Trypanosomosis in Ethiopia
TLDR
This data indicates that Tsetse fly infestation in Ethiopia is more a threat to livestock than to human health because of the high prevalence of trypanosomosis in the population. Expand
Biting flies and Trypanosoma vivax infection in three highland districts bordering lake Tana, Ethiopia.
TLDR
Seasonal comparison showed higher fly catches in the late rainy season than the early dry season, which indicated that T. vivax infections culminate in cattle at the same time as mechanical vectors such as Stomoxys sp. Expand
Multiple-drug resistant Trypanosoma congolense populations in village cattle of Metekel district, north-west Ethiopia.
TLDR
It is concluded that the prophylactic activity of isometamidium is greatly reduced for some of the T. congolense populations present in the area, and in addition there is resistance to diminazene aceturate in this trypanosome species. Expand
Evaluation of Deltamethrin applications in the control of tsetse and trypanosomosis in the southern rift valley areas of Ethiopia.
TLDR
It is recommended to continue the current tsetse suppression by using the integrated approach of both techniques under consideration, and a relatively better efficacy was attained by using Deltamethrin pour-on formulation than targets in controlling t setse and trypanosomiosis. Expand
Serological and parasitological survey of dourine in the Arsi–Bale highlands of Ethiopia
TLDR
Different characteristic signs of dourine were observed and lameness in one or both legs, partial dragging and stiffness of the hind legs and incoordination were the dominant signs observed as nervous form of the disease. Expand
Seroprevalence of contagious caprine pleuropneumonia in Borana and Guji lowlands, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
The questionnaire survey has revealed that contact at watering points, restocking, lack of veterinary service, and large flock size were the major factors for the spread and occurrence of the disease in the area. Expand
Epidemiology of Bovine Trypanosomosis in the Abay (Blue Nile) Basin Areas of Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
The regression analysis indicated that the herd average PCV decreased with the increasing prevalence of trypanosome infections in both seasons, and was significantly higher in the lowland areas than in the midland areas in both the late rainy season and the dry season. Expand
Application of field methods to assess isometamidium resistance of trypanosomes in cattle in western Ethiopia.
TLDR
The two indices used in assessing isometamidium resistance, namely the proportion of infections during an 8-week follow-up period and the ratio of mean hazards in an isometricamidium treated versus untreated group, provided consistent results across the three villages. Expand
Comparative clinico-haematological analysis in young Zebu cattle experimentally infected with Trypanosoma vivax isolates from tsetse infested and non-tsetse infested areas of Northwest Ethiopia
TLDR
Clinical signs and significant reduction in haematological values in the infected groups indicated the pathogenicity of the T. vivax parasites can be considered as nearly as important as that of its counterpart derived from the tsetse infested area. Expand
Small ruminants trypanosomosis in the southwest of Ethiopia
TLDR
The study revealed that trypanosomosis in sheep and goats is an important disease and small ruminants serve as a potential reservoir of infection for other animals. Expand
