Host response of some African wild Bovidae to experimental trypanosome infection



Host response of some African wild Bovidae to experimental trypanosome infection



Trypanotolerance and animal production Proceedings of the Workshop 10-14 May 1982, Lome et Avetonou, Togo Schriftenreihe der GTZ No116: 37-42



Trypanosome-free eland, waterbuck, East African goats and cattle were exposed to tsetse flies infected with Trypanosoma congolense, T. brucei or T. vivax; buffalo and oryx were similarly exposed to T. congolense. The wild species exhibited more resistance to infection than the domestic controls (cattle and goats) as evidenced by reduced number and size of skin reactions (chancre), only transient drops in PCV and reduced parasitaemias.
