  • Cowdria
  • Moreover, antibodies were detected in nine out of nine sheep infected with one of three different stocks of Cowdria and in sera from calves experimentally infected by two different strains of heartwater. (nih.gov)
  • Lack of cross-reactivity and detection of antibodies to eight geographically widely distributed stocks of Cowdria, makes the competition ELISA a promising test for use in heartwater endemic areas. (nih.gov)
  • tick-borne di
  • The Center of Excellence for Vector Borne-Diseases is an interdisciplinary research center focused on pathogenesis, surveillance and prevention of tick-borne diseases and other vector-borne diseases of significant importance to animal and human health. (k-state.edu)
  • Pathogens that cause tick-borne diseases (TBDs), such as borreliosis or anaplasmosis, constitute a significant problem for the health of humans, companion animals and livestock worldwide. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Second Order read: Adjourned debate on motion on the call to control tick-borne diseases affecting livestock in Zimbabwe. (gov.zw)
  • Firstly, I would like to thank the mover of the motion Hon. Sen. Chimbudzi for the motion which deals with tick-borne diseases which have almost wiped out our livestock in this country. (gov.zw)
  • Some people are now spraying their cattle with dipping chemicals using knapsacks so as to protect them from tick-borne diseases. (gov.zw)
  • I again reiterate that the resettlement officers and officials from the Ministry should go into the resettled areas and see how best they can come up with solutions to ensure that livestock can be dipped to protect them from tick-borne diseases. (gov.zw)
  • In each and every dip-tank, we should pour that water so that our beasts are always in good state without diseases, particularly the tick borne diseases because of lack of dipping. (gov.zw)
  • goat
  • Prevention is always better than cure, and it is therefore important that any goat introduced to an existing flock be disease-free and healthy. (farmersweekly.co.za)
  • Be aware of common goat diseases - and their symptoms - prevalent in the area, and implement an appropriate preventative vaccination programme. (farmersweekly.co.za)
  • vector
  • Our expertise in vector-borne disease research and the availability of a high containment facility at Kansas State University - the Biosecurity Research Institute - and the future establishment of the NBAF in Manhattan give us a unique ability to study a pathogen that has not been studied before in the U.S. (k-state.edu)
  • The goals of the center are to prepare Kansas State University for building a strong program on vector-borne diseases, establishing a tick rearing facility, developing a network to build collaborative research involving scientists from the university with other academic institutions from the U.S. and abroad, training new generation of scientists with expertise on vector-borne diseases, developing and offering continuing education workshops, and developing additional resources. (k-state.edu)
  • Kansas State University's Center of Excellence for Vector-Borne Diseases is using a grant from the state's National Bio and Agro-defense Facility Transition Fund and matching gift from medical and veterinary technology company Abaxis to study heartwater, a deadly tick-transmitted pathogen in livestock. (k-state.edu)
  • The tropical bont tick has also been implicated as a vector or potential vector for several diseases that include Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, Dugbe virus, yellow fever virus, Rickettsia africae (African tick bite fever) and Jos virus (Merck 2011). (ufl.edu)

  • Zimbabwe
  • Harare - A number of buffalo recently found dead on an island in the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe died of a tick-borne disease and not cyanide poisoning, a conservation group announced on Wednesday. (news24.com)
  • prevalence
  • The one concerns buying wildlife from or moving them to regions with a known prevalence of some diseases and the other with buying wildlife which can introduce diseases to a wildlife ranch because they do not yet show the clinical symptoms of such diseases at the time of buying, or because the symptoms are nor recognized by the buyer. (leopard.tv)
  • infectious disease
  • eggs per gram of faeces as the three important infections statistically associated with infectious disease mortality in these calves. (up.ac.za)
  • Natural selection pressure is causing infectious disease agents to adapt and change. (aasv.org)
  • veterinary
  • These images were annotated by Dr. Steve Sorden and Dr. Claire Andreasen and funding was provided by a USDA Higher Education Challenge Grant in collaboration with the Iowa State University Department of Veterinary Pathology, Center for Food Security and Public Health (CFSPH), Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP), and Plum Island Animal Disease Center (PIADC). (iastate.edu)
  • Confirmation of the disease can only be done in an approved veterinary laboratory. (leopard.tv)
  • symptoms
  • The disease's name, heartwater, is derived from the hydropericardium symptoms that are commonly seen with it. (k-state.edu)
  • Other wildlife in which the disease has been recorded include the blue wildebeest, African savanna buffalo, eland, giraffe, sable antelope and steenbok, but in them the symptoms are usually relatively mild. (leopard.tv)
  • A second major pitfall is buying sick wildlife which are still developing diseases and do not yet show the clinical symptoms. (leopard.tv)
  • viral
  • In Kenya, TBPs (including viral diseases-arboviruses) like Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), Dugbe, Kupe, and Hazara, as well as hemoparasites that cause babesiosis, theileriosis, and rickettsiosis, are major impediments to livestock productivity and public health ( 3 - 6 ). (frontiersin.org)
  • mainland
  • The disease is characterized by fever, neurological signs, hydrothorax, ascites, edema of the lungs and high mortality rates up to 90 percent can occur in livestock if introduced into a non-endemic area, such as to the mainland U.S. (k-state.edu)
  • fever
  • In addition to the loss of markets, FADs such as classical swine fever, foot-and-mouth disease, and highly pathogenic avian influenza can cause high death rates, severe illness, and (or) production losses. (aasv.org)
  • Agent
  • Frequent and rapid interstate movement of animals occurs routinely in the United States, allowing an infectious agent to spread into many states before the source herd shows clinical signs of disease. (aasv.org)
  • outbreak
  • The 1997 outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in Taiwan was devastating for that country's pork industry, as 4 million pigs were destroyed and virtually all export markets were lost. (aasv.org)
  • The biggest nightmare of any wildlife rancher is an outbreak of an infective disease in his wildlife. (leopard.tv)
  • occur
  • The best option is not to expose susceptible wildlife to this parasite and not to bring wildlife that are susceptible to heartwater disease to regions where they do not occur naturally. (leopard.tv)
  • research
  • This latter achievement boosted research into the disease at a time when biology was moving into the molecular genetic age. (oie.int)
  • surveillance
  • Disease surveillance is very important for early FAD detection and for accurate risk analysis. (aasv.org)
  • As traditional program diseases such as brucellosis and tuberculosis (and very soon pseudorabies) are eradicated and the current surveillance funding decreases, new surveillance systems for disease monitoring will be needed. (aasv.org)
  • African
  • In process, we might be losing unique genetic attributes, especially those responsible for adaptations to the past, current, and even future African environmental challenges, such as parasitic infectious diseases, heat and drought tolerance etc. (ajas.info)
