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...

Abstract

Friesian-Malawi Zebu cross-bred cattle, approximately 2 years old, were involved in immunization trials in Malawi in 1986 and 1987 against East Coast fever (ECF).

Abstract

A pilot scheme to introduce immunization against theileriosis in cattle was undertaken on the Marula Ranch, Nakuru, Kenya.
