International collaborative research: significance of tick-borne hemoparasitic diseases to world animal health.

Author information

CIRAD-EMVT, Maisons-Alfort, France.


A general review is given of the tick-borne hemoparasitic diseases of greatest economic importance in ruminants, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, theileriosis and cowdriosis, each caused by one or more species of hemoparasites. Most affected are cattle and small ruminants, buffalo are more resistant and little is known regarding camels. The situation varies from one continent or region to another. Innate and breed susceptibility to these diseases are of tremendous importance. Disease in the field cannot be considered separated from the whole complex of tick-borne diseases and from the ticks themselves, particularly if the aim is to attain endemic stability. International coordination is needed now that research funds are scarce. An appendix contains tables with hemoparasites of various domestic animals and notes with background details.
