treatment of small lungworm infestation in sheep by using moxidectin.the use of moxidectin (mxd) in the treatment of small lungworm infestation (cystocaulus ocreatus, muellerius capillaris, neostrongylus linearis and protostronglylus rufescens) in sheep, was evaluated. twenty-one sheep naturally infested with small lungworms, were divided into three groups (n = 7) and treated as follows: group a with moxidectin 1% injectable solution at a dose rate of 0.2mgkg(-1) bodyweight, group b with moxidectin 0.1% oral drench at a dose rate of 0.2 mgkg(-1) bodyweight and gr ...200415135874
characterization of local immune response against lungworms in naturally infected sheep.this study describes the immunohistochemical and histochemical phenotypes of inflammatory cells in sheep lungs infected with lungworms. a total of 20 naturally infected sheep lungs were used. protostrongylus spp., muellerius capillaris, neostrongylus linearis, and cystocaulus ocreatus were the chief organisms determined from such lesions, which were of a chronic nature. all the lungs had many developmental stages of the parasites and a similar inflammatory response, which included numerous mast ...200919108954
migration and growth of neostrongylus linearis (marotel, 1913) gebauer, 1932 in order to establish the mammalian parasitic cycle of the nematode neostrongylus linearis 18 lambs were infected with 5000 third-stage larvae obtained from the snail cernuella (xeromagna) cespitum arigonis. in the subsequent days, larvae were found in the walls of the caecum and colon, in the liver and the lungs, suggesting that the bloodstream is the main migratory route. the presence of low numbers of migrating larvae in the mesenteric lymph nodes indicates that this route is probably seconda ...19846541841
larval development of neostrongylus linearis (nematoda, protostrongylidae) in the mollusc cochlicella barbara infected and maintained in a subhumid area (north-west spain) and its possible influence on the infection of small ruminants.twelve batches of 100 cochlicella barbara (mollusca, helicidae) were deposited monthly, from january to december in plots (0.5 x 0.5 m) with faeces of sheep containing first-stage larvae of neostrongylus linearis in order to be naturally infected, and another 12 batches acted as uninfected controls. every 2 weeks dead molluscs were removed from the plots and three to five specimens were examined to study larval development in the snail. infected and control snails did not differ in their mortali ...200516075262
