Abstract:
The condition known as tick-borne fever (TBF),which occurs in sheep and cattle, is due to a tick-transmitted rickettsia called Cytoecetes phagocytophila , and has frequently been suggested to have an immunosuppressive effect, predisposing animals to other disease conditions. The work in this thesis was directed towards examining c. phagocytophila as a pathogen per se and its role in other diseases of sheep such as tick pyaemia, louping-ill and pneumonic pasteurellosis. The mechanism whereby the immunosuppressive effect occurred was investigated and methods for the oontrol or prevention of 'lBF and tick pyaemia explored.
