Abstract

The susceptibility of G. longipennis, G. brevipalpis and G. morsitans centralis to various strains of Trypanosoma vivax, T. congolense and T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] was investigated in the laboratory. Cattle and goats were infected with the trypanosomes and the tsetse fed from them during the...

Abstract

Susceptibility of African buffalo [Synceros caffer], eland [Tragelaphus oryx], waterbuck [Kobus ellipsiprymnus], N'Dama and Boran cattle to sequential Glossina morsitans centralis-transmitted infections of Trypanosoma congolense, T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] and T. vivax was compared, and their...

Abstract

Six Boran cattle were infected with the drug-resistant T. congolense IL 3338. At the first peak of parasitaemia different groups of 200 teneral G. m. centralis were fed once on each animal, just before treatment with diminazene aceturate at a dose of 3.5 mg/kg body weight. Thereafter, all animals...

Abstract

To determine the duration after treatment of cattle with diminazene aceturate (Berenil) that the drug influences the tsetse infectivity and transmissibility of a drug-resistant T. congolense, 6 Boran zebu cattle were infected with T. congolense IL 3338 via the bites of G. morsitans centralis. At...

Abstract

A survey of the species of Glossina on an OGAPROV cattle ranch in Gabon was undertaken as from October 1983 using biconical traps. Three species were caught, G. tabaniformis, G. palpalis palpalis and G. nashi. The average relative density (number of flies per trap per day) of the commonest species...

Abstract

Teneral G. morsitans centralis were fed on the flanks of the African buffalo (Synceros caffer), N'Dama (Bos taurus) or Boran (B. indicus) cattle infected with T. congolense. The infected tsetse were maintained on rabbits and on day 30 after the infected feed, the surviving tsetse were dissected to...

Abstract

The residual chemoprophylactic action of Samorin (isometamidium chloride), injected into 18-month-old Boran cattle at 1 mg/kg body weight, was tested by exposing groups of 4 animals at monthly intervals for 5 months to 5 adults of Glossina morsitans centralis infected with Trypanosoma congolense IL ...

Abstract

The cycle of transmission of Trypanosoma rhodesiense (Etat 1/10 clone) by Glossina morsitans morsitans from a bushbuck (Tragelaphus scriptus), experimentally infected with 1 × 103 trypanosomes to a Boran steer and a goat and, by tsetse from the infected domestic ruminants back to a bushbuck was...

Abstract

Vector competence of G. pallidipes for pathogenic Trypanosoma species was compared to that of G. morsitans centralis. Cattle or goats were the hosts used to infect teneral tsetse; rabbits were used to maintain tsetse which were dissected on day 30. Mean infection rates of G. pallidipes and G. m....

Abstract

Transmission studies were carried out using 2 stocks of T. vivax isolated in 1968 and 1972 from bovines in Teso District, Uganda. Parasitaemia was low and transient in rabbits and rats; it persisted for relatively longer in NMRI mice. Parasitaemia developed to a peak in a few A/J and Balb/c mice;...
