Abstract

Avermectins and milbemycins belong to a family of compounds called macrocyclic lactones (ML) and are highly used as antiparasitic agents in the treatment of cattle for control of gastrointestinal nematodes, ticks and myiasis. In Brazil, there are five substances (ivermectin, abamectin, doramectin,...

Abstract

The Babesia bovis and B. bigemina apicomplexan protozoa in conjunction with the rickettsia Anaplasma marginale are intraerythrocytic pathogens that are responsible for the most prevalent and costly tick borne diseases (TBD's) of cattle worldwide. These organisms are historically associated as they...

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

The development of a polymerase chain reaction using specific primers which amplify, only in Theileria lestoquardi (= T. hirci)-infected Hyalomma, a 785 bp fragment of the gene that codes for a 30 kDa merozoite surface protein is described. The sensitivity of this test and its application to the...

Abstract

A multiplex PCR/DNA probe assay was used to monitor Babesia bovis, B. bigemina and Anaplasma marginale infection in cattle introduced to a Boophilus microplus-infested area in Veracruz, Mexico. Eight intact, 18-month-old, cross-bred beef cattle (4 naive, Group A; 4 Babesia species - premunized,...

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

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

The author reviews methods of monitoring the epidemiology of tick-borne diseases in livestock in Africa, primarily from the perspective of a model maker. The following subjects are discussed: the incidence and prevalence of tick-borne diseases in host populations, the sampling methods used to...
