In a preliminary experiment eight Bos indicus type cattle were inoculated with 10(9) cells of a Bos taurus lymphoblastoid cell line infected with Theileria parva schizonts. Four cattle showed patent infections and one died of theileriosis. On challenge of the surviving cattle with a tick derived stabilate of the same stock of T. parva no animal died of theileriosis. To test the susceptibility of Bos taurus and Bos indicus cattle to cell lines of both cattle types infected with T. parva of the… CONTINUE READING
