Nucleotide sequencing of SSU rRNA and MPSP genes revealed the presence of four Theileria genotypes, with the occurrence of ikeda and type 4 (type C) previously not reported to occur and silent mutation is thought to have enhanced parasite evasion of the host immune response causing the outbreak.

It is concluded that camel trypanosomiasis in Sudan is apparently caused by a single parasite species T. evansi and there were no other typanosomes species detected.
Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification for Detection of African Trypanosomes
The conditions for a highly sensitive, specific, and easy diagnostic assay based on LAMP technology for the detection of parasites in the Trypanosoma brucei group are reported, showing that the sensitivity of the LAMP-based method for detection of trypanosomes in vitro is up to 100 times higher than that of PCR-based methods.
Infection of bovine immunodeficiency virus and bovine leukemia virus in water buffalo and cattle populations in Pakistan.
BIV-seropositive waterbuffaloes and cattle were found to have BIV proviral DNA in the peripheral blood mononuclear cells determined by nested polymerase chain reaction, the first report of BIV infections in water buffaloes.
A study of the systematics of Theileria spp. based upon small-subunit ribosomal RNA gene sequences
The current results show that the United States bovine Theileria isolates are not T. mutans because they have T. buffeli Warwick and T.buffeli Marula (Type A) and/or Type D (species undesignated) SSU rRNA gene sequences.
Microbial Population Analysis of the Salivary Glands of Ticks; A Possible Strategy for the Surveillance of Bacterial Pathogens
The microbial populations in tick salivary glands were different between tick species, indicating that host specificities may play an important role in determining the microbial complement.
Non-Transforming Theileria Parasites of Ruminants
Infection with non-transforming, benign Theileria species is generally characterized by the lack of schizont development in leucocytes and the absence of fatal lymphoproliferation. The occurrence of…
