a survey for ilesha bunyamwera group virus antibodies in sera from domestic animals and humans in three ecological zones of nigeria.343 persons, 58 children and 285 adults, from three ecological zones: rainforest, savannah, and plateau were tested for the presence of ilesha virus n antibodies in their sera. neutralization tests were conducted in suckling mice using the constant virus--constant serum technique. 155 subjects (45%) had ilesha immunity: 22 children (38%) and 133 adults (44%). the highest percentage of positive sera was found in the savannah (54%), followed by the plateau and rainforest. a further analysis of the ...19751216686

development and survival of haemonchus contortus larvae on pasture at vom, plateau state, nigeria.the development and survival of the eggs of haemonchus contortus on pasture at vom were studied by depositing faecal pellets on grass plots over a period of 12 months. development and survival to the infective larvae occurred throughout the study except during the dry season months of december to april. more infective larvae were recovered from the herbage in june, july and august than in other months. the survival time of the infective larvae ranged from 2 weeks in october to 10 weeks in june, ...19902382405
strongyloides papillosus infestations of lambs in plateau state of nigeria.the frequent appearance of patent infestations of strongyloides papillosus in lambs under one week is observed, and it is suggested that either the short generation interval or pre-natal infection is the cause. pathogenic effects associated with heavy infestations in young lambs consisted of anorexia, loss of weight, diarrhoea and a moderate anaemia. the lambs were usually very weak, unable to stand and laying prostrate. death usually followed at this stage and three such lambs examined showed s ...19892626576
the prevalence of toxoplasma gondii antibodies in man in plateau state and meat animals in nigeria.toxoplasma gondii antibodies were found in the sera of 22.86% of people in the jos area of plateau state, nigeria. the incidence of antibodies in nigerian food animals was 17.40%, the highest being in sheep (21.92%) and lowest in goats (13.88%). cattle and horses were roughly equally infected--about 17.0%. the zoonotic potential of t. gondii in food animals is stressed and epidemiological factors are reviewed.19853992640

rift valley fever in nigeria: infections in domestic animals.between 1986 and 1989, 2,255 sera collected from six domestic animal species in nigeria were tested for antibodies to rift valley fever (rvf) virus. in addition, a longitudinal study was carried out from july 1987 to december 1988, using ten sentinel flocks on four farms at ibadan and ile-ife, to determine the activity of rvf virus (rvfv). all samples were tested for haemagglutination-inhibiting antibodies and positive sera were further screened, using the plaque reduction neutralisation test. o ...19969025143
Molecular characterization and phylogenetic study of peste des petits ruminants viruses from North central States of Nigeria.Peste des petits ruminants is an endemic disease of sheep and goats in Nigeria and vaccination has been the method of control but sporadic outbreaks have been reported. This study was carried out to characterize PPR viruses from outbreaks in 2007 and 2009 from Kaduna and Plateau States.201121726444
