Theileria lestoquardi is a tick-borne protozoan parasite and highly pathogenic for sheep. The disease caused by the pathogen is known as malignant ovine theileriosis (MOT) and is transmitted by Hyalomma ticks. Control of the disease can be achieved by immunization of sheep with attenuated T. lestoquardi schizont-infected ovine cells that provides the animal with solid immunity. The approach of using the attenuated vaccine against malignant ovine theileriosis has been carried out successfully in Iraq and Iran. Better characterization of attenuated cell lines could result in the identification of markers that would allow more rapid selection of attenuated vaccine ...
