Bayer HealthCare to present new studies on parasite-borne diseases

27th August 2013

Bayer HealthCare will be discussing its latest insights into the prevention of the spread of parasite-borne diseases at a global congress in Perth this week.

The company is attending the World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology annual meeting to present data from more than 16 scientific studies, including key findings in the areas of endoparasites, ectoparasites and protozoa.

Its researchers have uncovered key insights into the epidemiology of endoparasites such as the lungworm angyostrongylus vasorum – which causes the canine cardiopulmonary infection angiostrongylosis – showing a trend in the general migration of parasites into new geographic regions, such as Germany, the UK and Poland.

Bayer will also discuss new evidence that further supports the safety and efficacy of its innovative flea and tick collar Seresto, which was a key driver of business growth for the company in the second quarter of 2013.

Dr Dirk Ehle, global head of Bayer HealthCare's animal health division, said: "We are pleased to be able to bring this new information about parasites and parasitic diseases to the research community through the WAAVP."ADNFCR-8000103-ID-801629719-ADNFCR
