Abstract

Five different East Coast fever (ECF)-control strategies (involving ECF immunization by the infection-and-treatment method) were tested in groups of traditionally managed Sanga cattle in the Central Province of Zambia over a period of 2.5 years. Two groups were under intensive Rhipicephalus...

Abstract

Tick and tick-borne diseases, especially East Coast fever, caused by Theileria parva, are amongst the most important factors limiting cattle production in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. In the past, they have been controlled mainly by the use of acaricides to kill ticks. Immunization has...

Abstract

Three different areas in Kenya (Limuru, in which many cattle have already been vaccinated against Theileria parva, and Kitale and Kakamega, where cattle have not so far been vaccinated) were included in the study. Genus- and species-specific primers were used to test for the presence of Theileria...

Abstract

In Zambia, theileriosis manifests itself in the form of Corridor disease, caused by Theileria parva lawrencei, and East Coast fever, caused by T. parva parva. After a brief account of the history of theileriosis in Zambia, this review covers epidemiology, the current situation (1991-1992) and...

Abstract

A clinical trial, comparing East Coast fever (ECF) control strategies in 5 different groups of traditionally managed Sanga cattle (44-49 animals per herd), was conducted in Zambia over 2.5 years between 1992 and 1995. Two groups were kept under intensive tick control by weekly cypermethrin...

Abstract

The main objective of the reported field trial was to compare different East Coast fever (ECF) (Theileria parva) control strategies for their efficacy, effect on cattle productivity and cost-effectiveness. 5 strategies were tested in groups of traditionally managed Sanga cattle over a period of 2.5 ...

Abstract

A computer spreadsheet model was used to estimate the losses and the benefits of theileriosis control by the infection and treatment method of immunization in Africa. The parameters of the model included national size and structure of cattle herds, the estimated impact of the disease in terms of...

Abstract

Over 500 cattle of all age groups on 2 farms in Zimbabwe were immunized against theileriosis using the "infection and treatment" method, and disease prevalence and productivity was assessed during a period of 18 months. The immunizing stock, Theileria parva (Boleni), was isolated in Zimbabwe. None...

Abstract

Groups of cattle of 4 different cross-breeds (Ankole × Friesian, Ankole × Brown-Swiss, Ankole × Guernsey, Ankole × Sahiwal) plus a group of pure Ankole cattle were immunized against tick-borne diseases: East Coast Fever, using a Theileria parva trivalent vaccine, and anaplasmosis, babesiosis and,...
