Schistosomiasis remains a major health problem in much of the developing world. Despite decades of research, many fundamental questions on the dynamics of infection and immunity development remain unanswered. Schistosomiasis is also a common parasitic infection in cattle, and studies on livestock exposed to their own species of schistosome may help in understanding some aspects of the host-parasite relationship. Here, Jan De Bont and Jozef Vercruysse review the current knowledge on the epidemiology and control of cattle schistosomiasis.
