Abstract
This chapter reviews available literature on aspects of quantitating Theileria parva sporozoite stabilates for immunisation and related fields of research. Immunisation by the Infection and Treatment (I & T) method is currently the only technique for protecting susceptible cattle against East Coast fever, a disease of economic importance in eastern central and southern Africa. The history, epidemiology and control options of the disease are presented in brief.
