  • Diseases
  • The Tse Tse habitat can be destroyed by alteration of vegetation so they can no longer live there.There are some drugs available that can prevent trypanosomiasis called prophylactic drugs.These drugs are very effective to protect animals during the times they are exposed to challenged diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Exploiting the genetic resistance to trypanosomiasis of indigenous ruminant livestock is one approach to the control of the disease. (fao.org)
  • 1) Control of the disease has been facilitated by the use of the card agglutination test for trypanosomiasis, which is particularly suited for large-scale screening of the populations at risk. (corisbio.com)
  • The tests were evaluated with the use of plasma from 198 patients with trypanosomiasis that was confirmed on parasitologic analysis and from 99 local controls with neither clinical nor serologic evidence of the disease. (corisbio.com)
  • Other animals, such as cows, may carry the disease and become infected in which case it is known as animal trypanosomiasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • approaches
  • The relative cost-effectiveness of the many approaches towards controlling tsetse and trypanosomiasis has also been looked at for many situations, the most comprehensive study to date being Barrett (1997). (fao.org)
  • control
  • The objective of this study is to provide overviews of the nature of the tsetse-trypanosomiasis problem and the various options for its control, and to synthesize this information to provide a guiding principle that will facilitate the definition of the role of trypanotolerant livestock in an integrated approach to combating tsetse-trypanosomiasis. (fao.org)
  • Interpretations drawn from elements captured in the framework and the expected responses and reactions of producers and private and public sector bodies interested in tsetse-trypanosomiasis control are provided. (fao.org)
  • If further evaluation in the field confirms their diagnostic accuracy, we believe that the HAT Sero- K -SeT and the HAT Sero-Strip, with an estimated price of less than $2.50 each, may become valuable tools in the control of trypanosomiasis. (corisbio.com)
  • The most significant study to appear since Swallow s review is the socio-economic volume of the three-volume study produced in 2000 by the Regional Tsetse and Trypanosomiasis Control Project (RTTCP). (fao.org)
  • patients
  • 5) To evaluate the applicability of these tests when blood was used, samples of reconstituted blood were prepared by adding plasma from patients with trypanosomiasis or from local controls to sedimented blood cells from a healthy donor. (corisbio.com)
  • research
  • 2) With the steadily decreasing prevalence of trypanosomiasis, individual rapid diagnostic tests that can be used in primary health centers, that are stable at ambient temperatures, and that are highly specific have become a research priority. (corisbio.com)
