Abstract

Piroplasmosis is caused by tick-borne haemoprotozoan parasites in the genera of Theileria and Babesia, in which numbers of agents are highly pathogenic for cattle, sheep and goats. We developed a reverse line blot (RLB) assay for detection and differentiation of four different parasites, in which...

Abstract

The African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a large wild bovid which until recently ranged across all but the driest parts of sub-Saharan Africa, and their local range being limited to about 20 km from surface water. They are of high ecological value due to their important role as bulk feeders in the...

Abstract

Piroplasms are among the most harmful tick-borne pathogens for livestock and sensitive and specific diagnostic methods for rapid detection and identification of the different species are needed for effective control. Reverse Line Blot has been the molecular technique of choice but it is laborious,...

Abstract

Theileria parva (T. parva) causes a highly serious bovine disease called East Coast fever (ECF), which is characterized by pyrexia, dyspnea and cachexia and is of great economic importance in African countries. We hypothesize that the clinical symptoms of ECF could be explained by a cytokine...

Abstract

The tick-borne protozoan parasite Theileria annulata causes a debilitating disease of cattle called Tropical Theileriosis. The parasite predominantly invades bovine macrophages (mφ) and induces host cell transformation by a mechanism that has not been fully elucidated. Infection is associated with...

AbstractFull Text

The prevalence of tick-borne pathogens (Babesia, Theileria, Rickettsia species) in questing and feeding adult ticks was determined for first time in Romania. A total of 165 ticks were analyzed in the study. Of these, 40 were questing ticks and 125 were collected from naturally infested cattle,...

Abstract

The current Infection and Treatment Method of vaccination against East Coast fever comprises an inoculation of live Theileria parva sporozoites and simultaneous administration of oxytetracycline. Immunization with a combination of parasite types has been shown to provide broader protection than...

Abstract

Tick-borne protozoan diseases, babesiosis and theileriosis, are among the most important diseases affecting the productivity of livestock worldwide and resulting in high economic losses. A prerequisite for the control of these diseases is to study their epidemiology by mapping their distribution...

Abstract

Mini- and microsatellite sequences have proven to be excellent tools for the differentiation of strains and populations in several protozoan parasites due to their high variability. In the present work we have searched the genome of the tick-transmitted bovine hemoprotozoon Babesia bovis for tandem ...
