Abstract The intracellular protozoan parasite Theileria annulata causes a severe and often fatal disease of pure and crossbred cattle in tropical and subtropical countries. Animals that recover from the infection are immune against challenge with homologous parasite strains. In the present review we refer to the role of immunocompetent cells and their products in containing the infection or in facilitating the progress of the disease. Parasite-infected host cells produce cytokines, which… CONTINUE READING
