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

A spreadsheet model was developed and used to estimate the total cost of immunizing cattle against East Coast fever (caused by Theileria parva) based on the infection-and-treatment method. Using data from an immunization trial carried out on 102 calves and yearlings on 64 farms in the Githunguri...

Abstract

Two experiments were carried out to identify the target population of cattle for immunization against East Coast fever (ECF) using the infection-and-treatment method. Firstly, a sentinel-calf study was used to determine the age window for ECF immunisation by determining ages at clinical detection...
