Abstract

Background: East Coast fever (ECF) is a devastating disease of cattle and a significant constraint to improvement of livestock production in sub-Saharan Africa. The protozoan parasite causing ECF, Theileria parva, undergoes obligate sexual stage development in its tick vector Rhipicephalus...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of the study was to determine the species spectrum of ixodid ticks that infest horses and donkeys in South Africa and to identify those species that act as vectors of disease to domestic livestock. Ticks were collected opportunistically from 391 horses countrywide by their owners or grooms, ...

Abstract

Although diverse tick-borne pathogens (TBPs) are endemic to East Africa, with recognized impact on human and livestock health, their diversity and specific interactions with tick and vertebrate host species remain poorly understood in the region. In particular, the role of reptiles in TBP...

Abstract

Piroplasmosis caused by different tick-borne hemoprotozoan parasites of the genera Theileria and Babesia is among the most economically important infections of domestic ruminants in sub-Saharan Africa. A survey for piroplasm infection was conducted in three locations in Northern Ethiopia. Of 525...

Abstract

Previous studies characterizing the Theileria parva p67 gene in East Africa revealed two alleles. Cattle-derived isolates associated with East Coast fever (ECF) have a 129 bp deletion in the central region of the p67 gene (allele 1), compared to buffalo-derived isolates with no deletion (allele 2). ...

Abstract

The tick-borne protozoan parasite Theileria parva causes East Coast fever (ECF), a severe lymphoproliferative disease of cattle that is a major constraint to the improvement of livestock in eastern, central and southern Africa. Studies in cattle experimentally infected with T. parva have shown that ...

Abstract

A parasite, isolated from some unknown wild animal, was transmitted through ten passages in high-grade cattle by Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and R. kochi. It proved to be a strain of Theileria parva of low virulence. Only 25% of infected cattle died and the mortality rate was directly related to...

Abstract

East Coast fever (Theileria parva) was eradicated from one area of Tanganyika by compulsory weekly dipping in BHC. Political circumstances in 1957 led to the abandonment of dipping, but Rhipicephalus appendiculatus did not reinvade as rapidly as anticipated. The high mortality in undipped herds...

Abstract

The object of this article is to point out several characteristics of the disease which seem to indicate that it cannot be considered purely as a protozoan-disease. During Theiler's experiments in 1912 on immunization against E.C.F. with spleen and lymph-node emulsions, it was observed that in some ...

Abstract

P. discusses the validity of theilerial species affecting cattle, and points out that it is now admitted that Theileria parva is inoculable with blood containing blue bodies, that blue bodies occur in Th. mutans infection, and that the only satisfactory proof of the distinct nature of theilerial...
