Abstract

Animal Trypanosomiasis (AT) is one of the most important problems in the Colombian livestock industry reducing its production around 30%. Caribbean and Orinoquia regions play a significant role in the development of this industry, having about 6.9 million cattle and 113,000 buffaloes. Considering...

Abstract

Surra is a zoonotic disease caused by Trypanosoma evansi, affecting the health and production of the livestock significantly. There are several methods to diagnose this disease, which have different principles, sensitivity, and specificity. Among them, the serological techniques using T. evansi as...

Abstract

The diagnosis of animal trypanosomiasis in field samples is currently based on clinical suspicion and less frequently on traditional parasitological methods characterized by their very low sensitivity, especially in the sub-acute and chronic phase of the infection. Molecular tools such as...

Abstract

Because of the limitations of direct methods for the diagnosis of trypanosomes in small quantities, molecular methods which allow identification of the species with a small amount of parasite DNA were analyzed. A study was conducted at the Carimagua Experimental Station, located in the flat high...

Abstract

Animal trypanosome species of economical importance in South America include T. vivax and T. evansi. Both species are described in Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, French Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela. In Argentina and Guyana, only T. evansi and T. vivax are found, respectively. Our studies on T. ...

Abstract

Results from a study between 1982 and 1989 of 104 farms in the tropical lowlands of the Atlantic coast of Colombia confirmed that T. vivax was widely but unevenly distributed within the study area and that incidence ranged from sporadic transmission to localised epidemics in which virtually all...

Abstract

In Colombian cattle, T. vivax occurs as an enzootic up to 900 m above sea-level; at higher altitudes its sporadic occurrence is attributed to cattle movement from enzootic areas and to the presence of bloodsucking insects. The outbreak described occurred at a latitude between 5-6° north and...
