Since its discovery, bovine theileriosis has caused major socioeconomic losses in sub-Saharan Africa. Acaricide resistance of the intermediate host, paucity of therapeutics, and lack of sufficiently cross-protective vaccines increase the risk of parasite spread due to global warming. Here, we highlight three important areas that require investigation to develop next-generation vaccines.
- Theileria parva
- cellular immunity
- drug resistance
- infection and treatment method (ITM)
- protein modelling
