Neospora caninum


The NeoCan dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Neospora caninum detection by using qPCR. Neospora caninum is an obligate intracellular, parasitic protozoan previously misclassified as Toxoplasma gondii due to structural similarities. It is responsible of the neosporosis, an infectious disease for many canids and cattle. Neuromuscular degeneration in canids, which led to hind limb paralysis, and spontaneous abortion in dairy cattle was observed as a major cause of disease by neosporosis. Definitive host are the domestic dogs, coyotes, grey wolves and dingos; where the parasite can complete their life cycle. Recent studies have broadened the list of known intermediate hosts to include birds, which can be an important link in the transmission to other animals. Although this disease is worldwide, it is of major concern in the United States, Netherlands, and New Zealand.
