Colonization of the tsetse fly midgut with commensal Enterobacter inhibits trypanosome infection establishment

Investigation of whether an Enterobacter bacterium (Esp_Z), which confers Anopheles gambiae with resistance to Plasmodium, is able to colonize tsetse and induce a trypanosome refractory phenotype in the fly suggests that Esp_Z could be applied to enhance the effectiveness of currently employed t setse control programs.

Influence of temperature and relative humidity on survival and fecundity of three tsetse strains

Three Glossina palpalis gambiensis strains were established and are now available for use in future AW-IPM programmes against trypanosomes in West Africa, and the survival of the three strains was dependent on temperature only, and it was unaffected by changing humidity within the tested range.

Colonization of the tsetse fly midgut with commensal Kosakonia cowanii Zambiae inhibits trypanosome infection establishment

It is proposed that Kosakonia cowanii Zambiae (Kco_Z), which confers Anopheles gambiae with resistance to Plasmodium, could be used as one component of an integrated strategy aimed at reducing the ability of tsetse to transmit pathogenic trypanosomes.

Mapping landscape friction to locate isolated tsetse populations that are candidates for elimination

The method can be used to prioritize intervention areas within the PATTEC initiative and it is applicable to the control campaigns of other vector and pest species, as well as to the conservation of endangered species in fragmented habitats.

Optimizing the Sex Ratio to Maximize the Yield of Sterile Males in Tsetse Mass-Rearing Colonies

Background tsetse flies are cyclical vectors of trypanosomosis, the causative agents of sleeping sickness or human African trypanosomosis (HAT) in humans and nagana or animal African trypanosomosis

Introduction of African Animal Trypanosomosis (AAT)/Nagana

African animal trypanosomosis (AAT), a livestock disease, is a widespread tsetse-borne disease complex caused by unicellular protozoan parasites belonging to the genus Trypanosoma that constrains mixed farming, human health, and livelihood in tropical Africa.

Trypanotolerance Sheko cattle: an option for sustainable control of bovine trypanosomiasis Self-dual Leonard pairs

: Trypanosomiasis is an impediment to cattle production and other agricultural development in tsetse-infested areas. It is a severe parasitic disease that causes loss in the production and

6. Integrated control of trypanosomosis

In many parts of Africa, tsetse eradication is impossible due to political, environmental or economic circumstances. In these situations, African animal trypanosomosis control relies on communities

Contrasting Population Structures of Two Vectors of African Trypanosomoses in Burkina Faso: Consequences for Control

Potential re-invasion of flies from adjacent river basins will have to be prevented by establishing buffer zones between the Mouhoun and the other river basin(s), in the framework of the PATTEC (Pan African Tsetse and Trypanosomosis Eradication Campaign) eradication project that is presently targeting the northern part of the Mouhl River Basin.

Long-term tsetse and trypanosomiasis management options in West Africa

Tsetse-transmitted animal trypanosomiasis is a complex disease that directly and indirectly has an impact on Africa's crop and livestock agriculture. Over the past decade awareness of this fact has

Restricted Application of Insecticides: A Promising Tsetse Control Technique, but What Do the Farmers Think of It?

The process and level of adoption in 72 farmers inhabiting the peri-urban areas of Ouagadougou and Bobo-Dioulasso was studied to highlight the factors that should be taken into consideration, to move discoveries from bench to field for an improved control of trypanosomoses vectors.

Mapping African Animal Trypanosomosis risk from the sky.

Assessment of the abundance of tsetse flies and AAT risk using remote sensing coupled to field environmental data, along a Mouhoun river section of 234 km long found the border landscape was found to be 5.4 and 15.8 times more risky than the natural and disturbed landscapes respectively.

Irradiated Male Tsetse from a 40-Year-Old Colony Are Still Competitive in a Riparian Forest in Burkina Faso

It is concluded that gamma sterilised male G. gambiensis derived from the CIRDES colony have a competitiveness that is comparable to their competitiveness obtained 35 years ago and can still be used for an area-wide integrated pest management campaign with a sterile insect component in Burkina Faso.

The prevalence of African animal trypanosomoses and tsetse presence in Western Senegal.

This paper presents the parasitological and serological prevalence data of AAT in cattle residing inside and outside the tsetse-infested areas of the target zone prior to the control effort and indicates that cyclical transmission of the parasites by t setse was predominant over mechanical transmission by numerous other biting flies present.
