Abstract

Bovine Babesiosis (BB) is a tick borne parasitic disease with worldwide over 1.3 billion bovines at potential risk of being infected. The disease, also called tick fever, causes significant mortality from infection by the protozoa upon exposure to infected ticks. An important factor in the spread...

Abstract

The eastern plains of Colombia have traditionally been used for extensive cattle ranching and form a major cattle-producing area in the country. A survey conducted to determine the prevalence and distribution of anaplasmosis, babesiosis and tick vectors across a large region of the eastern plains...

Abstract

A technique was evolved for the establishment and maintenance of a colony of Boophilus microplus (Can.) free of infection with Anaplasma marginale and Babesia spp., and for their subsequent infection with a pure isolate of B. bigemina. Confirmation was obtained from the experiments that the ticks...

Abstract

In 6 calves inoculated with Babesia argentina, antibodies measured by complement fixation (CF) and immunofluorescence (IFA) were positive one year later and there was a low heterologous response to B. bigemina for 2 to 4 months. In 6 similar calves inoculated with B. bigemina, the homologous CF...

Abstract

The epidemiology, economic importance and control of bovine anaplasmosis (caused by Anaplasma marginale) and babesiosis (caused by Babesia bigemina, B. argentina and B. major) in Colombia are described, with special reference to a report in 1975 by D. Carrier in which 3 cattle-rearing areas (Cote...

Abstract

Serological tests for infections with Trypanosoma vivax were made on cattle sera from 8 regions of Colombia. It appears that this trypanosome is endemic in all tropical areas of Colombia where cattle are kept. Evidence was obtained in 1975 and 1976 that trypanosomes from dogs, horses and capybaras...

Abstract

Babesia sp. is a protozoan hemoparasite that affects livestock worldwide. The Colombian Middle Magdalena is an enzootic region for babesiosis, but there is no previous research providing detail on its transmission cycle. This study aims to assess some Babesia sp. infection indicators in cattle and...

Abstract

Of 50 male calves, 3-4 months old, 20 were premunized simultaneously against babesiosis and anaplasmosis; 8 days later they were treated against Babesiosis with imidocarb (1 mg/kg), and 21 and 56 days after premunition they were treated i/v with dithiosemicarbazone (5 mg/kg) against anaplasmosis....
