preliminary studies on the prevalences of natural fasciolosis in cattle, sheep, and the host snail (galba truncatula) in north-eastern algeria.three series of investigations on natural infections with fasciola hepatica were carried out in north-eastern algeria): (1) on different samples from cattle and sheep slaughtered at constantine and jijel from 1994 to 1996, (2) from 31 cattle- and sheep-breeding farms from 1999 to 2001, using serology on blood samples, and (3) on overwintering galba truncatula from four populations, in 2002 and 2003. significantly higher prevalences of fasciolosis were found in the cattle and sheep from jijel (27 ...200414999466
the proportion of liver excised in algerian abattoirs is not a good indicator of fasciola hepatica infections in local cattle breeds.clinical and serological investigations on 175 cattle were carried out in 1999 at the slaughterhouse of jijel, northeastern algeria, to verify if partial ablation of a liver infected with fasciola hepatica represents a good epidemiological indicator in the case of fasciolosis, as partial excision of the liver is widespread throughout north african countries. this study was also performed to determine if there is a direct relationship between the quantity of liver confiscated for fasciolosis and ...200616923278
