Abstract

Bovine babesiosis is a serious threat to the cattle industry. We prepared blood DNA samples from 13 cattle with clinical babesiosis from the Badulla (n=8), Jaffna (n=3), and Kilinochchi (n=2) districts in Sri Lanka. These DNA samples tested positive in PCR assays specific for Babesia bovis (n=9), ...

Abstract

The global impact of bovine babesiosis caused by the tick-borne apicomplexan parasites Babesia bovis, Babesia bigemina and Babesia divergens is vastly underappreciated. These parasites invade and multiply asexually in bovine red blood cells (RBCs), undergo sexual reproduction in their tick vectors...

Abstract

Among tick-borne diseases, bovine anaplasmosis and babesiosis are considered to be one of the most important in ruminants worldwide, causing significant economic losses in tropical and subtropical areas. This cross-sectional study was therefore undertaken from November 2016 to April 2017 with the...

Abstract

Purpose: Cattle recovered from clinical babesiosis become carriers for a certain period posing a threat of transmitting the disease to the entire herd. Diagnosis of carrier cattle is important for preventing outbreaks of babesiosis. The objective of the present study therefore, was to establish a...
