Setaria leichungwingi Chen, 1937 (stat. nov.), parasite of Bubalus bubalis in Asia is closely related to S. labiatopapillosa, but the peribuccal chitinous crown is different. Until now, specimens determined as S. labiatopapillosa in Africa pertain...

A parasite, isolated from some unknown wild animal, was transmitted through 10 passages in high-grade cattle via Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and R. kochi. It proved to be a strain of Theileria parva of low virulence. Only 25% of infected cattle d...

Rumen ecology plays an important role in the fermentation process and in providing end-products for ruminants. These studies were carried out to investigate variations in rumen factors namely pH, NH3-N and microorganisms in cattle and swamp buffal...

At a human/livestock/wildlife interface, Escherichia coli populations were used to assess the risk of bacterial and antibiotic resistance dissemination between hosts. We used phenotypic and genotypic characterization techniques to describe the str...

Sequence variation within the 18S SSU rRNA V4 hyper-variable region can affect the accuracy of real-time hybridization probe-based diagnostics for the detection of Theileria spp. infections. This is relevant for assays that use non-specific primer...
