prevalence of cystic echinococcosis in camels (camelus dromedarius) in an abattoir study, 514 camels, slaughtered for meat production in different areas of northern libya were examined for the presence of cystic echinococcosis (ce). in addition, 367 sheep and 184 goats were examined. the overall prevalence of infection with ce was 48% in camels, 15.8% in sheep and 3.8% in goats. the infection rate, number and size of cysts were significantly higher in older camels. in six city abattoirs across northern libya, i.e. zawia, tripoli, el-khumes, mesurata, sirt and be ...19989639897
a biochemical study of cystic stage fluids of echinococcus granulosus of animal origin in libya.the biochemical analyses of hydatid cyst fluids of sheep, goats and camels slaughtered in abattoir of sirt, libya showed the same constituents of elements and organic compounds. but, sheep hydatid cyst fluids contained significantly more triglycerides (p<0.05), phosphorus (p<0.05) and protein (p<0.001) than those in camels and goats. urea was significantly more (p<0.05) in sheep and goats compared to camels.200617153710
