Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Anthelmintic resistance and the control of ovine ostertagiasis - a drug-action model for genetic selection

Abstract

A site-specific genetic prediction model is presented, which examines the influences of different anthelmintic treatment regimens on selecting for drug resistance within a sheep management system. The model exploits the power of modern microcomputers to integrate factors such as parasite strain, geographic location, management practice and genetic fitness to identify effective control regimens which do not lead to resistant Ostertagia circumcincta strains over a 30-year horizon. The potential use of the model as a farm level management-support tool is discussed.
