Abstract

This paper summarizes the results of a study conducted in Kenya in 1988 on the best method for assessing the cost to a government of producing and delivering the infection-and- treatment vaccine against East Coast fever in cattle in the field. The costs of developing and delivering the vaccine were ...

Abstract

Theileria parva-naïve Friesian (Bos taurus), Boran (Bos indicus) and Maasai Zebu steers (B. indicus) were infected with a T. parva sporozoite stabilate dose which had previously been shown to induce an estimated 50% mortality rate in Boran cattle. All the cattle developed patent infections with no...

Abstract

A comparison of mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and packed cell volume (PCV) was made between cattle undergoing lethal and non-lethal reactions following experimental infections with the apicomplexan protozoa, Theileria parva Katete. This work confirmed that anaemia occurs in infected animals....

Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine whether Bos taurus cattle differ form Bos indicus in their susceptibility to infection with the Muguga stabilate of Theileria parva and in their resistance to the resultant disease. Ten Friesians (B. taurus), ten improved Borans (B. indicus), ten...

Abstract

Immunization of cattle in Burundi, Central Africa, against Theileria parva is discussed briefly. Infection-and-treatment immunization was introduced in 1981 using a combination of 3 local isolates and tetracycline treatment in local Ankole (Bos indicus) cattle, that have natural resistance against ...
