Abstract

The dangers of tick-borne disease other than Theileria spp. are described. In the event of the success of a Theileria vaccine, any subsequent relaxation in tick control might result in outbreaks of other tick-borne disease, such as babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and heartwater. The implication of this...

Immunization against theileriosis in Africa. Proceedings of a Joint Workshop, 1-5 October 1984, Nairobi, Kenya, ILRAD & FAO., 1985, pp 118-122
Abstract

A pilot scheme to introduce immunization against theileriosis in cattle was undertaken on the Marula Ranch, Nakuru, Kenya. The acaricide control was unconventional, in that spraying was totally removed. The known tick-borne disease problems on this farm were: Corridor disease, caused by Theileria...

Abstract

The problems caused by ticks and tick-borne diseases (theileriosis, babesiosis, anaplasmosis and heartwater) for livestock, particularly cattle, on the African continent are discussed.

Abstract

Previous studies of theileriosis reveal that in 1956 a total of 1977 cases of East Coast Fever (ECF), 65 cases of babesiosis and 22 of anaplasmosis were recorded. In 1982 a total of 7525 ECF cases, 2875 babesiosis cases and 336 anaplasmosis cases were reported but these results must be treated with ...

Abstract

The disruption of the dipping of cattle in Zimbabwe for the control of tick vectors demonstrated the dangers of creating herds with little or no natural immunity to tick-borne diseases. It is known that immunity to the tick-borne diseases heartwater (caused by Cowdria ruminantium), African redwater ...

Abstract

During 1983, the Institute continued the study of trypanosomiasis and its vectors in Burkina Faso, including Glossina breeding programmes carried out in France and at Bobo-Dioulasso. Field trials were carried out, at Sidéradougou, of fly traps impregnated with deltamethrin and of the release of...

Abstract

Ethiopia probably carries the largest cattle population per head of human population of any country in Africa, an estimated 20.23 million cattle. Although undernutrition and disease cause serious losses, the heavy pressure of animals on the land has resulted in much overgrazing and subsequent soil...
