Table 1 Mean differential WBC counts during the study period (mean of recordings of 8 consecutive weeks) in young Zebu cattle experimentally infected with T. vivax isolates from tsetse infested (TT) and non-tsetse infested (NT) areas and non-infected control (NIC) groups

From: Comparative clinico-pathological observations in young Zebu (Bos indicus) cattle experimentally infected with Trypanosoma vivax isolates from tsetse infested and non-tsetse areas of Northwest Ethiopia
