Abstract

In field studies, Glossina spp. feed more successfully on cattle infected with Trypanosoma congolense than on cattle infected with T. vivax or uninfected cattle. Here we describe the first laboratory investigation of this phenomenon. In the first experiment, caged Glossina pallidipes were fed for 1 ...

Abstract

The relationship between serum concentrations of isometamidium chloride (Samorin®) and protection against tsetse challenge with 2 populations of Trypanosoma congolense was investigated in Boran (Bos indicus) cattle, using an isometamidium-ELISA. The drug (1.0 mg/kg) was administered by deep...

Abstract

The development of improved control strategies for Glossina-transmitted bovine trypanosomiasis is discussed. The use of sterile insect release (SIR) and of attractive insecticide-impregnated targets may replace insecticidal spraying. It is considered that chemotherapy must continue to play a role...

Abstract

The type of blood that would provide optimum nutrition to G. m. centralis and the effect of maintaining infected tsetse on fresh defibrinated bovine blood through membranes upon their infection rates of Trypanosoma vivax, T. congolense and T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] were investigated. It was...

Abstract

The exploitation of trypanotolerant cattle and their use in the integrated control of trypanosomiasis is discussed with regard to the possible use of such a system to collect data on the cost-effectiveness, efficacy of control measures and livestock production in areas with East Coast Fever.

Abstract

Fifteen Boran cattle from a trypanosomiasis-free area were injected intramuscularly with isometamidium chloride at a dose of 1 mg/kg bwt. Thereafter, the cattle were challenged at monthly intervals with Glossina morsitans centralis infected with one of 3 populations of Trypanosoma congolense (IL...

Abstract

Four Boran cattle were infected with Trypanosoma brucei using Glossina morsitans centralis and were left untreated throughout the experimental period of 18 months. During this period, sequential blood samples were collected and examined for the presence of antitrypanosome antibodies and their...
