Resistance to Fasciola hepatica in calves harbouring primary patent Schistosoma bovis infections



Resistance to Fasciola hepatica in calves harbouring primary patent Schistosoma bovis infections



Journal of Helminthology 55(1): 63-70



A substantial resistanceto a heterologous challenge with F. hepatica was demonstrated in calves harboring primary patent S. bovis infections of an age of 10 wk at challenge, the mean worm burden being reduced by 29.9% (P < 0.025) in calves primarily infected with S. bovis as compared with that of the challenge control group. Heterologous resistance was evidenced by less pronounced liver tissue damage and lower serum .gamma.-glutamyl-transpeptidase values in the S. bovis-infected animals compared with the challenge control group.
