piroplasms of domestic animals in the macedonia region of greece. 3. piroplasms of small ruminants.a study was carried out on piroplasms of small ruminants in the macedonia region of greece. during 1984-1985, 721 serum samples were collected from sheep in 49 localities and 487 from goats in 43 localities. blood smears were also prepared from 26 sheep and eight goats in 16 localities. the prevalence of positive ifa titres for sheep and goat sera, respectively, was: 24.6% and 0.6% for theileria ovis, 52.1% and 36.4% for babesia ovis, 10.5% and 4.2% for babesia motasi, 12.6% and 6.6% for babesia ...19968792581
cattle and small ruminant piroplasmosis in macedonia, greece.macedonia is an endemic region of cattle as well as of sheep and goat piroplasmosis in cattle, theileria orientalis (=t. buffeli?), the agent of eurasian benign theileriosis, is the most common and widespread piroplasm species. t. annulata, the agent of tropical theileriosis, seems to be rare and limited to few foci, but causes very severe clinical cases, especially in imported pure-bred or cross-bred animals. babesia bovis and b. bigemina are present in several localities, and often coexist. ca ...199911071550
sources of variation and genetic profile of spontaneous, out-of-season ovulatory activity in the chios sheep.organising the breeding plan of a seasonally breeding species, such as sheep, presents a challenge to farmers and the industry as a whole, since both economical and biological considerations need to be carefully balanced. understanding the breeding activity of individual animals becomes a prerequisite for a successful breeding program. this study set out to investigate the sources of variation and the genetic profile of the spontaneous, out-of-season ovulatory activity of ewes of the chios dairy ...200312605851
the epidemiology of sheep pox in greece from 1987 to 2007.the authors reviewthe epidemiology of sheep pox outbreaks in greece between 1987 and 2007. it is believed that sheep pox is introduced into greece principally from neighbouring countries to the east, and is associated with the movements of infected sheep flocks close to the border and contacts between humans and animals. disease foci have appeared in several central and north-eastern areas of the country. between 1982 and 1986, greece remained free of sheep pox but, in 1987, the disease appeared ...200819284058
ENVIRONMENTAL RADIOACTIVITY MEASUREMENTS IN GREECE FOLLOWING THE FUKUSHIMA DAICHI NUCLEAR ACCIDENT.Since the double disaster of the 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami that affected hundreds of thousands of people and seriously damaged the Fukushima Daichi power plant in Japan on 11 March 2011, traces of radioactive emissions from Fukushima have spread across the entire northern hemisphere. The radioactive isotope of iodine (131)I that was generated by the nuclear accident in Fukushima arrived in Greece on 24 March 2011. Radioactive iodine is present in the air either as gas or bound to part ...201122090415
drought and flock isolation may enhance the development of anthelmintic resistance in nematodes.a survey of anthelmintic resistant nematodes was conducted in sheep and goat flocks in greece using in vivo and in vitro tests. faecal egg count reduction tests in macedonia were all greater than 99% indicating very high sensitivity of the nematodes to anthelmintics. in vitro tests showed benzimidazole resistant teladorsagia circumcincta in 17 out of 106 flocks on small islands. on the mainland there were only three cases of benzimidazole resistance out of 310 flocks and animals had recently bee ...200111390078
hydatidosis of food animals in greece: prevalence of cysts containing viable protoscoleces.the viability rate of hydatid cysts was investigated in animals slaughtered in the abattoir of thessaloniki, macedonia, greece. two hundred sheep (100% infection rate), 106 cattle (56.6% infected), 203 pigs (9.3%) and 52 goats (15.4%) were examined. all fertile cysts contained viable protoscoleces. in sheep there was a mean of 1.1 (29.8% of total cysts) fertile cysts per animal containing 297.3 (81.3%) viable protoscoleces. the percentage of viable protoscoleces in the lungs was 82.3% and in the ...19947706677
piroplasms of domestic animals in the macedonia region of greece. 1. serological cross-reactions.during a serological survey on haemoparasites in macedonia, serum samples were collected from cattle, sheep and goats. all sera were tested by the indirect immunofluorescence test (ifat); the cattle sera against theileria orientalis, t. annulata, babesia bigemina, b. bovis, b. divergens and b. major antigens; the sheep and goat sera against t. ovis, b. ovis, b. motasi and b. crassa antigens. parallel tests of negative and positive control sera against all the antigens showed the existence of cro ...19968792579
ticks of domestic animals in the macedonia region of greece.a study was carried out on ticks of domestic animals in the macedonia region of greece. during 1983-1986, 11,620 tick specimens, belonging to 18 species and subspecies, were collected from cattle, sheep, goats and dogs, in 64 localities throughout macedonia. rhipicephalus bursa, the most common tick, and hyalomma marginatum marginatum occurred in all bioclimatic zones, as well as the two one-host ticks, boophilus annulatus and h. detritum scupense, which were present in fewer localities. r. tura ...19968792578
