Abstract: The current study was conducted to isolate a field strain of Eimeria ninakohlyakimovae, characterize its infectivity and the response to challenge under experimental conditions. The isolated strain (GC) induced a prepatent period of 14–15 days p.i., a patency of 7 ± 2 days and a noticeable pathogenicity in infected goat kids. Challenge trials resulting in a decrease of oocysts per gram counts as well as a milder intensity of clinical signs in re-infected animals indicated the capacity of this strain to induce protective immune response. Altogether, the data reported in the present study suggest that the strain E. ninakohlyakimovae GC is a useful tool for the investigation of mechanisms of pathogenicity as well as host protective immune response in caprine coccidiosis, representing a valuable prerequisite for the development of future strategies in prophylaxis and control of this important parasitic disease in goat.
