Abstract

Background: Human and animal African trypanosomiases impose a large economic and health burden in their endemic regions. Large strides have been made in the control of human African trypanosomiasis (HAT), yet these efforts have largely focused on the non-zoonotic form of the disease. Using a...

Abstract

A participatory epidemiological (PE) study was conducted with livestock keepers in Moroto and Kotido districts, Karamoja Region, Uganda, between October and December 2013 to determine the management options and relative importance of tick-borne diseases (TBDs) amongst transhumant zebu cattle. Data...

Abstract

The role played by domestic animals in the transmission of gambiense Human African Trypanosomosis remains uncertain. Northwest Uganda is endemic for Trypanosoma brucei gambiense. Of the 3267 blood samples from domestic animals in four counties examined by hematocrit centrifugation technique (HCT),...

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

457 serum samples taken from cattle kept under moderate tsetse challenge in Mukono County, Uganda, (79 of them with confirmed trypanosomiasis) and 86 sera from cattle in Germany were tested for Trypanosoma antibodies using an ELISA with antigen obtained from blood stream form (BSF) of T. brucei, or ...

Abstract

Blood films from 498 cattle with clinical symptoms of trypanosomiasis revealed T. vivax in only 24 cattle, T. vivax plus T. congolense in two, and T. theileri in one. The frequency of positive blood films was greater in the rainy season. Mouse inoculation with blood from 50 cattle with suspected or ...

Abstract

The section on Entomology in this report contains accounts of studies in Uganda aimed at discovering a suitable regime for the mass rearing of Glossina pallidipes Aust. It was found that the optimum age for mating of females was 7-9 days after emergence, that males may be used from 10 days after...

Abstract

P. discussed the importance of certain species of Stomoxys in Uganda, the possibility that these species may be responsible for the mechamical transmission of trypanosomiasis, and the effects of severe biting of Stomoxys on milk yield and body weight in cattle.
A satisfactory method was described...
