Abstract

Tick-borne diseases cause significant livestock losses worldwide. In Russia, information concerning single or mixed infections with different Anaplasma, Theileria and Babesia species in cattle is very limited. This study was conducted to determine the level of co-infection with protozoan pathogens...

Abstract

East Coast fever (ECF) caused by Theileria parva kills cattle in East, Central and Southern Africa leading to significant economic losses. Vaccination is used as a control strategy against ECF and is presently dependent on deliberate infection with live sporozoites and simultaneous treatment with a ...

Abstract

Bovine babesiosis and theileriosis are fatal tick borne haemoparasites of vertebrates imposing serious constraints on health and productivity of livestock. Additionally, the recovered animals become persistent carriers and play a significant role in disease epidemiology. The present investigation...
