Abstract

Bovine besnoitiosis is an emergent, chronic and debilitating disease caused by the parasite Besnoitia besnoiti. It affects cattle and wild European bovidae, but many aspects of its epidemiology are unknown. For the first time a study has been carried out of sera from wild ruminants in order to understand what role these species play in the life cycle of the parasite. The results show that red deer and roe deer have specific antibodies, which means they could be reservoirs of the parasite.
