Abstract

Immunization against diseases caused by Theileria parva is reviewed, in the following sections: an introduction; the history of immunization; the aim of immunization, and which categories of cattle should be immunized; the infection and treatment method of immunization (currently the only...

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

510 cattle were immunized using T. parva (Boleni) stock (Bolvac-1) without concurrent chemotherapy with tetracycline on 2 farms in Zimbabwe, both of which had a history of theileriosis. The stabilate had been titrated in Friesian calves to determine a 50% protective dose (PD50) and 2 or 3 (PD50s)...

Abstract

A new application of an optimization tool, dynamic programming (DP), is described to model the economics of animal health control programmes. To demonstrate the value of this technique, a model is applied to determine optimal net benefits of controlling East Coast fever (ECF) in Malawi Zebu cattle...

Abstract

The p67 sporozoite antigen of T. parva was fused to the C-terminal secretion signal of Escherichia coli haemolysin and expressed in secreted form by attenuated S. dublin aroA strain SL5631. The recombinant p67 antigen was detected in the supernatant of transformed bacterial cultures. Immunization...

Abstract

Immunization by the infection and treatment method using the Katete strain of Theileria parva is currently the most efficient prophylactic technique to control East Coast fever (ECF) in the endemic areas of the Eastern Province of Zambia. The maintenance of the cold chain in liquid nitrogen up to...

Abstract

One ml of a mild Theileria parva isolate was inoculated sc into each of 23 Friesian cattle, anterior to the left prescapular lymph node. The cattle developed low macroschizont parasitoses but no clinical reactions were observed. On day 35 pi, 22 of the 23 cattle were divided into 5 groups and...

Abstract

Two experiments were carried out to identify the target population of cattle for immunization against East Coast fever (ECF) using the infection-and-treatment method. Firstly, a sentinel-calf study was used to determine the age window for ECF immunisation by determining ages at clinical detection...
