Abstract

This study builds upon earlier work mapping the potential benefits from bovine trypanosomosis control and analysing the costs of different approaches. Updated costs were derived for five intervention techniques: trypanocides, targets, insecticide-treated cattle, aerial spraying and the release of...

Abstract

A number of Theileria annulata genes have been cloned, sequenced and expressed, including TaSP, TaD, TaSE and TamtHSP70. Several recent publications document the suitability of the recombinant TaSP protein for use in the diagnosis of tropical theileriosis. To investigate whether TaD, TaSE or...

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

An account is given of a deterministic computer model (T3HOST) which models changes in populations of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus induced by ecological factors. All rates of change are predicted from climatic values and density-dependent relationships. The workings of T3HOST are described with...

Abstract

Tests for pesticides that are used in South Africa against ecto- and endoparasites of cattle are described. Efficacy tests are performed in vitro during the initial screening stages, and in vivo at the more advanced stages of development of a compound. Parasites of cattle against which such tests...

Abstract

Information is given on the use of the CLIMEX model in the management of ticks (Rhipicephalus appendiculatus, Boophilus microplus and Amblyomma variegatum) and tick-borne diseases in Africa, especially Kenya and Zambia. Its specific use in the analysis of the value of quarantine, the prediction of...
