prevalence of antibodies to neospora caninum in local and imported cattle breeds in the kars province of turkey.this study investigates the seroprevalence of neospora caninum in cattle in the province of kars in north-eastern turkey. a total of 301 serum samples, 228 from local breeds of cows with a history of recent abortion and the remaining 73 collected at random from simmental cows imported from germany or their offspring, were tested for anti-neospora antibodies by elisa. all the serum samples from local breeds were negative for n. caninum antibodies, apart from one which tested inconclusive. in cont ...200515563918
variability in the echinococcus granulosus cytochrome c oxidase 1 mitochondrial gene sequence from livestock in turkey and a re-appraisal of the g1-3 genotype cluster.investigations into the genetic strains of echinococcus granulosus parasites occurring in sheep and cattle in turkey were undertaken. a total of 112 hydatid cysts were investigated from sheep (100 isolates) derived from widely distributed sites within turkey as well as from cattle (12 isolates) from the turkish province of kars. the parasite genotypes in these isolates were determined by dna sequencing of part of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase 1 (cox1) gene. haplotypes were identified wh ...200818485601

the prevalence of bovine hypodermosis in kars province, turkey.a total of 1276 cattle from 76 farms in 8 villages were examined by palpation of the skin for evidence of hypodermosis. the effects of age, sex, breed, and colour of cattle on hypodermosis were investigated. the overall prevalence was 31.9%. the mean number of warble fly larvae on infested animals was 8.46. hypodermosis infestations were encountered in all the villages visited. within a herd, the intensity of infestion decreased with the age of cattle. infestation rates of warble fly larvae were ...200516619878
emergence of distinct genotypes of cryptosporidium parvum in structured host populations.cryptosporidium parvum is an apicomplexan parasite that infects humans and ruminants. c. parvum isolated from cattle in northeastern turkey and in israel was genotyped using multiple polymorphic genetic markers, and the two populations were compared to assess the effect of cattle husbandry on the parasite's population structure. dairy herds in israel are permanently confined with essentially no opportunity for direct herd-to-herd transmission, whereas in turkey there are more opportunities for t ...200616597950
teat onchocercosis in cows with reference to prevalence, species involved and pathology.the present study reports teat onchocercosis in cows in the province of kars in north eastern turkey with reference to the prevalence, species involved and pathological findings. in the study, 600 cows of various breeds and ages slaughtered in the local abattoir were examined and 145 (24%) were found to have various lesions on their teats, of which 45 (31%) were infected with three onchocerca species (onchocerca gutturosa, o. lienalis and an unidentified onchocerca spp.), identified according to ...200515500839
