theileria parva genetic diversity and haemoparasite prevalence in cattle and wildlife in and around lake mburo national park in uganda.wildlife, especially cape buffalo (syncerus caffer), are thought to act as a reservoir for many of the important tick-borne pathogens of cattle. in this study, we have determined the prevalence of the most significant tick-borne haemoparasites in wildlife (buffalo, impala, eland and bushbuck) as well as in cattle grazing inside and neighbouring lake mburo national park (lmnp) in uganda. a high percentage of buffalo were carriers of theileria parva, theileria mutans, theileria velifera, theileria ...201120827491
fatal theileriosis in eland (taurotragus oryx): pathology of natural and experimental cases.clinical, parasitological and pathological studies were made on five eland infected with theileria. three were natural theileria infections while the other two were experimental cases. all eland died. generalised lymph node enlargement was a common feature. wasting occurred in the more prolonged cases and in two of the field cases severe terminal diarrhoea developed. the third field case died in severe respiratory distress. in all cases, up to 50 per cent piroplasm parasitaemia was wound and sch ...19807193340
the development of theileria=cytauxzoon taurotragi (martin and brocklesby, 1960) from eland in its tick vector rhipicephalus appendiculatus.the sexual cycle of theileria taurotragi was identified in the gut lumen of replete rhipicephalus appendiculatur nymphs maintained at 28 degrees c which had fed on eland with rising parasitaemias. macro- and micro-gametes developed from ring-form piroplasms within 24 h after repletion. the microgamonts were elongate with 2 or more lateral projections. the nuclei of the microgamonts divided into 4 and the microgamonts differentiated into 4 thread-like microgametes each with a central nucleus. rou ...19806775268
