      Hanssen, Sveinn Are; Sonne, Christian; Bustnes, Jan Ove; Schnug, Lisbeth; Bourgeon, Sophie; Ballesteros, Manuel; Eulaers, Igor; Moum, Truls Borg; Johnsen, Trond Vidar; Kjelgaard-Hansen, Mads; Herzke, Dorte; Jaspers, Veerle L.B.; Covaci, Adrian; Eens, Marcel; Halley, Duncan John; Erikstad, Kjell Einar; Ims, Rolf Anker (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      We investigated the effects of parasite removal on various blood clinical–chemical variables (BCCVs). BCCVs are indicators of health, reflecting, e.g., homeostasis of liver, kidney function, and bone metabolism. The study ...
    • Antiparasite treatments reduce humoral immunity and impact oxidative status in raptor nestlings 

      Hanssen, Sveinn Are; Bustnes, Jan Ove; Schnug, Lisbeth; Bourgeon, Sophie; Johnsen, Trond Vidar; Ballesteros, Manuel; Sonne, Christian; Herzke, Dorte; Eulaers, Igor; Jaspers, Veerle L.B.; Covaci, Adrian; Eens, Marcel; Halley, Duncan John; Moum, Truls Borg; Ims, Rolf Anker; Erikstad, Kjell Einar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Parasites are natural stressors that may have multiple negative effects on their host as they usurp energy and nutrients and may lead to costly immune responses that may cause oxidative stress. At early stages, animals may ...
