a horse herd. Expand
Mast cell and eosinophil mucosal responses in the large intestine of horses naturally infected with cyathostomes.
TLDR
It is suggested that eosinophil and mast cell infiltrations quantified in the large intestine wall might be associated with cyathostome infection. Expand
The prevalence and abundance of internal parasites in working horses autopsied in Poland.
  • J. Gawor
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Veterinary parasitology
  • 1995
TLDR
The digestive tracts of 50 working horses from private farms in Poland were examined and thirteen cyathostome species showed a site preference in the ventral colon, five in the dorsal colon and three in the caecum. Expand
The prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites of horses in Victoria, Australia.
TLDR
A quantitative post mortem study of 150 horses from Victoria was conducted to determine the prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites, which found that 17 species of strongyle were present in high abundance, which allowed their site distribution in the large intestine to be determined. Expand
Spatial niche competition among helminth parasites in horse's large intestine.
TLDR
The common belief that the horse large intestinal parasite community is isolationist, due to the absence of negative pairwise interaction, is contradicted by the present study. Expand
Prevalence, abundance and site distribution of equine small strongyles in Normandy, France.
TLDR
A positive correlation was found between the intensity of cyathostome infection and its diversity, measured either by the number of occurring species or Shanon indexes. Expand
The development of naturally acquired cyathostome infection in ponies.
TLDR
There was evidence that previous exposure modified cyathostome development, as acquired burdens in foals which had previously grazed were smaller and developed more slowly than those of helminth-naive animals of the same age. Expand
PREVALENCE OF STRONGYLE NEMATODES IN NATURALLY INFECTED PONIES OF DIFFERENT AGES AND DURING DIFFERENT SEASONS OF THE YEAR IN LOUISIANA
TLDR
In yearling ponies, encysted early third-stage larvae constituted a significantly lower percentage of the cyathostome population, and DL and adults formed a significantly higher percentage, compared with those stages in older ponies, 2–5 yr of age. Expand
An experimental evaluation of methods used to enumerate mucosal cyathostome larvae in ponies.
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of fixation and storage of mucosal tissues at -20 C on the accuracy of counting these larvae indicated that fixation of digested mucosa in PBS-buffered 5% or 10% formalin did not effect the enumeration of either early hypobiotic L3 or larger developing L2 or L4. Expand
