AbstractFull Text

The seroprevalence of Anaplasma marginale, Babesia bigemina, Babesia bovis and Trypanosoma vivax and the risk factors for these infections were investigated in 509 cows on 37 farms in the semiarid region of Paraíba, northeastern Brazil. Cow serum samples were tested by means of immunofluorescence...

AbstractFull Text

A study was conducted to determine the protection ability of East Coast fever (ECF) vaccine delivered in several regions of Tanzania. A total of 1216 immunised cattle were sampled from four regions of Tanzania for analysis of Theileria parva antibody levels. Animals that were examined came from...

Abstract

The epidemiology of bovine babesiosis caused by Babesia bigemina and B. bovis is reviewed with reference to the economic impact of the disease in Central and South America, disease transmission by Boophilus microplus, and factors which affect disease prevalence, including climatic conditions,...

Abstract

The authors report that the regular outbreaks of Babesia bovis infection in cattle in their practice have been prevented by giving a subcutaneous dose of 200 µg/kg ivermectin soon after turn-out in spring, to control the vector tick, Ixodes ricinus. This technique has the advantage of controlling...

Abstract

Aspects of the epidemiology of B. bovis were studied in Santana do Livramento, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, by analysing husbandry practices applied in 101 herds and by surveying B. bovis antibodies in cattle approximately 11 months old (by ELISA). Herds whose seroprevalence ranged between 15 and 80% ...

Abstract

Critical path studies on integrated control of Anaplasma marginale, Babesia bigemina and B. argentina [B. bovis] and their vectors (Boophilus microplus) in association with over 8000 cattle in Cuba, are described. The Criollo-Zebu cattle were less likely to be infected than Holstein-Zebu.

Abstract

The extent of tick infestations of livestock and the measures available for their control are reviewed and discussed with reference also to disease pathogens transmitted by ticks (Theileria parva, transmitted by Rhipicephalus appendiculatus; T. annulata, transmitted by Hyalomma spp.; Babesia bovis ...

Abstract

Models of the epidemiology of babesiasis were tested over a 5-year period in 4 breeding cattle herds under different regimes of tick control. It was concluded that in south-eastern Queensland, any form of tick control would exacerbate the situation, and that herds under conditions of reduced tick...
