epidemiological analysis of tick-borne diseases in zambia.tick-borne diseases are a constraint to livestock production in many developing countries as they cause high morbidity and mortality, which results in decreased production of meat, milk and other livestock by-products. the most important tick-borne diseases of livestock in sub-saharan africa are east coast fever (caused by theileria parva), babesiosis (caused by babesia bigemina and b. bovis), anaplasmosis (caused by anaplasma marginale) and heartwater (caused by ehrlichia ruminantium). despite ...201021106294

an outbreak of east coast fever in a herd of sanga cattle in lutale, central province of zambia.an outbreak of east coast fever (ecf) occurred in an experimental herd of sanga cattle maintained under a traditional rangeland grazing system at lutale, central province of zambia. two groups of cattle had been kept under different tick-control regimens for several years prior to the introduction of the disease and epidemiological information on the outbreak were recorded. weekly tick control was no sufficient to achieve full protection against theileria parva infection. systematic body tempera ...19989646337
effect of different east coast fever control strategies on disease incidence in traditionally managed sanga cattle in central province of zambia.a clinical trial, including five east coast fever (ecf) control strategies (involving tick control and/or immunisation by infection-and-treatment) in five different groups of traditionally managed sanga cattle, was conducted in central province of zambia over 2.5 years between 1992 and 1995. two groups were kept under intensive tick control by weekly acaricide treatment by hand spray; (one immunised and one non-immunised), two groups were under no tick control (one immunised and one non-immunise ...19989646334
effect of different east coast fever control strategies on fertility, milk production and weight gain of sanga cattle in the central province of zambia.five different east coast fever (ecf) (theileria parva infection) control strategies, based on tick control and/or ecf immunization, were tested in groups of traditionally managed sanga cattle in the central province of zambia over a period of 2.5 years. two groups were kept under intensive tick control (sprayed weekly), one group immunized and one non-immunized. two further groups were under no tick control, one group immunized and one non-immunized, while a fifth group was immunized against ec ...19979423269
