Experimental fascioliasis in horses: evolution of serum antibodies, plasma enzymes and faecal egg counts



Experimental fascioliasis in horses: evolution of serum antibodies, plasma enzymes and faecal egg counts



Annales de Recherches Veterinaires 20(3): 295-307



One, three and four horses were infected with 5000, 100 and 1000 metacercariae of Fasciola hepatica, respectively. Six of them were reinfested 38 weeks later with 1000 metacercariae each. Specific antibodies assayed by counter-electrophoresis, passive haemagglutination and ELISA tests appeared at 3-6 weeks infection and peaked 10-17 weeks after infection.
