Detection of immune response in rabbits infested with Rhipicephalus appendiculatus and Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi.

Abstract

Two groups of rabbits infested repeatedly with Rhipicephalus evertsi evertsi and R appendiculatus acquired resistance as evidenced by reduced ectoparasite engorged weights and development of anti-tick antibodies in the hosts. The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using salivary gland antigens of R appendiculatus was able to detect antibody responses… (More)
