Bilirubinaemia and plasma gamma -glutamyltransferase activity in lambs with experimental Fasciola hepatica infection

Bilirubinaemia and plasma gamma -glutamyltransferase activity in lambs with experimental Fasciola hepatica infection

Reproduction, Nutrition, Development (Suppl. 2): 233s-234s

In lambs experimentally infected with 150 F. hepatica metacercariae, plasma gamma -glutamyltransferase activity rose from week 6 pi (as the young flukes reach the liver) to a maximum of 77.4 IU/litre on week 10, after which it declined. Bilirubinaemia rose abruptly 8 weeks pi (as the flukes entered the bile ducts and obstructed them) to reach a peak of 4.5 mg/litre on week 26. Blood carotenoid levels were not affected by infection.
