Abstract

The importance of theileriosis in livestock in Kenya is discussed. Five species of Theileria were recognized in cattle: T. parva, T. lawrencei, T. taurotragi, T. mutans, and T. velifera. Information on the current status of theileriosis, and tick (Rhipicephalus appendiculatus) control is given.

Abstract

The buffalo Syncerus caffer is one of the major wild hosts of Theileria parva lawrencei [T. lawrencei] and T. mutans in Kenya. Once infected with T. lawrencei they maintain the disease for life and can continually infect 10-90% of Rhipicephalus appendiculatus feeding on them, which in turn infect ...

Abstract

A pilot scheme to introduce immunization against theileriosis in cattle was undertaken on the Marula Ranch, Nakuru, Kenya. The acaricide control was unconventional, in that spraying was totally removed. The known tick-borne disease problems on this farm were: Corridor disease, caused by Theileria...

Abstract

Thirty Boran (Bos indicus) cattle, which had been immunized by infection with local strains of Theileria parva parva, T. p. lawrencei [T. lawrencei] and T. mutans and treated with parvaquone, were exposed to natural theileriosis challenge in 2 areas in Kenya. In both areas wild populations of the...
