sensitivity of crude and purified fasciola antigens in immunological diagnosis of human fascioliasis.a study has been done to find the effect of purification of crude antigens, extracted from adult fasciola gigantica and fasciola hepatica worms on the sensitivity of some serological techniques in diagnosis of fascioliasis. using c.i.e.p. test, the partially purified antigens of both fasciola species were less sensitive than their corresponding crude ones. using i.h.a., the difference between results of crude and partially purified antigens for the two species were statistically insignificant, b ...19892768848

experimental cholecystitis in goats caused by mature fasciola gigantica.mature fasciola gigantica obtained from naturally infected cattle were surgically transferred into the gallbladders of six fluke-free goats. two of the goats died at two and 19 weeks and the remaining four were slaughtered at 12, 48, 48 and 80 weeks after the transfer. nine of 20 transferred f gigantica were recovered from the gallbladder and common hepatic duct of the experimental goats. the walls of gallbladders and bile ducts were thickened by epithelial proliferation, fibrosis and mononuclea ...19854012032

environmental stress and parasitic infections: i. the effects of gramoxone and hexadrin on embryo and hatching of fasciola gigantica miracidia.the effect of two chemical compounds commonly used in agriculture, gramoxone (a herbicide) and hexadrin (an insecticide) on embryonic development and hatching of fasciola gigantica miracidia were experimentally assessed. these two pesticides were introduced in varying quantities into petri dishes containing unembryonated eggs of the trematode for a period of 30 days. lc50 (lethal concentration for 50% hatching) values were determined for them. for gramoxone it was 2 ppm and for hexadrin it was 2 ...19883202331
[epidemiologic data on distomiasis due to fasciola gigantica cobbold on the island of madagascar. infestation of cattle between 1975 and 1981].stools examinations of zebus were made in madagascar between 1975 and 1981 for determining the importance of fascioliasis gigantica in the six provinces of the island during this time. high percentages of f. gigantica eggs were found in the stools of the different infected zebus-herds of five provinces. no fasciolid infection was noted in 1979 in the cattle of the province of diego-suarez. differences were noted between the infection rate obtained by fecal examination and the rate indicated in t ...19854075467
protection against fasciola gigantica infection in rats administered metacercarial antigens.immature worms were recovered from the liver parenchyma of rats which received extracts of metacercariae or adult worms of fasciola gigantica, after challenge infection. when resistance was assessed by counting the number of immature worms, exposure of the animals to extracts of these two stages of the flukes conferred a significant degree of protection against challenge with f gigantica metacercariae. rats given the extract of metacercariae were more resistant to infection than rats immunised w ...19854081346

the effect of niclofolan on desert sheep experimentally infected with immature fasciola gigantica.eight desert sheep were each infected orally with 500 metacercariae of fasciola gigantica and, after 4 weeks, four of the animals were given niclofolan orally at the recommended therapeutic dose rate of 7 mg/kg, the other four remaining as controls. one week later, the animals were slaughtered and the fasciocidal effect of the drug was evaluated on the basis of worm burden, haemogram, some plasma constituents, and gross and histopathological lesions of the liver, as indicators of efficacy. the t ...19854094030

studies on heterologous resistance between schistosoma bovis and fasciola gigantica in sudanese cattle.using the local strains of schistosoma bovis and fasciola gigantica, it was shown that sudanese zebu calves with mature primary infections of f. gigantica were highly resistant to challenge with s. bovis cercariae, and vice versa. liver enzyme tests showed that, in both cases, the primary infections had caused some liver damage. primary infection with irradiated s. bovis cercariae, which did not cause significant liver damage, did not protect significantly against challenge with f. gigantica.19863701021
some biochemical indices in naturally occurring fascioliasis in goats.some biochemical indices were assayed in goats naturally harbouring fasciola gigantica infection and compared with uninfected control goats. infected goats had significantly lower levels of serum glucose (47.6 +/- 1.8 mg dl-1) and albumin (3.1 +/- 0.1 g dl-1) and reduced albumin:globulin ratio (1.1 +/- 0.1). total lipid (526.8 +/- 2.4 mg dl-1), serum glutamate dehydrogenase (15.3 +/- 0.9 iu litre-1) and serum alkaline phosphatase (31.6 +/- 1.9 kind's and king's unit dl-1) were high in infected g ...19863704349
studies on naturally-occurring ovine fascioliasis in the sudan.haematological, biochemical and pathological changes were investigated in 214 sheep naturally infected with fasciola gigantica in an endemic area in the sudan together with 82 uninfected controls. infected animals showed a clear decrease in erythrocyte counts, haemoglobin concentration and packed cell volume, a normochromic, normocytic anaemia, leucocytosis and eosinophilia. serum concentrations of the enzymes glutamate dehydrogenase, sorbitol dehydrogenase and glutamate oxaloacetic acid transam ...19863701020
