Abstract

Cattle were vaccinated with antigens from adult female B. microplus and haemolymph was collected from female ticks which had engorged on these animals and on matched control cattle. Radio-immunoassay for bovine plasma proteins in haemolymph from ticks fed on control cattle showed low concentrations ...

Abstract

Boophilus microplus adults and larvae were observed in chambers (aluminium rings glued to the back of the animals) on three European breed cattle which had been vaccinated against the tick and on three unvaccinated controls. The moulting of larvae on vaccinated cattle was delayed by up to 12 h but...

Abstract

Injection of extracts derived from adult female ticks induced partial immunity to Boophilus microplus in both Bos taurus and B. taurus×B. indicus breeds. Cattle showed a variable response to vaccination with the complete extract; 7 of 15 showed good resistance to ticks, 5 of 15 were intermediate...

Abstract

The economics of strategic dipping of Droughtmaster cattle in dry tropical Australia to control Boophilus microplus (Can.) were assessed using a partial budget analysis and expressed in Australian dollars at 1981 purchasing power. The analysis was based on reported experimental data that showed a...

Abstract

A summary is given of the findings of a previous study which showed that Babesia bovis infection in cattle interfered with the development of resistance to Boophilus microplus, including unpublished observations from that study on the effect of primary babesiosis on established tick resistance and...

Abstract

On the basis of the literature and laboratory studies carried out in Australia, evidence is presented which shows that the immediate hypersensitivity reaction of European breed cattle can reject Boophilus microplus (Can.) by stimulating host grooming and possibly by releasing histamine, which...

Abstract

The effect of the host immune system on an esterase deposited by larvae of Boophilus microplus (Can.) in British breed cattle was investigated in Australia. A standard amount of the esterase was shown to be deposited in the host dermis within 1 h of attachment of the larvae. A large proportion of...

Abstract

A study was carried out in Australia to investigate the relationship between resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) in cattle and immediate hypersensitivity reactions to allergens from the tick. The total amount of histamine in cattle skin and serum levels of antibody to one allergen were found...

Abstract

Resistance to Boophilus microplus (Can.) was compared in Brahman (Bos indicus) and European (B. taurus) cattle in Queensland. Similar numbers of ticks matured on previously unexposed cattle of both species although development of larvae to engorged females was slower on Brahman than on European ...

Abstract

The situation regarding chemical control of Boophilus microplus (Can.) in Queensland and the problem of acaricide resistance is discussed on the basis of the literature and laboratory and field studies which demonstrated the potential of mixtures containing low concentrations of pyrethroids...
