Abstract

In field studies, Glossina spp. feed more successfully on cattle infected with Trypanosoma congolense than on cattle infected with T. vivax or uninfected cattle. Here we describe the first laboratory investigation of this phenomenon. In the first experiment, caged Glossina pallidipes were fed for 1 ...

Abstract

The relationship between serum concentrations of isometamidium chloride (Samorin®) and protection against tsetse challenge with 2 populations of Trypanosoma congolense was investigated in Boran (Bos indicus) cattle, using an isometamidium-ELISA. The drug (1.0 mg/kg) was administered by deep...

Abstract

The susceptibility of G. longipennis, G. brevipalpis and G. morsitans centralis to various strains of Trypanosoma vivax, T. congolense and T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] was investigated in the laboratory. Cattle and goats were infected with the trypanosomes and the tsetse fed from them during the...

Abstract

The type of blood that would provide optimum nutrition to G. m. centralis and the effect of maintaining infected tsetse on fresh defibrinated bovine blood through membranes upon their infection rates of Trypanosoma vivax, T. congolense and T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] were investigated. It was...

Abstract

Fifteen Boran cattle from a trypanosomiasis-free area were injected intramuscularly with isometamidium chloride at a dose of 1 mg/kg bwt. Thereafter, the cattle were challenged at monthly intervals with Glossina morsitans centralis infected with one of 3 populations of Trypanosoma congolense (IL...

Abstract

Glossina morsitans centralis infected with metacyclic T. congolense were allowed to feed on cattle which were treated with Berenil 17 days later. 13 days after treatment they were given an homologous challenge (by tsetse fly bite). In the first experiment, 11 N'Dama cattle (3 to 4 years old) were...

Abstract

Susceptibility of African buffalo [Synceros caffer], eland [Tragelaphus oryx], waterbuck [Kobus ellipsiprymnus], N'Dama and Boran cattle to sequential Glossina morsitans centralis-transmitted infections of Trypanosoma congolense, T. brucei brucei [T. brucei] and T. vivax was compared, and their...

Abstract

The sensitivity and specificity of the FAO/IAEA antigen-ELISA kits for diagnosis of bovine trypanosomiasis were investigated using sera from Boran cattle (Bos indicus) in Kenya experimentally infected by tsetse challenge with cloned populations of Trypanosoma congolense (3 populations from...

Abstract

Local skin reactions (termed chancres) were elicited in susceptible cattle and goats after challenge with Glossina morsitans morsitans infected with Trypanosoma congolense, T. brucei or T. vivax. The development of the chancre and the detection of parasites within the lesion preceded the appearance ...

Abstract

Relatively simple protocols employing non-radioactive DNA probes were used for the detection of African trypanosomes (Trypanosoma congolense, T. simiae, T. brucei) in the blood of mammalian hosts and the saliva of live tsetse flies (Glossina spp.). In combination with the polymerase chain reaction, ...
