    Trypanosomosis in domestic livestock negatively impacts food production and economic growth in many parts of the world, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. The identification of mechanisms that mediate depressed immune responses might suggest novel disease intervention strategies TRYPANOSOMIASIS. Consistent with results of trypanosome prevalence surveys during intervention, the data at the end of the intervention indicated a significantly (p intervention area from % before testing of best-bet strategies to % after their implementation.

Trypanosomiasis poses a considerable constraint on livestock-agricultural development in tsetse-infested areas of sub-Saharan Africa. For various and complex reasons, many efforts to limit or eradicate trypanosomiasis have failed or have had limited success.

However, in certain areas of West Africa, livestock production remains impossible, despite the presence of tsetse fly, though the use of. Get this from a library. Trypanotolerant livestock in the context of trypanosomiasis intervention strategies.

[Kwaku Agyemang.] -- Trypanosomiasis poses a considerable constraint on livestock-agricultural development in tsetse-infested areas of sub-Saharan Africa. In certain areas of West Africa, livestock production remains. Note: tryps = trypanosomiasis. Source: FAO, Many governments in the region have responded to the option of using trypanotolerant livestock in combating the threat of tsetse-transmitted trypanosomiasis, as evidenced by the large number of externally-funded projects executed during the s and s (ILCA, a; de Haan, ) and the continued consideration of trypanotolerant.

Trypanotolerance (see Glossary) is the ability to survive, reproduce and remain productive under trypanosomiasis risk without the need for the use of chemicals to control the vector or drugs to control the offers farmers an important option for sustainable livestock production in areas at risk from trypanosomiasis.

Contrary to the widespread belief that these trypanotolerant Cited by:   The use of trypanotolerant breeds in the mainly trypanosomiasis endemic regions of SSA (where typically the production of trypanosusceptible animals is already limited by the disease prevalence) has minimal epidemiological implications in terms of the danger of becoming a reservoir for the disease to non-tolerant by: Trypanotolerant livestock in the context of trypanosomiasis intervention strategies, in PAAT Technical and Scientific Series 7 (Rome: Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations;).

African animal trypanosomiasis is a major livestock health challenge in Africa. The current perspective on the complexity of trypanosome parasites– host interaction.

There is the need to identify refined trypanotolerant QTL to facilitate genomic selection. O human and 3 million livestock deaths recorded annually in sub-Saharan Africa are due to the disease (Mulumba, ). The socio-economic impact of animal trypanosomiasis is quite difficult to analyze, but an estimate of losses amounting to over million US dollars in meat, milk, loss in traction power and control program have been.

Various methods have been implemented to control African trypanosomiasis ; including (i) vector control, (ii) reducing the proximity of livestock to reservoir hosts, (iii) development op trypanotolerant livestock (disease-resistant breeds) (5, 21), and (iv) using trypanocidal drugs.

Fly control is another option but is difficult to implement. The main approaches to controlling African trypanosomiasis are to reduce the reservoirs of infection and the presence of the tsetse fly.

Separation of livestock and wild animals is effective but difficult. Use of trypanotolerant livestock breeds is the only option is some areas where economic restraints prevent constant treatment and control.

Tsetse fly control by sprays, traps, dips and release of sterile male flies is effective but expensive and time-consuming. World's Best PowerPoint Templates - CrystalGraphics offers more PowerPoint templates than anyone else in the world, with over 4 million to choose from.
