Abstract

Under the current EU meat inspection regulation, every single carcase from all bovines above 6 weeks of age has to be examined for bovine cysticercosis (BC). This is time-consuming, costly, and is of limited value in countries with low prevalence. The aim of this study was to develop a stochastic...

Abstract

A loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay was developed and evaluated for diagnosis of tropical theileriosis. A set of six primers was designed based on the unique gene of Theileria annulata (Theileria annulata) strain Ankara hypothetical protein (GeneDB TA04795). The protocol for the...

Abstract

TICK2 is a detailed population model for 1- and 3-host ticks, with provision for modelling tick-borne diseases. The disease model can be superimposed on the tick model, and is intended to be applicable to any tick-borne disease: different diseases are characterized by different parameter values. A...

Abstract

RICHARDSON (Uganda) emphasizes the difficulties of dealing with trypanosomiasis partly owing to lack of knowledge and in part on account of shortage of staff for field work. No accurate figure can be given for the annual losses among cattle, but it is probably not less than 10, 000 head.
