Abstract

A study was conducted to develop a Trypanosoma vivax (T. vivax) specific PCR based on the T. vivax proline racemase (TvPRAC) gene. Forward and reverse primers were designed that bind at 764-783 bp and 983-1002 bp of the gene. To assess its specificity, TvPRAC PCR was conducted on DNA extracted from ...

Abstract

The sensitivity of LAMP, PCR and microscopy to detect Theileria spp. and Trypanosoma congolense in field-derived bovine blood samples from Tanzania was evaluated and compared. No parasites were detected by microscopy. Furthermore, no bovine Theileria spp. were detected by LAMP and PCR from all the...

Abstract

Ten animals died within 4 days on a recently established dairy farm with 211 animals near Morogoro, in August 1992. Clinical examination revealed that 14 out of 15 sick animals were depressed, pyrexic, anorexic and had variable degrees of respiratory distress and enlarged lymph nodes. East Coast...

Abstract

The influence of TNF and IFN-γ was examined in theileriosis of cattle and trypanosomiasis of dogs. 2 West African pariah dogs were infected with Trypanosoma congolense and 2 were infected with T. brucei. Those infected with T. congolense survived whereas those infected with T. brucei died after 4...

Abstract

The incidence of haemoparasites and their effect on haematological parameters were investigated in 6 breeds of cattle in Maiduguri, Nigeria. Blood from 50 infected and 50 uninfected cattle from each of the Kuri (KR), white Fulani (WF), red Fulani (RF), Biu red (BR), Wadara (WA) and Sokoto Gudali...

Abstract

Uninfected cattle, or cattle chronically infected with Trypanosoma congolense, were immunized by the infection and treatment method against East Coast fever (ECF; Theileria parva infection). Chronic trypanosomiasis did not prevent cattle mounting an effective immunological response to ECF...

Abstract

Two experiments were carried out in which trypanosome-free cattle, or cattle chronically infected with Trypanosoma congolense were immunized by the infection and treatment method against East Coast Fever (ECF, Theileria parva infection). In the first experiment, 5 pairs of cattle were used; 3 pairs ...
