Analysis of co-infection with Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii in Tunisian sheep
Mohamed Gharbi. (28/1/2020). Analysis of co-infection with Neospora caninum and Toxoplasma gondii in Tunisian sheep.
Co-infection with N. caninum and T. gondii has been detected in several species worldwide. It has been detected in rabbits (Hughes et al., 2008), domestic camelids (Pardini et al., 2008), cats (Hamidinejat et al., 2011 ; Thomasson et al., 2011), cattle (Huong et al., 1998 ; Ooi et al., 2000 ; Bae et al., 2000 ;Yildiz et al., 2009 ; Panadero et al., 2010; Gharekhani, 2014 ; Razmi et al., 2017), sheep (Romanelli et al., 2007 ; Panadero et al., 2010) and yaks (Liu et al., 2008). The similarities and differences between these two parasites prompted us to study the co-infection of hosts. Our study was carried out to investigate the co-infection by T. gondii and N. caninum in meat and semen of Tunisian sheep.
