Table 4 Control of H. longicornis infestation in rabbits vaccinated with KLH-LEE

From: Evaluation on two types of paramyosin vaccines for the control of Haemaphysalis longicornis infestations in rabbits

Trial 2 Total number of ticks Number of biting ticks Feeding time (day) Engorgement weight (mg) Oviposition (mg) Hatchability (%) NET EWPF H Eff (%)
Control group (n = 6) 240 234 7.32 ± 0.06 178.02 ± 3.44 88.28 ± 2.94 85.51 ± 1.21  
KLH group (n = 6) 240 225 7.04 ± 0.04 174.04 ± 3.32 83.67 ± 3.36 83.05 ± 2.10     
KLH-LEE group (n = 6) 240 225 6.95 ± 0.44* 126.99 ± 3.53*# 39.20 ± 2.20*# 51.16 ± 2.07*# 1.00 0.47 0.62 70.86
  1. Formulas for the calculation of reductions in biting ticks (NET), oviposition (EWPF) and hatch (H) are described in the Methods section. Efficacy (Eff) = overall efficacy compared with control = 100 [1 − (NET × EWPF × H)]. The number of rabbits immunized in each group is six (n = 6)
