effect of gamma-irradiation on the survival and development of the infective larvae of the hookworm, gaigeria pachyscelis.irradiation of the infective larvae of gaigeria pachyscelis railliet and henry, 1910 with gamma rays upto 160 kr had no significant effect on the in vitro survival of these larvae for a period of 49 days, maintained either at room temperature (32.2--39.4 degrees c) or at 4 degrees c. however, the behaviour of the irradiated larvae in the lamb host was much changed, as shown by a marked reduction in the worm establishment and the development of stunted and sterile worms from these larvae. as the ...1978571885
the use of gamma-radiation-attenuated larvae of gaigeria pachyscelis railliet and henry, 1910, for vaccination in lambs.the results of vaccination trial in lambs with gamma-irradiated infective larvae of gaigeria pachyscelis are described. a single percutaneous (p/c) vaccination of lambs with 2000 infective larvae irradiated at 40 kr induced the development of resistance. the vaccinated lambs successfully resisted a lethal challenge infection of 5000 non-irradiated larvae 3 months later. in the vaccinated lambs, the manifestations of resistance were shown by marked reduction in the worm establishment, development ...1978571886

use of the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in the diagnosis of dictyocaulus filaria infection.the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) was used to detect and quantify antibodies to whole worm extract antigens of dictyocaulus filaria. the results provided evidence that the test was highly sensitive and could be used as a tool for epidemiological studies. no cross reactions were observed with sera from lambs infected with the hookworm gaigeria pachyscelis.19846239341
anthelmintic efficacy of mebendazole suspension against induced helminth infections in south african sheep and cattle.critical controlled tests were performed in 157 sheep (8 experiments) and 34 cattle (2 experiments) to evaluate the anthelmintic activity of mebendazole suspension, administered intraruminally via a stomach tube at a dosage rate of 15 mg of mebendazole/kg of body weight, against induced infections of immature and adult stages of commonly encountered nematode parasites in south africa. in the sheep, the controlled efficacy of mebendazole suspension was good to excellent (90.1% to 100%) against al ...19846375485
isolation and partial characterization of cuticular collagen from the parasitic nematode gaigeria pachyscelis.the cuticle from adult gaigeria pachyscelis was isolated by solubilizing the internal tissues with sodium dodecyl sulphate (sds) at 37 degrees c. cuticular protein was extracted with guanidine-hcl and beta-mercaptoethanol and purified by ammonium sulphate fractionation and deae-cellulose chromatography. sds-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of purified protein revealed 2 polypeptides with apparent mol. wts of 58,000 and 74,000. as judged from their hydroxyproline content both of them are collag ...19846745403
