CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Trypanotolerance.

This chapter discusses the indicators, genetic factors, stability, biological basis and underlying mechanisms of trypanotolerance in cattle and zebus. The exploitation of trypanotolerant breeds for sustainable livestock production (e.g., milk production), and the other attributes of trypanotolerant ...

Abstract

Recent epidemiological studies carried out in East Africa have indicated that some B. indicus cattle breeds such as the Orma Boran and Maasai Zebu have a degree of trypanotolerance worth exploitation by their introduction into trypanosomiasis endemic areas where other cattle breeds cannot survive....

Abstract

The evidence for genetic variation in resistance to infection with nematodes comes from 3 sources: variation among breeds, variation within breeds, and the identification of genes contributing to the variation. For this review, each of those sources of evidence are illustrated with a different...

Abstract

This paper reports on the main effector immune mechanisms governing resistance against ticks and tickborne microorganisms (TBMs). The cellular immune response appears more effective and stable than humoral immunity in modulating resistance to ticks and TBMs. Similarities between the immune...

Abstract

TrypsChemo is a computer-based expert system that attempts to aid the application of veterinary knowledge to disease management. It has been designed to maximize the effectiveness and cost efficiency of the different trypanocidal drug regimens currently available for prophylaxis and treatment of...

Abstract

The current state of knowledge on the response of cattle to infection with Trypanosoma congolense, T. vivax and T. brucei is reviewed with particular reference to specific antitrypanosome immune response, relevent recent findings and ideas. The main sections of this review are: disease produced in ...

Abstract

This review covers: options for trypanosomosis control; trypanotolerant livestock as an option for sustainable livestock production; understanding trypanotolerance; from understanding to better exploitation (relation between criteria of trypanotolerance and livestock performance, approaches to...

Abstract

In dogs experimentally infected with T. brucei, pathology was largely due to tissue invasion and the histopathology of the heart and CNS are described. The heart showed variable degrees of degeneration and necrosis of myocardial fibres and, in some dogs, a necrotizing vasculitis of the coronary...
