The effect of dietary sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) on local cellular responses to Trichostrongylus colubriformis in sheep
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-08)
The effect of sainfoin (Onobrychis viciifolia) hay consumption on the pathophysiology and local cellular responses of growing lambs during infection with Trichostrongylus colubriformis was investigated. Thirty-two lambs, ...
Estimates of the nutritional cost of the development of immunity to gastrointestinal parasites in sheep
(Lincoln University, 2005)
This thesis describes a series of three experiments designed to estimate the nutritional cost of the immune response to the gastrointestinal nematodes Trichostrongylus colubriformis and Teladorsagia circumcincta in sheep. ...
Leptin concentrations and the immune-mediated reduction of feed intake in sheep infected with the nematode Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Cambridge University Press, 2009)
The hypothesis that increases in the concentration of the anorectic peptide leptin may be responsible for the immune-mediated reduction in feed intake (FI) during gastrointestinal parasitism in sheep was investigated. In ...
The effect of concurrent corticosteroid induced immuno-suppression and infection with the intestinal parasite Trichostrongylus colubriformis on food intake and utilization in both immunologically naïve and competent sheep
(Cambridge University Press, 2005-02)
The nutritional cost of both the acquisition and maintenance of immunity to gastro-intestinal nematodes was investigated using immunologically naïve 5-month-old lambs and immunologically competent 17-month-old ewes. Within ...
Protein supply influences the nutritional penalty associated with the development of immunity in lambs infected with Trichostrongylus colubriformis
(Cambridge University Press, 2008-11)
The influence of dietary protein supply on the nutritional penalty associated with the acquisition phase of the immune response to gastrointestinal nematodes in lambs was investigated. Groups of lambs were offered either ...
