Abstract
The indirect fluorescent antibody test was applied to the sera of cattle experimentally infected with East Coast fever (Theileria parva infection). A significant rise in antibody titre could be demonstrated following experimental infection, even in the absence of detectable macroschizonts. This antibody rise was indicative of immunity to severe challenge. The test was a more reliable method of predicting immunity induced by experimental East Coast fever than was examination of Giemsa-stained lymph node biopsy smears.
