Nematode infections modulate the immune reaction of humans and livestock and may impair immune responses to non-parasitic antigens such as those present in vaccines. In this study, the relationship between antibodies directed against Ostertagia ostertagi, the economically most important nematode infection of cattle in temperate regions, and the magnitude and the kinetics of the antibody response to rabies vaccination was investigated in a commercial dairy herd of 46 cows. During the stabling period, all animals received a single intramuscular administration with a commercial inactivated rab…
