Abstract

Finding appropriate ways of dealing with the problem of tsetse and trypanosomosis will be an important component of efforts to alleviate poverty in Africa. This article reviews the history of economic analyses of the problem, starting with the use of cost to guide choice of technique for tsetse...

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

The sensitivity and specificity of the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was compared with the haematocrit centrifugation technique (HCT) and the mini-anion-exchange centrifugation technique (m-AECT) for the diagnosis of trypanosome infections in livestock. In a cross-sectional study, 486 cattle from ...

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...

Abstract

A multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) procedure to amplify 18S ribosomal RNA gene fragments of Cryptosporidium. spp. was developed. Amplified DNA fragments of the expected size were obtained which were specific for C. parvum/C. wrairi (422 bp), C. baileyi (1106 bp) and C. muris (1346 bp). C....

Abstract

Amprolium is licensed as a coccidiostat in animal feeds, alone or with ethopabate. The present European Communities method of detection in feeds and food is based on photometric detection of a colour complex formed with potassium hexacyanoferrate(III). Limit of detection is 40 mg/kg. A new method...

Abstract

Blagg's method, Willis' salt flotation, McMaster's and direct examination using Lugol solution were compared for their efficiency in detecting Giardia in faeces. Blagg's method performed best, identifying Giardia in 50% of 200 goats, 20% of 47 sheep and 5% of 40 calves tested. Lugol solution tested ...
