Abstract

Cattle ticks are distributed worldwide and affect animal health and livestock production. White tailed deer (WTD) sustain and spread cattle tick populations. The aim of this study was to model the efficacy of anti-tick vaccination of WTD to control tick infestations in the absence of cattle...

Abstract

Tick subolesin was shown in immunization trials using the recombinant protein to protect hosts against tick infestations. In this study, we demonstrated that subolesin vaccination and release of ticks after subolesin knockdown by RNA interference (RNAi) could be used for the control of ...

Abstract

The horn fly Haematobia irritans (Linnaeus, 1758) (Diptera: Muscidae) is one of the most important ectoparasites of cattle. The parasitism of horn flies interferes with cattle feeding, thus reducing weight gain and milk production. Additionally, horn flies are mechanical vectors of pathogens that...

Abstract

Bovine anaplasmosis due to Anaplasma marginale is responsible for substantial economic losses in livestock production of developing countries. Vaccine development is hampered by wide genetic and antigenic diversity in strains of distant geographical areas. The objective of this study was to compare ...

Abstract

The application of acaricides has been considered for a long time to be the alternative for controlling the cattle tick Boophilus microplus [Rhipicephalus microplus]. However, their use is currently limited in reducing tick infestations due to the appearance of resistant field tick populations....

Abstract

Anaplasma marginale is a tick-borne pathogen of cattle that causes the disease bovine anaplasmosis worldwide. Major surface proteins (MSPs) are involved in host-pathogen and tick-pathogen interactions and have been used as markers for the genetic characterization of A. marginale strains. A....

Abstract

Ticks are important ectoparasites of domestic and wild animals, and tick infestations economically impact cattle production worldwide. Control of cattle tick infestations has been primarily by application of acaricides which has resulted in selection of resistant ticks and environmental pollution....

Abstract

A near 100% control of field populations of B. microplus, resistant to pyrethroid and organophosphorus acaricides, by an integrated system employing vaccination with a recombinant Bm86 antigen preparation (Gavac) and [unspecified] amidine acaricide treatments was demonstrated. The study was...

Abstract

Sequence variations in the Bm86 locus of B. microplus were examined using data obtained with B. microplus strains from Australia, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina and Venezuela. The results showed a tendency in the inverse correlation between the efficacy of the vaccination with Bm86 and the sequence...

Abstract

The results obtained with the application of Gavac for the control of Boophilus spp. infestations in various countries of the world are reviewed. In controlled field trials in Cuba, Brazil, Argentina and Mexico, Gavac showed a 55-100% efficacy in the control of B. microplus infestations in grazing ...
