Abstract

Tick-borne diseases cause significant livestock losses worldwide. In Russia, information concerning single or mixed infections with different Anaplasma, Theileria and Babesia species in cattle is very limited. This study was conducted to determine the level of co-infection with protozoan pathogens...

Abstract

Ticks are involved in the transmission of many public health and veterinary important pathogens. Although tick-borne pathogens are widely distributed in South Africa, information on tick-pathogen relationship needs to be updated particularly using modern molecular techniques. This study used PCR...

Abstract

Species of Theileria are tick-borne hemoprotozoan parasites of ruminants that can cause severe clinical disease. In this study, blood samples were obtained from 91 wild sika deer in various districts in Hokkaido, Japan. Samples were tested using a PCR assay designed to amplify a full-length major...

Abstract

Theileria annulata is an intracellular parasite that causes active and latent forms of bovine theileriosis. Diagnosis of the disease is primarily based on traditional methods such as microscopy, however, PCR based methods have proven to be superior in the absence of clear disease symptoms. However, ...

Abstract

Since 2012, New Zealand has suffered from an epidemic of infectious bovine anaemia associated with T. orientalis (Ikeda), an obligate intracellular protozoan parasite of cattle. Despite widespread agreement that T. orientalis (Ikeda) infection has impacted beef and dairy farming in New Zealand...

Abstract

East Coast fever (ECF) caused by Theileria parva kills cattle in East, Central and Southern Africa leading to significant economic losses. Vaccination is used as a control strategy against ECF and is presently dependent on deliberate infection with live sporozoites and simultaneous treatment with a ...

Abstract

Bovine babesiosis and theileriosis are fatal tick borne haemoparasites of vertebrates imposing serious constraints on health and productivity of livestock. Additionally, the recovered animals become persistent carriers and play a significant role in disease epidemiology. The present investigation...
