Abstract

Theileria parva bovis (a protozoan causing January disease of cattle in Zimbabwe) was transmitted experimentally by nymphs of the tick Rhipicephalus appendiculatus to 6 of 14 cattle. Animals either became seriously ill or did not become infected. Attempts to induce mild or inapparent infection by...

Abstract

In two trials, T. parva bovis (which causes 'January disease' of cattle in Zimbabwe) produced a carrier state, over the 7-12 months after infection. Very severe clinical reactions were caused by infections from small numbers (29-43) of adult Rhipicephalus appendiculatus ticks, which had engorged on ...
