Abstract

African animal trypanosomiasis, or Nagana, is a debilitating and economically costly disease with a major impact on animal health in sub-Saharan Africa. Trypanosoma vivax, one of the principal trypanosome species responsible for the disease, infects a wide host range including cattle, goats, horses ...

Abstract

The buffy coat/dark ground phase contrast technique (BCT) and an ELISA were used to assess the trypanosome infection status of 32 N'dama cattle in the Gambia, aged 19-28 months, exposed to natural challenge of Glossina morsitans submorsitans and G. palpalis gambiensis. Prior to the start of the...

Abstract

This paper describes a supplementary analysis of the results of a previously reported study [Acta Tropica (1998) 71, 57-71] of the susceptibility to trypanosomiasis of 12 N'Dama cattle, 12 Gobra zebu and 12 crossbreds exposed to natural infection (with Trypanosoma brucei, T. congolense or T. vivax) ...

Abstract

Twenty-five N'dama bulls in Gambia aged 3-4 years and previously primed with trypanosome infections through natural exposure over more than one year (August 1995 to November 1996) were divided into 5 groups of 5 randomly selected animals. Group 1 was challenged with Trypanosoma congolense, group 2...

Abstract

Little is known about the time-to-first detection and the time difference (TD) between first parasitological and first serological diagnosis of Trypanosoma spp. infections under natural infection challenge in cattle. The objective of our study was to estimate these measures of 'longitudinal...

Abstract

Susceptibility to trypanosome infections (transmitted by Glossina morsitans submorsitans and G. palpalis gambiensis) and tick (Boophilus geigyi, B. decoloratus, Hyalomma truncatum, H. marginatum rufipes, Rhipicephalus senegalensis and Amblyomma variegatum) infestations was assessed in 51 N'Dama, 48 ...

Abstract

30 zebu cattle and 30 N'Dama cattle of the same age were kept under traditional management conditions of village herds. The incidence of trypanosomiasis was higher in zebus than in N'Damas (6.2 vs. 1.9%; P<0.001). Antibody titres measured by the immunofluorescence antibody test showed that zebus were better able to produce antibodies against Trypanosoma vivax than N'Damas, and that both breeds produced antibodies against T. congolense ...

Abstract

The severity of the trypanosomiasis problem in a particular location is traditionally assessed in terms of a challenge index - the product of some measure of tsetse abundance and infection rate - which is assumed to be proportional to the force of infection between herds and among individuals...

Abstract

From data on productivity characteristics and trypanosome prevalence obtained during a 3-year period by monthly examination of 3000 N'dama cattle in villages in Gambia, data on milk yield for 6-7 months on 60 cows which were known to have been naturally infected with Trypanosoma congolense or T....

Abstract

In The Gambia ∼2000 head of N'dama cattle kept in 38 herds at 6 study sites comprising 8 villages were monitored monthly for incidence of disease and various production characteristics for 2-4 years. Blood examination showed Trypanosoma congolense and T. vivax to be prevalent, while strongylid-type ...
