Abstract

Background: Some tick species are invasive and of high consequence to public and veterinary health. Socioeconomic development of rural parts of the USA was enabled partly through the eradication by 1943 of cattle fever ticks (CFT, Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) annulatus and R. (B.) microplus). The...

Abstract

Ticks and transmitted pathogens constitute a major burden for cattle industry in the Neotropics. To address this limitation, the Spanish Ibero-American Program of Science and Technology in Development office (CYTED) supported from 2018 a network of scientists named "LaGar" (CYTED code 118RT0542)...

Abstract

The cattle tick, Rhipicephalus annulatus (Say) is a vector of bovine babesiosis and responsible for direct and indirect losses to cattle producing areas located in temperate and subtropical dry regions. Resistance against pyrethroids has been reported for this species in Asia and Africa, but never...

Abstract

The water buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) is an Asian species of bovine which was introduced in Mexico in 1992, as an alternative for milk and meat production. However, little is known about its associated ectoparasites, in particular about their lice. As a part of a project to identify the diversity and ...

Abstract

In addition to the direct issues associated with the parasitic association between ticks and cattle, approximately 20 million heads of cattle are exposed to diseases. The main goals of this study were to assess the diversity of a cultured microbiota associated with endemic bovine tick species and...

Abstract

The cattle tick Rhipicephalus microplus has a large impact on cattle production due to its bloodsucking habit and transmission of pathogens that cause babesiosis and anaplasmosis. Application of acaricides constitutes the major control method but is often accompanied by serious drawbacks, including ...

Abstract

The objective of this study was to instrument a serological assay for the epidemiological diagnosis of bovine babesiosis in Mexico, using the Babesia bigemina recombinant protein RAP-1 (rRAP-1α) as antigen. rRAP-1α, r12d3 and rGP45 were the three recombinant antigens initially tested. Based on the...
