Modelling the field efficacy of a genetically engineered vaccine against the cattle tick, Boophilus microplus.

Abstract

The cattle tick Boophilus microplus Canestrini (Ixodidae) is an obligate parasite of bovines in the tropics. Vaccination against the tick, using concealed antigens, has previously been demonstrated to give partial protection which can vary under field conditions. In this paper computer modelling is used to evaluate the potential impact of the vaccine on… (More)
