Abstract

Many breeds of cattle with long histories of living in areas of endemic disease have evolved mechanisms that enable them to co-exist with specific pathogens.

Abstract

Traditional methods for the diagnosis of parasitic helminth infections of livestock have a number of limitations, such as the inability to distinguish mixed-species infections, a heavy reliance on technical experience and also sub-sampling errors. Some of these limitations may be overcome through...

Abstract

Over the past 10-15 years, we have witnessed a rapid increase in both the prevalence and magnitude of anthelmintic resistance, and this increase appears to be a worldwide phenomenon. Reports of anthelmintic resistance to multiple drugs in individual parasite species, and in multiple parasite...

Abstract

A pilot series of experiments was conducted in which cattle, sheep and goats were infected with sporozoites of a single stock of each of Theileria annulata and T. lestoquardi (syn T. hirci) from a laboratory colony of Hyalomma anatolicum anatolicum. Reciprocal cross-immunity and serological studies ...

Abstract

Three different areas in Kenya (Limuru, in which many cattle have already been vaccinated against Theileria parva, and Kitale and Kakamega, where cattle have not so far been vaccinated) were included in the study. Genus- and species-specific primers were used to test for the presence of Theileria...

Abstract

Molecular tools based on seminested restriction fragment length polymorphism polymerase chain reaction (RFLP-PCR) techniques were used to characterize field isolates of Theileria parva (collected between 1982 and 1997) in bloodspots dried on filter paper, to permit investigation of the extent and...
