Variations of biological indicators as highly presumptive markers for fasciolosis in experimentally - infected sheep

Abstract

Distomatosis due to Fasciola hepatica is nowadays considered as one of the main five parasitoses in Algeria. In the northeastern part of this country, high prevalences of natural infections are recorded in cattle, especially in the littoral zone (nearly 45% at El Tarf, 42% at Skikda, and 27% at Jijel, unpublished results). Because of its insidious nature, the disease is only detected at slaughterhouses during liver inspection, as no serological or coprological screenings for fasciolosis are performed in farms.
