Abstract

Serological surveys using the schizont indirect fluorescence antibody test (IFAt) are routinely carried out to monitor the Theileria parva infection prevalence. The present study evaluates the diagnostic accuracy of the IFAt in eastern Zambia, where the transmission of T. parva is highly seasonal....
