Abstract

The paper reviews the infectivity, cross-immunization experiments, and cattle vaccination of Zimbabwean cattle-derived Theileria parva (Boleni) sporozoite stabilates produced at the Central Veterinary Laboratory (CVL) in Harare between 1980 and 2003. The Boleni stock was first isolated in July 1978 ...

Abstract

East Coast fever (ECF), caused by Theileria parva, is considered to be one of the main constraints against livestock development in eastern Africa. This report gives an overview of the aetiology, parasite life cycle, pathogenesis, pathology, diagnosis, epidemiology and transmission, and control of...

Abstract

Considerable losses in eastern, central and southern Africa are caused by East Coast fever, caused by Theileria parva. Annual estimates are $168 million including a mortality of 1.1 million cattle. The disease is conventionally controlled by acaricides and chemotherapy, but these methods of control ...

Abstract

In East Africa, East Coast fever (ECF) is currently considered to be a complex of diseases, which is caused by 3 species of Theileria. T. parva, which causes the classical form of ECF, is transmitted between cattle by Rhipicephalus appendiculatus Neum. T. lawrencei is also transmitted by R....

Abstract

Four experiments were carried out in which cattle immunized with three cryopreserved stabilates, Theileria parva (Muguga), T. parva (Kiambu 5) and T. lawrencei (Serengeti transformed) and simultaneously treated with a single dose of long acting tetracycline were challenged with field isolates of T. ...

Abstract

In the first of two experiments performed, 29 animals were immunized by chemoprophylaxis against either a combination of three theilerial strains, Theileria parva (Muguga), T. parva (Kiambu 5) and T. lawrencei (Serengeti "transformed"), or against one or two elements of the combination separately,...

Abstract

Groups of cattle were immunized (by using chemoprophylaxis or therapy) against T. parva (Muguga), and were challenged with five recently isolated strains of Theileria. Two of the strains caused mild or inapparent reactions in the immunized animals, and three caused considerable reactions. None of...

Abstract

Cross-immunity trials were carried out on cattle which were immunized against theileriosis either by chemoprophylaxis or by sublethal challenge. In the first of two experiments, animals were immunized against either one of two strains of T. lawrencei. They were then challenged with the Kenya "KB5"...

Abstract

Methods of immunising cattle against Theileria lawrencei were evaluated with the aid of a method that is described, using challenge in a paddock infested with Rhipicephalus appendiculatus Neum. and grazed by African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) (in which infection is widespread in East Africa). It had ...

Abstract

During July 1956 to December 1957 more scientific information was published in scientific journals and consequently there is less in the body of the report. Reorganization has resulted in transfer to E.A.V.R.O. of all research on animals breeding, physiology and metabolism and of the transfer to...
