Cattle tick control remains a serious problem in cattle farms worldwide, due to the limited success achieved with chemicals. Although the use of vaccines for tick control may open possibilities for an integrated approach, the search for other protective antigens is still necessary to improve control. Boophilus microplus is a rich source of BmTIs, serine proteinase inhibitors that are present throughout the tick's lifecycle. The present paper reports a pen trial conducted to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
