Abstract

Theileria parva is a tick-transmitted protozoan parasite that causes a disease called East Coast fever (ECF) in cattle. This important tick borne-disease (TBD) causes significant economic losses in cattle in many sub-Saharan countries, including Tanzania. Cattle immunization using Muguga cocktail...

Abstract

Objective: Bovine piroplasmoses are tick-borne protozoan diseases caused by parasites of the genus Theileria and Babesia. The aim of this work was to study the epizootic situation of babesiosis in the cattle population in eastern Poland and possibly to determine which species of protozoa infects...

Abstract

Tropical theileriosis, a tick-borne hemoprotozoan disease caused by Theileria annulata and transmitted by Hyalomma spp., is one of the most devastating blood parasites affecting crossbred cattle. The present study is aimed to compare direct blood PCR with microscopy for detection of theileriosis in ...

Abstract

Bovine piroplasmosis is a tick-borne disease caused by apicomplexan hemoparasites of the genera Theileria and Babesia. This study was carried out to assess the presence and frequency of piroplasm parasites in apparently healthy cattle in Kyrgyzstan. A total of 454 blood samples were collected from...

AbstractFull Text

Ticks are the most important external parasites of cattle and are known to transmit more pathogens than any other group of arthropods worldwide. About 80% of the world cattle population is at risk of ticks and tick-borne diseases, causing a global annual loss of $US22-30 billion. In Africa, the...

Abstract

Babesia and Theileria are two protozoa belonging to the phylum Apicomplexa, which result in babesiosis and theileriosis in different hosts, cause considerable problems in domestic animals and as a consequence economic losses. These two diseases are transmitted by ticks. This survey was carried out...
