  • By comparing references on gastrointestinal nematodes in both goats and sheep, two databases show that only 20 % to 25 % of references relate to caprine studies. (cost.eu)
  • The generation of comparative data in goats and sheep will help better understand some basic differences in the regulatory mechanisms controlling parasitic infections and explore some trade-offs between these regulatory processes related to either the host's behaviour or to the host's immune response. (cost.eu)
  • Comparing results on the interactions between parasites and sheep and those same parasites with goats demonstrates how inferring data acquired on one host species to a second one can lead to errors that might have dramatic consequences on the control of these infections. (cost.eu)
  • It also illustrates different potential approaches for control: if exploiting the immune response combined with strategic treatments seems an efficient option in sheep, exploiting the feeding behaviour, including the potential to self-medicate on natural resources, might be as valuable in goats.
