the longevity of fasciola hepatica metacercariae encysted on experiment was described in which guinea pigs were used as tracer animals in an attempt to assess the longevity of fasciola hepatic metacercariae on pasture at werribee, victoria. the metacercariae had been encysted on both an irrigated and non-irrigated area at various times during 1976. it was determined that, under the conditions of the experiment, metacercariae can survive and remain viable for up to 10 weeks during the winter. it was also determined that longevity during the summer was g ...1979444161
an epidemiological investigation of ovine fascioliasis (fasciola hepatica) on both irrigated and non-irrigated pastures in northern victoria. 1979533488
fascioliasis in dairy cows on irrigated pasture.the prevalence and severity of fascioliasis was studied in 87 dairy cows from 36 irrigated farms in victoria. evidence of fasciola hepatica infection was found in 85 (98%) cows representing all but one of the herds. the mean fluke burden (7 +/- 6) in cows treated with anthelmintics at drying off was lower (p < 0.05) than in untreated cows (24 +/- 7). haemoglobin levels in untreated cows (9.6 +/- 0.04) were higher (p < 0.05) than values obtained from treated animals (8.2 +/- 0.3). severity of bil ...19807436938
the efficacy of formulations of triclabendazole and ivermectin in combination against liver fluke (fasciola hepatica) and gastro-intestinal nematodes in cattle and sheep and sucking lice species in assess the efficacy of two formulations of triclabendazole and ivermectin in combination against liver fluke (fasciola hepatica), gastro-intestinal nematodes and sucking louse species in cattle and sheep.200212465830
the prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites of horses in victoria, australia.a quantitative post mortem study of 150 horses from victoria was conducted to determine the prevalence and epidemiology of gastrointestinal parasites. a total of 42 species of metazoan parasite was found. the following species of non-cyathostome parasite were found (% prevalence): trichostrongylus axei (51%); habronema muscae (13%); h. majus (2%); draschia megastoma (5%); gastreophilus intestinalis (81%); g. nasalis (29%); parascaris equorum (5%); anoplocephala perfoliata (29%); fasciola hepatic ...19957657457
resistance of fasciola hepatica to triclabendazole. 19958534235
high prevalence of fasciolosis and evaluation of drug efficacy against fasciola hepatica in dairy cattle in the maffra and bairnsdale districts of gippsland, victoria, australia.liver fluke (fasciola hepatica) is a common parasite amongst grazing livestock in the south-eastern region of australia and is responsible for significant production losses in the beef and dairy industries. gippsland in victoria is a major region for dairy production but no fluke prevalence data in livestock has been obtained in this region since the late 1970s prior to the introduction of triclabendazole (tcbz). tcbz resistance is also now widespread in cattle in south east australia. in this s ...201525771931
evidence for high genetic diversity of nad1 and cox1 mitochondrial haplotypes among triclabendazole resistant and susceptible populations and field isolates of fasciola hepatica (liver fluke) in recent years, the global incidence of fasciola hepatica (liver fluke) infections exhibiting resistance to triclabendazole (tcbz) has increased, resulting in increased economic losses for livestock producers and threatening future control. the development of tcbz resistance and the worldwide discovery of f. hepatica population diversity has emphasized the need to further understand the genetic structure of drug susceptible and resistant fasciola populations within australia. in this study, the ...201424360656
