Infect Genet Evol. Jan; doi: / Epub Nov 1. Unexpected occurrence of Haemonchus placei in cattle in southern . ABSTRACT. Molecular and morphological methods were evaluated to distinguish between Haemonchus contortus and Haemonchus placei species. A total of. Haemonchus placei is a species of parasitic nematode that infects cattle. What is a nematode? Nematodes, also called roundworms, are worm-shaped animals.

Int J Parasitol ; 42 5: Pathology is characterised by severe anaemia, leading to sudden weight loss and potentially death. Similarly, van Wyk et al. In Australia, significant observable genetic and phenotypic divergences were found between isolates of H.

Trichostrongyloidea and identification of PCR primers for placel differentiation.

Haemonchus placei – Wasmuth Lab

Services on Demand Journal. Table 1 describes the morphometrics of the male worms identified by PCR. Differentiation of Haemonchus placei from H.

The results indicated that 6. J Helminthol ; 88 1: Comparative morphological and molecular identification of Haemonchus species in sheep.

These PCR results were used as gold standard for Haemonchus spp. How to cite this article. It is an important parasite of cattle.

A total of H. It has cleat distinct morphological features from sheep and goats Plaei contortus and presents only two female morphotypes linguiform and knobbed instead of three recorded in H.

In isolates from the state of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, Santiago reported that the mean sheath tail length of infective larvae was Ten male Haemonchus worms per abomasum sample were randomly chosen for analysis, haempnchus all available specimens were analyzed when there were fewer than 10 parasites present.


Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here There were no consistent differences between species body length Table 1although H. For more information check out wikipedia.

The parasitic life-cycle of Haemonchus Placei (Place) Ransom (Nematoda: Trichostrongylidae)

You are commenting using your WordPress. They also observed overlapping of measurements between the two species, placsi is in agreement with the results of this study. Despite the laboratorial differences in the methodology used in fecal cultures to produce the third stage larvae, as well as the genetic differences in Haemonchus populations from different parts of the world, very consistent results can be observed with respect to the difference between the length of the sheath tail extension of H.

Some species can infect plants.

Haemonchus placei

Haemonchus placei in cattle has never been completely described, possibly due to great morphological similarity with small ruminants Haemonchus contortus. Identification of Haemonchus species in domestic ruminants based on morphometrics of spicules. Haemonchus species have been differentiated by morphological analyses and by the use of molecular techniques. Parasite Volume 6, Number 4December Host specificity of Haemonchus spp. New morphological characters for identifying individual specimens of Haemonchus spp.

Haemonchus contortus samples presented two DNA bands 1. Molecular identification by PCR and morphometrics means followed by size range in parentheses of male specimens of Haemonchus contortus and Haemonchus placei.

Therefore, efforts have focused on the development of vaccines efficient against both parasites.

Nevertheless, the agreement between PCR and discriminate function for specific diagnosis was relatively high, with a Kappa coefficient of 0.


Original Article Differentiation haemoncjus Haemonchus placei from Haemonchus contortus by PCR and by morphometrics of adult parasites and third stage larvae.

Haemonchus contortus and Haemonchus placei are among the most important parasites of ruminants in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. June 5, ; Accepted: Int J Parasitol ; 27 Aust J Zool ; 1 2: Burkina-Faso, Mauritania and Ivory Coast or Australia, possibly due to local evolution since their introduction several centuries ago from Africa or India.

Pathology is characterised by severe anaemia, leading to sudden weight loss and potentially death What is the treatment for Haemonchus placei? Introduction Haemonchus contortus and Haemonchus placei are among the most important parasites of ruminants in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. Genetic and phenotypic differences between isolates of Haemonchus contortus in Australia. In a pioneering study in Australia, Keith observed that Haemonchus infective larvae from cattle were longer and more robust than those from sheep and had a tail with a much longer whip-like filament.

According to Roberts et al. Before the challenge infection, all the animals received anthelmintic treatment to eliminate worms from the serial infections. In contrast, there was a consistent difference in sheath tail length between species, regardless of their source, cattle or sheep Table 3.

Species identification was established as follows ACHI et al. Significant differences were found in measurements of total length and tail length.
