Porcine trypanosomiasis



Porcine trypanosomiasis



Veterinary Record 59(47): 648-648



The pathogenicity of T. brucei, T. vivax and T. congolense for pigs was studied using both purebred Large Whites and Large Blacks and some crosses between these and the indigenous pig. Infection was by inoculation of blood in most cases, but a few pigs were infected by permitting infected tsetse flies to bite them. Infection with all three species was readily established as demonstrated by examination of the blood for trypanosomes.
