Resumen

Fasciolosis is a parasitic disease with high economic impact that strikes most domestic ruminants. It is caused by two species: Fasciola hepatica and Fasciola gigantica (Trematode class), and it causes considerable economic losses to the livestock industry, particularly due to the increased costs of anthelmintic treatment and mortality, with ensuing decreased meat, wool and milk yields. The global losses caused by Fabiolosis to animal productivity are estimated in USD $ 3.200 millions a year , with a total of 600 millions animals infected in rural farms, and from commercial farmers.
