Calves infected orally with third stage larvae of Ostertagia ostertagi or infected with adult O ostertagi by direct transplantation into the abomasum had raised plasma pepsinogen activity, as did four-year-old dairy cattle challenged with O ostertagi third stage larvae on five occasions. Using fast protein liquid chromatography two forms of pepsinogen; pepsinogen 1 (PG1) and pepsinogen 2 (PG2) were identified in each of the parasitic infection regimes.
