Abstract

This article on the involvement of wildlife in Theileria infections of cattle in East Africa includes a report that attempts to revert T. parva 'transformed' into T. parva 'non-transformed' have been only partly successful. After buffalo were infected with the pathogen adapted to cattle, a very...

Abstract

Examination of routine diagnostic smears and those from the FAO recorded herd scheme showed that Theileria occurs in all Provinces of Zambia, especially in the Eastern and Northern Provinces where T. parva/T. lawrencei-like parasites probably contribute considerably to cattle mortality. The...
