A history of ticks and tick-borne diseases of cattle in Rhodesia


, : A history of ticks and tick-borne diseases of cattle in Rhodesia. Rhodesian Veterinary Journal 10(2): 28-40

An historical account is given of the ticks affecting cattle in Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), of their control by dipping, and of the diseases they transmit (in particular East Coast fever caused by Theileria parva, and other theilerial diseases). The success of dipping has been shown by the complete eradication of East Coast fever from the country and a reduction of the incidence of most other tick-borne diseases to extremely low levels.

Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a common soft-tissue sarcoma of childhood in need of more effective therapeutic options. The expression of p53 in RMS is heterogeneous such that some tumors are wild-type whereas others are p53 mutant. The small molecule...
