The sensitivity and the specificity of the antigen detection ELISA proposed by Nantulya and Lindqvist (1989) for the diagnosis of African Animal Trypanosomiasis have been assessed in naturally-occurring infections. 1633 cattle were sampled in trypanosomiasis endemic area and examined for trypanosomes by darkground/phase contrast buffy-coat method described(More)
The chemical composition, digestibility, and voluntary feed intake by sheep of mango by-products were studied in an experiment with five dietary treatments consisting of mango peels and seed kernels, offered individually or together with urea block and a control. The mango residues were offered with rice straw and the control diet was straw only. Five(More)
Twenty-four dwarf Djallonké sheep and goats, and 16 Sahelian Fulani sheep and goats, were inoculated with strains of Trypanosoma vivax and Trypanosoma congolense to compare their degree of susceptibility to trypanosomosis. One animal from each breed was used as a control. Anaemia was observed in all inoculated animals. In the group of animals inoculated(More)
An antigen detection ELISA for the diagnosis of trypanosomes was recently proposed by Nantulya and Lindqvist (1989). Based on species-specific monoclonal antibodies, this test could be used to diagnose a current infection and to identify the causing trypanosomes. The test was evaluated at CRTA during experimental infections in small ruminants and with sera(More)
