Control of transmission

, : Control of transmission. The leishmaniases in biology and medicine Volume II Clinical aspects and control: 909-928

This review covers the control of the sandfly vectors of leishmaniasis (chemical, biological, genetic and ecological), the control of the parasites (by treatment of all infected people in a focus), the control of reservoir hosts, and protection of people from infection (by vaccination and mechanical and/or chemical protection against vector bites).

The transmission of the transfusion-associated Chagas disease is an important mechanism of its dissemination in several Latin American countries.

Vertical transmission of the protozoan parasite, Neospora caninum is highly efficient and can take two forms - endogenous transplacental transmission resulting from activation of the quiescent bradyzoite stage during pregnancy or exogenous transpl...

It is noted that there has been an increase in the incidence of babesiosis in dogs in Germany in recent years, transmitted by the tick <i>Dermacentor reticulatus</i>. Treatment is usually by imidocarb (as Imizol or Carbesia), but the u...

Biomphalaria tenagophila Taim lineage has proved to be consistently resistant to Schistosoma mansoni. Several published works have shown that this resistance is due to the innate defence system of that strain, and in cross-breedings with susceptib...

Limb segment movement times have been investigated previously in relation to Fitts' Index of Difficulty (ID = log22A/W) over various movement distances (Leisman, 1987; 1989a). Results supported Fitts' theory that different limb segments...
