Abstract

Neospora caninum is an obligate intracellular parasite that infects domestic and wild animals and is considered as a one of the major cause of reproductive problem in cattle worldwide. Transplacental route is the main form of transmission of the parasite and responsible for maintaining the parasite in the herd. The detection of the parasite by molecular tests is necessary to determine the real prevalence of the disease in cattle and subsequent assessment of genetic diversity, which could result in differences in virulence and pathogenicity of the disease, thereby elucidating the population of the parasite structure and contributing to the elucidation of new forms of control and treatment of disease. The present project aims to detect the presence of N. caninum by molecular test in brain tissue from fetuses of cattle obtained from slaughterhouses of Ourinhos-SP and region and the presence of anti-N. caninum antibodies by indirect immunofluorescence test in their respective pregnant cow to determine the vertical transmission rate.
